Tampons with vodka, a movie with the murders and drugs from faeces. Four urban legends that have done a rustle in the media
Feykovye all sorts of news, urban legends and inflated out of the blue scandals began that same magic rod, peck, not only impressionable housewives, but also quite a respected publication, and even law enforcement agencies to which from time to time. Today, in order to dilute the mass hysteria in the media, do not even need desperately shouting "Wolf!", Enough to whisper about a couple of drunk raccoons, gophers, or zombie. In any case, what is dumber than the original bike, especially in a large puddle then have to take those seriously raised because of her tantrum.
Today we have prepared for you four of the most stupid, absurd and abnormal urban legends, of which at one time seriously began to parents, journalists, and sometimes even the people in uniform.
How to get drunk?
a rumor that a young American offenders have found a new way to quietly pumped with alcohol and deceive the police Breathalyzer, soon grew so much that went for a walk wherever possible, from the nightmares of parents, and ending talk show on national television.
The story itself was the fact that some abstract teenagers launched in its midst a new interesting chip. Ostensibly, instead of just drinking vodka like a normal white man, modern dandies and ladies have found a new purpose for the feminine hygiene tampons, began to infiltrate their alcohol and thrust at various anatomical openings available depending on gender "patient." It has been argued that this unusual procedure allows you to fool the highway patrol and protect the fragile psyche of the parents is quite obvious smell of fume and more rapid intoxication and absence of vomiting resulted in hundreds of teenage deaths from alcohol poisoning.
It goes without saying that most of the rumor scared vigilant American mothers, and is not known how many poor boys and girls had the opportunity to move the house humiliating "search backyard." That less, employees of medical institutions said that, in spite of these same newspaper, "hundreds of deaths", American doctors have never ever pumped drunk teens with vodka swab the anus.
Movies are not for everyone
Another urban legend that has submitted a real panic in the media, have become so-called "snuff movies" - porn with real torture and murder that mysterious criminals specifically removed from the participation of the poor kidnapped girls and sell connoisseur of the genre.
Incidentally, the wave of panic, which naturally grow legs of a couple of highly successful Hollywood horror movies, was so overwhelming that the FBI even had to carry out a separate investigation. In other matters, experts have concluded that in contrast to the most notorious "CPU on the LAN", the demand for "kinishko with krovyashkoy" is completely absent in the black market, making great effort to the production of the "product" is simply not feasible.
"Hey, man, do you want a bit of feces?"
But it is not just unwarranted panic and a real top of idiocy that successfully mowed down everyone: parents' committees and major publications, including "WashingtonPost", and even the sheriff's department one American county.
It all started with the article in a newspaper some yellow, who claimed that youth has a new popular drugs - "Jenkem", which teens "bodyazhat" straight from its own excrement. If we believe the short article, inhalation "digested human faeces" causes vivid hallucinations and highly addictive. I do not know, than to breathe in people who earnestly declared public war "fecal brothels and drug addicts", but it was not a month as long as the authorities have officially confirmed that it was a fake, and dependence on excrement young Americans are not yet threatened .
The brilliant marketing ploy
I do not know, there was whether the bike itself, or it put pen talented marketers employed by competitors of popular supermarket chains, "the Walmart", but revenue "giant Soul Plane discount" fell significantly after the press began to appear that youth gangs have come up with a new rite of passage for beginners.
According to legend, in order to become full members of the gang, young gangsters looked for in supermarkets barrette women, the elderly and children and executed their shots to the head. Before the panic subsided, operators 911 throughout the US and Canada a few months had to be responsible for tens of thousands of panic calls and politely explain to the frightened residents that "no, ma'am, it's only unverified rumors, yes, ma'am, you could easily go to Walmart for canned cat ".
