One of my main problems with the current "War on Drugs" is how often blatantly false scare tactic stories are spouted as fact.

Even offical government backed and mandated anti-drug programs such as D.A.R.E are rife with drug based urban legends. I remember the officer in my D.A.R.E. class in junior high telling the story of Diane Linkletter jumping to her death on L.S.D.

I'd wager that despite being proven false the infamous "Jimmy's Story" article that appeared in the Washington Post is still the most common image most people have in their minds about heroin.

Ahem...while I absolutely agree with the rest of your great post, I have to address this issue. I have...a friend who...experiences unusually long and/or extreme reactions to hallucinogens. This...friend of mine...regularly would have tripping episodes that were much longer than the ones that...other people...would experience. 12 hours seemed to be the average for most of the people...my friend...knew, but not for...my friend. 20 - 26 hours was more normal for...my friend...when using LSD. Less for mushrooms.

The problem with the gomment coming clean about the true dangers of various drugs is that they'd have to then face the question of whether or not to legalize the ones that are clearly not as dangerous as alcohol or tobacco. So they have to keep that charade going.

Comment: THIS IS TRUE!!! One afternoon in the early 1980's, I was at work
at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton WA when my boss came down the
hall roaring with laughter. His wife has been at the Navy Federal Credit
Union during lunch hour of a Friday payday. This was prior to direct
deposit and ATMs, and the bank was packed. My boss recalled his wife's
phone call to him after she had arrived back home.

She had stood in line for an hour waiting for a teller. A lady with a 5
year old stood in line a few people in front of her. He played with the
water fountain, deposit slips, a bored child waiting for an hour in a
crowded place, trying to occupy himself. After many "come here", "don't
play with that", "leave that alone" etc., he finally knocked over the sand
filled ash tray. In frustration she told the little boy to "come here and
be good or I'll tell your daddy and he'll deal with you when he comes
home". To which he replied "I wouldn't do that Mommy, or else I'll tell
everyone you had Daddy's pee-pee in your mouth last night". The bank went
quiet and the lady (who was almost to the teller) grabbed the kid and
left.

My boss's wife got to the teller, went home and called her hubby with the
story. I got on the phone and called my hubby who worked at the shipyard,
and by this time the story had already filtered through the whole
waterfront.

This story is TRUE!. It happened at the Navy Federal Credit Union in
Bremerton WA. I was suprised to see this story (with a few changes)
appear in Readers Digest about 10 years later, and then start appearing in
e-mails 10 years after that.

Comment: re: Sharks in New Orleans after Katrina.

While I certainly wouldn't expect you to take my word for it, I can
promise you that there was at least 1 shark swimming in New Orleans, as it
was found (and filmed) in the parking lot of my company in New Orleans
East when some staff and management went out a couple of days after the
storm to check damage to our facility.

Comment: The article about a hot dog
used for sexual purposes is indeed an old one. I
thought it was more of a myth than anything. However, it does have at
least some basis in truth. One of my closest female friends did have this
happen to them.

This friend of mine, whom I will Jane for ease of referance, lives alone.
She is a very sexual person. This isn't to say she's very promiscus. She
just loves expressing herself in everything she does, including anything
sexual. She's as open minded with sex as with anything else. So it's not
to say that anything bad against her.

One night, about a year ago now, I recieved phone call late at night. I
forget the pricise time, but it was probably around two in the morning. I
learned that my friend Jane had a predictiment, and needed some help. With
thoughts of all the horrible things that she could be talking about, I
rushed to her apartment.

It wasn't till I got there that she had told me her situation. Her and
her current boyfriend had been having problems at the time, and this had
been going on for a while. As such, she claimed she was "overcharged with
sexual energy" and needed a release. She had taken the first phalatic item
that came to her mind. A hot dog.

And, as true to the story, she had inadvertitly broken a piece off, which
was now "missing." She wanted to go to ER to have it removed. being one of
her closest friends (and one of the few who had a car, as she didn't own
one) she had me take her.

About 20 minutes after she was taken back, she came out, with nothing more
than a little bit of embarrassment.

I figured I might as well sned this in, so as you can keep up-to-date
about your articles. You article dates this origin to way before this
event, but doesn't have any proof that anything like this had ever
happened. I know that one person's story is as good as the next, but this
wasn't a rumor or casual story I heard. This actually happened to me.

I have a former co worker who believed this despite the proof to the contrary. I wonder if this message was written by her.

Comment: Regarding the hotdog masturbation story. One version of this is
from my home town, and I know the girl involved. This was a widespread
story for some time, beginning when we were in middle school. In this
version the girl, I probably shouldnt name her, while playing truth or
dare inserted a hotdog inside her. The hot dog broke and she panicked.
Afraid to tell her parents, the only person left at home was her brother
who had to retrieve it. I was not at the alleged gathering where this
happened, but I do know the young lady, and I always wanted to ask her if
it was true, but thought that it would be too rude. I wish I could either
confirm or deny this story, but I guess this is a mystery that will never
be solved.

