Have you gotten the e-mail about the Costa Ricans hauling off sea turtle eggs by the sackful?
Or the one that warns the use of microwaved water will kill plants (and therefore is likely to harm you)?
I’ve posted on this subject before on this blog, but it seemed like an appropriate topic for our Monday “current events” post at Inkwell Inspirations.

As I reviewed some of the fact-checking, myth-busting sites I share at the end of the post, I was astonished by the number of e-mails I’ve received in the last two weeks (not counting the election-inspired garbage) that popped up as hoaxes, frauds, misrepresentations, Photoshop tricks, and so forth.
Be a fact checker!
