Today I received a copy of an email that said I would be paid hundreds of dollars if I forwarded the message to a bunch of people. It claimed to be real, to have been on the nightly news, and to have been on a 2-page spread in USA Today.
My favorite website to visit to check out various myths as fact or fiction is http://www.snopes.com. And I.m sorry: they now have a few ads. Of course, the banner ad they had was for Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel.an awesome show.
Anyway, I.ve used Snopes for years and have found it be to very thorough and accurate. Every now and then, I check something out that I think is a myth and find it to be partly true. Maybe this site will be useful to you, too. It.s fun just to poke around and see what myths are out there!
