The Oral History of John Titor, the Man Who Traveled Back in Time to Save the Internet

Pretty good read from some people who lived it. I remember my buddy exposing it to me in like grade 9 or 10. Though, of course, I didn't know anything about the context of the Art Bell show then.

This should be taught in a sociology/psychology classes. Understanding how people are taken in could help prevent us from hooking wagon to the next fraud ( never know, one of these frauds could win the US Presidency ... ).

Even better, it should just be part of regular curriculum.

One teacher in my entire elementary school career brought up the word bias. It was in a writing class.
