When I first went to snopes, I naively thought that their 'gruesome image' warning just meant something like a bit of blood, so I gave no mind to it. So I ended up looking at a decapitation. Now I know better. Now when I come across one of those stories, I just put my hands up in the middle of the screen so that I can still read the story attached without seeing the images, unless my morbid curiosity gets the best of me sometimes. But if it's a fake photo, I do look so I can see what photoshop or make-up techniques were used.
