You've got to love snopes.com. I've been accused of raining on several parades armed with evidence form that site. I love a good story as much or more than the next guy, but I want to separate truth from fiction.

I keep getting e-mails containing bogus tsunami pictures, and usually the snopes site has them listed. Makes the guy who send me the e-mail with "geez that wave must be 200 feet high" feel pretty sheepish.
