OK, this is my favorite thing SlateStarCodex has ever done: slatestarcodex.com/2019/03/04/

presenting true facts like they're insane conspiracy theories. what if Obama... ISN'T FROM AFRICA AT ALL? what if the GOVERNMENT had a SECRET RESEARCH PROGRAM to reach THE MOON in the 1960s?

The show how 1. any information is more appealing when presented as SECRETS THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW and also 2. a lot of true facts about the world are pretty weird.

The red MSpaint arrows are a nice touch.

I don't know if The Washington Post meant this to be quite so funny, but this quiz they put together has to be the most perfect test of aging white christian rural male privilege ever! In addition to the opening Bible question, it also asks about guns AND about fishing (careful, the fishing one is tricky). Enjoy!
