    I knew all of these, except the belly button lint. If that lint stinks when decomposing then why does it need "no correction?" Wash those navels, people.

    Most of them are true, but there are one or two that really are just popular myth.

    The raining frogs, fish, and birds thing is just a natural thing that happens when they are picked up by a hurricane or whatever. Like in Twister, when the cow gets picked up. When it falls down, these guys would say that it had been rained down.

    Our Earth day will be 55 times as long in 15 billion years, huh? So if humanity survives that long, we`re going to need to migrate to other planets or something, because our planet would be fried.

    "Animals can naturally explode."

    Humans can also explode, though mostly as a defense mechanism and more popularly in the Middle Eastern region of the planet. Yea... bad joke.

    I knew most of these scientific facts, although I dispute the skies can actually rain animals. It`s not possible.

    A significant population of toads in Germany and Denmark were exploding in April 2005 in an act described as a self-defence mechanism that failed, as it consisted of puffing up to look bigger while under attack by crows.

    I agree with Overmann, it can not rain animals. To have it rain animals you must first evaporate one and let it condens.....

    hmmmm, I could try to evaporate my neighbours dog.....if it doesn´t condens and forms a dog, who cares...

    Male seahorses can`t get pregnant. Like some animals, they change their sex (yup, go from male to female (I`m not sure if this happens multiple times)) so, when it`s a female it gets pregnant, when it`s a male, nope.

    Matwix: there are some animals that change sex (e.g. clownfish) but seahorses are not one of them: it`s just that with seahorses the male is the one that carries the developing fetus.

    I`ve heard of a couple of those... this one was interesting:

    It is expected that in 15 billion years, the orbit will stabilize at 1.6 times its present size, and the Earth day will be 55 days long equal to the time it will take the Moon to orbit the Earth.

    Well, I knew about the raining animals, exploding animals, fetuses inside their twins (saw a special on it, it was gross), pregnant sea-horses, moon drifting away, maggots healing wounds, Angel Lust, and... I think that`s it. 7/10? I think that`s pretty good...

    I know, same here. It`s such common knowledge.

    Though the whole "the universe is beige" thing was completely new to me. That`s pretty cool, too.

    I knew 5. The belly button, fetu in fetu, seahorse, exploding animals and fly larvae things.

    However, I don`t know anything about Honduras, but if they`re finding small, dead, freshwater fish on the ground after a storm, then this seems very possible. If flooding of nearby rivers occurs, smaller fish could be carried out of the rivers and into the floodwaters as they aren`t too strong, and I bet that they could travel a bloody long way in 2 or 3 hours, even if the fish aren`t classed as "nearby". Or maybe big fish just don`t inhabit nearby waters. Then when the flood waters recede/exaporate many fish are left.

    Actually seeing them fall from the sky is odd. A practical joke that some students pull every years perhaps? Yeah, that seems about right :).
