Okay, seriously, dude, I would appreciate it if you would stop trying to convince me that aliens exist and they have come to earth and the government is hiding things. I know you're lonely, but really, seriously, that does not mean that *I* want to talk to you, especially about something I find rather stupid.

Okay, I mean, I'm not arguing that the government is hiding stuff. We have the Snowden case as a prime example. However, I have absolutely no evidence that the government is hiding anything that is in any way supernatural, and I flat out refuse to believe that they are until I have actual proof, thanks.

In other news, my missing DVD eventually did show up. I have no idea where the hell it was, but I did manage to get it. Yay!

Re: Your user want to be a manager? =D

(Apologies to the many hardworking, effective managers out there, I do know you exist.)

:P Totally.

I assumed she wanted to work for Wall Street. :)

This would be kinda mean (and not exactly patron-friendly) but you could always point out to him that the library(assuming you're at a public library) is paid for by the very government he's accusing of hiding things. And then maybe whisper something about he shouldn't be talking about these things out loud where they can be heard.

Yeah, public library. And I don't really want to deal with THAT either - we already have one patron who is convinced we're all spying on her, we don't need more of those.

Conspiracy theorists are the hardest to do reference for - what they want often just fails to exist.

Luckily, he wasn't asking questions, but I didn't particularly want to hear him go on about what some other conspiracy theorist said either.

This thought just occurred to me, why not start talking to him about the endless joys of something you know (or can fake) that is completely innocuous and would probably bore him silly? For example: crocheting, knitting, tatting, quilting, painting, pottery, gardening, stamp-, rock- or coin-collecting, four-leaf clover hunting, etc. I recommend gushing enthusiastically about such topics as a response to each and every statement he makes. Paint or fabric swatches! Talk about trying to match them and how many places you had to go to find them and do comparisons and how the beige just wasn't quite the right shade, and...

You catch my drift.

Luckily, he hasn't done this often, but it's something to keep in mind!

Unless, of course, you accidentally hit upon one of his other passions as well - then he's got TWO topics to attack with. :)
