The other day I was having a conversation with Miss A, aged 10, and she was going on about aliens. She said they must be real, because she saw a couple of videos on YouTube.
Well, that was a conversation that was just not going anywhere, and I let her jabber until she got tired, and then I said "there are no such things as aliens" and she said "Yes, there are Gramma, I saw it on the internet!"
But seriously, this got me thinking about what a lot of people believe, and believe strongly, even adamantly! And where do they get these ideas? Well, it used to be across the back fence, the old Rumor Mill. Then it was email... remember the guy in Nigeria who had a million dollars for you, if you just send him your credit card number?
