She’s in great shape for 96, and she produced several moments of genuine comedy, but she also had a little trouble delivering her speech.  It may finally be time to accept the fact that the years are catching up to her.

But not long after that, the show was completely stolen by a guy you’ve never even [More]

America might not be able to agree which news outlets are credible.  But one thing we should all agree on is you can’t blindly trust the info you see in Facebook MEMES.

Any time you see a meme, you have to google it to see if it’s really true.  A lot of the information in memes is flawed, or totally made up.  And especially the ones about politics.

So if this helps with all the bad information floating around, it would definitely be good.

Facebook announced yesterday that independent researchers are going to start FACT-CHECKING memes, including photos and videos people post.
