Netflix is pumping out scary movies and TV shows like nobody's business for Halloween season, and Stephen King seems particularly juiced about the new series The Haunting Of Hill House.

Just have 2 big dogs beside you, and it's fine.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation.

Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
