Yeah... And none of us have NEVER seen this pic before.
I think it's a fox with mange.

Pfft, so obvious, the date's just backwards. It's actually 01/11/09 and is a prediction of TEH FUTURES!

Now that's just silly...

But consider this - if you blow it up real big, you can clearly see Atta's face in the plane's cockpit window.

Oh wait...

Now it doesn't so much look like him. It could be someone else.

I think it's just a shadow.

The shadows don't look right. I vote fake.

Comment: I recently heard a rumor about George W. Bush. It stated that,
during a super bowl party, he choked on a pretzel and passed out! Is this
true?

Comment: I saw this video on myspace that is of a University of Florida
student asking Senator Kerry a question. The video is on YouTube under "UF
Lacks Freedom of Speech." The student is arrested and then shocked by a
taser because of the kind of question he is asking. I don't believe this
one and I usually go to this website when I have my doubts but ya'll
didn't have it. So I figured I would submit it and see what ya'll say. So
help me out is this one true or false.

Lainie 21 September 2007 06:20 PM

Now, be fair, snopes. That last one has only been living in a cave for a week or so.

snopes 28 September 2007 06:45 PM

Comment: I seen this on myspace. Is there any truth to it?

This is the boy, Matthew Shepard. On October 7, 1998 Aaron McKinney and
Russell Henderson lead him to a remote area east of Laramie where they
demonstrated unimaginable acts of hate. Matthew was tied to a split-rail
fence where he was beaten and left to die in the cold of the night. Almost
18 hours later he was found by a cyclist who initially mistook him for a
scarecrow. Matthew died on October 12 at 12:53 am at a hospital in Fort
Collins, Colorado. KILLED BECAUSE HE WAS GAY!!!

Dr. Dave 28 September 2007 06:53 PM

And to be fair about this one, it was 9 years ago (has it been that long?!) and the peak myspace crew would have been 7 or 8 years old at the time.

BTW, did y'all know that George Bush's Father was President too? And that Vice President dude was like in charge of the Army or something? And they had a war in Iraq, too?

I heard that Paul McCartney was in another band before Wings.

I thought I remember that as a joke on SNL many year ago. Something like, "She's so young, she thinks the Beatles were Paul McCartney's first backup band...".

Comment: I heard that the US Gov. was heavily indebted to lots of foreign
governments. Does the US government borrow money from foreign governments?

Comment: I heard that Obama has admitted to use of a unlawful drug? Is
this true?

Dr. Winston O'Boogie 17 January 2008 06:54 PM

Actually, didn't a reporter jokingly ask him if he inhaled and his response was "Of course, isn't that the idea?"

No, this one is actually false. Turns out it was all a hoax put on by the Laramie Chamber of Commerce to boost tourism. I went to school in Laramie, so I know.

It is absolutely true.

Bill Clinton has a long-cherished smoking pot in which he has prepared many dishes. He is particularly fond of smoked salmon, but has also used this pot to prepare smoked cheddar. Hillary, on the other hand, is particularly fond of smoked hams, and no longer enjoys the store-bought varieties.

I sure have, and they're delicious. I particularly like the chocolate chip tracking cookies (which you can get by visiting the Keebler website). But stay away from the Little Caesar website. They use tracking pizzas instead and it leaves your computer all soggy and covered in tomato sauce.

I'm rather partial to the Sandies (no pecans). Where do I click to get those instead?

Comment: I have heard that Ted Williams head was cryogenically frozen in a
lab, and they are going to bring him back to life some day. Have you heard
this? They always talk about it on Coast to Coast am.

As opposed to naming her....?

Oh, wait.

This also could have gone under "Death by Punctuation."

Comment: In an article from taken from the New York Times internet flaws,
the Dallas Morning News (Texas) included a "Checklist Play it Safe"
information box that said a websites address should start with "https" not
"http" if the site is secure. This article was published in the Dallas
Morning News (Texas) on 7-30-2008. Is this true? I checked some of the
sites I regularly visit and they all begin with "http." I would appreciate
any information on this.

snopes 05 August 2008 05:51 PM

Comment: Several weeks ago I got an email from my OWN email address except
the letters were all in lower case. I did NOT open. I deleted it, and
went to my recently deleted mail and permanently deleted it from that too.
I then sent everyone that I frequently email a note telling them about the
strange incident and then told them a code that I would send in my subject
so that they would know not to open any mail from me unless it had that
specific code in the subject. I asked them to let me know if they got any
mail from me that didn't have the code and no one got any. Now one of my
friends told me that she heard that there is a virus that uses your email
address. DO you know anything about a virus like that?

snopes 24 September 2008 06:11 PM

Comment: I was told that Barack Obama is pro-choice! Is that true.

Cowboy Joe 24 September 2008 07:21 PM

This is absolutely true. He was chosen as a second round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders in 2005. But a conflict soon erupted between him and the team management. He did not want to have to play football during Ramadan - the Muslim holy month. Therefore, he was released from the team and pursued his long loved hobby of whittling Richard Pryor figurines from walnut wood and selling them for $2 a pop at Illinois street corners.

snopes 01 October 2008 07:46 PM

Comment: As a member of the Illinois state senate, Sen. Obama claims to
have spoken out against our going to war with Iraq. Is this true?

snopes 04 October 2008 07:57 PM

Comment: I received an e-mail stating that web-sites that have http means
it is NOT a secure web site for using your credit/debit cards and only the
ones with https are secure. It said that http with the s at the end means
"secure". Is this true?
