As science and technology advance at a breakneck pace, it's getting more difficult than ever to figure out what's real and what's merely a figment of someone's imagination. I, for one, have fallen victim to satire news stories that seemed completely believable, and have read real news while shaking my head and saying, "This can't be true."

The first slide in each set will list four crazy-sounding heds. Only one of the four headlines is real: Look them over and decide which one is true. Advance to the next slide to see the answer.
