How many times do you get those annoying, urban legend type emails forwarded to you by family, friends, and acquaintances? You know, like the one about the "syringe in the McDonald's Ball Pit".
Now you have a defense! Check out Snoops, the website that helps you disprove (or prove) the validity of these urban legend emails.
Check out their list of the 25 Hotest Urban Legands. You can also search by categories like Fraud & Scams or Old Wives' Tales.
Since discovering Snopes, I now take great pleasure in responding to these forwarded message with a message of my own that includes a direct link to the Snopes article that disproves (or proves) the content of the forwarded message. What's amazing is that it usually only takes one such response from me to quell the urge of other's to send me these types of emails.
Using Snoops to stop urban legend emails works for me! To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
One last thing, do any of you know how to get permanent marker off of wooden floors? We had one of those days yesterday!
**Edited to add**
Guess what? The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser suggestion that many of you gave me worked! We bought some today and used it on the permanent marker scribbles on our wooden floor. It came off and it doeesn't seem to have hurt the finish, although, that spot is quite a bit cleaner looking than the rest of the floor now. :)
Thanks so much for the advice!
