My dad and my brother. More my brother, but he gets his toxic traits FROM my Dad.
They're both hair-trigger tempers who hate being talked down to, and snap back when they get talked down to, respond to anger with heightened anger, and...oh yeah, they talk down to each other.
So it's basically a coin-flip if their conversation is going to result in a shouting match.
My Dad was born in 1940.
My brother, 1982.
Brother is a conspiracy theorist who believes 9/11 was an inside job, the Illuminati, chemtrails, GMOs are poison, fluoridated water is poisoning us into docility and stupidity, mind control imagery in mass media, magic hand symbols routed in demonology, Alex Jones is a plant from the CIA to discredit conspiracy theorists and sway the public mind to dismissing dissenters as crazy, wi-fi and cellphone waves are harmful and killing us, Fukushima radiation is a global threat that can be quelled by duct taping the door frame in our home in North Texas, among other things like the Georgia Guidestones, Comet Ison was gonna kill us, and Obama is going to take all of our guns and send us to FEMA concentration death camps.
My Dad watches Fox News all day.
They argue constantly.
