TVAH: Real van on a sidewalk

like this

This one looks real, but #NDNGH and there wasn’t a media story that was promoted.

The Toronto Van Attack hoax was fake – and impossible to believe that the thousands that could have video recorded it with their studio quality smartphones didn’t.

Do we believe Chicagoland stats?

These stats don’t tend to rise to the top of the news cycle. Does that make them real?

I’m not sure, but for some reason, I tend to believe stories that aren’t promoted to the top.

Sprocket lives another day!

I think this is real.

Got me thinking that in our relatively peaceful life in the Western world, we’d have very little “news” to spread other than the odd birth, death, and weather report if not for the manufactured fear porn story.

Glad Sprocket survived.

The video shows a dog ambling around a snowy backyard. She suddenly bolts as heavy branches crash to the ground where she was standing just seconds before, a result of the ice storm and heavy winds that punished Toronto on Sunday.

Real story alert

I had to dig to find this story – upon being notified that a former co-worker was killed in a crash last night. Those that reported the crash to me couldn’t find any media on the story.

My information differs from this report, saying he crashed into another car and then was hit by a big truck and sandwiched to death.

I’ve noted this story because it shows how real stories are reported with little or no detail, if at all. I’d be surprised if there was any follow up to the story.

If I had to guess what happened, I’d say there was a flash freeze in the area that turned the road into a skating rink. Knowing what I know about our area’s drivers, most don’t bother to lower their speed.

Provincial police are investigating after a man died following a single-vehicle crash on the Burlington Skyway. The incident took place on Jan. 23 at 10:13 p.m. The man, 43, was found dead at the bottom of the Skyway, said OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. Foul play isn’t suspected.

Larvicide for $200

The law of averages states that there must be a few real stories in the news. I choose this one over the “virus” stories.

A report from the Argentine doctors’ organisation, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns.

The Physicians commented: “Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added Pyriproxyfen to drinking water are not a coincidence, even though the Ministry of Health places a direct blame on the Zika virus for this damage.”

Surreal, unbelievable – real?

Be the 1st to vote.

Refreshing in 2016 to see some surveillance footage that is of a believable quality – and actually looks real.

No numerology, no deaths – just plastic cars and trucks flying all over the place.

I post this in contrast to other material here – as I suspect this is real footage. Feel free to disagree, however, without feeling bad.

I will categorize this as a “real event” for now (I had to make a new category for it).
