I couldn't help myself - I just had to click on another conspiracy theory video late one night when I should have been asleep. As I became immersed in the wild claims and "evidence" being presented, I knew in the back of my mind that it was all nonsense. But there was something strangely compelling about these elaborate tales.
There is said to be a thin line between genius and insanity. Well, there must also be a thin line between skepticism and being a total sucker for crazy conspiracy theories. Despite knowing better, I find myself continually falling down the rabbit hole of outlandish claims about coverups, secret societies, and shadowy cabals controlling world events.
Whether it's reptilian shapeshifters infiltrating governments or chemtrails being used for secret weather manipulation programs, I just can't get enough. Something about the elaborate storytelling hints of danger really hooks me in. It's like a guilty pleasure I can't seem to shake, no matter how much common sense tells me to ignore such preposterous claims.
I tell myself I'm just watching to get a good laugh at the wacky ideas people come up with. But who am I kidding? I'm totally captivated by these conspiracies, no matter how illogical or unfounded they may be. It's gotten so bad that the other night, I found myself wondering if the garlic in my fridge had been tampered with by the secret spice cartel.
Clearly, I've gone off the deep end and need an intervention, preferably led by a level-headed therapist who isn't "in on it." In the meantime, if anyone needs me, I'll be pouring over clues about who really assassinated JFK with a gang of crisis actors in bootleg Disney World. The truth is out there...somewhere between the aisles of cumin and paprika.
