So I was noodling around the internet the other day – something I’m sure none of you ever do – when I stumbled across a site touting its list of 25 TRUE but unusual facts. One of those items caught my eye:
When Mahatma Gandhi died, an autopsy revealed that his small intestine contained five gold Krugerrands.
That struck me as so odd, I had to investigate further, so down the internet rabbit hole I went – again, something I’m sure none of you ever do. A short search took me to another website, debunking that so-called fact about Gandhi. As for that original website and its 25 TRUE items? As far as I’m concerned, all 25 items are bogus. Once I confirmed that one piece of information was a lie, the whole site was useless to me.
The take-away message? Be impeccable with your words and actions. After all, you wouldn’t want to tarnish your credibility. Just ask Lance or Manti. (Not a sports fan? Google those names and spend some time fiddling around on the internet. It’s okay. We all do it.)
