"Rumor Has It"
—The Snopes.com tagline.

Snopes is very nearly the definitive website for busting urban legends and chain emails. They really have Shown Their Work, and while some things can't be proven, they can be proven false.

If someone sends you some stupid email, or posts on Facebook saying "Bubble Yum is made of spider eggs!" you can point them to the right place to figure out that no, it isn't. Or that "Amanda Bundy needs your prayers!" (she recovered years ago). Or, what about Craig Shergold? You know, the boy that was collecting greeting cards years ago? Well....Snopes checked, and Mr. Shergold made a full recovery, is now a healthy young man and -- having collected upwards of 33 million greeting cards -- respectfully requests that people stop sending them.
