Rapid deforestation has decreased the friction of the surface of the Earth, causing it to spin infinitesimally faster and thereby cool the air, combating global warming.
The myth is an extrapolation starting with an `if`. It`s not stating whether or not a cricket can become that huge (although were there an overabundance of food I`m confident evolution would have found a way), but is rather making a statement about the proportion of a cricket`s jump in the spirit of relating how far a cricket can jump as is. In order to verify their statement, I`ll need the length (specifically the length) of the Mt. Rushmore monument.
This one is particularly outrageous. Plants wilt for lack of water filling their central vacuole (in plant cells), not because of misdirected blood flow...
"If a cricket were the size of Mount Rushmore, it could jump to the moon."
I tried looking for the length of Mt. Rushmore on-line but couldn`t find it, so I e-mailed the tourist office up there. As soon as I get a significant reply, I`ll either debunk or confirm this particular myth.
"Coca-Cola was the favored drink of Pharaoh Ramses. An inscription found in his tomb, when translated, was found to be almost identical to the recipe used today."
but Coca-Cola`s ingredients are a tightly kept secret. There is a list of the contents on the can, but a very small number of people actually know the portions and that is what creates the taste.
Therefor the list`s claim of verification is a charlatan.
Also, a mime would not get stuck in his box and starve to death.
The number of words in the Bible divided by the number of verses equals exactly 666.thats freaky
"Rapid deforestation has decreased the friction of the surface of the Earth, causing it to spin infinitesimally faster and thereby cool the air, combating global warming." -- Keep cutting those tree`s!
"Polar bears can eat as many as 86 penguins in a single sitting."
Considering that Polar Bears only live in the Arctic Circle and that Penguins only live on the Southerh hemisphere means that they will never, ever, meet each other. Therefore, unless they`re at a zoo, there`s no way for a polar bear to naturally eat a penguin.
I`m going to hold my faith in you and assume you`re being sarcastic here.
Send me a couple grand and all of your dreams will come true.
lol, I think someone just sat there and wrote random crap.
If all elephants in the world would jump at the same time, a magnitude 9 earthquake would destroy most of the western civilization because of wave traveling throught the Earth crust. Hence the elephant being the only animal that cannot jump and the successful development of western civilizations.
If you remove the battery from your remote controls before you go to sleep, you are 43 time less likely to be waken up at night by the lack of lost infrared beams reflected on walls and hitting your retina while sleeping.
In Belgium, because of the number of turn-left sign, sparrows tend to to turn left 78% of the time, creating a counter clockwise wind stream over the country called the "Sparrow typhoon".
Oh yeah, this list is true.
You don`t think that it might be a swipe at George Bush?
that doesnt even sound arabic if u try pronouncing it jeez
This is false, NC State won it. They are from Raleigh, which is the capital of NC
Also, In the late `90s, Microsoft secretly developed its own version of Linux, but shelved it after quality control researchers deemed it "too stable."
That is BS
As the sheer volume of Internet traffic has increased, the friction of the electrons passing around the planet has increased the overall global temperature by .07 degrees.
I can come up with better False Facts then these people
Totally stupid and outrageous. I live near the Biltmore House and that is totally untrue.
BS. NC State won the title in 1974&1983 and it is locacted in Raleigh, North Carolina`s capital.
I wouldn`t want to be the first baby of the evolved category. Seriously. WTF.
I`m about 95% sure that it`s a recessive trait. Seeing as tall people aren`t dying off due to the advantages of being a midget, that`s bullpoo.
In fact, a lot of it is.
Good to know... Bs.
"It is nearly three miles farther to fly from Amarillo, Texas to Louisville, Kentucky than it is to return from Louisville to Amarillo."
A to B = XB to A = X - 3??
How does that work? "Catfish are the only animals that naturally have an ODD number of whiskers." I think I`ve read this before... "Over the last two decades, more Americans died of heart attacks while watching horror movies in movie theaters than died while sky-diving."
They`d be smooth, that`s for sure. But hairless? Oil doesn`t stop puberty when it comes to hair, I don`t think.
