Most Ridiculous Comments This Week
As usual, there are tons of contenders. Here are three to make your head (or fist) shake.
The first one actually took place back on June 5th, but because it has to do with time travel, it is included in this week’s pile. A woman from Exminster in Devon, UK posted an ad on Gumtree seeking a companion for a journey in her time machine. From the ad:
“I have been working on a design for a time machine in my garage. So far I have been able to make mice disappear but I don’t know if they are going back or forward in time?”
Speaking of demons, an article titled What happens when an entire country becomes infested with demons? can’t help but catch the reader’s eye. Some in the catholic church believe exactly that. In fact, the entire country of Mexico was “exorcised” last month. Spanish demonologist and exorcist Father José Antonio Fortea was one of the participants at the event:
“The exorcism performed in San Luís Potosí is the first ever carried out in Mexico in which the exorcists came from different parts of the country and gathered together to exorcise the powers of darkness, not from a person, but from the whole country.”
And speaking of Hitler, he did not commit suicide at the end of the World War II, but instead he fled Germany, according to British historian Gerrard Williams. The official records hold that Hitler shot himself in the head in a bunker in Berlin while his wife took a lethal cyanide pill on April 30, 1945 (corroborated by many independent witnesses.) Alas, they were all deceived, and us as well, because according to Williams:
“I am pretty convinced two people probably did die in the bunker at the end of April 1945 but they weren’t Hitler and Eva Braun. Two doubles replaced them and it was those who were murdered and their bodies disposed of later.”
