I accidentally found the best/worst conspiracy theory ever. Our music system is based on the tuning of one note (the middle A) to 440 Hz. This was arbitrarily defined at a conference in 1939 so that all tunings around the world would sound the same. Apparently we've all been duped, and 432 Hz is actually the true spiritual tuning of middle A, which has connections to the cosmic vibration of the universe, backed up by the Egyptians, Indians and Pythagoras. Never mind that none of them would have even understood the concept of frequency.
That is the most preposterous thing I've ever heard, what makes a certain frequency 'spiritual'? Is 433 spiritually tuned? Or 431? I don't get it.
Imagination is the essence of Scientific Discovery!

But I got something good for you guys. Propably the most retarded fearmongering campaign in the history of conspiracy theories.
I'm talking about morgellons. And the amount of detailed information about it is just great.
In short: Morgellons is a (fake) disease only found in the USA that causes sores to develop on the victims skin. But wait! People with "Morgellons disease" claim strange coloured fibers grow from these wounds! What could these fibers be? Some debris and dust gathering up in the wounds that you are constantly scratching? No. Never! It's the government! And they are spraying chemtrails containing nanobots that enter your body, assemble in fibers and other structures and then hurt you.
Of course doctors always quickly figure out the "fibers" are just cotton or from a petrochemical origin, like nylon. They end up in the little wounds on the skin of people with "Morgellons" because they have no chance to heal, thus giving the impression that the fibers cause the wounds. Some doctors have even found nerve endings in the "Morgellons samples". Suggesting that these people have been digging almost centimeters into their skin thinking they are finding the "roots" of the fibers.
And the wounds are most commonly found on the arms and legs, the only places where people can continuously scratch themselves.
TL:DR These people are delusional and actually suffering pain because of it.
Morgellons sufferers often have real undiagnosed skin conditions that doctors ignore if they can't find an external cause. If you were itching constantly for no apparent reason, you might also draw a line between that and any unexplained phenomenon in your skin. That's not mental illness any more than pareidolia is.

TheGraveKnight: Actually the Legendary Dragons from Skyrim have compound eyes and it looked really weird (then again you only get to see it for about 5 seconds before the skin starts to melt). Then again Skyrim doesn't really use true dragons so maybe wyverns can have-

phantomhunter01: Now I want to make a description of that creature as a DF forgotten beast.

phantomhunter01: "The forgotten beast Asmel Arzesmondûl has come! A great winged monitor lizard. It has black compound eyes, and its dull blue scales are overlapping. Beware its poisonous spittle!"

phantomhunter01: (also the name "Arzesmondûl" is a combination of the dwarven word for knight, "Arzes," and the dwarven word for grave, "mondûl." Dwarf Fortress is maybe a little too thorough in its simulations)

phantomhunter01: If you can't tell, I like dwarf fortress.
