Debunked Rumor: Caitlyn Jenner will not be on the new $10 bill. We do expect a woman’s likeness to replace Alexander Hamilton’s at some point in the near future. However, at this moment the Treasury Department has not officially settled on which woman will appear on the bill.
We hate to type this, but apparently some people feel that there is resemblance between Caitlyn Jenner and US Treasury Secretary Rosa “Rosie” Rios. Rios’ image is often seen in association with the story, causing confusion among some.
US Treasury Secretary Rosa “Rosie” Rios. Do you see a resemblance?
The idea to place a woman on the currency is so popular, there is also brewing momentum for a change to other money as well. Still, you can feel confident that the new person on the bill will be deceased, and Jenner is currently alive. Maybe some day.
Debunked Rumor: According to NASA, the world is not ending in September 2015. According to the sometimes-reliable Internet, there was supposed to be a huge unnamed asteroid on a collision course with the Gulf of Mexico, set to hit in September 2015.
Evidently this is purely a hoax with no scientific basis. Of course the world could end for some different reason at any moment so it’s always a good idea to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Had the fictional asteroid been real, its impact might have caused huge tidal waves that would have flooded and destroyed all of the US, Mexico and South America, leaving Canada fairly damp.
Debunked Rumor: NFL Hall of Famer Warren Sapp was NOT arrested for prostitution on the weekend of The Super Bowl in Arizona. Instead, he was arrested for suspicion of soliciting prostitution – a big difference.
Many sports fans will recall that Sapp filed for bankruptcy in 2012. Although we don’t have the details on his financial status, he had been gainfully employed by the NFL Network since 2008. So the rumor that he was receiving money for sex to pay his debts appears to be totally false.
Sapp was also charged with two counts of assault after a disagreement with alleged escorts erupted in his hotel room.
As you know, we stick to the facts here, so we won’t speculate any further than to say we’re sure he’ll land on his feet
Debunked Rumor: The Walt Disney Company did NOT file suit to have Pluto reinstated as a planet.
Some of us grew up believing that there were nine planets in our solar system. In 2006 the International Astronomical Union made a ruling that disqualified Pluto.
Of course, Pluto is the name of Mickey Mouses’s faithful canine companion. Some people thought that removing Pluto’s planetary title diminished the value of the Disney character.
Further fueling the rumor was the fact that Pluto was reclassified as a “dwarf planet.” This led to speculation that there was some sort of settlement that somehow promoted the seven dwarves of Snow White fame.
Now, we aren’t privy to any closed door meetings that may have been held, but all of the research we have conducted indicates that this whole situation was simply one coincidence after another.
