It’s that time of year when everyone is putting their last-minute Halloween costumes together and kids are getting ready to impress all of their friends around the neighborhood.

It’s really crazy, if you think about it, how fast information can spread in today’s day and age. If a single piece of information is found to be somewhat credible, it quickly gains a lot of traction and everyone spreads it around. Pretty soon the entire world believes something that isn’t true.

The gold nanoparticles form mostly in the keratin-rich area of the hair shaft, and are arranged in a pattern of whirls like a fingerprint” (ScienceNode).
