If you’re in the 80s or 90s and you see in movies the fact that sharks are instantly attracted to human blood, you take that as a fact. You might say “I learned about it in a movie”.
However, it’s 2019. And now there’s Google, Quora and whatnot — you can actually “fact check” it.
“Fact check” is the confirmation that we’re in another period of time than we were a couple of years ago. In the past, you might’ve said:
You’ve heard it in a movie? Must be pretty accurate — it’s the best we’ve got, so it’s probably true
But that simply doesn’t hold water anymore in a 2019 world.
And apparently, the idea that sharks are just attracted to human blood in water and instantly dropping whatever they were doing to hunt that? It’s a bit of a… myth.
I’m sure a lot of people still consider this idea a fact. And it’s normal — it’s another step in our evolution. However, if they’re really curious, they will find the truth — or at least what’s deemed as common knowledge today.
We’re not in the IT era anymore. Many things are more valuable than information — it’s time we adapt our products to it.
