The year is 2015. Society as we know it has progressed to the point of near technological utopia, with everyone from toddlers to senior citizens armed with iPhones and limitless information. Autonomous cars are realistically being discussed. Star Wars is

Embarrassingly fake, right? Sadly, you probably have someone in your immediate fam who has shared or even participated in this blatant tomfoolery.

The hoax, however, somehow persisted over the holidays alongside some equally bullshit-esque cosigns from ABC News.
In summary, please stop. Please. The utopia that awaits us all begs you to please stop.
