I just had my first ever conversation with someone who truly believes that the Boston Marathon bombing, Sandy Hook, and now the Santa Barbara shooting were all fake. He is my coworker. He was going on and on about the lack of evidence, doctored photos, people hired as actors in all these situations, etc etc.
I basically just waited until he was done so I could run away to my office and chortle a bit. I mean, I've read all this crap in the various dusty corners of the internet, but I've never met someone who thought this stuff out loud in real life. I feel like I just met a unicorn.
