More urban legends

Much pleasure is derived by the arrival of two e-mails in my inbox: the Smoking Gun one, detailing all sorts of strange legal goings-on, and the Snopes one, which helps confirm or debunk rumours and urban legends going around the Internet. For example, there is definitely a bug in Mappoint that creates a route between two towns in Norway that goes through 7 (!) countries. But while the Bill Gates photos are real, the idea that he was posing for Teen Beat is not (to be fair, the original blog entry sounds like the "Teen Beat" bit was just being snarky).
