Being a medicine doctor in Italy, I've heard more than once the three following urban legends (I do not know if they are restricted to Italy, or have a worldwide distribution):

1) A biker has an accident. The paramedics arrive with the ambulance, and when the helmet is removed, the head of the poor biker splits exactly in two parts;

2) Two lovers (not very young) remain interlaced during sexual intercourse, and must be brought "linked together" with an ambulance to the hospital;

3) A young man finds a beautiful girl, and after a night of love, the girl is gone and in the mirror is written with red lipstic: "Welcome in the world of Aids".
------
This last is a very old one: the first two are rather common!

You are right... Smile But probably it was the first urban legend I've heard in my life in the 80s, from a young woman who studied at the Uni! It's awasome to notice how these urban legends are told around by people who have some instructional basis and education!

I hear what you're saying. Around us it is common belief in schools that teachers can't apply plasters to cuts on children as it is evidence that they touched them. The Welsh Assembly had to write an official statement saying this was not true.

We have a site not too far from me
called booger holler where a young girl
was klled by a car.If you go there and stop at
the bottom of the hill and put your car in neutral
Your car will roll up the hill.And they say if you sprinkle
baby powder on the trunk of the car you will see hand print's
of the girl where she pushed the car up the hill.

Alligators (or crocodiles depending on the version) living in abundance in the sewer systems.

I've heard that all my life.

I've heard this too, does anyone know if there's any truth to it?

My third grade teacher, when I asked, said, "no". Don't know how legitimate or credible a source she is, but I'm inclined to agree with her.

I have it on "good" authority that there is no truth to the crocodile/sewer story - I wait to be proved wrong.

At every camp I attended as a boy, we were duly warned about the salt peter in the Caféteria food.

A friend told me a few weeks back that if a contact lens gets behind the eyeball the body will absorb it and pass it through the flesh until it finally exits the skin via a blister.

I volunteer as an EMT and number 1 is fairly common, although may not be exactly in half. That's why we call motor cycle helmets brain buckets.

Never had number 2 happen exactly like that but picked up a woman with a lost vibrator inside her. Since the only thing we pull out of there is babies we transported her and let the doctor figure it out.

I had a teacher that said chewing gum would make you go blind. She wore glasses so I thought she should know.

I've heard variations of this in a number of cities in Canada and the US. Always a guy who did it though Smile

So I heard this guy was in building X (the building changes with the city) on the 40th floor and was bragging about how the windows were shatterproof and he would run up to one and bounce off just to scare everyone. One day he tried that in front of some new interns and the window shattered outwards and he fell to his death.

It always sounds plausible because you name a building, say it happened about 5-10 years ago etc. That's how these urban legends seem to work. You're never really sure and you end up checking into it online..... just in case ....

I remember hearing the window story (a long time ago) and believing it...

Most of the urban legends that I hear the most are those horrible email "warnings" with the "man in the backseat" style motif. Usually, it's the old one that feeds on female paranoia that there's a man after them, like some stranger hiding under their cars at the gas station and slashing their heels or something. Though I've noticed in the past 5 years that these types of ULs have significantly decreased for whatever reason.


Men hiding in the backseat?

A favorite of kids near Baltimore was "Black Aggie." On a dare a college student accepted the challenge of sitting on the statues lap at midnight. He was found dead the next day in the arms of the statute.

At work some guys were recently discussing how Mr. Rogers was a military sniper before his career as Mr. Rogers, and that he always wore long sleeves to cover up the military sniper bad ass tattoos on his arms. I'd heard that before and knew it was an urban myth, and pointed them to snopes. Some of them really thought it was true.
