Oh boy. Where to begin? Oh, I know: "the space agencies of the world are involved in a conspiracy faking space travel and exploration...most likely motivated by greed rather than political gains, and using only some of their funding to continue to fake space travel saves a lot of money to embezzle for themselves."
I was pleased to stumble upon this random person's university webpage. It describes (with examples) common logical fallacies that people use to win arguments. I think the Flat Earth Society may want to do some reading.
I love how Googling takes me to random places on the Internet. But here's another link to the Wikipedia entry that reinforces what this random guy is sharing.
And don't miss this fun little PDF, too. It's from the random university guy's page.
On the surface, maybe this is a story of redemption and self-determination. But perhaps, it's just an indicator that being crazy doesn't necessarily stop you from being successful.

This is a great question, posed in this article: "How do we trust people enough to get in a car with a total stranger and yet we don't trust a banking executive?"
I'm not usually the type of person to share futurist postulations, but this podcast interview is incredibly interesting. The basic idea here is that a purpose organically emerges from a combination of elements, even in an iPhone. When that happens, the technology seemingly demands what it lacks, or wants.
I want to add a quick vocabulary lesson here to help you understand this better: "To want" means "to lack," as much as it means "to desire."
