Stupid hoaxes - or just stupid people?

On the BBC "Flog it" programme, I have just seen the upteenth Bible or Prayer Book in a cigarette tin, with a bullet embedded in it, which reputedly saved the life of the soldier who had it in his breast pocket.

My mother had one of these, which she said saved the life of her Uncle Fred during WW1.

I simply don't believe these stories; I reckon bored squaddies fired at tins set up in the trenches, with an extra layer of something in between, and sold them.

Here's what can happen when people believe this stuff BANG

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

H. L. Mencken 1880 - 1956

Some may not like his views, but what a prediction!
