Most controversial opinion: “I have a couple. Mermaids are real. The reason why we aren’t allowed to do drugs is because it shows the real world, and the government wants to control us from seeing the real thing. Time travel, aliens and stuff, all of that is to the bone and really, really true.

"I do not trust the government at all. I think the government hides us from so much. I’m a strong believer in Atlantis. Atlantis is real. The Bermuda Triangle, I think that’s a location where aliens are. That’s where they take people.
