Real or Fake - Flying Spider Invasion!
Now the mysterious Flying Spider has re-appeared in 2014 and it comes from a tech repair service called Digital Plumbing. The main question: "is it Real or Fake?"
Do you have a fear of spiders? I really don't like them myself, they are just creepy to me. Now, I will admit the thoughts of flying spiders is something I really don't like to think about.
But everyone can rest easy when it comes to this report of flying spiders, the story is a fake.
The image of the winged spider has been digitally modified and inserted into a newspaper picture.
Oh how can I be sure you ask? well here is the original photo of the winged spider:
Notice this is the exact same picture used in the fake newspaper article, well minus the wings.
The original photo was first posted on the Carolina Nature Webpage, which is a site with a lot of spider photos, avoid it if you are like me and find spiders creepy. The credit for the photo was to a Will Cook, he must be a brave man to get this close to a creepy spider of any kind. yuck.
Now, in the 2014 version of the "flying spider" post from Digital Plumbing they admit it is a fake and are using it to educate internet users that you can get viruses and malware from clicking on these fake news reports.
