Conspiracy theory checklist

Found this on Slashdot and seems like it would be useful in responding to some people on my friends list at times...

Your post advocates a conspiracy theory which is

( ) paranoid
( ) delusional
( ) impossible to confirm
( ) impossible to refute

Specifically, your theory fails to account for

( ) Stupidity of the general population
( ) Stupidity of the politicians
( ) Lack of supporting evidence
( ) Plenty of contradictory evidence
( ) Lack of a centrally controlling authority for conspiracies
( ) The facts can be explained without need for real conspiracy
( ) Scientists generally don't participate in conspiracies
( ) Failure to mention the Illuminati

and the following philosophical objections may also apply:

( ) Ideas similar to yours are easy to come up with, yet none have ever been proven
( ) That's what they WANT us to think

Furthermore, this is what I think about you:

( ) Sorry dude, you're batshit crazy
( ) This is a stupid idea, and you're a stupid person for suggesting it.
( ) Nice try, assh0le! I'm going to find out where you live and burn your house down!
