Top 10 Internet Spoofs Of All Time
I love my friends, I really do, but sometimes, I wish they would just think a little before sending me chain emails about "The most destructive virus ever discovered" or "Bill Gate will send you 250$ if you forward this message to 25 friends". Please, if you are this kind of person, do everyone a favor and search Google to see if these emails are hoaxes or not before sending them over. You'll be doing everyone a favor and won't make a total ass of yourself in front of your techie friends in the process. Wired pubbed a nice little compilation of what they feel are the all-time popular net hoaxes going around the web.
"It must be true. I read it on the internet." Au contraire, mon frere. Internet hoaxes have been around for as long as the internet itself, and we never run out of people willing to fall for them."
