Post "Fake" Snow
This one is good indicator of the lack of critical thinking in the public. Here is a conspiracy theory "going viral" (1 2 3), and everyone is jumping on the bandwagon. It's not that the snow is fake or changed by chemtrails. It's that people don't understand what happens when you put a butane flame next to a snowball. Who does that, anyway? Pretty much no one, which is why people are so surprised by the result. It's a different result from a snowball melting while sitting out in the hot sun, which is what we are used to seeing.

My son grabbed some snow in northern Wyoming and did the same experiment, and he got the same result as in all the videos. That's what you call a "control" in science experiments. If all other experiments match the control, you are not seeing anything unusual. If your expectations anticipate some other result than what the control produces, then perhaps there is something wrong with your expectations. I think that's what is happening with the "fake snow" conspiracy.

Hey, at least it shows that conspiracies are becoming more widely accepted! :lol:
