Shamelessly plagiarised from Mind Hacks:

A list of delusions taken from the psychiatric literature that don't seem that delusional when you think about them:
  • "The earth is doomed"
    - Patient with Alzheimer's reported by Sultzer et al. (2003)
  • "Bill Gates is destroying my files and spying on me"
    - 32 year old patient reported by Podoll et al. (2000)
  • "A local gang is going to mug me"
    - South London patient reported by Freeman et al. (2001)
  • "I drove two people mad when I was 11 to 14 years old"
    - Patient from a study by Rhodes and Jakes (2000)
  • "My thoughts are being controlled by TV newscasters"
    - Inpatient reported by Noffsinger and Saleh (2000)
To quote Salvador Dalí, "The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad".
