Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know: Conspiracy Theories That Won’t Go Away by David Southwell and Graeme Donald (book review).

These might be a brief idea or several paragraphs, left to percolate for a time for when it might be suitable to be used. Age can put an often different perspective on things.
