Comment: "Every Rectal Thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson
is personally tested"

I hate to ruin a good joke, but I work at Johnson & Johnson and I can
honestly tell you that each rectal thermometer is not personally tested
(or shall we say inserted up the wah-zoo) in the way that you are
thinking.

Thermometers are randomly sampled and tested to ensure that they comply
with the thermal range indicated on the glass and that they are calibrated
to their operational range.
The Thermometers are randomly sampled and tested for glass shatter
resistance, as this is a destructive test it is not performed on 100% of
the product, just a representative sample size.
The testing methodology subjects the Thermometers to greater scrutiny and
empirical qualification acceptance than simply inserting it into a human
orifice and watching the temperature rise. Kind of thought provoking to
think how they would read the thermometer in that position anyway. Oh
well!

I am sure that there are other occupations out there that are really awful
and miserable, but the Quality Control Test Laboratory here at Johnson &
Johnson is not one of them.

Comment: In the section about luck there is a false statement about a man
buying a motorcycle that belonged to Elvis. I believe that this man sold
the bike to Jay leno. Keep digging. I think it's true.

Comment: In your article about Dr. Pepper omitting "Under God" from the
pledge of alegiance you say that Pepsi has nothing to do with it. Dr.
Pepper is a soft drink manufactured by Pepsi

Comment: The Article on Clyde Barrow writing a fan letter to Ford Motor
Company is currently on undetermined status. Well I could verify this, I
live in Dearborn, MI where Ford Motor Company World Headquarters is
located, as well as Henry Ford's Mansion, founder of Ford Motor Company.
Well Clyde Barrow did write a Letter, but it was directed to Henry Ford
himself, appreciating the T model car. The letter is currently preserved
and hangs in his Mansion, which has become a museum, located in Dearborn,
MI 48126. This story is true, and the status should change from
undetermined to true, and it should be corrected that the letter was
mailed to Henry Ford, and not his company.

Man, are people complete morons?

Oh wait. Yes, they are.

Comment: With reference to the Walmart check scam:

I don't know if Walmart in Colorado is a test site or if this exists
throuhgout the US but Walmart no longer actually takes your check. They
run it through their system and your account is immediately debited and
then they give you back the actual check. This is very effective for
Walmart but a PIA for me personally. I no longer use checks at Walmart
but a credit card...let them pay another 2 or 3% for my inconvenience.

Comment: Bank of America issuing credit cards to illegals. Not a shred of
truth. The media and your site can publish articles with no reprocussion.
It is not true and never has been true.

To obtain the card you must be a BANK customer and meet all the
guidelines. Tax ID or Social security number.

Then you can get the card.......Call the bank......in Charlotte NC and ask

I thought your site would have done this first...NO just like the rest of
the media. Print what you want and never do your home work!!!!

The Texas Prison Museum has a copy of the letter, but to my knowledge it is not currently on display. Heard it from the curator himself.

Shhhhhh. Here, you need this. Now lie down and don't read any more mail until the silly people go away...

Comment: what are you smoking - let me tell you that i clicked on the link
displayed in the email sent to me from a .edu source suggesting i view a
virtual card and was promptly infected with a trojan. perhaps you should
check your facts before writing rubbish on the internet!!! i'll bet that
the invitation email - one of which was also sent to me and which i
deleted off the server was a virus ---- maybe you're not so smart!!!

Comment: Your assessment located on
http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/cell411.asp is misleading. The
deadline to register with the Do Not Call registry is false. However, two
important items are not false:
1. The Do Not Call registry DOES allow you to register your mobile phone
number.
2. Telemarketers are NOT prohibited from calling your mobile phone.

Comment: What you are doing in this article is the opinion of a few
people. Why don't you now print the polls of all the people in Canada
where they consider what they value most in the country by a wide margin
is their health care. It is way above their natural beauty and anything
else. You are such a joke I can't beleive anything you put out. Someone
sent this to me. What a bunch of big money paid off jokers. Read your
stupid article and turn it over to a reliable reviewer.

Comment: I don't know who told you this was not so. I personally know that Citgo is owned by the President of Venezuela and he does support terrorism. I work for an organization that keeps check for our government on these matters. You need to check out your sources closer. This could be dangerous printing false info to people that believe what you say is the gospel.

I personally know that you're a moron. And, given this email, I'm much more inclined to believe my source than yours.
