There's always some sort of garbage that ends up in my email inbox, and I am not only talking about spam.
There's always something like "forward this to 10 people and Bill Gates will send you $100"...or "Don't buy any gasoline from Exxon and Mobil and prices will drop" sitting in my mailbox.
For the record, if I get something I already haven't seen 20 times, I check it out on www.snopes.com - an excellent resource for this stuff.
Anyway, PC World put together a list of the 25 greatest Web hoaxes of all time. I found it amusing to revisit some of these.
