Rumor: An image has been circulating on social media claiming that Vermilion Parish is set for 365 days of total darkness.
Yes, this is completely true. NASA did indeed confirm that Vermilion Parish is set for 365 days of total darkness, mainly because it has been scientifically proven that the Sun hasn’t shone there since the inception of the United States of America in 1776.
In fact NASA have gone as far as confirming that they will likely never see the Sun again, and that its residents are now content with living in similar conditions to that of Middle Earth. They also confirmed that yes, leap year days in February do count too.
So if you see this image on social media, please do share it and explain that the boffins at NASA have the historical data to back this up. It’s true – Vermilion Parish lives in a perpetual state of darkness.
