    Default Urban Myth or Reality

    I just wanted to give everyone a link to this site. It solidifies or debunks EVERY urban myth you have EVER heard of...plus a few you didn't know!
    Also, ever wonder if those internet photos you see are real? It's also a great place for crazy daily news.
    Let me know what you think!

    I love Snopes.com. Whenever I get those chain emails showing some missing child, or how some common substance can cause cancer, etc. I always check Snopes and then ruin their day by telling them that their email is a bunch of crap!

    Snopes is ace, one of my first regular haunts when we first got the interwebs. The message board is quite hardcore though....I'm too scared to post there!

    I do that too. I just sent reply emails to three people with links to the Evan Tremblay page.

    I frequent both Snopes.com and the UL forum at About.com every day; Snopes has daily updates, as well as odd news stories.

    Bizarre. I wonder why my second link above redirects to GR? It should be: Truth Or Fiction - email reality check - verify rumors

    Snopes is awesome, I use it quite often especially if I get chain emails.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
