  1. This just in and it isn’t a load of hooey. The maple festival being in full swing here in new England was marred by the sudden death of some tree tappers. Apparently they overlooked some normally tapped trees which when left untapped, builds up pressure. The explosions were heard as far away as Boston, little was found of the men’s remains. Next time your having a pancake remember people have died to bring you that syrup.

  2. Snopes.com can be an interesting fact-check site. They’ll sometimes track a rumor to its first appearance and that can be years ago. We keep falling for the same story over and over. I guess it shows how mysterious science is to most of us.
