Yeah there is some shocking stuff here in the states.

This probably isnt that great of an example but it still blew my mind.

Do you remember that movie that was made 3-4 years ago about the serial murderer that carried a camera with him everywhere he went??? And taped all his murders? Well i was in cooking class and was seated with mostly girls. One of the girls i even had a crush on. Well these ******* people thought that MOVIE thats in the MOVIE THEATERS was real life footage of a murder committing all these murders. Now im sitting there getting extremely annoyed because i just cannot believe that there is people who thought that was real. It got to the point where i ended up calling the girl i liked an idiot and just walking away.

So i guess what im trying to say... anything is possible. Even people not knowing that Soccer is the worlds biggest sport.

The movies name was something like

The Poughkeepsy Tape

I think... its been a while.

I understand that people thought the whole Blair With thing was real (Even though thats pretty shocking too). Since the internet wasnt quiet as "Massive" as it is today. And i read somewhere that at the time the movie paid IMDB to write "Deceased" next to the actors names.

But cmon... in this day of age to believe something like that. Its funny to me. And the worst part is you cannot convince the people who believe its real that it is not. They are more likely to get mad at you and say drop it then they are to admit maybe its fake.

For instance i know several people who still think the footage at the end of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre' is real.



"Edit"

Yeah just wanted to change the subject up a bit. But still keep the whole "People can be stupid" theme.

CB, thankyou for posting that vid and Sideways thanks for quoting it. That really took me back. If you want to watch more of those guys they changed the name of their show from CNNNN to the Chaser's War on Everything, they are excellent.

Here's the full video



all of this stuff is completely bewildering to me.

They even get fooled that Australia on a map is France, North Korea, Iran etc.

Well even though "Reincarnated" is the strangest word iv seen used in place of "staged or filmed".

There are people who believe Hollywood shot the footage in Arizona.

I dont know what's more stupid, the reincarnation or the belief that it was staged.
