A photograph of a man holding up what appears to be a winning Powerball ticket has gone viral on Facebook, except it's unmistakably fake (trivia: the first five numbers of Powerball tickets are always printed in numerical order). Uploaded by a Facebook user named Nolan Daniels, the picture is accompanied by a message that is already too good to be true: "Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!" As of Friday evening, the post has accumulated more than 968,000 shares on Facebook and will likely break through 1 million shares in the matter of hours.

A $30,000 Breguet timepiece, pictured on the church's website on the arm of Patriarch Kirill I, later went missing from the photograph; the watch's reflection on the table did not. Russian bloggers spotted the discrepancy and erupted over the church's flaunting its lavish wealth. The Patriarchate, who has denied wearing the watch, vowed to investigate the "technical mistake."
