(What's the Story) Morning Glory

I spent a bit of time this morning surfing the Snopes website, after a colleague sent me yet another hoax/urban legend email (I can't believe how many people still forward these kinds of emails on without checking first!!). It's a great website if you're looking to waste a bit of time - there are lots of interesting stories compiled there. Each tale is identified as true, false, ambiguous or of indeterminate origin.

Some of the true stories are just incredible - a few that I found interesting (a couple of them quite grisly) are:

- Two men each lost an arm in a grisly tug-of-war contest
- A lawyer demonstrating the safety of windows in a skyscraper crashed through a pane and plunged to his death
- A cuckolded husband presented his wife with the head of her lover
- Tounge of frog
- Photos show a domestic cat sporting a "lion cut."

And have a look at the What's New page for some recent stories.
