Every part of that post was incredibly cool.
I couldn’t read that whole first section without feeling like the whole discussion just boils down to, “Magnets! How the fuck to they work?!?”
I really think at some point (probably Bill Clinton’s presidency), conspiracies went from “how can I make this crazy idea sound faintly plausible” to “how can I say something bad about libtards.” So many things that make no sense whatsoever to normal, decent people — the birther thing, Pizzagate, BUT HER EMAILS, paid…
