I still have faith that Tupac is alive :(
Yeah, pretty much this. Although if someone officially came out and said “An F-15 from Langley shot down Flight 93” there’s a fairly small group of people who were working the flight lines in the mid-Atlantic region that morning who would nod their heads, since that rumor spread internally fairly quickly that day, and in the days that followed the rest of that week.
None taken, I was a dumb 13 - 16 year old. I no longer believe in such things though I'm still dumb.
That...actually sounds a little bit like schizophrenia. I'm not a doctor, and I don't think an actual doctor worth his/her salt would diagnose just based on that anecdote, but...that's what it sounds like. Chances of onset typically spike for males in their early 20's; that much I remember from class.A friend got divorced recently, and I didn't know the details. But then he started posting on fb about how his ex-wife thought he was having a mental illness, and that that was the cause behind the divorce. Thing is, he started hearing his name in music videos and in Snapchat-videos taken of their kids. She didn't hear it, nobody else either. So he has developed this idea that Snapchat deliberately inserts his name, and messages to him (such as "Die, *name*") in his snaps. He's been posting lots of snaps as "evidence" of this lately. No use telling him that there's nothing there - he just retorts that your hearing isn't good enough. It's scary how quickly and easily he made up this conspiracy theory and how ardently he believes in it - he used to be such a smart guy. There must be tons of conspiracy theories out there that started with a similar mental breakdown.
