Well,this is where the advantage of getting the first wisecrack in comes into play. You can judge their reaction,what do they say next,do they jokingly agree,or do they scoff. If they jokingly agreee,then they may well be an "alternative thinker" as I like to refer to "us" as. Poke them a little more. I ended up talking about my mates ufo sighting that he'd never told anyone in 20 years,cos he had no-one to tell. Another mate of mine I found out is a 9/11er and a moonlanding conspiracy fan. They keep it all in. Coerce it out of them in the comfortable guise of humour.

Lol, that's a good one. How do they react to this one? Also, in the end do they engage in discussion with you.
