This is the offending email of the week:
"Nothing important happened today."
—Diary entry by King George III on July 4, 1776
I call bullshit. George III was a raving lunatic and had his head in the sand when it came to dealing with the American colonies, but there is no evidence that he kept a diary --ever. Just because there was reference to this quote on the X-Files does not make it fact. Don't you think that more people would know about this ironic journal entry if it really happened?
And just for the record, George Washington did not chop down a cherry tree and confess to his father because he could not tell a lie. This was a story fabricated by Parson Weems. Sorry to burst your bubble.
