    There's generally two types of conspiracy theories.

    Those that have an element of truth to them, so that if they came out as being true then you're not really surprised by it. Like the Panama Papers or even the government 'spying' on people.

    Then there's the real what I call 'wacky' stuff. Aliens, chemtrails, 9/11 truthers and other weird nonsense.
    Chemtrails were hugely popular around here. Everyone was talking about, there were even shows about it. Now, I never payed attention to the sky that much, after all, I'm not mentally ill to stare at it for two hours just to see whether that trail is gonna stay there or not.
    But there's wacky stuff, as you call them, that have turned out to be true, at least partially. After the floods we had here we were getting all sorts of donations, amongst which were raspberry plants from Ukraine or Poland, can't really remember. Long story short, conspiracy theorists were right about them 'cause they were ill and had destroyes other, healthy, plants and the soil, which will be unusable for the next few years. Why did they send it to us, we were competition.

    Just had a lunch, going to rest a bit more, and then I'm off to study Psychology. "Just" 70 pages to learn.

    Well that's an example of some level of 'truth' to them and not so much of a conspiracy. That's just plain nasty. Chemtrails on the other hand make absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Don't get me started on that. LOL! That's just a science experiment that ignorant people get 'scared' about because they don't understand it. Like most science that people don't understand.

    I'm still struggling with the anti-vax ideas...

    Btw, the other day when we were talking about vinyl, I decided to go dig my vinyl LPs out of storage. For some reason I was thinking that I was missing like half of my collection, but then I remembered a while back I actually got rid of a bunch of LPs that I would never listen to. I wanted to scale down my collection to a more manageable size. If anyone's ever owned a good size vinyl collection, you know how heavy they are, and what a PITA they are to move.

    Of course I kept all the best stuff! Classic rock, metal, etc... I now have just a few hundred LPs, but all good stuff!

    Thanks.. I'm not sure what you mean by "an house" but I've been playing this game a lot longer than these people I'm dealing with now. Like I was saying, it's just going to take a little time, but when mistakes happen and something goes wrong, (and it will) everything will be lined up just right to where there will be nobody else to blame but my prime target. They don't understand that this ain't my first rodeo lol...
    Hey Ed, here's another thought to the point i raised earlier about change in the perceptions of work standards.

    So, I'm walking in the hallway at work and deputy director pulled me to the side. She decided to give me a compliment stating she likes how the fact that I am on time and I don't call out from work, since i was sick two months ago. I'm like in my head "but this is what I'm paid to do...show up on time and work".

    She then decides to be a little snarky and say - "I told your supervisor that if your team ever has a week where you all show up on time and don't call out, I'll buy the first round of drinks. I don't think I'll be doing that soon".

    I'm thinking in my head: "shower me with a raise and not drinks..., not because i merely show up to work on time, but I've been good at my job for 9 years."

    Ah, the never ending saga betwen science and ignorance. They started doing that crap here too, but they don't have many 'followers', people were getting those since forever, and there's no reason to change that, 'cause you know, it's good for us and stuff like that. But it seems that some people are too ignorant and stubborn to realise that.

    Soo, I thought it was 70 pages, turns out it's more of a 90. Anyway, I'm half way through, gonna take a break for at least a 30 minutes and then go back and hopefully learn at least another 20.

    Uhh, in which point of my life am I going to need the knowledge of how emotions are made, or what types of studying there are. I mean, all of this stuff are happening automatically, I know that's the point of Psychology, but I just don't want to go this deep into that stuff.

    You're not knowing your KISS albums lol... That's their very first self titled album from 1974.

    The album you're referring to is the Dynasty (1979) album which I have also. I have all of their old albums from the original "make up" days...
