Your Marathon Mileage May Vary

Here’s an athletic event tailored to fans’ love of running (which is to say, none whatever) — a fake marathon! Run Free 2013 will be not taking place all over the world next February 2. Register at their Kickstarter site for a buck, or more if you want the souvenir goodies.

There’s a saying on the internet: “Pics or it didn’t happen”.

In other words, if something is real, if it actually happened, there will be pictures to back that up.

But what if something DIDN’T actually happen, but there are STILL pictures of it? Does that mean it DID happen? If something is fake, how much evidence does it take before it becomes real?

That’s the question we’re trying to answer.
