Do hardcore 'conspiracy theory' believers make you nervous?

You know, the ones who talk about the government and spying. I worry that if a real crisis did happen, they'd be the ones panicking.
I think it's good to be informed, but it shouldn't border paranoia.

  • Do mean the Mel Gibson character from Conspiracy Theory type? I don't really know any like that, but I hear rumblings from groups. If they do panic, what damage will they do. They can't fire nuclear weapons, give orders of attack, or raise an army. As I understand it, these are the ones who go underground or hold up in a mountain cabin. So, what harm is that really?

  • That make me nervous? LOL. No, not really. I find some annoying, but they don't make me nervous. Why would they, are they going to spontaneously combust?

  • I like reading conspiracy theories. I also like seeing them debunked.

  • Nope, some of them I believe, some of them I don't...I wasn't worried about the Y2K issue, but just try and convince me that the JFK assassination went down like we are lead to believe. (c:

  • LOL, bumping your post. I can read between the lines.
    If your life revolved around CM and cyberspace all day, all the panicking over the internet spying I suppose would bother you.
    It's mental illness, not a conspiracy theory my dear.

    No, they don't make me nervous. Actually I feel bad for them because they can't really enjoy life being so paranoid all the time :/

  • No. They all remind me of Dale Gribble on the cartoon "King of the Hill." And, believe me, that is not a complement.

  • No, they make me laugh. Dh worked with a guy who was all over the Masonic/Illuminati BS. Told us they were going to blow up Saturn for Y2K. I could barely keep a straight face.

    For all the whining you do about it - you sure do devote a lot of time to following people around and keeping tabs on what they post. Talk about obsessed.

    What's sad are the clueless people - not just the ones who think there are black helicopters, the ones who think there's a big gay movement out to get them, the ones who think all Muslims are terrorists, the ones who think it's a Christian nation that will eventually kick out all the evil "non-believers". Those are the scary and creepy people. Well, those, and the idiots who follow them around like puppy dogs licking them and parroting everything they say.
