Thought I'd toss in a comment that is every bit as factual as most of what is contained in this thread.
1. The moon is made of green cheese.
2. The earth is flat and if you get too close to the edge, you'll fall off.
3. The government is here to help all of us.
4. Using ethanol is harmful to birds.
No need to verify these 4 items. All you have to do is to put them on the internet and then they MUST be true!
