One of my biggest pet peeves is receiving urban legends and hoaxes via email. My favorite site to use in researching such stories is Snopes.com.
Snopes has compiled it's "25 Hottest Urban Legends." According to the website, Barack Obama, cell phones, and missing child alerts are among the current hot topics.
