We've seen lots of sites devoted to dispelling hoaxes and myths rampant on the Internet, but none as comprehensive as The Museum of Hoaxes at http://www.museumofhoaxes.com. This site is nicely organized into centuries, half centuries, and shorter periods. It contains famous April Fools Day gags, latest hoaxes making news, hoax pictures including the famous one "reportedly" from atop the World Trade Center, and even a test to see how gullible you are. This one should definitely be on the list of required reading before you forward that next interesting - and so believable - anecdote. 03. THE FINAL CURTAIN. Speaking of hoaxes, the one at http://www.finalcurtain.com had a lot of folks fooled in 1998. We expectedpark-like theme cemeteries to "attract visitors beyond just the friends and families
of the deceased." The idea behind this venture was that death need not be boring and cemeteries should offer restaurants, museum gift shops, and custom-designed grave sites, such as the one with a 10'x10' dance floor and jukebox. There was even a time-share option under which the dearly departed's remains could be shipped from one Final Curtain cemetery toanother. It was all an elaborate hoax, but one that attracted widespread media
interest. 04. KBALERTZ. The free service at http://www.kbalertz.com allows you to select all software you are interested in keeping updated.