Comment: Dear Snopes.com,
Your article saying that the gang initiation is false appears to be true.
People need to be warned!

***

Several teachers and I talked to one of the Village police officers at
Family Fair this afternoon, and he told us that this information is not a
hoax. We questioned him after another teacher sent this same email to the
entire campus today.

Comment: I really enjoy this website, but I am finding that I must have a
terrifically interesting life, because a couple of these netlore legends
actually happened while I was in attendance. I'm not saying that I was at
the origin of these legends, I'm just saying that sometimes these things
really do happen, and though they may seem horrible or embarrassing, they
happen again and again.
Take for instance the story on the High School Cofidential page
"Female student asks Biology teacher why semen tastes salty." In 1990, at
XXXXXX XXXXXXX High School, during Biology I,
seventh period, Mr. XXXXX XXXXX stood at the front of the class and told us
that the composition of the tail of a sperm sell was composed of long
chain sugars, and elaborated several other characteristics of the cell. A
female senior raised her hand and asked if he had said sugar, and he
answered yes he had. "Then why does it taste salty?" she asked, and ol'
Ray froze, mouth open, for about three seconds, during which the girl
realized what she had asked. She did not get up and run out of the room,
but she did cover her face with both hands. Only a few students caught
on, and began to giggle, but Mr. XXXXXX said in a very reasonable and frank
tone that it is a common misconception that sugar equals sweet and that
salt equals sour, citing several examples of long chain sugars and various
metal salts. Aside from the first few seconds where he was shocked, he
completely refused to acknowledge that there was anything even remotely
sexual about the question, just answered the science aspects of the
question. I was less than ten feet from the girl when she asked the
question. She kept her head down and stared at her desk for the remainder
of the period, and gathered her things a slouched out of the room when the
bell rang. Of course the story was all over the school the next day, but
as this girl was a popular student, it actually improved her reputation.

On the same page, there is a story about a girl that broke a hot dog off
inside herself. When I was nine years old, my older sister had a slumber
party at our house. The entire upper floor was placed off limits to me,
and I had to sleep on the sofa in the den. At a very early hour of the
next morning, I was awakened by a ruckus, and got up to see what was going
on. My mother was leaving with one of the girls from the party and my
father was calling the parents of the other girls. I asked him what was
going on, and he told me to shut up and go back to bed. My sister was
bawling and the other girls were gathering their stuff. I kept trying to
figure out what was going on. When my dad trooped out with two of the
girls that were sisters and lived a couple of doors down, I asked my
sister what was going on and she told me that the girls had been playing
truth or dare, and one of the girls had dared another girl to stick a hot
dog into her vagina. several plates of hot dogs, bags of chips and
bottles of soft drinks had been laid out on a table upstairs for the
girls. The girl had taken the dare, and broke it and part of it had
gotten lodged inside. They couldn't get it out, and called for my mother.
My mother, worried for the girl, had immediately put her in the car and
left for the hospital. I never saw the girl that gave the dare or the the
girl that took the dare again.

Comment: I have just read your article about the guy who put pencils up his nose
in a test and committed suicide. Well this story sounded familiar to me
and I couldn't quite place it. I mentioned it in passing to my stepdad and
he told me that indeed this story is true and happened to him at his high
school. In the same exam room as him someone did the same thing as
mentioned in the article. This took place somewhere in Northern Ireland.
What you do with this information is entirley up to you but I thought I
would just make a point.

I first tried using your information as an insect repellent. It failed miserably. Flies swarmed around it as they would around a pile of manure.

I then tried using your information as a paperweight. This didn't work either. It seems that your information carries no weight whatsoever.

I've since given your information to my neighbor. He was most grateful, since he has a new puppy.

Does this person think by saying it happend to their child that it will make people believe it. Either that or the daughter told her parent this to see how gullible her mom or dad really is. I like the all caps too. That's going to make me believe it really happend. Since we all know all caps equals truth. [Smile]

Ever notice how we always fall in love? We never climb gently in to love, or step lightly in to love. If love is such a good thing than why is it described as a fall.

Comment: well i don't know if you can use this or not seeing as my mom is
and her family are the only ones to know this, but back when the vietnam
war was going on and they were drafting people, (not women right) she got
a draft notice in the mail, her dad was outraged and they went to the
place to ask why she a girl was drafted, her name is sander, so i guess
they thought she was a boy, but when they got there they said she was
pretending to be sander to save her brother from being drafted, only she
had one brother who had already inlisted previously. they apoligized for
the mistake and as she was leaving my mom said they passed an 80yr old man
who also recieved a draft summons. i guess thats military intellenge for
you. hahah if you can use it feel free, but i have no proof of this only
my moms word, and i know she wouldnt lie about this. it is way to bizarre,
and i love her, but she's not that bright to make it up. thank you.

I love you mummy, but you're an idiot.

How sweet.
