Reasons to hate social media #8573: The Mars Rat

Posted by rc9530a on June 5, 2013

As I mentioned in a previous blog post, the Internet is a great tool for the planet’s conspiracy theorists to come together and speculate on how the aliens are taking over or how we really are living in the matrix. This week, they found an exciting new topic to discuss and ponder: the Mars rat.

What is the Mars rat? I want to say nothing, move on, but since this is a blog post I’ll explain. This past week, NASA released a panoramic photo taken by the Mars rover. UFO buffs magnified one of the rocks on the planet’s surface, and it just so happens that this rock vaguely resembles the shape of a rodent, thus sparking endless conversations on how we aren’t really on Mars, how the government is lying, how we never went to the Moon, etc.

Social media has the power to create some incredible changes and motivate people to take action to make the world a better place. Other times it’s used to argue with strangers about a rat in outer space.
