"Nothing is real."

A world-changing idea if there ever was one. Of course it's true, and I believe there's even a movie (Wag the dog?) which involves the faking of a war to take the public's attention off of the President.

Never trust what you read, double check it, do your homework, question it.

Just FYI, don't trust snopes blindly either, check out the references on their pages, because there is at least one page where, when you check the references, reveals that one particular article is itself is a hoax, placed there as a caution so people learn never to be too reliant on any one source, no matter how trusted.
