Just in case you didn’t have enough to worry about, the the video below explains that there could literally be a death ray on its way through space right now and we would have no idea until it got here and eradicated the human race. The guy even floats a theory that this may be why we haven’t met any alien life. They’ve all been destroyed at some point by the space death ray!

Space is a wonderful and scary place. Stay thirsty, my friends.

I think this sheds some light on why “wive’s tales” are so prevalent even to this day. A lot of us know they aren’t true but there are many other people out in the world continuing to assert them as truth causing the myths to perpetuate.

I’ve also noticed that during this election cycle, the candidates say a lot of the same things over and over (regardless of truth). I think this sheds some light on why that happens. The idea is that if you hear the same thing enough times, your brain believes it to be true.
