from the Vice article:
I asked jokes_on_you how they spotted the difference. "I’ve sucked enough toes in my life to recognize when something doesn’t look right," they told me in a Reddit direct message. "Because we can’t dorsi- or plantarflex our 2nd-5th toes independently I knew it wasn’t a matter of the toe being bent. I thought that maybe she has some form of brachydactyly but her Wikifeet page has clear evidence to the contrary. So it was clear to me that it wasn’t her feet."

The Snopes page now has Wikifeet as a citation. 2019 is shaping up well so far.

Hang on, what. Did someone turn the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal into a movie monster we're supposed to take seriously? Looking forward to the Grue movie in 2020 then.

Though if "the end of time" is "when these Apple products break down", I suggest turning to your loved ones and hugging them right now.

When Apple products break down when they're exposed to the elements in a Namibian desert. I expect dust and grit are an issue.

So what you're saying is, "the end of time" is two years planned obsolescence away?
