Nitpicky? Hell yes.
I know this is an old ass thread but, it's making me think of me and many others I've known online; we don't trust our senses. Specifically the ones to do with perception, because we have hallucinations. And our mind has fixed beliefs that are entirely insane. For example, I used to believe that people I knew were hypnotizing me through facebook's newsfeed and ads with the goal of giving me unfulfilled erections and making me feel bad.
