Seriously people, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
Yesterday this popped up on the Internet:
In response to this revelation, the Twittersphere, Facebook, and many other hubs around the Internet blew up with the fact that it was Future Day.
W.T.F. Excuse me while I rant.
Have any of you even watched the Back to the Future movies? Did you pay attention at all? Hold up, do you even use the Internet? Properly? Look at this picture below, which popped up on the web months back, around the turn of 2011 into 2012. Do the math, 2012 + 3 = 2015, not 2012.
Sorry, had to get that out. Anyway, this isn’t the first time this hoax occurred. Two years ago around this time a similar image popped up saying that Future Day was July 5, 2012. This prank was played by Total Film, and it is kind of sad how many people fell for it then, and how many people fell for it again this year.
I saw the top, fake picture pop up on my Facebook newsfeed and all I could think of when staring at it was “This is bullshit. 2015 people. 2015!” I almost unfriended the people who shared that. It’s this kind of irresponsible and uneducated web surfing (do people still call it that) that gets people into trouble. A simple wiki search for Back to the Future Part II would have shown you quick enough that the actual date they went to was October 21, 2015. Research. It’s not that hard people.
Now go back and watch the films and educate yourself.
