Occasionally I think that, snarky, arch and condescending though I am about the left tail of the intellectual bell curve, I don't really realize how damn clueless those folks actually are.

Here's somebody who's very concerned about NASA "bombing" the moon. For example:
I can’t stand it that the US just unilaterally decides it can bomb the moon if it wants to. An overwhelming number of comments here have been from non-Americans who think the US is a big bully and does what it wants, when it wants. I happen to agree. I also don’t like the manner in which they are going about it, bombing and blasting. Why does so much have to be so destructive? It doesn’t, but that mentality persists in all areas, I don’t know why I should expect it to be any different in this.
That person also seems to think that this is for real, as well as this.

Here's another guy. He thinks that:
The NASA moon bombing, a component of the LCROSS mission, may also trigger conflict with known extraterrestrial civilizations on the moon as reported on the moon in witnessed statements by U.S. astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, and in witnessed statements to NSA (National Security Agency) photos and documents regarding an extraterrestrial base on the dark side of the moon.
Here's a variety of loons--astrologers and whatnot.

Then there's this:
And I don't care Mr. rocket scientist that you don't bleed it out every month--don't go releasing your man-period energy by blowing up stellar bodies, okay?!?

And I'm not worried about the alien inhabitants like some internerds out there, but I'll tell you one thing I know--the GODDESS is going to be fucking PISSED. You don't just go and blow up the Goddess's son/lover like that. Are you crazy? Don't you know 2012 is coming up? Of course you do, you know everything. So you should know that it's probably not a good time to start fucking with planetary orbits and gravitational pulls.
There's a apparently whole level of stupid out there we never have any contact with...

I met a girl who claimed she could walk through walls. We all invited her to try. She didn't.

I wonder to what extent these people believe this bullshit in an actual, practical sense versus the extent to which they merely pretend it's true because it pleases them to do so.

My question: Is the population getting more and more insane, or have we always been batshit and just now have the media to learn how rare sanity is? If we've always been like this, there's hope for democracy yet, since it must be fantastically resilient even though the inmates do run the asylum.

History shows we've always had great capacity for craaaziness. Someone actually believed the first king to say that God gave him the right to be king.

Could it be that susceptibility to rank steaming bullshit is actually adaptive for a social species? In which case it's really this ragtag band of rationalists (no capital R) who are anti-social...
