Ross: Conspiracy theories about snow are now spreading on TikTok

The conspiracy world is panicking. With QAnon exposed as a fraud, and the White House Twitter account reduced to news briefings and fact sheets, where do you go to find out what they don’t want you to find out?


Here’s a headline: “Conspiracy theories about the snow in Texas keep spreading online”

It was reported that a million people searched #GovernmentSnow to see videos, including the woman who focused a hair dryer on a snowball at point-blank range and observes that it did NOT drip, therefore it is was NOT snow, but a white substance dropped on Texas by the government (#GovernmentSnow) – or worse, by Bill Gates.

Or it could be that you, my friend, have just discovered sublimation. A million views!

And I’m kicking myself because I once left a dish of water out overnight, and when I came back the next morning – GONE! And I didn’t even use a hair dryer! If only I’d posted it somewhere – like on utility poles, which is all we had back then – I would have been hailed as the discoverer of evaporation.

By the way, the government is doing absolutely nothing to stop evaporation, which is now happening ALL THE TIME … even on Mars – where we just landed a little helicopter to start searching for evidence of life. And I am getting very worried that whatever they find is going to be significantly smarter than what we have here.
