RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $5800Goal: $6000

This baby clearly sucks.
One born every minute.

Never give a sucker an even break.
—W. C. Fields... He actually said that.

"Sucker" is a term used to refer to lollipops, a sasal shootWikipedia's W.svg in botany, or a part of a cephalopod limbWikipedia's W.svg in anatomy. The term also refers to a gullible person, or a person who can, without batting an eyelash, swallow a load of bullshit whole. Suckers' most significant function in the world is to form a base of support for numerous quacks, cranks, and/or politicians.

Not to be confused with a sucker punch.
