Answer Key:

Woody Harrelson's dad actually was a contract killer.

Everything else is a lie. Yeah. That's right. You most likely believed at least two absurd things without any evidence because I lied to you in a clickbait headline. Be honest with yourself. Did you, for even a second, believe that any of those "facts" were real? If you did, you don't need to feel bad. The goal here isn't to make you feel stupid.

But take a moment to reflect. What if one of the "facts" I stated was so incendiary that it would make any rational person angry? What if I believed it was true, too, and instead of stating it as part of a dumb Internet article, I spread it around on social media demanding action. If you believed anything I said was true, then congratulations, you're BS detector is bad enough that you're susceptible to social media mob mentality, quite possibly targeting people who didn't actually do anything wrong.

Your opinion isn't a fact, and facts aren't up for debate. Triple-factcheck everything you read online, and make sure those sources are reliable; that's why reliable articles provide links and give accurate sources. Don't believe random accounts on Twitter or Instagram, don't believe every YouTuber, and don't believe every talking head, either. Stop being a sheep.
