Dumb Social Media

The Beaverton recently published a news satire piece on how Detroit was turning off the sunlight for low-income residents, and many on Facebook actually believed the story. Here's a little excerpt: "In response to non-payment of property taxes, the City of Detroit has undertaken a massive city-wide effort to block sunlight from the homes of its poorest residents.

The Dress

Is this dress white and gold or black and blue? That is the big question the internet has been talking about.

In the example above, someone forgot how to spell "STOP". Continue reading for more.
