    " Telephone" Game

    It's kinda like the "telephone game." Did anyone ever play that growing up? It's where you get a bunch of people in a circle, you say one sentence and whisper it as quick as you can to the next person. Sense it is said so quick, a lot of people get confused and misunderstand what...

    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!

    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.

    When you hear a rumor,

    and before you spread it, seriously consider the source of that rumor, before you start spreading it yourself. If everybody uses their common sense rumors wouldn't start if that person has thier mouth open every 2 seconds. Ignore the rumor. Bad source,

    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!

    Please Don't Make It Worse!

    Our ailing economy has resulted in so many losing their jobs and many more working with the daily threat of job loss.  I fall into the latter category for the time being.  This has created a work environment over the last 4 years of paranoia, stress, and rampant rumors.  I've...

    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...
