Hoaxes and Urban Legends

I wish people would send me messages asking "Is this for real?". But how often does that ever happen, NEVER. No, what I get instead are all the forwards from the suckers who are too lazy, gullible or ignorant to find out the truth. I try to remain polite and usually my replies contain a shortened version of the facts, with links to more information, and an invitation to send emails only to me first. I offer to check it and let them know if it is legit. So for all of you out there that want to know the truth, or just have the same problem as me, here are the resources I use:

http://urbanlegends.about.com

http://www.truthorfiction.com

http://www.breakthechain.org

http://www.hoax-slayer.com

So, where do you go to get your information on Potential Hoaxes and Urban Legends? Know any other good places to check the facts? Leave them in the comments.
