Back when the world was new and this blog was as well, we had a tradition. On Saturdays, there would be an open thread -- once a month, that thread would serve as a call for myths that need answering. Well, the open threads never got much traffic -- almost as if there wasn't a… Continue reading Open Myth Call: June 1-7
We're continuing the monthly tradition by soliciting the myths you want to see written. It's a lot like how on Mythbusters they solicit fan requests on the site, only on Mythbusters they solicit urban legends that the fans want to watch the team debunk while blowing things up and possibly being injured in the process,… Continue reading Weekends: The October Myth Call!
