If they're making them up then all the rest must be suspect.

One of the longest place names in the world. Made up to attract tourists: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. The villagers call it Llanfairpwll. Even shorter is Llanfair.

Just something about ATS or forums in general that I've wanted to ask. It may fit in here since I can't start a thread.
When someone says do your own research concerning the topic being discussed, what exactly does that mean? What does
that involve? How does one do the research? Or how did you do your research?
For me it all ends at Google, and I rarely have to go beyond the results found on Wikipedia and yahoo answers search results.
For example, if somebody posts a thread here about your typical ATS topic that you find hard to believe and they tell you,
don't take my word for it, do your own research. Where do you start? Maybe you've never researched anything before or perhaps you have but the topic is something you've never heard of or it's in an area you have no experience. What do you do?
