How I work – 94 – www.snopes.com / www.izitru.com

These days, we receive so many mails, some of them well meaning, but sometimes incredible. We need some means to verify whether the stories we get are really true. Snopes.com comes to the rescue in such situations. It is the definitive Internet reference source for urban legends, folklore, myths, rumors, and misinformation. Use the search box to locate your item of interest, or click the icons to browse the site by category. If you don’t find the story you are looking for, you can even submit a rumor on the site to find out whether it is true or not. Similarly, if you get a photograph which is difficult to believe, you can upload it on http://www.izitru.com and get an instant report on whether the photograph is an original or modified ! Both are very useful tools to satiate your curiosity and be a better informed citizen.
