YOU have to stay ALERT.
The internet is full of amazing, fascinating, incredible stuff. And that's the question for today: credible? Or incredible?
Watch your step. There are dragons in the world.
Here, for your contemplation, are three really interesting sites. For each site, the question is the same: What strikes you as odd about this web site? If you run across this site, what triggers you to dig a little more deeply into what's going on here?

|1. RYT Hospital A new hospital describes its services. |
Is this a real hospital? How can you tell one way or the other?
What tells you that it's real? Does anything make you suspicious?
|2. Ann Kirkpatrick runs for re-election. |
Does anything strike you as odd about this site?
What can you do to verify that it's an accurate site?
|3. Dihydrogen Monoxide Some chemical compounds are deadly. |

How would you know?
Please leave your analysis in the comments below. Don't just say "it's obviously bogus" or "it's obviously correct." Say WHY you think that, and what research steps you took to validate / invalidate the claims of the site.
And say what--if anything other than being on the "Search Challenge" page--led you to question its authority!
Search on... credibly!
