The internet abounds with conspiracy theories, and one of the latest is the so-called “Orange Barrel Conspiracy Theory.” The theory goes that the orange barrels placed on roadsides are actually a secretly sinister plot to control the minds of drivers. The barrels, it is said, emit a frequency that causes drivers to become irritable and aggressive. While there is no scientific evidence to support this claim, some people believe that the government is using barrels to control the population.
