Interesting stuff.... some of them seem true as far as I can say...
That's actually immensely cool.
Number 49 is bollix.
and a lot of them are painfully obvious.
Some of those are really cute.
However I know the pig story is fake;
and so is the titanic story;
Is the bat one true? I've seen bats fly in all sorts of directions when leaving their caves.
No it isn't
More to the point.
Hair and fingernails do not continue to grow. As the skin dehydrated it contracts making the nails and hair appear longer. It's actually a part of the old vampire legends where people took the apparent growth of fingernails on exhumed corpses to be proof of the undead.
If it's true, then someone should tell Bruce Wayne. 41 sounds like nonsense as well.
9 and 42 are contradictory.
Haig died in his bed
and his 'orse has a leg up.
is it just me? or does anyone else love reading things like this - and test out things like chewing if your left handed on the left side of your mouth.
yyyepp it's right
I'll get on number 9 right right away! (I laugh a hell of a lot more than 15 times per day anyway.)
32 is BS. Hair and nails are not growing, body is just decaying/shrinking.
and I don't think the Titanic was the first to use SOS. edit: wait, I see .Andy pointed that out. Ta!
A few others didn't seem right but it's all in good fun.
TRUST there to be something about a kangaroo... i live with them, theyr not that interesting...
Nope – I'm a right-side chewing left-hander!
#39 is not exact... "Colgate" means nothing in spanish. If i want to say "go hang yourself" i say "cuelgate". But, that may be correct in Argentina... their spanish is a little twisted...
27 is a bit poorly worded and ought at least to have mentioned Reverand Spooner...
How many zeros does a googole have then (my math is terrible)
EDIT: Nevermind i figured it out
Beat me to it.
I love to see lists of "facts" when see how many are outdated and factually wrong.
whats the point of #2? If you don't know it, you will probably not live.
I think 2 is garbage as well. You will always be thirsty until you actually pass out from dehydration.
I was hospitalised for dehydration when I was (much ) younger and I was pretty thirsty then.
Some of these are pretty interesting... but I wouldn't be surprised if half of them were completely false.
#44 - I'm always hugely skeptical of "Women vs. Men facts" like this. It's easy for people to believe them, though, because it's totally meaningless. It's like claiming women tap their feet more, or men snap their fingers more. Your brain will automatically pull up an example to justify it, regardless of RL truth - "Oh yeah, like Jeff! He's a guy and he snaps his fingers a lot. Must be true."
How about we make #51 "People with drier eyes blink more."
#19 - a million things cause cells to die. Running, jumping, coughing, clapping, hugging. The fact might be true but it's also a bit misleading in the context.
I must admit, I was pretty stunned when I read this...
Who'd have thought?
OMG! I'm a left-side chewing left-hander. I could have sworn I chewed on the right-side until I grabbed some cashews.
i agree!! some of these facts are really interesting
I don't get how sneezing causes your brain cells to die off.
Isn't that bad then? I thought brain cells cannot be replaced? Or is that only nerve cells?
