Description: -- Did a college student really leave a suicide note reading, "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the light?" to her roommate?
-- Did a sleeping woman really receive a lick on the hand from what she thought was her dog -- only to find the dog butchered the next morning next to a note that read, "Humans can lick, too"?
-- Did a traveling salesman really wake up in the morning in his hotel bathtub to find that one of his kidneys had been stolen?
-- Can excessive use of cell phones really cause brain tumors?

Some stories are so good, we think they ought to be true, even if they aren't. Urban legends, or myths, passed on at office water coolers, over the Internet, in bars and coffeehouses, are stories that sound almost if not completely plausible. And the tellers always swear these tales have been passed on by a friend of a friend or someone's cousin -- people who simply wouldn't lie about things like that!

CIG to Urban Legends gathers together the most pervasive, unusual, fascinating, and grotesque of these cautionary, often violent folktales that are the 21"st"-century equivalent of myths, fairy tales, and fables. CIG to Urban Legends explains their historic and psychological underpinnings and showing how, thanks to the Internet, they can travel at the speed of light and mutate just as quickly.
-- Is Paul dead? How about the Beaver?
-- The LSD-impregnated kiddy tattoo conspiracy
-- Albino alligators in the sewers of New York
-- The reason why there's no Nobel Prize for mathematics
-- Satanic emblems and nonexistent cults

And much, much more!
