(1) It was something completely ridiculous. So, no, probably not true and you could probably reason that out for yourself
(2) Why not look it up for yourself?
If you stop and go "Man, that's messed up!" for long enough to want to post a meme making a outlandish claim - why not take the time to actually find out more details! Maybe it *is* true, and then you could use the source material to shut down the arguments of your disbelieving friends.
Now, I would say that this is a call for rational thought process, or doing your research.
But that's not what's on my mind today. My thoughts have turned to What outlandish stories can you make up about your fellow competitors!! What have they been doing that the world needs to know about? ;)
One thing I know they haven't been doing is "submitting their entries". But fortunately, they have until Monday! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/811500.html
There is also the Home Game/Killing Floor (The Killing Game?) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/811580.html
and a Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/811782.html if you still need to figure things out!
