"Investigators refused to comment on a possible motive, following reports that Warner harbored deep paranoia about 5G cell phone technology.

Nashville Mayor John Cooper on Sunday said he suspects that the AT&T transmission center was targeted in the attack, which wreaked havoc on phone systems in multiple Southern states on Christmas Day."

Hmmm.... and where might such a 5G conspiracy theory be found?

"Last year, the New York Times traced the present 5G anxiety to a Florida physicist named Bill Curry, who published incorrect research showing a correlation between rising frequency of radio waves and tissue damage in the brain. Curry failed to account for the fact that human brains are shielded from such radiation by their skin and skulls, but a chart he made about the theory has become canon in the world of cellular technology conspiracy theories.

The Russian television network RT has pointed to such ideas to push theories about the dangers of 5G technology, as has Infowars founder Alex Jones. Infowars even sells a "5G Kills" T-shirt."

Ah so, perhaps another debt we owe Alex Jones.

AU posted this info yesterday, to be fair. Just confirmed today. Unabomber II was one of my first impressions as far as motive went.

If I had a camper van, I would name it Van Morrison.

What's funny is the 5G conspiracy ---- is the same bad info that's been thrown around since cell phones became common, info that hasn't been supported by any rigorous science.

Youtubers Trent and Allie named their van Pamela Vanderson.

Well, f---. With the threads combined, it looks like I ripped-off Darkvader.

Apologies all around. (Yes, my ego is that delicate...)
