We're in agreement.
I often wonder how these stories ever gain traction and belief. Are so many so gullible as to so readily accept these and other stories just
I suspect this emotional and intellectual investment in fantasy often stems from boredom, where reality for adherents to such is just not exciting
enough. This is probably why we don't often have tall tales like these originating in places where people actually have real problems, real fear,
real life and death struggles.
It's like a societal Hypochondriasis
where certain elements are constantly picking away with
worry and concern that Reptilians are among us, Flouride in the water is meant to control people, we're being sprayed, false flag this, and false flag
that, Aliens, time travelers, and of course the ever present and up to shenanigans 'THEY'.
The fun thing about Hypochondria is that often, the only cure for it, is for the Hypochondriac to actually develop a life threatening real illness.
Sure, it'd be nice if zombies, or something else equally fantastic happened such that all this other fantasy evaporates like morning fog from the heat
Doubtfully, we'll see anything such, and a bored society will continue to spin its tall tales.
