Ok, I don't quite get tihs... Does he mean that the number "224 422 316 613 136" is in Order of the Phoenix, or that it contains one of 224 or 422 or 316 or 613 or 136?

Comment: For years your website has been like "God" to my friends, family
and co-workers. However, you recently let me/us down. We had heard of
the ghost in 3 Men and a Baby.... You say it is all a hoax.... however,
you go to great lengths to avoid discussing the little boy in the
movie.... who is he? How did he get there? How did someone soooooooo
young get into a very secure "hot set?" Right, he's a cardboard cutout
of Ted Danson?

The truth is there was a lawsuit - it settled for an "anonymous amount"
and you will not print that....

Now we know the truth... the truth is You are Paid to print what "they"
want you to print. Too bad.
And so another "god" bites the dust.
You are paid off, just like the rest of us.

Comment: My name is XXXXX XXXXXXXX, I am an artist, I created the artworks of Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Ditty kong, Mushroom kingdom, Princes Peach, Kirby and many more. I read about "Donkey Wrong" and you are correct somthing sounds off beat. Here is what happened, I know nothing about games, I create art and cartoons only. The names were also created by myself, I heard they were changed, for example Mario was called Jumpman, then change back to Mario. Why I don't know, maybe that because all of the artworks created by me were used without my permission, I have contacted responsible parties of course state that all artworks used are their property, also that no futher communication would be made. I have been in dispute for years, I did these artworks or cartoons after 1977. Mario was a friend of mine from my childhood. About Donkey Kong. I drew a donkey and made an upper body of a gorilla as a creature of two anmials, being so awful I thought it would be better to just continue with the gorilla. I called him Donkey Kong because of the two part animal, and the name stuck for just the gorilla alone.

Let's see. snopes was going for something in the Dr. Pepper omits "Under God" page... what was it again?? Oh, that's right...

a point.

Remember when the Bard used the words, "To sleep, perchance to dream..."? Try these.

To read, perchance to understand.

And snopes, I didn't realize you were a mind-nazi... and little to boot! Maybe you won't see him buying those "produts"!! [lol]

Besides, IF this were a true story (which is ISN'T), not purchasing a product whose business practices you disagree with is the best way to make your point. You can't write nasty emails to Coke and then keep buying it, why would they bother to do anything differently?

Since the protest was about something that appeared on Dr Pepper cans, I suspect even the boycotters will continue to drink Mountain Dew, Pepsi, and Coca-Cola.

Hey Eve, why did you decide that this joker was a "she"?? I automatically assume that stupid people are male... It may be bad of me, but I can't help it.

Sister Pink - and don't forget that Coke owns Pepsi as well! [lol]

And on a personal note to the "amazing artiste" (French spelling!). Um... you suck. Even with 1980s technology, dot-matrix pixillated screens could do better than that. You suck.

I think it just sounded to me like a woman's way of ranting, with the "Oh my God!" and the exclamation points.

If you tend to think male and I tend to think female when we read these, then I guess it balances out. Equal rights = equal opportunity to be a bonehead. [Smile]

I think teh confusion originates that Dr. Pepper is at least Bottled by Pepsi-cola which can be confused with coca-cola.

1) The island of Sicily and Vatican City aren't next door to each other. If you want to use your location as proof, choose one by the action.

2) With the number of people lining up to pay their respects, how is a kidnapper supposed to sneak through the crowds and get away with the body without being noticed?

Comment: Is it true that micorwave ovens continue to emanate radiation
when you stop the micorwave before the time runs out and you fail to
cancel the time remaining?

Someone at my workplace has become obsessed about this issue, to the point
of posting a handmade sign asking people to cancel any remaining time left
if they stop the microwave prematurely to take their food out.

To me, it doesn't seem possible, but stranger things have happened, so I
thought I would ask.

Comment: Dear snopes,

I'm afraid you do not know me, but unfortunately I am all too familiar
with you and your website. I hail from 200 years in the future, and the
Earth is but a blackened shell. As few as 100 humans survive, living in a
cramped bunker miles under the surface, awaiting a time when we may
re-colonise the planet, or are caught by the ever lingering embrace of
death. And as we do so we curse your very name.

It wasn't always this way, indeed just a short 50 years earlier you were
hailed as a God of truth, a fortress of truth, standing against ignorance.
The annual snopes' Day was used to strike down ignorance everywhere, and
this new approach lead to a Utopian society. Politicians realised they
could no longer placate the populous with untruths, and across the world
people were governed by truth.

Alas, then tragedy struck. The people's trust had become too great, too
complete. You transcended the bounds of false authority and were held
flawless. But more worryingly, that which should never been forgotten was
lost, and thus 'The repository of lost legends' became divorced from its
purpose and was incorporated into the great book of snopes as fact! Our
historians have since corrected this error, but our mistake had already
been revealed in the most tragic manner possible.

Thirty years ago the Earth came under threat of attack by a race of aliens
who had caught early earth television transmissions. They held Earth to
ransom, demanding to see more episodes of Mr. Ed. The people of Earth
obliged rapidly, gathering together all surviving episodes of the show,
but this was futile. The aliens had already seen all episodes that Earth
had broadcast, and thus it was necessary to make more.

Here you can perhaps see where our problem fell. In order to be faithful
to the original we consulted the book of snopes, and there found presented
the story concerning the original Mr. Ed. Armed with this knowledge, and
in order to please our alien oppressors, we decided to perform a new
episode of Mr. Ed live, presented in front of their Emperor. Fortunately
our scientists has already worked out that the aliens saw in black and
white only, and thus their vision would accurately reproduce the old black
and white televisions.

When the zebra was brought before the alien Emperor at the beginning of
the show he reacted with the level of disgust not previously seen outside
Chick tracts. Almost immediately the actors on stage and the zebra were
vapourised. The act was taken as an attempt to insult their leader and was
followed by a thorough nuclear attack on all Earth's major cities.

Too long have we lived confined in the bunker. Now snope's days are bitter
affairs, met with tears and pity parties. From this bitter and broken
humanity I have come. I plea to you to put an end to this the only way you
can. You must discredit yourself fully and publicly. Put everyone in no
doubt that you are but human, and not a God of truth. It will sacrifice
the years of Utopian life, but ultimately will save humanity. Should you
not do this I shall be forced to try and stop the incident with the Zebra
at the point at which it occurred, but unfortunately I do not feel that
those involved will tolerate that which to them will seem the ultimate
blasphemy.

there are 300,000 soviet troops here in the US just waiting for their
orders to take over us and send the "rebels" to the conentration camps.
rebels being gun owners who don't give up the guns, christians that don't

Comment: I was reading an article about Best Buy and the story came up
about the staff not recognising $2 bills. This reminded me of the Snopes
article on the same problem at Taco Bell. I was also taken by Mike
Bolesta's unusual name...well unusual here in Scotland. A 30 second
jumbling of the letters of MICHAEL BOLESTA generates I SHAME TACO BELL. I
notice that you have already updated your site with the Bolesta story but
I suspect the anagram proves that we are probably dealing with some prime
BS.
