This is not about RubeMom(tm). This is about a much younger person in her 40's.
This person keeps inventing fantasy stories all the time. Some of those are purely fictional and some are real stories with some fantasies added to it. But she tells you it is all REAL. Here's an example:
"I have a friend who has a security system in his home, with satellite cameras. He showed me on the computer and you could see the home from above, the whole neighborhood, and you could see my kids who were playing outside with his. You could see the cars driving up and down the street and all that".
You can probably see satellite images from the whole neighborhood. But it's STILL IMAGES... *not* video and *not* real time. There might be a friend that has some cameras looking outside, and possibly hooked up to a PC to use the machine as a DVR. That kind of service simply doesn't exist. And if it does, it would be something so expensive that I assure you, whoever has it, it's not going to live in a neighborhood where the most expensive house runs for about 70k. I mean, we are talking about a satellite, in stationary orbit, with a camera permanently zoomed at your neighborhood/home. You would have to pretty much own the satellite to do that. But still, she swears it exists and she saw it.
I don't think she believes the stories. Is more like a compulsory obsession to tell this BS stories all the time.
Is there a name for this? Medically speaking?
