Put some plastic wrap on it and stick it in the fridge. It will be fine the next day or the next couple of days.

Yes.  Duh?  I'm not arguing that the image was correct, just that it's not an extraordinary case of wrongness.

In the restaurant where I work, we slice up a bunch of onions every 2 to 3 days, and keep them in a bucket in the walk-in cooler.  They are just fine after 2 to 3 days.  They are not treated in any way, other than the "throw them in the bucket" treatment.

As a socially awkward kid/teen it took me years to figure out that some people make conversation for no other reason than to fill a void.  They don't care about content or being right, they just "shoot the shiat".  Some people will talk about complete and utter bullshiat just to avoid the horror of silence.  I still don't quite get it.  These days that sort of crap is spilling over to social media as people struggle for something, anything to post on Facebook, tweet and what have you.

It's just gotten to the point that being right, or even reasonable, is no longer of short-term benefit.

No short-term benefit (or short-term penalty for being wrong)?  No corrective action, and no change.

In short, knowledge is less of a positive, and ignorance is no longer as painful.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight, because top neurological researchers are just barely beginning to develop a proper model of the mind, but the government somehow exceeded their collective understanding with a few chemicals that can be dispersed by plane with easily predicted main effects and no major side effects, and wouldn't be discovered by routine medical examination ever.

I'll believe in mind control when schizophrenics or sociopaths are treatable.

There's apparently a whole documentary on Netflix about Chemtrails. I think it's called "Why are they spraying?" or something like that. I haven't had the gumption to sit through anything so ridiculously stupid, so I can't say how good it is, but I find it amazing how adamant the chemtrail believers are, and how quick they are to insult people who try to correct their wonky science.

Again, I would wager that while these things did happen, the general "all the contrails are poisoning us with government experiments" paranoia of the average chemtrail believer is 100% bullshiat, and you should seek help if you believe every plane is spraying some sort of clandestine chemical agent (jet fuel exhaust being a known result of burning jet fuel in a jet engine).   And I know I won't convince any chemtrail believers because they know the "truth" and they won't be convinced by any evidence.

I'd be more worried about drift from a farmer spraying his fields with RoundUp or some other herbicide in a 20-30mph wind than from something 20,000-30,000 ft in the air.

Mostly because such a farmer took out a good portion of my father's garlic crop one year, and it still only affected things about 1/4 mile downwind.

Intentional misdirection and alluding to completely unrelated events does not an argument dispelling the utter woo and complete idiocy behind "chemtrails" make.

Also, none of those operations violated the laws of physics, which is what the proponents of chemtrails want you to believe is happening (otherwise their inane explanations for what's going on fails).

Time to trade in that trillby you keep calling a fedora, kid. Maybe get an actual fedora, like someone who is respectably oldschool instead of yet another boring online schlub who considers any government actor the boogeyman.
