We all have stories to tell, and they are interesting.
The stories on this site are true. As true as they can be, anyway. They happened to me or someone I know, were related to me second-hand by a reliable source, or I read about them in a reliable source.
Some names are omitted or changed to protect privacy, except those names in widely-known stories about widely-known people, or those who do not care that the world know their story.
Some stories are recent, some happened long ago–though if a story is true, it is usually timeless.
