Now for some light-hearted fun. What’s the one “conspiracy theory” that no matter what anyone says you believe is true. Mine is that the moon landing in 1969 was completely faked.
Just nothing about it makes sense. Especially NASA “accidentally erasing” the original footage.

I'm leaning towards this being a cry for attention.  I don't think she actually believes that Apollo was fake.

If "no matter what anyone says you believe [it's] true," well, there's no point in talking to you about it anyway because you're not looking at it from an intelligent perspective.

It was only a matter of time before she started to appeal to that nutty crowd as well. And if she has not done so, I predict she will also claim to belief in Chemtrails, 9/11 truths sooner or later

Who?  Forgive me for not googling, but I wouldn't want to contribute to her "trending".

LOL, good point.

I Wikipediaed her (and if that wasn't a verb before, it is now).

I'd say "Trump-supporting airhead" but that could be anyone, so you'd be none the wiser!
If you're not a scientist but you think you've destroyed the foundation of a vast scientific edifice with 10 minutes of Googling, you might want to consider the possibility that you're wrong.

Is she the same idiot who thinks the US should invade Australia to liberate us from a talban-esque police state?

Well from what I've heard recently, this wouldn't apply to Western Australia, which is more like North Korea.

There are probably more South Africans and New Zealanders in Perth than there are Australians, so yeah Perth = Pyongyang
