AS su­per storm Sandy hit the US last week the in­ter­net was flooded with im­ages of the af­ter­math but many were not what they seemed. Some came from Hol­ly­wood movies, in­cluded pho­to­shopped sharks or were old pic­tures por­trayed as new, but that didn’t stop many of them be­com­ing vi­ral sen­sa­tions. When there were so many amaz­ingly ter­ri­fy­ing real im­ages avail­able it makes you won­der why peo­ple would go to the trou­ble to cre­ate fakes . . . fur­ther ev­i­dence that peo­ple sim­ply have too lit­tle to oc­cupy them­selves these days.
