Speed of Rumor YKTTW Discussion
|Speed of Rumor|
Rumor is (somehow) faster than word-of-mouth should be.Already have?
Have we got this one? This is where the powers that be officially declare something -- but either everyone knows it within five minutes (despite it taking more than five minutes to read out) or everyone knows it already.. This is NOT a case of Gossip Evolution or a Not Secret; it's a case of communication being faster than light. It is particularly true of militaries and the Close-Knit Community.
