I read an article in the paper today about a couple who put what they believed to be a germ infested pile of cash in the microwave to disinfect it only to see the whole wad go up in flames. The writer, believing this to be an urban legend, tried the experiment herself.
Which got me to thinking about some of the stupid shit I've tried, "because I heard it was true".
* As much as I wanted to be scared, no gruesomly murdered pre-teen girl appeared in my mirror-no matter how many times I chanted her bloody name.
* Somwhere in the garage I still have a can of coke with a nail in it.
* Despite his best efforts Harry Potter has not turned me into a satanist.
* I have yet to go blind.
So, what stupid rumors have you tested, just to see of it works?
