Clickbait Spoilers: Pennies
Clickbait: Maybe you like them, maybe you don’t. Either way, you probably don’t want to watch a 6-minute video just to find out what is the best way to defrost your windshield. I’m here to help. From my own “that one site” page, I am clicking through, just for you.
What Happens When You Mix Coke and Bleach?
What Happens: It turns clear. The Site: Mtv News. Yep, Mtv News. The Story: They tell us it is terrifying. I suppose that a lot of things might have a “terrifying” result when you mix it with bleach. The guy writing the article tells us that the original maker of the video did not warn us early enough not to drink the concoction if you do it yourself. So he warns us, explicitly, with emojis. This is what our world has come to: A music video channel that doesn’t play music videos has a news site that shows popularly viewed videos of a dangerous poison and warns it’s views not to drink it. And I thought Donald Trump leading in the poles was a sign of the end of the world.

What This Man Picks Up Off the Street Holds a Valuable Lesson!
Valuable Lesson: In God We Trust. The Site: The annoyingly reloading Godvine. I hardly click on this site if I hover, because it has a horrible time with crashes. The Story: A woman gets to see her friend’s rich boss on a vacation be excited about picking up a penny. She gets to see how the “other half” lives and is confounded by the rich man’s reaction. She asked him and he says that it was placed there by God as a reminder about how we should remember to trust Him. He sees a penny as that reminder and it brings him joy. Then the lady finds herself doing the same thing later on. Fairly good reminder, probable fake story. How is it that every encouraging Christian story, whether I read about it or hear it on the radio, sounds so fake?
