….or, well, the power of urban legends.

….Blah blah pop-psychologycakes about the concept and nature of urban legends. I’ve deleted this post of mine for the moment and will put it back up when I have the time to rewrite it properly. To sum things up: an urban legend is a powerful thing because it speaks directly to your emotions – and very often to your fears -, which is why it took me so long to realize that the Progesterex thing had to be a hoax.

Oh, and for more information on urban legends, I recommend the webpage snopes.com! Very interesting reading.
