To be fair, I'm pretty liberal with posting links to snopes because seriously people.

Not disagreeing with these examples but I'd be careful using Snopes as gospel. After all, it's still just a website run by two people.

I have no idea what the latter has to do with the former.

The Dutch have a saying that gets right to the heart of it: "If a story ain't true, can't be discovered by two." (For some reason, the Dutch prefer to say the saying in English.) The website needs a third person to properly debunk falsehoods. A fourth would be even better, just for insurance.

I'm not saying that they aren't correct in these examples. Not by a long shot as I agree that they are pertaining to what's being said. All I'm saying is that I've seen many people say that since it's on Snopes it must be true. Whereas I'd rather look into it more deeply than just say, "Oh it's on Snopes, so it must be true."

More sad than dumb, but related to Facebook, so I'll put it here. I've had a couple of friends who started posting lots and lots of updates about their new fitness regimens and diets, and about how they were getting into such good shape. Then gradually those posts stopped appearing. And eventually I see pictures of them on Facebook in which they look exactly like they did before the exercise regimen.

These are my friends, and so I want them to succeed. I know they were posting all those updates, in part at least, to put pressure on themselves not to quit. But then they did.

Long time ago I mentioned a guy who kept posting his two mile in 25 minute running routines. He stopped posting for about six months, then they came back. Looked at his pictures, and he'd gained at least 50 lbs.

Moving to Minnesota was not good for him.

This is a friend-of-a-friend I made through my "filmmaking" contacts. I was supposed to start making hip-hop beats for him if I wasn't completely out of commission in that regard as well. Now I honestly don't know if I could do any business with him in good faith, since his statuses are a perpetual embarrassment.

Somehow, I think Piobaire would appreciate this:

She works as a promotions girl for a "Girls Gone Wild"-type company that goes from bar to bar, inducing drunk girls to show their tits and lick whipped cream off each other.

So yeah, she's pretty much my dream girl.

These aren't friends of mine, but the shit people post after news stories on Facebook while trying to be funny is some of the most cringe inducing, unfunny shit I've ever read (I didn't bother blurring names out since they posted this on a public FB page).

^^ I don't know, I thought a lot of those replies were really funny. The seafood was frozen! And so it will melt (because there was a fire)! LOL!
