First Tupac, now Steve Jobs.
An eerie selfie posted to Reddit has sparked conspiracy theories that the Apple cofounder, who died — er, supposedly? — of pancreatic cancer in 2011 is actually still alive, and living in Brazil. The photo, uploaded by Redditor TheHorseSizedDuck, is captioned, “Steve Jobs is in Rio de Janeiro, alive.”
You may have heard that Pope Benedict XVI has announced his resignation amid concerns about his health. The last Pope to resign was Gregory XII, who did so in 1415, so web users prone to a good conspiracy theory are looking for a reason Benedict XVI would do such a thing. There’s no sex scandal or money laundering cover up. In fact, it turns out the reason is simple: The Pope’s resignation is a fulfillment of the “Gangnam Style” prophecy.
