HoaxI hate falling for a hoax.

Earlier today I was glancing at a site with the headline "Baroness Thatcher dies, 79". There was a picture of Margaret Thatcher and the first lines read "Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister, died today aged 79. 'Maggie' has apparently been in failing health for some time now."

It appeared to be the home page for the Guardian News with the URL http://www.guardiannews.co.uk/, which seemed pretty legitimate to me. I went about adding a note about Thatcher's death to this page and I updated the Dead Pool page with this "breaking" news. I went to a few of my favourite news sites to read more about this significant death but found nothing. It was a hoax and I fell for it hook, line and sinker. I hate it when that happens.
