Crank Magnetism
https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Crank_magnetism

A list of cranks.  For when you are bored and looking for cheap laughs.  It seems a lot of people who believe conspiracy and woo woo nonsense have a tendency to collect multiple crank ideas.

Notable kooks that somehow seem to find audiences for this kookery.  Have a few laughs.

Haven't read the article but I heartily concur with the conclusion presented. When I was helping Brenda research her paper on UFO fans I cataloged known "alternative viewpoints" held by the people reporting the little green men. Out of two hundred reportees I found ONE that didn't have at least five beliefs that would be considered fringe when I was being most kind.

Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

The guy who delivers the Dallas Morning News to my store tried to start a conversation this morning about his belief that C-19 is a manmade virus. It was difficult being polite as I explained to him that scientists have looked into the idea and found it untenable. "There's a lot of solid information on it out there," I told him, "but you have to want to learn it."

He's a kook about a couple of other things too, and a little creepy to boot.
Freedom isn't free.
