One of the dumbest 5G conspiracy theories involves a guitar pedal

Tinfoil hat types insist that 5G is dangerous. To hear these conspiracy weirdos talk, 5G will cause radiation poisoning, spreads COVID-19, and is a tool for the Illuminati to usher in their New World Order, among other things.

The latest comes from Italy where a schematic diagram is being spread online. Proponents say they’ve found the plans for the 5G chip that will do some or all of the above. Specifically, the diagram shows how the chip is included in the COVID-19 vaccine?

Uh, no. It’s a schematic of a guitar pedal. The Boss MT-2 Metal Zone, to be exact.

There were some good replies to the tweet, too.
