Internet Myths, Legends and Hoaxes

Did you hear about the woman who was robbed when a man hid under her car in a Wal-Mart parking lot and slashed her ankles when she was opening her car door? If you did - you've been had! Go here for "the rest of the story."

Cyberspace has increased the number of urban legends going around and the speed with which they spread. One of my favorite sites is (formerly Urban Legends). It checks out internet stories - the funny, scary, silly, serious, etc., and reports on their veracity. Whenever someone sends me a "have you heard about" story, the first place I go is Snopes. It has a lot of fun stories, especially about celebrities, and some are even true!

You can do your own research by going here.
