I’m sure we all remember that day or few days on Facebook when you logged on a saw brooms standing up on their own. My first thought: Um, photoshop? Wrong. Apparently people were arguing that the planet’s were aligned in a certain way so that when a broom was stood up and let go of, it automatically could stand on its own. According to the video below by CNN, that was a false statement. In fact, you can stand a broom up any time and let go of it and it will stay standing… as long as you balance it correctly. The funny thing to me is that when one person saw someone upload the picture on Facebook, they immediately had to try it. I guess no one had ever thought to stand a broom up on it’s own before. But just like Koney, Sh*t ‘People’ Say, DrawSomething, Temple Run, the Cinnamon Challenge and planking, it was just another fad of 2012. Trying to tie standing up brooms with another fad–YOLO. “You Only Live Once,” popularized by Drake’s song, “The Motto” has BLOWN UP. People over use it on twitter, text and talking. I really want to know if people thought they lived twice before the song came out? I get it’s catchy, but it gets real old real fast when you can’t walk around a college campus without hearing someone say it. Regardless, that will die out too just like the many fads of the beginning of 2012. Hopefully some fun and different fads will be occurring soon.
