My wife's crazy conspiracy theory nut uncle posted this on Facebook. I couldn't stop laughing. How's this for taking little shards of truth mixed with a whole bunch of blatant untruths and blowing them way out of proportion?

The Internet has proven to be the perfect vehicle for any sort of nonsense to be circulated. If it circulates fast enough (think of the contents of the porcelain receptacle after you push the handle), it goes down the drain, becomes viral, and is somehow given credibility. If someone goes to the trouble to make a You Tube video of it, it is then transformed into THE TRUTH. I suspect it will take a while before people become immune to this particular Big Steaming Pile.

Mom and dad tried to get me to stop smoking dope because it would effect me "hormonally". I told them I already had man boobs, so no worries!

Full disclosure, I don't smoke anymore. Haven't in 5 or 6 years.

I know man. 9/11 killed my "smoking" really. Lived by myself and was a News Junkie. Spent about 6 months totally smoked out trying to figure where "They" were gonna come from, couldn't catch a buzz without insane bouts of paranoia. Finally quit pretty much cold turkey, had the odd puff with friends here and there after that, but still ended up with crazy paranoia setting in. Probably for the best, had more money to spend on beer.

I stopped listening at "reduced libido". This EAC obviously has no idea what the hell he's talking about. The only time my libido is reduced is when i'm sleeping. I can't speak for the rest of you guys n gals, but I can't imagine people leaving a bar after a couple of beers saying "Wow, you're so sexy, lets go fire up the kindle and read the latest Alex Cross novel".

They say that if you put a million monkeys at a million typewriters, sooner or later they'll write Shakespeare. The Internet has proven that does not happen.
