Last night, I was browsing the forum and found quite a few threads that suggested that somebody should wear their tin foil hat.

Usually, for such a comment to be made, the post must appear absolutely absurd to the commenter.

Thus, I wondered:

What is the most absurd, outrageous, outlandish comment, argument, or conclusion you have encountered on this forum?

Obviously, I think we need to abstain from calling people out - so let's keep it friendly, okay?

I've only been here for a couple of months. However, I bet I could have a ton of fun with the CD Archives by looking in them to find some outlandish stuff. Knowing human nature, there's probably some real doozies even from way, back.

Indeed. Since our current POTUS is a Dem., I think that recent threads may strongly be biased toward crazy comments about him. I would bet, though, that there are quite a few absolute whammies during the Bush administration as well. There was obviously a lot of anger back then, too, that MUST have resulted in some really absurd statements.

I like the ones about Sharia Law taking over the USA.

We need a giant tin foil hat that will encompass all the paranoid lawmakers and agency drones in DC.
They see terrorists and danger awaiting the unsuspecting taxpayer everywhere they look.

Posting about vaccine hysteria from Whale.to, a site run by a schizophrenic pig farmer in England.

Anything about Fluoride and mind control.

Oh, and the raving madness from Alex Jones about the evil "Agenda 21".

Oh yeah, anyone believing raving mad David Icke or Gene Ray's Time Cube really takes the cake. They are insane, but people actually believing in them is absurd.

There have been a few zombie threads. I may have missed or forgotten something nuttier, but these would have to be way up there.

I think the dumbest threads are the ones cheerleading how unbiased FAUX "news" is or extolling the high IQ of certain semi retarded political pundits/talking heads.

There are about 3 non stop thread starters of that type drivel on C-D that I can think of right off hand that could share that Golden Tinfoil hat
