Yeah, this is amusing.

Several folks in my livejournal feed post the same picture of the front of Orwell's house with a security camera mounted outside. Naturally, I immediately search online for the string "orwell camera hoax" and get many hits - as I expected. Here's a good one:

It's a fake, ha ha. Of course, I can't comment on this without either having my comment marked as spam or having to sign up to yet another blogging service, so I'll just slip it into my friends feed and hope folks aren't so open minded they miss it. :)

Why do people believe photos on the internet?
