    When you hear a rumor,

    Sidewalk

    In some African countries they have an expression for it: 'radio trottoir', radio sidewalk. The street as a source of news is very, very powerful. The news often is not to be trusted at all but the spicy content makes up for that. We simply adore gossip. It is within the human...

    Mouth To Ear

    Ooooooh yes.  Rumors and viruses have a great deal on common.  The contagion starts in the infected person's mouth; said person promptly puts it into the next unfortunate's ear.  The virus then moves to the second person's mouth...and the vicious cycle continues.

    Rumours Can Destroy People...

    I never gossip or start rumours. Too many have been propagated about me in life, so why in hell would I cause pain to others? It's just Wrong!

    there are those shallow,

    lifeless people, who take it upon themselves to begin hurtful false rumours about those they do not like for whatever reason. These people are usually the ones who the rumour they spread relates to most, or they are trying to distract you from the fatal flaw in their personality...

    My Motto

    If you don't hear a good rumor by 9:00, start one. It's always entertaining to see what they are when they finally get back to you. Cheers all!
