RH - I have a theorist in my family, too. Our conversations exhaust me.

("Theorist". That's a nice word. So much politer than "nutjob" ;-) .)

What is it with that age group? We are constantly harangued for not looking into things deeply enough, or questioning what we read or are told. I usually come away from these conversations feeling mad, sad and utterly confused.

Urgh. Fortunately we don't have that problem and hubby enjoys debunking any theories that are floating about.

One of my cousins is a terrible theorist. Works as a nurse in an ICU but still genuinely believes that cancer cures are being Hidden For The Profit Of Big Pharma and marijuana and DCA would cure them all. Has never managed to work out how many people he knows (and in my case is related to) would have to be in the conspiracy for it to work.

My mother's the one for the conspiracy theories. She used to have a pal who was allegedly party to all sorts of classified high level IT information and he fed her all sorts of shite and got terribly defensive when I used words like "nutjob" or "Walter Mitty" or "the drugs used for his disabling medical condition sometimes play havoc with your brain". She makes up her own now he's dead.

Got something to say?
