if you think the invention of the internet has made people believe anything, you are dead wrong
when photographs were invented, people assumed anything in a photograph had to be real. so in 1917 some little girls drew pictures of fairies, cut them out, and took pictures of them in various positions. people bought it. sir arthur conan doyle even endorsed it in a scholarly article.
convincing as fuck, right???
THE GIRLS DIDN’T EVEN ADMIT THEY WERE FAKE TIL THE 1980′s!!!!
(for you history nerds, this is known as the “cottingley fairies” hoax)
