Project Idea: Urban Legends

Urban legends are the mythology of the modern age, and sites like Snopes.com provide a great research tool for finding and studying the most popular tales.

Research Tip: For general background, read the Wikipedia article on Urban Legends. Then, to find stories, Snopes is always the best place to start, zooming in on the specific category you will focus on: Cars - College - Crime - Food - Horrors - Love - Medical - Sports - Weddings, and many more general categories, plus subcategories for all those general categories too! There are probably thousands of legends now that the Snopes.com team has researched and documented over the years.
