If you live in the US, you might be pleased to know that your tax dollars are hard at work: Someone has been anonymously editing Wikipedia to blame the Cubans and the Russians for... uh... secretly spreading conspiracy theories. And the edits are coming from inside the House!
According to @congressedits, a Twitter account that monitors anonymous Wikipedia edits from inside congress, the Wiki page for "Moon landing conspiracy theories" was just edited by someone inside the US House of Representatives to implicate the Cuban government in spreading the conspiracy myth.Write comment (0 Comments)
Why are U.S. hurricanes given names? Names are actually given to tropical storms but if they reach a sustained wind speed of 74 miles per hour, then they are deemed hurricanes. These types of destructive storms are given monikers because naming them makes it much easier for meteorologists, researchers, emergency response workers, ship captains, and citizens to communicate about specific hurricanes in a clear manner. So after decades of hurricane and storm names, did a Black Congresswoman demand that African-American names be included?Write comment (0 Comments)
