Bizarre personal theories you have that only you believe

Mine: Trump is a high-functioning Aspie who leans mostly asexual and consciously cultivates the image of a lecherous, chauvinistic poonhound because in his mine that's how "real" men are. He was likely subjected to the most harrowing physical and emotional abuse by his father throughout for not being "normal."

Not that I feel sorry for the fat fuck or anything.

He's not aspie. He has ODD and undiagnosed ADHD which resulted in behavioral problems along with narcissistic personality disorder. His old classmates and teachers, while they were alive, said he was a bully, pathological liar and literally dared people to call him out on his lies, which most did not. That's why it was never corrected. I remember one describing him as lying through his teeth with arms crossed across his chest and defiantly sneering at her. As a result he lies without even realizing it and about things that don't need to be lied about.

I don't want to argue with you but Hitler no doubt loved his dog and thought he was saving it from a horrible existence without him. People do do that. Suiciders often take their animals with them.

I’ve always thought that there is much more to the story about that intruder into the Queen’s bedroom at Buckingham Palace. It happened around 40 years ago and you really don’t hear much from him. Now and then you’ll see an article about him but it’s always treated as an unfortunate time in the man’s life. I would not doubt it at all if security personnel made it clear that they would do some serious harm to him or his family if he ever repeated what really happened.

I admire the Queen greatly and always have. I don’t say this lightly as some sort of a joke — physical or sexual assault is never a topic for lighthearted musings. I don’t even view this as a conspiracy theory. Just a bizarre personal theory.

He's a sociopath which includes excessive narcissism. He's a con artist and a pathological liar which he does with ease. Everything he does is self-serving. Concern for his family is looked at as serving a purpose for him. He has no really true friends, just people who are convenient to use. Cross or defy him, one is seen as an adversary and becomes subject to his vindictive obsession. Only total sycophants and "yes men" types can work for him. He craves praise, recognition, and money by whatever means it can be obtained, legally and illegally. Money is the status measure for him.

My entire life I have been extremely fearful about "Monday the 27th." It's my version of Friday the 13th. I dread every time there's a Monday the 27th. It's not a debilitating fear, just an irrational one, even though some of the worst things that have ever happened to me have occurred on various Monday the 27ths. (My mother died, my car was slammed from behind while I was stopped at a red light, I got my draft notice, I developed a major case of food poisoning, etc., etc., etc.) Monday Sept. 27 is the absolute worst.

As I grew into middle-age, I realized that this phobia was nothing more than coincidental superstition and I'd just ignore it. And ignoring it worked out pretty well. I even started doing things on Monday the 27th that I never would have done in the past, such as deliberately booking a plane flight for that day, or going to the dentist.

THEN—one day I was driving from Santa Barbara to Ventura and listening to some talk show on NPR. The topic was superstitions. And of course, Friday the 13th came up. The person talking said that some university or research organization had conducted an extensive survey and found that there was no evidence that Friday the 13th was any way more dangerous or unlucky than other days. But he then went on to add that there did actually seem to be one day that was indeed more catastrophe-prone than others: [italic]Monday the fucking 27th!![/italic]

Fuck me! I damn near drove off the road into the sea. I was VINDICATED!

So I've now reverted to respecting and fearing the dreaded Monday the 27th. If NPR says it's true, it must be.

It is most likely that we will never be found by an intelligent alien race. The distance from another inhabited planet from ours would require centuries or millennia of travel. The time between our first cities and today is only about 10,000 years. We’ll extinguish ourselves before too long, so there’s a very brief window in time for us to be discovered .

Within our lifetimes, by which I mean under 40 years, I predict that scientists will come to believe that they’ve found life on another planet, based a examination of the atmosphere on these foreign worlds. Most likely, they will be planets with single celled bacteria or fungi, or similar. There might be millions of planets with green slime for every one with land animals, and millions of those for every planet with intelligent life.

There is no reason to think that any beings from another planet would look anything like us. Though, the eye has independently evolved as many as 40 times on Earth, so we can expect aliens to have some kind of vision. They may have sensory perception that we don’t have, such as a sense of magnetism, that birds and sharks are thought to have. But we’ll never know about that. They might have some kind of abcestral memory instinct, the kind of thing that guides migrating animals to Places they’ve never been, but which their parents might have been to. Like the butterflies that might migrate from the northern US to their breeding grounds in Mexico, which travel can take generations to complete.

I believe that there was so much suffering caused by Trump and nothing seemed to defeat him that there had to be divine intervention and hence, a novel virus appeared.

