Bless my sweet husband’s heart! He is the sweetest and most gullible person I’ve ever met. It’s so funny and sweet how excited he gets about silly things like this (he is currently stomping around upset that something this cool isn’t true).
I hate to burst his bubble, but its just so funny! Whenever I read farfetched things on the internet, I immediately search the website and trust Google for the source. Let’s not even talk about how often I burn people with snopes. Let me give you three quick examples, that I’ve experienced and laughed at over the last few weeks:
I currently work at a place of education that teaches science and have quite a few problems with this. During the height of the Dallas ebola scare 2014, this article was mentioned in passing. Of course, my phone quickly went to find the source of this hoax (snopes.com is amazing). When I finally got back to the original source of that National Report, I cannot put into words how surprised and flabbergasted I was that someone would believe any website with Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin surrounding the title. So yeah, that happened.
#6daysofdarknessblogathon – now you see where the title and the following Facebook post comes from! David casually showed me this on his phone and being on my computer I did two things. The first was open this blog posting to start this and the second was to make sure I went to see what website this information was found on. This has circulated the internet and I am pretty sure quite a few people are still out there believing this will actually happen (along with Y2K). Don’t worry, David is not one of those people.
This was shared last night on my Facebook by a man. That last part is very important, because once you read the story you’ll understand why a man would be gullible enough to believe that this story was true. Trust me on this, I can’t explain it on the blog.
So who’s in for #6daysofdarknessblogathon?!?
