I like to find the truth about things. Myths, stories, urban legends especially. It's a hobby. I don't know why, I think it's because there are so many fantastic true stories and events in the world that it seems daft to let fake stuff slide.
So when I see things like the above, or people mindless parroting rubbish about the EU banning bendy bananas  or "the government" banning nursery rhymes  or the old favourite about councils replacing Christmas with "Winterval"  or the one about kids having to wear goggles to play conkers  I just get a bit of an urge to pontificate.
But, like you said, you don't have to read my posts, either, so no harm done, eh?
