It's odd. It's reached the point where I verify and "fact" that seems alarmist. Regardless of the subject matter.

"Politician says he'd stone gays!" Fact check -- False
"Dogs die if you give them ice!" Fact check -- False
"Sea levels are rising at unprecedented rates!" Fact check -- False

It seems that any sentence that ends with an exclamation point lately is false. What's the world coming to?
