    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!

    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!

    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,
