Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

Urban Myths and Another Favorite Website

We all get them!  That email from some well intentioned friend or family member with some story either meant to enrage you (usually about some politician...actually we don't need any fabricated stories to enrage, there's enough true happenings already out there to get your blood boiling), scare you (chemically treated business cards to incapacitate women or whatever the latest police warning is about the bad guys tactics) or perhaps just amuse you (Ben Stein's letter)!

One of the best sites we've found for getting to the bottom of what's real and what's not is www.snopes.com .  Do a search for the keywords of the email or photo, and before you know it, you'll have a False, True or Unconfirmed.  Then if you still want to pass it on, you'll at least know why you're not getting that big check from Microsoft or AOL for that beta program they're running that gives you money for passing on emails :)

Have a great day!

Bill & Liz

P.S. sometimes the emails have "Verified by Snopes.com" on the bottom of them.  Another urban myth, they often HAVEN'T been, so do your own homework and you'll know what's really going on!
