Internet BS

Remember way back when I was concerned about the 4 legged chickens?

Luckily those sad animals seem to have been rescued. Or eaten. I'm not sure since the Internet seems to have lost interest in them.

Don't worry too much about it though because the Internet has something else you should feel bad about.

Danish people are awesome and show serious respect to their elders. 

Not us though. We are horrible and should take a long hard look in the mirror. Or some other soul searching activity. Staring out a window on a rainy day perhaps? Maybe sitting quietly at a coffee shop while you drink you bitter mochachino?

This is the picture that has been popping up all over social media again.

Notice anything amiss? Out of place?

Remember the part where they said this was in Holland? You know. That country that speaks DUTCH!!

Yeah I don't speak any Dutch either but I know they don't call a post office a POST OFFICE!

So of course being the eternally cynical person I am when it comes to the Internet I questioned the validity of this picture.

So off I went to search the World Wide Web hoping that Snopes would have something.

Imagine my surprise when I found this:

'Dementia village' inspires new care

It's real!! Seriously. This is the news story from 2013 on CNN! CNN people. No one is infallible but CNN is at least slightly more reliable than most other Internet news sights. Plus since the story is 2 years old it's not like people haven't had time to dispute it.

Crazy right?

I'll just be sitting in the corner sipping my tea while I rethink my world view.
