I always thought it would be funny to make up funny stories about our Founding Fathers, but this is pretty good, too. How I Spread A Lie About Ghostface Killah, or Why You Should Not Trust Goddamn Wikipedia:

To me, at least, it seems like skepticism is at its lowest point ever since the goddamn Apple Pie, Post-WWII era when everyone believed everything. And considering that every man, woman and baby has access to basically all information everywhere forever these days, skepticism is incalculably valuable. As David Byrne once croaked, “It takes a lot of time to push away the nonsense,” but if you don’t bother pushing it away, one day you’ll end up lookin’ like a fool.

But if it’s on the internet it has to be true, right? Right? No? Oh.

This yearly congregation of college radio nerds, fashion victims, art students, burnouts, baristas, and meatheads in Chicago’s Union Park is getting bigger and bigger. With an overstuffed line-up of hipster favorites and a smart, well-ordered setup, this is still the best-run festival in America. But it wasn’t without headaches, creeping corporate sponsorship, and a shit-ton of humidity.
