A Year Later:

High altitude propeller planes make "trails" too... just saying!

A lot of these are pretty obvious, but everyone gets "fooled" now and then! That's why such things remain popular: it`s not always easy to "spot the fake" eh?

I really strongly dislike you, Angi, but I fully agree with you on the contrail stuff. It is horribly stupid for people to think chemtrails are a thing... Not only for the reasons you mentioned, but if they were a clever way to drug us all, and it worked, dont you think theyd be smart enough to make it so the trails were, you know, not plastered in the sky and clearly visible to millions of people 24/7?

@Angillion also, the people meant to be perpetuating these chemtrail schemes have access to a clearly much easier way to dose us all with chemicals: they control the drinking water supply. If they wanted to drug us, I reckon that would be the logical place to start

As for contrails, I remember them from when I was a little boy ~40 years ago. There were jets flying back then. I was living in southeast England at the time, so even 40 years ago there were a lot of planes in the area (to and from London's airports).

Maybe you lived in a remote area without planes. Or maybe you`re editing your memories to fit your beliefs.

You can see contrails in photos from at least as far back as WW2. Jets produce tighter, denser contrails but ICEs can also produce them since they still have a hot, damp exhaust (just less so than a jet).

It`s not even complicated. If you chill water vapour, it condenses. Very hot very humid gases thrown out in great quantities at great force into very cold air from a rapidly moving object leave a trail of dense condensation. In low density air with little wind, it dissipates slowly.

Even in my short lifetime I remember when chemtrails didn't exist.

So do I. Last year, yesterday, today and every other day of existence. There`s no such thing as chemtrails unless you count the very temporary low-level trails from crop spraying.

It really is a batpoo crazy conspiracy belief, even by the standards of conspiracy beliefs.

A secret conspiracy involving thousands of people at every major airline in the world using an extremely visible way to give uncontrollable numbers of people uncontrollable doses of supersecret drugs that nobody knows exists, for no apparent purpose. It`s a ludicrous idea - even if they did exist and were doing such a thing "chemtrails" would be a ludicrous way of doing it.

[quote]they don`t dissipate like vapor, they spread like a gas.[/quote]

They behave like water vapour at altitude.

As an aside, do you think that clouds are also drug delivery systems?
