When I first heard we were all going to float in the air at 9:47 a. m. PST on January 4th, 2015 I laughed, figuring this latest Internet┬rumor would prove too silly to spread very far.┬Boy, was I wrong. ┬This week the bogus claim has already been shared over a million times on Facebook.

Surprise! Asteroid Crashes And Raindrop Splashes Look Almost Alike
