And here's a link to the updated newspaper article which reports that the bottle cap collection is a hoax: www.roanoke-chowan newsherald.com/201 3/08/04/caps-for-c hemo-2  (Aug 6, 2013 | post #151)

caps for chemo

Pattie, I contacted the hospital, North Carolina Children's Hospital, and their spokesperson says this about bottle cap collection: "sadly, there is no truth to the program." View it yourself at their Facebook Page Here > www.facebook.com/n cchildrenshospital /posts/10151563050 042361 NCCH contacted the newspaper, The (Roanake-Chowan) News-Herald, which is supposed to do a follow-up correction tomorrow, 8/3/2013. As always, COLLECTING the caps (or aluminum pull tabs) does not prove the program is true, because there is lots of collecting going on. But no one is getting medical treatment from collecting them. (Exception: Ronald McDonald House does collect pull tabs. A million of them is worth about $366 and would fill zip lock bags that would also cost about 366 dollars)  (Aug 2, 2013 | post #150)

I never said the aluminum can tab collection was false, only that it was very low value. The Ronald McDonald House does accept tabs, and they recycle at about $1 for every 3,000 TABS. However, 3,000 CANS would be 100 pounds, worth about $60. So collect the cans if you can! If you're in a "can deposit" state, collect the tabs! But the tabs aren't worth much unless you can collect hundreds of thousands of them. Everything you'd like to know about aluminum can tabs is answered here: http://cubmaster52 6.angelfire.com The "bottle caps for chemo" is the fairy tale I was referring to. It may be impossible to find a recycler who will even accept them.  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #145)

Riley Children's Hospital said on their Facebook page on February 29, 2012 "That is actually a scam.

Why is it so hard for disabled men to find dates in Jacks...

Perhaps it's not that Greg is disabled, but that he's creepy. Here's a sample of his posts, by title: young white guy black girl dating - "I love younger black women. If your interested you can e-mail me your photos to [email protected] hoo.com" Looking to bang a mans wife - "Are there any men in the Jackson, Mississippi area who want another man to bang there wife." Looking to date younger black or white women. - "I am looking for younger black or white women to date in the central Mississippi area. I am a christian and believe in God. You must do the same." Jackson, Mississippi gay dating - "I am a 50 year old bi male who is looking for a gay boyfriend in the Jackson, Mississippi area." Gee, Greg, pick a team already!  (Jun 9, 2012 | post #2)

Dee, I am delighted that there is still someone with faith in humanity, optimism that overcomes reason, and someone with pure positive happiness. All that aside, please detail the organization which finances this effort, then end-user of the bottle caps, the destination of your wretched refuse. If bottle caps are the currency of your generosity, who is the "bank?" Don't keep it to yourself, the world wants to know! Details and website link will be appreciated. And the American Cancer Society would love to be corrected, as they say it is rubbish. And please don't say "I'll be right back with the answer," that's been done about 12 times here already.  (Apr 3, 2012 | post #137)

I can't find a thing on this story since September 2011. Hopefully it's still waiting trial. What a bizarre and scary story it was. http://www.wlbt.co m/story/15385714/a ttempted-kidnappin g-in-castlewoods-a rea He had been only "charged " with sex crimes, so without a conviction on them, he's not going to be on the SOR.  (Mar 5, 2012 | post #2)

Cyndy, the American Cancer Society says that this is a hoax. http://www.cancer. org/AboutUs/HowWeH elpYou/bottlecapsf orchemo Snopes says that it's a hoax. http://www.snopes. com/business/redee m/bottlecap.asp My research shows no ill person who ever received actual benefit from bottle tops or aluminum can tabs. Ask yourself 2 questions: ¤ Where do the caps end up? ¤ Not "where are they collected?" because they are collected from beauty shops to doctor's offices. Where do they end up and how can I contact them to confirm that it is true? ¤ What is the organization that pledges the financial aid? ¤ Which recycler or hospital? How can I contact them to confirm that it is true? And you work at a hospital? People think that's where one sends the caps to! Trust me, if you chase the path of the caps, you will ever find the end! People eventually throw them away. Please read the Cancer Society's link to remove all doubt. I mean, they should be the final word in this.  (Dec 28, 2011 | post #132)

Elaine, the Ronald McDonald House started accepting aluminum pull tabs because many people who heard rumors collected vast amounts of tabs but couldn't find a hospital that would accept them for kidney dialysis or chemotherapy. Yes, Ronald McDonald House does accept them, but do the math: It takes about 1,509 beverage pull tabs to make one pound. Aluminum cans and tabs are worth about 78¢ per pound. Thus 1,509 tabs are worth 78¢. Each tab is worth 0.05¢ each (5 hundredths of a cent). It would take 1,925 tabs to make one dollar. It takes about 30 beverage cans to make one pound. At 78¢ per pound, each can is worth 2.6¢ each. The same 1,509 cans those tabs came from would be worth $39.44. It would take only 38 cans to make one dollar. Thus the cans are worth 50 times what the tabs are worth. So why collect pull tabs? Collect the cans ! ! Tabs are not _totally_ worthless, but pretty close to it! It is still a hoax when someone claims that tabs have special value, are accepted for kidney dialysis, are accepted for chemo treatments, are accepted at hospitals, are worth $50/$75/$100 per gallon jug, or have more value than cans.  (Sep 27, 2011 | post #128)

It's obvious the child was killed. It's obvious Casey lied and invented people and jobs. There's no other explanation than Casey killed the child.  (Jul 4, 2011 | post #1)

The whole "beating " story is a hoax. The Free Republic got the story from thehayride.com, which got it from an anonymous posting on an Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) sports message board ( http://nafoom.yuk u.com/topic/39495/ This-will-bring-a- tear-to-your-eye ) You don't want to take my word for it? The State Captain of the Patriot Guard Riders of Mississippi says it was a hoax here: http://thundersled s.com/news/ssgtjas onrogers.html And the Hater-in-Chief Phelps is right, every time someone repeats this stupid rumor, those inbreds get the free publicity they seek. And here's some more publicity: Fred Phelps hit his wife and beat his children until they bled: http://articles.cn n.com/2011-03-16/u s/westboro.nate.ph elps_1_fred-phelps -gay-rights-shirle y-phelps-roper  (May 29, 2011 | post #10)

The whole "beating " story is a hoax. All "news" stories about a Westboro Baptist Church member being beaten in Mississippi, originated from an anonymous posting on an Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) sports message board. [http://nafoom.yuk u.com/topic/39495/ This-will-bring-a- tear-to-your-eye] Cave's blog has comments turned off. I guess his mind is made up, don't confuse him with the fact that it's a hoax. And yes, I live in Brandon.  (May 1, 2011 | post #2)
