We get so many emails to our inboxes, how do you know what you can believe and can't.
Check on an urban legends website such as http://www.snopes.com/
This trusted website dedicates it's time to sorting through the mess so we don't have to take the time. It can help us before we invest our hard earned money or time into something that isn't even real or before we inundate our friends inboxes with untrue stories.

Thanks for posting this. If only more people knew about Snopes.com! Most of the e-mail stories and "unusual photos" are urban legends, doctored photos, and untrue embellishments of partial facts. Many "missing child" e-mails are hoxes as well! My favorite part of Snopes.com is the "glurge gallery" which pokes a little fun at all the corny e-mails that go around and around (some I've gotten at least 20 times!) Keep spreading the word and we'll all get less spam and nonsense!

My daughter and her boyfriend are both graduates from UT (Texas) and work in web related businesses. They say to go to snopes to see if it's real, and don't believe everything you read on the internet! My problem is that you are a part of the internet. So, since you're a part of the internet, and all media, has some bias, how can I believe what you say is true? Who made snopes the "truth authority"? I'm not being a smart@$$, but really want to know.

Is it true that Yahoo! Messenger will be no longer on November 17th of 2008?

Sept. 21, 2008, lots of food products in Taiwan tested with Melamine. Year 2007, US cats and dogs died suddenly, they found that pet food from China contained Melamine. Adding Melamine in milk reduces milk content and it is cheaper than milk so it lowers capitalization costs. It can give the business man more profit!
