JGB created the topic: Information to the Public
Reading Mossie and Neil's comments regarding discussions on radio of late, is it not amazing some of the information that is fed to the public ad they beleive it without no thought of questioning it.

I have had a few instances lately where I have been listenig to a discussion and the most outrageous information is given and everyone else is in a agreement. I just get up with a sarcastic remark and move on. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Some of the better stories I have heard of late are:

A bloke diving in Mozambique and a whale shark with an eye bigger then him surfaced next to him. MMMM, last I check the living species with the largest eye is the giant squid and its eye is ± 25cm.

A story of green mamba beig fished out of a swimming pool in Ellisras. Are you sure is was a green mamba. Oh yes it was a green mamba for sure. WOW, that is amazing it is a great scientific discovery as green mambas are confined to the east of the counttry. Oh, well then maybe it was a boomslang then....... ja well ok, i think maybe it was a rubber snake.

And my prior birding days. Wow now that is a great sighting of a very rare bird in the Kruger as he peers through the binoculars. What is it? A Buchells Coucal. Ok, I accept that it is rare till I get home and read through a bird ID book - Staus: Common resident. Mmm, ok....

But the best was an e-mail that was circulated regarding the pumps at service stations and how there is a return line to the tanks for excess product that has already gone through the meter, so the consumer pays for product they do not receive (an absolute load of rubbish). Mmmm, I have been working in the fuel industry doing such installations for over 10 years and people still wanted to argue the fact with me because of what they read on an e-mail (I suppose I am part of the conspiricy). <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->
