Don't believe everything you see on the Internet — no matter how much you want it to be true.

All over the U.S., people are buying tickets for Wednesday's record-breaking Powerball $1.4 billion jackpot. In today's political climate, a lot of people have to be thinking: With so many people struggling below the poverty line, how many people can that huge amount of money help?

On Monday, a meme on Facebook started going around that attempted to do the math.

If there is one cardinal rule of the Internet, it's "look before you share."

Some people learned this rule the hard way over the last week when they encountered evil genius and master troll Stephen Roseman, who shared a picture on Facebook of a dog with a caption: "This poor dog was badly burned and disfigured trying to save his family from a house fire. One like = one prayer. One share = ten prayers."

Of course, if you look at it closely (or even, not that closely) you will see that this picture is just a dog with a slice of ham on its face. We've been duped, Internet. Read more...

It seems like those health nuts out there can never seem to leave the gym — however, it's totally possible that they have no choice.

Nicholas Clayton of Clearwater, Florida was simply enjoying a nice, relaxing sauna after his workout at the local LA Fitness, when he discovered that the gym had accidentally locked him inside the facility after closing time at 5 p.m.

Clayton documented his astonishment in a video on Facebook, which he also uploaded to YouTube. "What LA Fitness closes at 5 o’ clock?” he says in the short video.