I'm sure many people agree with this, but 80% of gay men (my stats) just want to be the woman in the relationship, at least sexually, because our brains were warped by societies homophobia during our hormonal youth. We liked boys, were shamed for it, and had limited role models to show us what a same sex relationship is like. The closest thing we had were the females that got the got the guys we fantasized about in school. This also explains the dominate culture of cattiness and female colloquialisms (stolen from black women) which is a complete rip off of college age women.

When it comes to men, many of us default to wanted that strong man to hold and protect us. Sadly, other men want the same so it's a mental stage we have to evolve from as adult gay men to find that balance. Some find the perfect match (Dominate types), but most of us have to move past our childhood fantasies.

A girl form Kentucky becoming a household name raking in millions and getting an Academy Award. She doesn't even have to work another day in her life thanks to a few rides on that whale.

Schitt's Creek has a goodbye special on Netflix. They say that they auditioned at least 100 girls to find their Alexa. No casting couch occurred, from what we can tell, but for a non-name show that every thought would fail to get 100 girls you can see that the competition in Hollywood is insane. I don't begrudge actors (hot) or actresses from doing what they have to do to get work. If anything I applaud people for putting in the extra effort.

I believe you’ve confused Donald Trump with Fred Jr, OP.

Donald Trump is evil. He was born evil. He hates animals (And his sons kill animals to please him). He believes females are here to service men & raise their children. He hates dark skinned people. He believes in eugenics & is so proud of his German background he brags that his father was born in Germany (he wasn’t). He used a toddler in a playpen as target practice when he was a teen. If he’d gone to Vietnam he would’ve been killed by his American platoon mates & I believe that’s the main reason why he avoided the draft & cosplayed soldier.

He’s a born liar. He didn’t learn to lie, it’s inborn in him. He can’t stop. He lies the way OCD people repeatedly switch lights on & off.

I’ll bet his family couldn’t figure out his attraction to Ivana. She was never pretty, had a horrific accent & was from, at that time, an iron curtain country. I’m sure though, that Ivana was convinced by her handlers that Trump was a rich American who would give her whatever she wanted, so long as she married him and provided information on him, his family, other real estate developer & other rich New Yorkers.

Aboriginal Australians arrived from South Asia, not Africa. Regarding differences between New Zealand and Australia in terms of Aboriginal treatment Australia just seems like a rougher and crueler country in general. Nowadays there is evidently some controversy over who can " claim" Aboriginal identity in Australia. Some feel that there are too many individuals who have majority European ancestry (and more distant aboriginal ancestry) claiming aboriginal identity. Complicated subject for sure.

The Australian first people arrived about 50,000 years ago, though that date is questioned by many. At that time, we had very low sea levels so they could walk from Africa across Asia to get there.

I’ve heard the Americas were mostly settled about 10,000 years ago, also a debated date. But consider how different American Indians appear from East Asians today. So it makes sense that an isolated population on Australia would look different from the people in Africa today: 50,000 years later.

One thing that bugs me. Historians frequently refer to various low sea level periods to refer to migration to Australia or the Americas or wherever. But didn’t these people also have boats? They were as smart as we are today. Why are boats discounted?

You may be right r134. But I'd venture that there's a "silent movement" or at least, a growing awareness that the status quo is no longer viable. That can mean many things to many people but I think there is sufficient anxiety and concern over where things are headed in general that those old views, may be fading fast. There are always the factions that no wonder if the earth was splitting in half tomorrow, they'd never believe it and/or could care less, and they will never change. But I think ironically, thank you in large part to Trump, he may have accelerated this new wave or trend which is looking for a completely new approach and sensibility. People are also tuned into what is going on overseas more than ever. Sure, they may be voting for Biden out of fear for the alternative, but whatever the motivations, there is a recognition that the status quo as I say is no longer viable.

I thought Australia was settled from people from Africa. I just looked it up, and at least one website says there is a theory that the people came from Africa. But that’s just one theory. If true, they would have migrated across Asia and mixed with those people during their migration. In any event, I won’t contest R132’s assertion any further, that Australian first people’s cane from South Asia.

When Connecticut recognized two local Indian tribes and partnered with them to build casinos, there were very few individuals who lived according to their respective Indian culture. The tribes went searching for Indians who assimilated into western society to goose the number of tribe members. Many of the Indians they discovered were racially mixed and often considered themselves to be Black, not native Americans.

I understand that they mostly got screwed by the casino managers and experts they hired to create and manage their casinos.

My college friend’s father was the Protestant pastor at one of the tribes, before the casinos. I went to his wake on one of the reservations.

