It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well.

The talk page for the imaginary article "list of infohazards", in which editors' arguments become progressively more... off...

Story set on a world with a 3:2 spin-orbit resonance (like Mercury) so that it's solar day is twice as long as it's year. On this world day and night largely take the place of the seasons in terms of significance. The actual seasons take the place of months in the local calendar system (eight total in a day)

EDIT:
Another idea(s):

*The mysterious cthulhu mythos bartending school Vodkatonic University

*Reverse capchas; Read a barcode to prove that you're a robot

*Vampire story ends with the vampire being killed by being immersed in a mikvah

Psychic weapons development and deployment by a team of hippies that, from the outside, look like they only play hackey sack and other related hippie sports. Actually, they spin and float tulpas, painted like their targets and launched with mind lazers.

The Apocalypse actually happens. The story follows the rise and fall of a prepper community that survives and tries to recreate civilization, only to buckle under the weight of their task.

A noir story set in the insular world of professional c-list celebrity impersonators.


I am not “full of hate” as if I were some passive container. I am a generator of hate, and my rage is a renewable resource, like sunshine.

A parody of The Haunting of Hill House called The Haunting of White House, from the perspective of a scatterbrained narcissist who is influenced by the angry ghosts of the dead to join the government.

That happens in the game Fallout: New Vegas. Except that they're not hitmen. But there is a shootout involving an armed group of Elvis impersonators

Elvis, despite everything, is an A-list celebrity, although his impersonators may be C-list. I'm talking about people who professionally impersonate the lead actors in Asylum titles, people who were rejected in the first episode of reality TV shows, people used as examples during presidential election campaigns, the spokespeople for RC-level soda brands, or youtube personalities with 10k subscribers.

That's more D-list. C-list would be like the guy who played Fred Figglehorn
