Readers of Snopes send in some very good questions, including the following:

A friend of mine asked me if I’ve ever hear of invisible witches or ghosts that suck the blood out of a person’s arm while they are sleeping. Apparently, she saw “marks” on her boyfriend’s arm and this was the story that he told her.

Is it true that a girl cannot get pregnant if her mate smokes the seeds of marijuana when he smokes marijuana, please tell me if this is true because a lot of people tell me it is true and a lot of people tell me it’s not and I don’t know whaether to believe it or notbecause this town lies a lot. thanks.

can you tell me how i would analyze the effect each statistic has on the world.

I think that last one is quite profound. I’d like to know that, too. ;>