So, my theory, per the thread topic, is that most of the Indians in Connecticut were acclimated to modern society and weren’t oppressed, and the casinos aren’t a good thing.

There is a scientific theory that the Black Sea was once a freshwater lake. It had fishing villages on its shores. At some point, the land border between the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea was breached. This resulted in the Black Sea expanding its borders and going from fresh water to sea/salt water. Those waterside villages were submerged by the rising sea. All this happened in prehistory.

My theory is that this is the genesis of the biblical story of Noah’s Arc. The story shared by oral history until it was eventually written down.

I have a copy of a letter from my great great grandfather (1713-1873), where he relates family history to his niece. In that letter, he makes a few mistakes. As an adult, he would have known his grandfather. He writes that his grandfather fought in his town’s militia at Bunker Hill at age 14, and lost a leg in battle. We know his town’s militia did indeed fight at Bunker Hill, so it is possible, but I can’t find documentation to prove it. He did enlist in the Continental army the next week, we can prove.

And in this letter, he confuses the date his grandfather died with the date he started getting his pension. But there is a lot of verifiable truth in the letter, too.

My point being, he was relating family history for only the last 200 years, and got things mixed up. So, the biblical stories that were written far longer after various events, I think, may be based on historical events, but with unintentional incorrect info.

R165 - Beethoven bridged the Classical and Romantic eras in music. But his brand of Romanticism was of the "Heroic" sort, and as such idealised the Heroic Individual Man freed from the shackles of "society". Spengler believed that eventually, the emphasis on individual evolution would lead to the decline of the West. I had this relayed to me by a former Met Opera conductor . . .

It is, of course, a vast oversimplification, and a glance at Wikipedia's entry on Spengler's "Decline of the West" and its divisions of types of civilisations and the "Being" v. "Becoming" modes will probably permanently alter your vision, but if you're that interested . . . we are, I believe, in what Spengler called the "Winter" of our age.

Two years ago I bought a new couch. I was replacing a 7 year old couch whose springs were shot. I met the same sales woman at the same store I bought the old couch at. I went once to shop, and a second time to “close” the deal. As I was closing, she tried to up-sell the fabric protection plan. “It’s $350 and we do everything. We come out and if we can’t get the stain out we replace the couch, etc...”.

I asked, “Just a second, are the springs warranted?’

Saleswomen: “yes, ten years”

Me: “Well, you’ve heard me say at both visits that my old couch was 7 years old and the springs were shot, so let’s open a warrantee claim”.

Saleswomen: ‘I’ve never heard of such a thing in 30 years. Not here, not at (she named all the stores she’s worked at),..”

After that, I worked with the manager. She just disappeared. I was entitled by warrantee to a complete replacement couch at no cost, but I offered to accept a 30% discount on the new couch, since there was 30% of time left of the warrantee (10 year warranty, minus 7 years of use, leaves 30%). I compromised, because I knew I was mostly powerless to enforce the warrantee. I got a pittance back and had to pay for “extras” that are normally free, like arm covers, and I paid for the fabric protection, that I didn’t order or want..

Anyway, merchants use the offer of a warrantee to sell something, and then refuse to honor it. I noticed the store was mostly empty and asked about that. The saleswoman said it was the internet. It is a superstore and there was one other person there, whereas it was built for, maybe, 10-30 consecutive shoppers. I used to love that store, because the furniture was so nice, it was like a museum, but it’s gone downhill.

I know someone who wholeheartedly believes that the Harry Potter books are single handedly responsible for the extreme narcissism and neurosis of the Y and Z (snowflake) generations.

I've only read the first HP book, but one thing that stood out to me is how Harry's life with his adoptive parents is portrayed as some horrid nightmare situation when in fact his life, although not great, is better than most children's (including mine at the time) in the world.

^btw the reason why I only read one HP book is because even as a kid I was turned off by Harry and Hermione's personalities. They were bratty twats as the Brits say

R176 - Clearly Spengler and I are behind the times . . .

I can't agree with your friend re Potter. The Potter books are simply the latest in a long and very fine tradition of English children's literature, ranging from George MacDonald to Rowling with stops at E. Nesbit, Stevenson, Kipling, and Frances Hodgson Burnett, amongst others. Literally all of these follow a similar theme: isolated, exceptional children separated from parental protection and guidance at some point and forced to develop resources to cope, often secretly, with extraordinary circumstances that also present moral dilemmas.

The Potter books in my view follow in this tradition. Ron is the only member of the cast with anything resembling a real family throughout, and, for what it's worth, although ingeniously plotted, Rowling's writing is woefully short of the exceptional writing that characterised those earlier works.

