As a result of my living arrangements (I live out in the boonies and gas is expensive), I have to take the bus into town whenever I want to actually do anything. As a result of this, I often have to put up with actual insane people who ride the bus. I've done this for the past three years, so not much surprises me these days.
Anyways, that was enough explaining myself. On with the story.
There is a guy who on occasion rides the bus who wears duct tape over one eye. The 'reason' for this is that he believes that the FBI has shot a gallium arsenide computer chip into his eye that sends a signal to them that consists of everything he sees. He also believes that he can see gamma rays because of this chip.
"Yeah, I can see gamma rays. They're green. See, it's gamma, G, for green. They're green."
"It's made of gallium arsenide."
"The FBI shot a gallium arsenide computer chip into my eye from a black helicopter and now they can see everythig that I see."
What's interesting about this guy, besides the obvious, is that when I try to explain things to him logically, he says things like, "Did you know that they used to drop strips of metal from planes to confuse radar during WWII?" I then say yes, and elaborate on what he says, trying to give him factual information to possibly think about.
He shows things like evading facts and obvious logic when faced with someone who doesn't believe what he has to say and actually knows more than he does about what he was talking about. It's very interesting to communicate with somebody who is just like Nancy in those ways, and it provides great insight about why she thinks these things. In my opinion, this guy did a little too much LSD, coke, and other various illegal substances not worth mentioning. So did Nancy, I suppose.
