I'd have to say either the stranger in the backseat of the car, or the telephone calls coming from upstairs. I like the scary ones, which seem to revolve around babysitters (bless um!) so things like that. Anything with a horror edge.

Seymour: That's the spirit.

The one on the London underground, where the girl gets on the subway late at night, and it's empty except for a creepy looking guy, and two guys with a girl sitting between them. So the girl avoids the creepy looking guy by sitting across from the group. She notices the girl in the middle keeps staring at her, really out of it. Then the creepy looking guy sits down next to her, and whispers 'if you know what's good for you, you'll get off at the next stop with me.'

For some reason, the girl chooses to get off with the creepy looking guy (I wouldn't), and the guy says he is a doctor and that the girl sitting between the two guys on the subway was dead and they were propping her up. They notify security/police, who stop the subway and catch the two murderers.

It's an absurdly silly urban legend when you logically think about it, but whoever wrote it wrote it well when I first read it (alone, late at night) and it creeped me out good.





Have you any idea how it feels to be a fembot living in a manbot's man-puter's world?

I'd have to say the one with the guy walking past someone with a Kleenex and pretending to sneeze as he walks past him and blows cyanide in his face and dies within 10 seconds.

The "Human can lick too" one is pretty amazing...and I think my favorites urban legends are the one about disney (found on snope), especially the REAL one, of the naked girl in the movie "The Rescuers"
Since I don't like to be scare, I don't like the horror one..even if I keep reading them all night long, here or there, and freaking out...

I have a ton, but probably either the Hook Man, the if your roommate dies in college you get all As one, Bloody Mary, and the Phantom Hitchhiker (in all its different variations lol)

what is your favorite urban legend?


   My favorite urban legend? OK I have two. I know you said one but I can't get it down to one. The first one is an urban legend from when I was a kid. It may be restricted to Oakland, CA AFAIK. It's about a guy who rapes children named "Billy Do". I guess it's more of a scary kids story like the Boogie Man. Apparently Bill or Mr. Do was some sort of criminal who got caught raping kids. He was sentenced to life in prison. However Billy Do escaped now he roams the streets of Oakland trying to rape kids. Kids would roam the streets late at night and say, "Billy Do is after you. Billy Do is after you." OK that's stretching it but it was a legend and I was in the city.

   The second urban legend is one being pimped by Alex Jones and it's about the Internet2. Alex Jones is saying the Internet2 will give ISPs the ability to force users to pay to visit certain sites. Why this is an urban legend is because ISPs and anyone can charge a per site fee. Anyone can allow only password access to their location on the Internet. FTP sites and online game servers do this all the time. Alex Jones apparently doesn't know Internet technology much. The Internet2 is nothing more than an update to the current Internet. That means the TCIP/IP we use today will have it's speed upgraded. The connections to utilize this new Internet protocol will be copper, wireless and fiber. Mostly it will be copper wire we used now but with fiber close by to boost speeds. Eventually it will be mostly fiber as it will be more cost effective and it probably uses less power. But that's just the method of delivery, the hardware. When the actual Internet2 is implemented, Alex Jones and most people won't even notice. But it is fun to see people totally freak out at this urban legend.