Ron is the only member of the core characters with a real family. You never see any of the others even though you know Hermione has one, and whilst the staff of Hogwarts stands in at times, it is mostly to transmit the magical skills the children need as they are left to navigate their convoluted path on their own.

But, as a bizarre personal theory, I suppose it's no worse than Spengler's - who, by the way, loved Beethoven's music.

Go figure.

^* sorry about the repeat of this phrase, "Ron is the only member of the core characters with a real family." Lost track.

Of course, Malfoy has a protective family, too, but he's the Opposition and his family toss him to the wolves to further their own political ends as they back what they think the Winning Horse will be . . . so Malfoy, also, is lost in a morass of conflicting moral values. I rather liked the way Malfoy, Jr.'s sour unhappiness was portrayed. In a way, he was the most interesting character amongst the younger ones.

Ok. I think we for a little off topic here. But I will Repeat my bizarre theory from the Truman show thread.

I think it is all a show. And not for me personally. From quantum physics to the layout of the universe to dark matter, black holes, the Big Bang, quarks etc... We are given whatever Insights someone else decides are appropriate. I’m not saying it’s Jebus. I just don’t think we are as smart as we think.

When I was little, my older brother told me that people who got into Winnebago's could never come out again. I can't say I've ever seen that disproven.

Remember when the World Health Organization (WHO) was slow to describe the worldwide virus spread as a “pandemic”? I believe that Trump was twisting their arms to keep them from calling it so. This was when Trump was still wishing and hoping that the US would be ok. (Despite absence of an intelligible reason); the US had maybe, 15 cases, and Turnip, was Finally, the WHO made its declaration, and Trump throws them under the bus at every opportunity for being too slow to label the spread as a [italic] pandemic. [/italic]

Every time he calls it the “China. Virus”, makes me want to call it the “Trump Virus”.

I know a Russian woman who is a naturalized U.S, citizen but still clings to Mother Russia.

She said in July 2016 that “Trump, he gonna win.” I did not take her grim prediction seriously as she has absolutely no interest in politics. Indeed, she’s about as smart as a vat of borscht.

Looking back four miserably years later, I wonder if everybody in Russia knew that Putin was interfering in the elections.

That was Chinese pressure on the WHO, not Trump pressure.

R185, we’ll never know. But I do know that Trump was quite desperate to downplay the virus at the time, and threatening to defund the WHO and withdraw the US from it. Maybe both were applying pressure upon the WHO.

I don't know whether the Chinese were deliberately trying to create a virus to destabilise other nations, or were just doing very high risk research into viruses, but the outbreak was covered up by China and the WHO.

I mean China currently have hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs in concentration camps, children are being taken away and adults are being sterilised and China has just been elected to the United Nations Human Rights council. They can pretty much do what they want at this point.

I think you may be right r185. I remember when the virus was raging across China, then hopping to Europe, it was clear as day what was going on yet silence at WHO. It was nowhere near the U.S. at that stage and the world was crying out for WHO to acknowledge the reality of the "pandemic". So yeah, China influence/pressure.

R184, you don't sound too smart yourself. There are other ways to predict that something is likely to happen than some conspiracy theories that everyone "knows" something via magical nationalistic DNA networks.

Trump is a walking, talking DSM-5 entry for narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder. To call him anything less is to imply that he's simply annoying rather than what he truly is: dangerous.

by Anonymousreply 19010/16/2020

Plus oppositional defiance disorder, which prompts him to do the opposite of anything an authority tells him. I had a roommate with that problem. I got tired of him doing the opposite of whatever I said; so, if something was important to me, I’d tell him the opposite, so that he’d do what I actually wanted. I hated being manipulative like that, but it was basically self defense.

One Sunday, he returned from a weekend at his home, and announced that he was staying on campus for the next weekend. I told him he should stick around, it’s homecoming weekend and you enjoy that, etc. I kept encouraging him to stay on campus, and it didn’t take long for him to decide he was going home after all.

The US has sent rovers to Mars that have analyzed the Martian rocks and soil. They compared the Martian results to some meteors that have landed here, and concluded that the similarities mean that these meteors originated on Mars. The think that a large volcanic eruption or large impact on Mars threw Martian rocks into space, only to fall to earth, perhaps millions or billions of years later.

It is possible that life originated on Mars and that some Martian microbes may have landed on earth, and evolved here. Unprovable, I guess. Plus too elaborate.

I've been saying for years the earth was seeded by an alien race who then either died off or just doesn't give a fuck. I think there was a movie made about my scenario. Gary Sinise was in it.
