My query started with a simple google search, but google decided to throw me a curve ball.
Wait... Where I now live is a myth? How is that possible? Now I have even more questions.
Whenever I have a question about anything, I ALWAYS turn to Yahoo! Answers (because, you know, it's grounded in statistical evidence), and there is inevitably someone else that has already asked the question.
Ok... so maybe Yahoo! Answers isn't the best place to get your factual information from. Still, there are an awful lot of search results that show up. The #1 search result takes you to an interesting write up that explains how it could be possible that ND is a myth.

No matter how this lie was spread, it’s undeniably one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.

So, we gotta ask:
