This is a blog post copied from John's Website - please feel free to join him there and post comments. He has set up openid, so you can post there with your livejournal account using your openid, which is the same as your journal url minus the http://.

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: http://reason.com/blog/2012/02/07/orwellian-irony-in-the-extreme

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?
