Ok…I thought about doing some lame post (like I was giving up blogging – I could almost hear the applause if that were true) in honor of April 1 otherwise known in these parts as April Fools day.
Instead as a public service, I have decided to educate my faithful readers so they don’t get dupped on this illustrious day.
I have had Snopes in my blog roll for some time. Want verification that an urban legend is true/false? This is a great resource. ex When you friend swears that you keeps emailing you the same thing over and over because Microsoft said they would pay money for it. Obviously nothing you can say will make him stop but pointing him here might.
The other site I found recently is The Museum of Hoaxes. It is similar to Snopes but as they explain they are “dedicated to promoting knowledge about hoaxes. On our blog we post about dubious- sounding claims, and whatever else strikes our fancy.” For example one recent post finds the real woman behind the Acai Berry diet pictures. And guess what…she never took Acai Berry
Check them out before you are fooled!!!
