I liked reading this chapter because I think that conspiracy theories are interesting. I am not saying that I believe in them but rather I like hearing about them and people's perspectives are on them. It's crazy how people invest so much time in trying to prove that events such as 9/11 never happened and they come up with their evidence. As for chapter 9, I agree with the statement that even though the psycho path test was made for good use, there are people out there who use it for their own gains.

Chapter 8 and 9!!
Chapter 8, The Madness of David Shayler, talked about a person named David who was very muc into conspiracy theories. This chapter talks about a female named Rachel who was a victim of a terrorist attack on 7/7. David and other conspiracy theorists claimed that the event never happened and that Rachel was actually a group of men who took up a persona of a female and spread stories to make it seem real. David took his madness even further by claiming that the planes involved in 9/11 were actually missiles and not real plans. He then took it even further by claiming he was the Messiah. At this point he lost reputation faded out of the media spotlight.
