Snopes.com is the site that you go to when you need to prove your friends wrong at the bar. It’s a reference site for rumors and urban legends, and they tell you which stories are true and which ones are bullshit. I use Snopes about once or twice a week to settle an argument. The other day my coworkers were talking about how the government made Kentucky Fried Chicken change its name to KFC because they don’t use real chicken in their products. I told them they were stupid for believing that, and I quickly used Snopes to debunk their theory. They felt dumb, I felt validated, and all was right with the world once more. The Internet isn’t all rumors and lies. There are still some sites out there that tell the truth. Snopes.com is a site that you can trust. Check it out the next time you need to win a bar argument or if you have some spare time to kill. It’s also a great way to verify if Justin Bieber really died in a fiery car crash.
