Flowchart: HOWTO determine internet truth.

The truth, as revealed by Sean Bonner, who is, incidentally, kickin' it in Vienna this month with the freaks from monochrom. Here's a post he did today about a presentation by Scott Blake on Barcode Art.


  1. Let me be the first to point out the redundancy flaw at the end of the chart, where the arrow leading from the final ‘yes’ flows back up to the beginning. It should simple head straight for ‘it’s the truth’.

    Sorry, but I feel like the flowchart meme should be over, anyway.

  2. @Pehmands – that “redundancy flaw” is required for the joke to work.

    Yes, there’s no other logical option than to immediately follow yes but you’re following yes /because YOU put it on the internet/.

    This is fundamentally different from the first iteration of “Is it on the Internet?” -> Yes -> “It’s the truth”. The joke is that you can’t believe anything you don’t see on the Internet (iffy logic at its best, obviously) even if you couldn’t believe it until you put it on the Internet – a patently broken statement.
