July 17, 2014 | 1 comment

Social media is with overrun with people who are passionate about lots of issues, leaving the appropriately apathetic middle without a strong voice online, even though they are often the most sensible.

Just because The Onion is the most famous satirical publication on the planet doesn’t mean that everyone knows they’re joking. In fact, there are thousands out there who see their headlines every day and believe them to be real.

Thanks to the site Literally Unbelievable, we get to check in from time to time and laugh at these people. Here are a few of their most recent…

Some people think that embarrassing stuff about them on the internet can be eradicated, but as it turns out, trying to erase stuff from the internet just draws more attention to it.

The European Union ruled last week that Google and other search engines must remove links to search results if they’re asked to do so, referring to it as “the right to be forgotten.” Of course, there are numerous problems with this, as John Oliver hilariously showed us during his latest episode of Last Week Tonight
