There is a mesentery in your body, but we've known about it for a long time (since at least 1885) and it is not classified as an organ just yet. Whether it should be classified as such is currently a debate in scientific communities.
Much like the kerfuffle over similar headlines in 2014, this story is fake. There is a proposed bill that talks about employees' rights to diconnect, but it doesn't mention email.
Countless tweets and local media reports confirm: Hollyweed was real.
LA is joining other cities across America in paying for legal council of undocumented immigrants facing deportation. Los Angeles has set aside $10 million.
Versions of this story have been floating around since 2014, as Snopes reports, but none of them have any truth to them.
The newspaper later apologized and tweeted the correct cover, but not before getting roasted on Twitter.
The rumor started when a sign for the lanes popped up on a blog, Snopes reports, but it was photoshopped.
