A person from the Snopes.com messageboards.
I love Snopes.com! Who knew there were message boards?

They're just a rumor...

"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny
Passion is easy; commitment is hard.
I heard that when you sign up for the Snopes message board, they send you some perfume, but when you smell it you lose consciousness, and then they steal your kidney as part of a gang initiation.

My website? http://www.anneglynn.com/
Most weeks, I write about writing and romance, and writing romances. Most weeks. You have been warned.
Oh, yeah, I just got an e-mail forwarded to me about that from someone ... with the subject line written in ALL CAPS with lots of exclamation points!!!!
I'm a long time lurker on the Snopes forums but never posted. I was always scared of saying something that would warrant the use of the emoticon of a smiley being hit with a fish.
Where does the dream end and reality begin?

I'm a Snopster when there is time from promoting my writing on my blog. Fave Snope's categories, Glurge, crime, medical, horrors, fauxtography. Sometimes it depends on how morbid my mood is.

I just fact check there when someone says they heard such-n-such. Albeit, they got me pretty good; they had a whole fake article on Mr. Ed being a zebra and dumbass me bought it.

Snopes is good. Reminds me of The Onion and even Hoax-Slayer. I'm going off on a tangent now: I often refer to Urban Dictionary, and I find reddit, esp. IAmA, weirdly facinating. For example:
I am Dan Harmon, creator of Community, writer of Monster House, and Executive Producer of the upcoming Charlie Kaufman Stop Motion Animated feature Anomalisa, ask me anything! (self.IAmA)

Who the hell is Jeff always texting????!!!!
I'm afraid that question is out of my hands now!!!
Holy shit, this exists.
Always wondered - how was the placement of the 7 study group members at the table decided? Did the actors pick their characters' own seats?
As a fan, I know that Pierce and Troy were paired because the original intention was that they'd be the comedic duo. I think Dan referred to them as a Beavis and Butthead-like pair in his head. . .
“Speeding and subsequent DUI,” he said.
“Is that right?” He asked it sharply.
“Oh, sorry,” I said. “Yes. Yes and yes, to both, I mean.”
He frowned and slowly shook his head. “Twenty-five over in a residential, then you blow a point-one-eight-six.”
That wasn’t a question either, but I thought I’d better answer it. “Yes, sir,” I said.
“That’s going to cost you, Taylor.”
I nodded. I didn’t like Officer Samuel Adams.
I read on the internet that everything Snopes writes is a lie. And the internet is never wrong.
Snopes has never sent perfume. It's Hoppe's No. 9 gunpowder solvent and just allows you to relax.
It's never been both kidneys, and most donors go on to lead normal, productive lives.
The so-called gang is the Oakland Raiders, and all proceeds from harvested organs are used to raise bail for players during regular season.
Manual only partied with Prince Harry and isn't really royal.
They pumped Rod Stewart's stomach and found several pints of Hoppe's No. 9 gunpowder solvent.
The Right Hand Rule available now.
The Secret at Haney Field: A Baseball Mystery available now.
I'd be more of a fan if the husband/wife team were truly neutral.
