This story of outrage only makes sense when one is a fakeologist.
Footage created in Hollywood for a #hrdpar being reused for an acknowledged work of (bad) fiction.
Too drole for words.
A day after learning that a science-fiction show on Netflix used footage of the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster, the mayor of the Quebec town said she believes images of the tragedy were used in a second Netflix production, Bird Box.
Another completely over the top work of fiction, chock a block with depression, heroism, inspiration, and oddly, Newfies and snowmobiles.
Only thing missing is a lucky hockey stick.
Last year was busy for Canadian and Toronto hoaxes. Wonder what 2019 will bring (besides what appears to be more fake murders in Toronto).
But Kane is actually plenty tough, as her boyfriend of two years and many others have seen first-hand over the past few months. The ability to travel for a Christmas vacation in rural Newfoundland is one sign — of many — of how much the Toronto woman has recovered since she was injured in the July 22 shooting in the city’s Danforth neighbourhood.
If you’re going to screw the population with a new tax (not sure if Macron withdrew it yet), then a simterror event shortly thereafter helps scatter the yellow jackets and help everyone forget (or swallow) the bitter pill.
A shooting in the French city of Strasbourg killed four people and wounded 11 others near a world-famous Christmas market Tuesday, sparking a broad lockdown and a search for the suspected gunman, who remained at large.
This is amusing, if not likely fake. If true, then the real fraudsters apparently don’t tolerate competition. If false, then this story is again used to google search block anyone wondering if the Humboldt Hockey Hoax GoFu**Me constitutes fraud.
I sincerely doubt there is any regulator body anywhere, if not the police, trying to figure out which GoFu**Me campaigns are legit. When you donate your money to any cause, there are no warranties or refunds. When you give to the beggar at the end of the hiway off ramp, is anyone checking that he doesn’t get into his Mercedes at the end of the day?
RCMP in Saskatchewan say a man has been charged after two fake fundraising efforts for the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team were discovered. Police say a joint investigation last month with the province’s Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority uncovered an alleged investor fraud running under the name Aero Capital Inc.
If all major school shootings are faked, then this statistic is probably much closer to the truth.
We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports.
In 161 cases, schools or districts attested that no incident took place or couldn’t confirm one. In at least four cases, we found, something did happen, but it didn’t meet the government’s parameters for a shooting. About a quarter of schools didn’t respond to our inquiries.
Gaia has an interesting thread over at POM. #HRDPAR have been occurring for a long time. Before planes, they used ships – the main transportation mode of the rich and famous, who are used to garner attention.
As promised and mentioned in my introduction, I would like to treat 3 stories, narratives, -or rather plots- that caught my attention in recent months. The 3 peculiar plots, as I think is an appropriate title for the series, are related in a way, have similar features and were all happening in the same time frame; the early 20th century; pre-WWII. Part 1 in this series is about the first plot, a strange story indeed, and though not as well known with the general public (especially outside of the US) as s
