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.
