The False Prophet

Most Likely To Appear: When trying to prove a point (read: stunt) about his knowledge of the '96 World Series championship Yankees squad

Every now and again you'll read something in a thread and Google it to see if it's true. The amount of knowledge that gets dropped in any given thread is crazy. You learn something new every time, which you can, in turn, use in causal conversations and look a lot smarter than you actually are. Sometimes, however, you might find that certain nuggets of wisdom are false. Most of the time you can trace it back to the same few people who are known to throw out weird "factoids" that seem a little too good to be true. Thread trolling is a serious offense and these people are the worst offenders.
