Snopes Don't Fail Me Now

My inbox is often cluttered with e-mails warning about the medicines I should remove from my bathroom, murderers jumping into the back seat of my car while I get fuel and killer clowns hiding in my bedroom. Because of these e-mails, I find myself at Snopes quite often.

For those unfamiliar with Snopes (Where have you been? Stop forwarding this crap to me!!) you can basically search for keywords and they'll tell you whether it's accurate information or just more BS that you should ignore.

I was always impressed with the amount of time they put into researching. Until.... today....

Did someone forget to send them the memo??



The world would be a better place if we could all see the world through the eyes of children... and Snopes...

It drives me crazy when people send me stuff without checking first. In fact, I wrote a whole long, ranting post about it a while back. I have one or two people that are ALWAYS sending me that crap and I always send the snopes link back to the offending party.

I am exactly the same as Gina. I hate when people forward stuff that they don't check out first.
My brothers friend sent me some long rambling email that was supposedly written by Jay Leno. I don't know Leno's political affiliation but I know he would have never spewn the hate that was in the body of the message. So I looked it up on Snopes, hit reply all inserted the link.
Holy shit was he pissed off at me. I got berated for embarrassing him. I think he embarrassed himself by sending out such stupidity and hate.
Anyway, that's my rant lol
