I don’t know about you guys but I think I get about 15 emails a day warning me that my toilet is going to explode, that eating bananas will make me blind, or that I have won $50 billion in a foreign lottery. There is always some nice little note with the email – “better watch out” or “I thought you should know”. My reply – You might want to check Snopes.com before you forward emails like this…LOL.

In case you don’t know, Snopes is a FREE online site that debunks urban myths. It has been around for many years and it is considered by most to be THE place to go to verify if something is true or not. The best part is they give you detailed facts on where the myth originated from and why it is/or isn’t true. So next time you receive any email (seriously try them all!) check it out on Snopes, I think you are going to be FLOORED by what you find out!

Here’s a few of the ones I checked out this week:

WARNING: the only bad thing about Snopes is there is a pop up the comes up when you enter the site. They do not charge for this site (its FREE!) so they use ads to pay for it. It’s annoying but not hurtful.

    The funniest thing is that now some of the stupid false email chains say at the bottom “I personally verified this at (and then post a snopes link)” I guess to make you not look it up yourself (and judging by the fact that people are sending them to me, I guess it works). But when you do look it up, it shows that it is indeed a tall tale LOL

    In matters of opinion, though, Snopes can be biased in their assessment.
