It forever amazes me that people who really should be smart enough to know better don’t run a quick Snopes check before passing along one of those endlessly replicating Internet/Facebook/email stories of the “This really happened!!” sort.

In general, the chances that one of these stories is actually reliable diminishes with each additional exclamation point and heated assertion that EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ THIS!!!!
