Don’t worry about the explanations, I guess it is pure selection bias. That there *are* people so confused (i.e. not understanding the concept of explanation — not understanding that “a trick” is a better explanation than “changing the events in the past by a trick” or “monitoring the eye movements by a trick”) is not news to me.
I guess what you mean by frightening is stuff like this among the explanations:
…we have decided you must have great mental ESP powers. We have even started a small club/cult to worship and study you and your page. We have even created a shrine from pieces of Stonehenge which we bought over the internet at a great deal. …we have found a large energy field surrounds you as well as a strong psychic power in your mother’s family. We hope to find out more of where this ESP comes from in the future and will let you know.
