Oh I'm SO embarrassed to admit this one but I read something recently about Vikings in America and forgot to check the source. Yk, fundamental rule number one and all that? Well I learnt my lesson.
I haven't, I'm naturally extremely cynical and distrustful so am unlikely to believe anything that sounds too good to be true or to fall for the kind of "share this or FB will steal your soul" type hoax. Although this means I've never been hoaxed, the flipside is I've missed out on things that were true and I might have enjoyed....
I have maybe fallen for 2-3 big ones, but I really now look into the info, and make sure I don't get caught again....Some are very 'smart', and it can at times be hard to see if it is a hoax.

I will say I HATE getting caught by a hoax.
Makes me see red.!!!
Maybe once I think
No, I havent, though strictly not true as have believed something that was a hoax!
