I know because I Read It On WhatsApp!

With the world growing at a rapid pace, it is important to keep ourselves updated. It is very crucial to know what is going around us so that we can be aware of it. Reading or watching the news is one of the best ways to know about what is happening around us. Recently people are reading the news out of social media, especially WhatsApp.

WhatsApp is a social media platform meant to communicate with loved ones and have a good time. It is also great for group conversations. But some “experts” started forwarding messages as news which are created by some dumbheads to have fun.

They also have the other name called “conspiracy theorists.” In this article, let us talk about the most pathetic WhatsApp forwards which are called the news. As the world is suffering from a pandemic, a vaccine or a drug is necessary for it to go back to normality.

Bill Gates through is foundation called “Gates Foundation” has started a research on vaccine. In 2015, Bill Gates talked in a ted talk about the future wars and how it can include bio weapons. Then some dumb head who had no work to do said Gates is a part of corona virus pandemic.

They have also spread the news saying his vaccine has chips, which watches people and their moments and controls them. Imagine a scenario, we humans are a population of 7.8 Billion people. Each and every one of us needs a shot of the vaccine to protect ourselves from the virus.

If Bill Gates really wants to insert chips in us to control us, he needs the same population as a staff to monitor us. This is basic common math which my nephew can do, and he is 7 years old. This is like basic common sense and math anyone can do, and their theory can just disappear like that whoosh!

The other fake news forward on WhatsApp is from the country of India. There came a forward saying Government is spraying pesticides over people to protect us from the virus. Many of them thought it is true and shut their doors. Even I was the victim of it, the message came in summer and it was a hot day. Boy, the sweat that day was unbelievable.

If the virus dies just by washing hands with soap, why on earth would the government need to spray pesticides. Any person who passed 5th-grade biology can understand this. Therefore, these people who send these forwards on WhatsApp are dumber than children or have absolutely zero knowledge of science.

The other is also from the India. The Hon’ble prime minister of India asked all Indians to clap their hands to honor and salute frontline workers for their service. Poor guy just wanted to show that the country is together to fight the virus. But our WhatsApp experts went to a laboratory and conducted experiments.

The messages like “the science behind clapping is that with the sound and vibrations can kill the virus in the air.” By reading this even my neighbour’s cat said: “what the fluff?” I mean how did these guys even pass schooling? I’m sure their IQ test would be negative. After that, most of the population believed that and forwarded the same.

There is one more legendary WhatsApp forward from India. Again the Prime Minister asked to lit lamps to show the unity of the country. However, online scientists got another theory. They said “With the heat from all the lamps, the atmosphere temperature would increase by 2 degrees and that will kill the virus. According to science, if the temperature of the earth rises by 1 degree, one by a third of the ecosystem will be extinct.

When I saw that temperature will be increased by 2 degrees I lost it. That is the worst forward I have ever seen. Not only these, there are many more of these which circulate in WhatsApp. People believe in this and go gaga over things. There is a way to decrease this so that less bull shit flows in the social media.

When you receive a forward, open google type it and read the news section. The news you see over there is real and even the news channels provide proofs to cross-check. There are also some websites that do a fact check of news for you. Finally, The government is way too busy and are not in a mood to keep feeding you false news. Wake up and be a responsible user. It would be really awesome if there is a test for people to use the internet.
