I thought it was a great list, some pretty interesting stuff in there... Like the bowline knot thing. I don`t need to go out and buy handcuffs now because I`m armed with a shoestring and the bowline knot ;-). Also for whoever said that the F1 fact was wrong, it wasn`t... Well atleast not in 1999 when the article was written. Same thing for the most f*cks in a movie, but that has already been pointed out.

The article`s a pretentious POS, just like one would expect from Maxim. The best part is the moron`s sad attempts at (edgy?) humor. Like the anthrax one, or saying to poke a stick in your eye to remove "floaters", or feeding chocolate to a greyhound right after saying chocolate is poisonous to them, etc. ad nauseum. Christ I hate "men`s" magazines...they`re for and by just about the worst specimens of anything male.

Some cool stuff there. Noticed some big mistakes with the blackjack part though.

You don`t split aces to get rid of the 12... you do it because it gives you 2 hands both worth 11 [which is a very powerful hand in blackjack, because 4 of 13 cards give you a 21].

This part is terrible advice: "Split any other pair when the dealer has a visible 4, 5, 6, or 7. Reasoning: Never miss a chance to double your bet when the dealer’s likely to bust."

It depends on the specific pair that it is. But a dealer 7 is very different to a 4, 5 or 6. Full blackjack strategy can be found here:

Also the fastest production car is the Bugatti Veryon, not the MacLaren F1.

As for the Dead Mans Hand in poker... 2 black aces and 2 black 8s... the kicker card was unknown.

What is the Dead Man`s Hand?
Author: Stephen Landrum
Last updated: 1996
Copyright © 2005 Stephen Landrum
The official and up-to-date version of this answer is here.

Legend holds that Wild Bill Hickok was shot to death during a poker game in Deadwood, South Dakota, and that the hand he held was two pair, black aces and black eights. On that most people agree. The fifth card is not known for certain. In order of credibility, the following kickers have been suggested:

Five of Diamonds
The actual card is supposedly on display in Deadwood, previously on display at the Stardust in Las Vegas.
Nine of Diamonds
Listed below in the glossary, this card was supposedly reported by first hand accounts, and is used in a recreation in Deadwood.
Queen of Clubs
On display at Ripley`s Believe it or Not.
King of Spades
Appeared in the 1936 movie

Um, silver morn, you might have missed the point of that brain fact. Seeing as how it was the list of myths, and therefore saying that humans use "virtually all of it over the course of a day". Which is kinda what you said. So I`m just kinda wondering why you said that.

Juuuuuuust curious.

"Humans use just 10 percent of their brains. Only true of Home Shopping Network customers. Because the brain’s highly specialized, we only use a tiny fraction of its cells at any one time—it’s closer to 5 percent—but we use virtually all of it over the course of a day. "

That is just a myth, actually. We use about 5-10 percent of our brains doing specific activities, but use nearly all of it in a day.

The coin part is wrong.
All objects fall at the same rate.

Firts off, you can expect that sort of thing for a magazine like Maxim. They aren`t scientific geniuses. They`re a bunch of sick perverts.

Secondly, all objects fall at the same rate <i>in a vacuum</i>.

Wow, can you say "sexist"? Maybe Maxim should stop exploiting women`s bodies for profit and get a life. Men should do dance lessons all they want.

Why, yes, yes I have. It was on Mythbusters. Sadly, I missed that episode. But the point is that the difference is so small that it would need an extremely large amount of trials to be important - like it said, statistically insignificant. But still interesting.

Fabbyfubz - Not exactly. If you drop two objects of the same size and shape, they fall at the same rate. But a coin is just one object, so the weight would control which side would land down due to the coin flipping around in mid-air.

And I gotta say - those Bonanza lyrics suck. The song`s better without them.

Aces over Eights refers to the fact that Aces are higher rank than Eights. A full house is Aces full of Eights, not Aces over. Also, the kicker is unknown, but has been suggested as Five of Diamonds, Nine of Diamonds, Queen of Clubs, and King of Spades. About the coin one - yeah, all objects fall at the same rate, but this is talking about how it lands, not when it lands. Try flipping a piece of bread with butter on one side - see which side hits the ground. The buttered side, because it weighs more. The fact that heads weighs more than tails by a small amount means that heads should end up on the ground more often than tails - if only a miniscule amount of time. It`s such a small difference though, that you can`t really count on it that often. While not stated, I`m sure they`re basing the figure off of a formula that someone created taking into account weight ratios.

"How to win more coin tosses
Always call tails. On U.S. coins, the heads side, with its big, solid portrait, weighs infinitesimally more: In the course of 10,000 tosses, the lighter tails side will come up an extra 50 or so times."

WRONG!!!! There was an American soldier who passed the time by flipping it and keeping track of the h/t. Of 1000000ish tosses, heads was ahead by about 600. EVEN THEN, it is not statistically significant.

When I got to the one about the McLaren F1 and it was WRONG I lost interest. To set the record straight, the fastest and most powerful production car in history is the Bugatti Veyron which has 1000BHP and blows the F1 into the weeds.

B-Hazard-Let me explain, Aces over 8s implies a full house (three Aces and a pair of eights, meaning it has to have at least one red Ace), black Aces & Eights is two pairs. Wild Bill had the Ace of Spades, Ace of Clubs, Eight of Spades, Eight of Clubs, and the Queen of Spades when he was shot in the back. There is nothing there that needs to be implied or inferred. The list is amusing, but mostly copied from other sources.

-I only noticed one mistake. A Dead Man`s Hand is black Aces & Eights, with a Queen of Spades as a kicker, not Aces over Eights.-

It says
"the cards “Wild Bill” Hickok was reported to have been holding when he was shot dead, is aces over 8s."
I`m pretty sure they just called it dead man`s hand because he was killed when he had it. See the connection?
