PEOPLE ARE AWFUL, PART 349

First up, the cognitive “science” behind why we feel some people are “creepy” is deeply flawed and doesn’t actually protect us from people who might harm us (on the other hand, using the word is a good way of calling out entitled behaviour by males, surely?).

The truly, extraordinarily dumb things people say on Facebook — a short history. Plus, there’s now a conspiracy theory for everything: meet the earthquake conspiracy theorists. (I’m a fully paid-up participant of most prominent conspiracies including the climate warming hoax, the Illuminati, the New World Order, fluoridation, the 9/11 false flag operation and flat earth/fake moon landing one, and I can tell you, I have never seen the earthquake controllers at the meetings.)
