You must be watching Psychic FOX. They know everything before it happens.

Comment: Good Morning, I love this website and have used it often and more
and more "crap" comes my way.
In my last 4 searches, I've found nothing concerning the "urban legend" I
just received and am hoping that's not the norm and only an exception.
Keep up the good work...I HOPE.

Comment: This is actually an old one, but perhaps never reported. Verified...I don't know. In Bethesda, MD Burdette Rd is very hilly. The legend goes that two teens were driving about 90 trying to jump over the next hill. However, they did go aloft but came up short and crashed into that hill and were both killed. And that is why Burdette Rd was made more level in places

you guys already had on your site...I can't seem to find it using several
unique search words, so wanted to share the email to warn any gullible

Well, you're reading it so you must have received it. Check the "From:" field and you should have the answer to your other question.
