New Evidence Points to Myspace as Catalyst in Educational Depression of 2300

This discovery, if validated, will be one of only 10 remaining pages left in existence today, and according to unnamed sources at Seton Hill University of Internet Sciences, could expose the true reasons behind the almost complete depletion of both public and private schools circa 2300.

Though several prominent scientists at the competing University of Saint Vincent claim that the site is a flagrant forgery, the official declaration thus far seems to be that the relic is genuine, causing quite a stir in the scientific community.

Official reports state the name of the page to be “Black Tears at Midnight,” and it contains, among other things, an official log of an apparent 18 year olds decision to drop out of an antique public school. In a private interview, Dr. Dennis Jerz VIII of Seton Hill told The Post that 8 out of the 10 existing pages contained remarkably similar accounts, possibly linking the overuse of sites like Myspace to the decline and eventual demise of almost every type of organized education. —Paul CrossmanNew Evidence Points to Myspace as Catalyst in Educational Depression of 2300 (The Stoop)

One of my students submitted this for an assignment that asked them to use digital documents of today to support claims about what researchers from the future might conclude about our society. I encouraged them to be creative.
