Letter Home

The following is a letter written to her parents while she is away at college.

Dear Mom and Dad,

I am sorry it has taken me this long to write you, but I will update you on all the latest activities happening in my life.

You are not to read any further unless you are sitting down, OK? Are you sitting? Things are going pretty good now. The skull fracture and concussion I got jumping out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire are almost healed. I did have to spend two weeks in the hospital and now my sight is almost back to normal and I only get the violently ill headaches once a day.

Since the dorm was destroyed I moved into an apartment with a gas station attendant who lives nearby. We are hoping to get married soon! Although we don't have the exact date picked out, we would like it to be before my pregnancy begins to show. He is of a different race and religion than ours, but I'm sure you will love him as much as I do.

Now here's the good news. There was no dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull fracture and I was not in the hospital. I am not pregnant, I'm not engaged and to be honest, there isn't even a boyfriend in my life. However, I am getting a D in French and an F in Chemistry and I wanted you to see these grades in proper prospective.

Love,
Your daughter

Believe it or not? Was this letter really written or all we all suckers who believe everything we read? Take our poll and see what other think.

Find out what else is worth believing or not and click here. Or maybe you have your own story to tell us.

Last weeks story, Cheese Chase, about those crazy Brits who chase cheese down a dangerously steep hill had a lot of you thinking it was true. I don't know for a fact if it is true or not. Every story I've read about this tradition is the same one and they all say it really happens. You can either head to England yourself to find out or decide for yourself if it's true or not.

Here are last weeks poll results:

Believe It or Not?

Yes: 85 percent
No: 4 percent
I don't know: 9 percent

Global warming will raise the ocean and bodies of waters. The cities will be flooded, and then frozen over. Someone goes outside, they freeze to death. The remaining survivors will die of starvation or freeze to death.

In my opinion, I see four most likely possibilities.  >>  Nuclear War/World Wars. >> The universe practically imploding and the sun burning us into oblivion or even another planet/meteorite slamming into us, destroying us entirely. >> Self-destructive tendencies of our own species, either accidentally or purposefully. >> Trump. Which could be the matchstick to the flame of at least two other things on this list.

I think it's kinda sad that there even actually exist debates where people argue whether someone else's identity is 'legitimate' or not. You know who knows that? The person who identifies as bisexual (or whatever else). Not me, not you, not their parents, not your parents, and no, not any religion. Them. Only them. No one else. That's it. But it is nice to see people expressing support. I'll join in and say, for all the bisexuals out there, be who you are. Let not any one person's judgment distract you from what your true feelings are. “If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” ―  Paulo Coelho ,  The Alchemist

You cannot describe color to a blind person. But they also see things that you can't that they cannot describe to you. I have a friend, Joseph, who's been blind since birth. He says it looks sort of like nothing and everything at once, and that little dots malt into one big dot. He also doesn't quite grasp the concept of "dark" and "light" but he can sense when a light is on vs off. I have a friend who's been blind since she was eight (grenade accident) who says it's like a mix of every color, but it's not quite black or white. And there's no one color she can name of it. But when there's a noise, the "blanket" shifts around where the noise came from, like something's different but you can't tell what.

In a couple billion years, the sun will die and implode, taking Mercury, Venus, Earth, and possibly Mars with it. Unless the silent death flares get us first. They could happen at any moment with no warning, you know. Scratch that. Trump's gonna kill us.
