An Introduction to RealityChallenged.blog

Frauds, hoaxes, pseudoscience, fake news, scams, certain “trends” or “movements,” conspiracy theories, and any other BS lurking around on the internet will serve as content fodder for this blog.

It’s no secret that there’s a lot of questionable content on the internet.

Some of this content is there to troll the gullible, some of it’s there because desperate people are willing to mislead others to make a living, but the bulk of it is comprised of the unsubstantiated, uneducated opinion of average individuals.

We have all, at some point in our lives, been gullible and in the article, Why Are People So Incredibly Gullible? David Robson says, “It’s not a question of intelligence – even Nobel Prize winners have fallen for some bizarre and baseless theories.”

And that’s all okay, because we learn from our experiences whether they are good or bad. But what’s not okay is loitering in this impressionable state for too long as there are many out there who thrive on taking advantage of the temporary ignorance of others.

That is why I have created this blog: to record, analyze, investigate and report on the ideas, events, and people that would otherwise mislead you, waste your time, and even try to take your money.

Frauds, hoaxes, pseudoscience, fake news, scams, certain “trends” or “movements,” conspiracy theories, and any other BS lurking around on the internet will serve as content fodder for this blog.

In addition to the themes mentioned above, this blog will also be a platform for my own personal musings, photos and story.

Thank you for reading,
