Election day in Georgia. I’m not getting my hopes up. I think the chances of both Dems winning are nil, and even one winning is a bit of a stretch, but I’d like to think the antics of the GOP supporting a proud lunatic of a president and killing the $2,000 stimulus checks would be enough to push some moderates over to vote blue. But, it never seems to happen that way does it? Maybe I should give up the thought that there are moderates left in the GOP. Meanwhile:

Conspiracy theorists share a schematic they claim to be a “5G chip” that is in the covid vaccines. Turns out the schematic is actually a guitar distortion pedal.
The conspiracy theorists shared the schematic online, claiming it depicted the diagram for the supposed 5G chip. It features a section labelled “5G frequency” – clearly the source of many a theorist’s eureka moment – as well as terms guitarists will find familiar: “MT-2 Gain”, “Footswitch” among the most recognizable.
Mario Fusco, a senior software engineer at Redhat, spotted the misinformation and took to Twitter to flag it.
Sometimes, once in a blue moon, people can be amazing:
