John Stossel played "Is It Real or Fake?" with Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Gretchen Carlson this morning on Fox and Friends. For instance, did the government really spend $35,000 on a library book dispensing machine, or did John make that one up?

Here are the other four spending examples:

$686,000 to study

"World of Warcraft" gamers and Etsy users

$100,000 to test water pressure levels in NYC public housing

$2.3 million to build a pedestrian walkway under I-5 in California

$7 million to research a more "natural" rubber to use in tires

Watch the video, and see you how you did!
