I'm not sure what you're selling, but I'm sold! Do I have to buy the tin foil hat from a licensed vendor or can I DIY?

You have to DIY from the foil wrapper of Toblerones. It's the only foil you can get pre charged with triangular energy.

Also what loving kind of spectrum goes "currency focused, justice, friendship, freedom, investment, property focused"

Like show me the loving line that goes between those things.

I'm pretty confident that "currency focus" is a smartypants libertarian good boy way of saying "redistributive focus" because currency is the tool of redistribution (by government fiat!), hence also the polar opposite of focusing on property rights

Selling purestrain gold, friend. The purest.

I think it was supposed to be like, left over from the Big Bang rather than less pure gold? I don't even remember. TobleroneTriangular was a genius.

I'd say it looks pretty typical for a person with an ongoing psychosis problem, or bipolar and having a manic episode.

One wonder of the Internet was that suddenly mentally ill people were able to communicate with the outside world. The wonder of social media is that they can now go viral and reach 10 000 readers in minutes.

Don't forget that people with similar psychoses can find each other and tell each other that their delusions are real.

I find it fascinating that the graphs or signs psychotic make are always crammed with “information”. You rarely see something simple like a map of UFO incidents versus 5g towers or whatever. It’s always got lines from one concept to another, geometric shapes, and way too many words. It’s never just the Illuminati are controlling the world, but that the Illuminati are working with the lizard people to create ghosts to try and scare Jews who want to kill the FBI because in 1950 the Russians secretly developed psi powers and being telekinetic means you can’t move through time.

I mean ... depending on what you're charting, inverting the Y-axis isn't totally nuts. Like, when 0 = good, and higher numbers = bad, or you're charting some kind of % loss or whatever, inverting it can make an intuitive sense to your audience.

Usually not best practice, and it's easier to lie this way if that's your intention, but when you're a doofus in a conference room with other doofuses and scratching something out on a flipboard, whatever.
