As long as it's not his Achilles' heel, it's all good, I would suspect.

Comment: My boyfriend is saying that once a car gets over 300K miles that
the dealer will buy it back. He says they like to show these cars off in
commercials since 300k is an impressive feet.

I think this smacks of urban legend.

It's true. His head is burried under the Pirates of the Carribean ride, and his torso is burried under Space Mountaine. However, he left his hart in San Famcisco.

They are not forzen in carbon, however. They are carbonated in forzen.

Comment: Yes on your legend on don't pee on an electric fence. It is comfermed that urinating on an electric fence can shok you. were as burn your privites. Not likkly. Also the myth of peeing on the third rail of a subway. You'd have to be holding the thrid rail to get the shock.

Such despair for the education there. And yet such hope, they obviously watch Mythbusters.

Yes, Buster did not get shocked in vain. Or not shocked, as the case may be.

Comment: Dear good peoples of snopes,

I have a few issues with a few of your legends. Number one is the Aladin
"good teenagers take off our clothes" one. On the classifacation it says
false, yet it should be undetermined, it's relaly somehting you have to
judge by ear and weather or not you hear it, which I could.
The second legend I have issues with is "If only I had a crane" a
munchkin hanging himself. There are actually multiple scenes where you are
said to see the dead munckin, not just that one, since it's clearly a
bird. If you cold, would you check this one out soem more, since tehre is
actually questions about this.
Thank you,
person

Odd way to spell groaning. Not sure if it would stunt your growth drinking anything while doing it, but it would be a neat trick.

It was a holiday week, AND we don't deliver on Sundays. If you don't get it on Monday then you'll know we're just screwing with you.
