8 Totally Batsh*t Things People Actually Believe

Tinfoil hats at the ready, chaps.

We live in a great age of enquiry and freedom of thought, allowing us to think and believe whatever we want. This is something that some people appear to have taken rather to heart, choosing to do away with those oppressive concepts of "logic" and "reason" and letting their minds wander, like, free man.

It's even better when celebrities get in on the act, such as in the recent case of B.o.B and the whole "Flat Earth" thing. Sometimes there's just nothing better than sitting back with some popcorn and watch the crazy unfold over Twitter, but it's sometimes pretty easy to think that we live in an age of reason. We've managed to put people into space, grow organs in labs and unravel some of the deepest mysteries of the universe with nothing more than a bit of maths and a long, hard think.

It's easy to forget that there are people out there who genuinely believe that the new world order are putting fluoride in our water to distract us from the fact that the Earth is flat, the moon is a hologram and god knows what else.

Oh, and you're going to need your tinfoil hat.
