12 Tinfoil-Hat Tales (That Actually Happened)

We all know that the conspiracy theories are mostly nonsense, right? A bunch of fringe groups and people who navel gaze a little bit too much found something to latch onto, forming a false conclusion to something that either has been debunked or certified depending on which direction the conspiracies take. There are so many of them out there that have just the most ridiculous theories and claims that even ones that could have a shred of validity to them get buried amongst a sea of tin-foil hats, manifestos, and awkward orgies among believers at the nearby motel after the group meeting/lecture.

I mean, who would believe that the U.S. government unleashed 300,000 mosquitoes onto Georgia? Or that Bayer caused over 100 people to contract HIV? Or that scientologists infiltrated the U.S. government to destroy secret files? You. You should believe all those things. Because they actually happened.
