People believe some really, uh, interesting stuff. There are a bunch, for example, who think that “the Government” has a secret program and all planes are spraying chemicals in the sky. The contrails we see, well they’re not contrails, they’re “chemtrails”, loaded with poison or mind control substances or both, depending on who’s doing the theorizing.
If you explain contrails to them, that water is one of the products of combustion and it becomes a cloud when exiting the airplane, causing surrounding water to condense, too, they’ve got an answer for that. “No, silly,” they say, “we know what contrails are. But chemtrails are different! The contrails don’t stay around like the chemtrails do!” Oh okay…. but since they’re clouds I don’t see why contrails shouldn’t just stick around like clouds. Maybe they have an answer for that one, too.
Anyway, just like any other nutty conspiracy theory focused around government conspiracies to poison us with “chemicals,” there are chemtrail theorists here in Portland. They are planning a march or something like that. I had a nice little chat with one of them on their facebook page. I decided I’d share it with you to show you how nice some people are.
But it didn’t stop there. Apparently if you oppose this fellow’s agenda, you should be punished by death! Seems legit.
