Comment: While checking out a rumor, a voice told me I had been picked out
to complete a 30 second survey, and would then be awarded a prize...Hmmmm.
Is this connected with your site??? I never click onto any of these
things, but thought it surely would not have been hooked to snopes.
Nevertheless, I resisted my temptation. Was I correct?

You heard The Voice (TM)? And you did nothing about it?

Boy, did you blow it! An opportunity such as that only comes to a very select few. Wealth, power, fame and glory were within your grasp. And yet you let it all slip away.

Twenty years from now, you'll rue the day that you heard The Voice (TM) and threw it all away.

Rue, rue, rue, I tell you!

Comment: actually it is true
http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/undergod.asp

my Uncle just purchased some today and when he discovered this he took
them back to the store and demanded a refund. So maybe it wasn't true then
but it is now! He lives in the Houston Texas area and it is August 28,
2011 today!

OMG! It is true!!!!!eleventy-one!!!

Nowhere on my Coke or Pepsi can are the words "under God". Nor is it on my Budweiser, Dr. Pepper, Skoal or Crisco can. It is now a nationwide conspiracy!

But first, he had the forethought to take some pictures, which will be showing up in snopes' inbox momentarily, right? Right?

Hello?

It's true. All those people in the North used to have such long, cold winter nights. It was just unfair. So the UN installed a second sun to alleviate the problem.

It goes to show that with a little international co-operation, we can achieve things on a solar scale.

Next question?

Comment: You say that Barack Obama is not a muslim. I actually saw a
news item several months ago, with him talking to Muslims and he said
"After all, I am a Muslim, too".

That is not false. It was on the news, but I have never seen anything
about it since. I feel sure that he qited this newscast.

Also, when Michelle went overseas (I think it was Indonesia) several
months ago, she stated: "This is my husband's birthplace".

That is not false. It was on the news, but I have never seen anything
about it since. I feel sure that he quited that down.

Dear snopes:

Is wearing a helmet required for your work in reading comments posted like this?
Coz otherwise you could have the life span of NFL tackle.

by the government. this rumor has gone on for years and there's no clear

Comment: Recently I have been hearing a door open and then sometime later
the door closes. This occurs while I am on AOL reading or writing email
messages. Any idea where this sound is coming from?

My guess would be the door. Have you checked the rest of the house to see if anything is missing?

Squirrels! Those fuzzy-tailed tree rats get into everything (and they love chewing on e-mails).

Aren't those the old chat sounds on AOL to signify a person entering the chat and leaving the chat?

Comment: Just wondering, I could swear that I saw this one years ago. Are
you sure that it is so recent? The date on the receipt could have been
changed.
