I hope this is the right category for this. . Anyway I was at The Olive Garden this weekend and the waitress, in the middle of our meal says, "Sorry I'm so weird tonight, I just found out Ben Savage died" and she seemed honestly upset. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It took all my willpower not to burst out laughing at her.

Not only did she fall for it, she was actually pretty late to the game. Unless she was messing with us, which I doubt.

P.S. He is still alive, right? He wasn't in an accident since this hoax?

Yep you're right, kudos to you for not laughing in her face.

I'd never heard the rumor.

But I do wonder how people can fall for these things. If no news item is carrying it, and if googling "Ben savage dead" results in the snopes page as well as other pages that indicate it's a rumor, (but absolutely no news articles) how can you possibly believe it? That's the herd mentality for you.
