How Conspiracy Theories Get Started

A: So this plane was doing aerobatics above the whole time…

Me: The aerobatics were a distraction.  It was a spy plane.

A: You think they were watching us?  While doing aerobatics?  Really?

Me: Oh, they can listen from planes, too.

A: Well, they have laser microphones, sure.  But they were doing aerobatics!

Me: Gyroscopically stabilized.

A: So, the microphone was inside the plane?  Listening through the hull or whatever?

Me: The fuselage, yeah.  They’re ground-penetrating, so they go right through that aluminum…

B: What are you guys talking about?

A: (snickering) Don’t worry about it.

Me: The most interesting part is that the first gyroscopically stabilized, ground-penetrating, laser microphone was actually developed by George Washington Carver.  From a peanut.