"Because of their unusual shape, Hershey`s Kisses contain more calories per ounce than the same amount of chocolate in other forms."
Shapes don`t change the amount of calories in anything, right?
"In an effort to improve the nutritional value of its "Shamrock shakes," McDonald`s colors them with broccoli extract."
Ooh... don`t tell the kids that.
"Children conceived on airplanes never suffer from motion sickness."
That`s a keeper.
"Blue water in a toilet bowl causes males to urinate 7 percent more."
How do they know this?
"Over the last two decades, more Americans died of heart attacks while watching horror movies in movie theaters than died while sky-diving.
I`m sure I`ve done this before. My eyes are still intact. "If you part your hair on the right side, you were born to be carnivorous. If you part it on the left, your physical and psychological make-up is that of a vegetarian." I`m going to test this out someday. Take a poll. "When immersed in liquid, a dead sparrow will make a sound like a crying baby." Hey can it if it`s DEAD? "Although difficult, it`s possible to start a fire by rapidly rubbing together two Cool Ranch Doritos." Hm. I`ll test this out too.
"It is nearly three miles farther to fly from Amarillo, Texas to Louisville, Ken
Natural Selection chooses positive traits over negative traits. Do 2 rectums and 1 nostril sound POSITIVE to you?! "Female black cats can actually see their shadows at night." I have a female black cat... "With the exception of a small 200-square-mile section of Antarctica, every single square kilometer of dry land on the planet has been walked on by at least one human being." COOL. Just recently I thought "I bet someone`s walked in this very spot in the past." "The increased electricity used by modern appliances is causing a shift in the Earth`s magnetic field. By the year 2327, the North Pole will be located in mid-Kansas, while the South Pole will be just off the coast of East Africa." Already knew that. (If it`s true.) "Catfish are the on
Wrong. The typewriter at first was alphabetized, but it proved inefficient, so it was changed to the current QWERTY keyboard.
dont give me ideas...
"When subjected to an electric current of at least 50 volts, a cat`s tail always points toward the north."
"Fewer divorces occur in families in which the children wake their parents before 6 a.m. on Saturdays."
^^^^^^ - Do they actually do tests on the above statements?
"A prominent organization of anthropologists has predicted that by the year 5000, humans will have two rectums, but only one nostril." ^^^^^= Ok... WTF?!?
"There have been four documented cases of humans who have hibernated through an entire winter." ^^^^^^^- I want to do this!!!! :-)
"To human taste buds, Zima is virtually indistinguishable from zebra urine." ^^^^^^^^^^^^- EWWW - I USED to love Zima.
thats wrong in so many ways
so little 4-yearold girls are playing wit a wwII propaganda
Also everyone knows that high pitched sounds don`t travel, # Using its anal sphincter muscle, the Mongolian tapir is capable of creating high-pitched tones that can be heard by dogs nearly 30 miles away. so this would be impossible.
I read the first 3 words and thought "Hang on...this is a load of cr*p" - and bugger me - I was right!!
AHHHHH the polar bear conspiracy! they have outsmarted us ever since happy feet!
that doesnt even make sense!!!
that`s not true. the keyboard was set up so that the most commonly used letters were in convenient locations for your fingers. also, in other countries, the letters are in different places; i learned this the hard way when i went to belgium.
Male rhesus monkeys often hang from tree branches by their amazing prehensile penises. ouch.
I have this wierd urge to... find out.

"In 1843, a Parisian street mime got stuck in his imaginary box and consequently died of starvation."
So does ointment.
Awesome but most probably fake
"Every Labrador retriever dreams about bananas."
This site is a riot.
The internet is hardly ever correct.
let`s hope they didn`t remove anyone`s tonsils to test that.
I`m reading "Grettla" and I have read "Gísla Saga-Súrssonar" and "Egla", these books have alot of fights in it (icelandic sagas, most happen in denmark/norway/iceland i.e. scandinavian) and I have never ever heard of anything cutting their eye out... But most of those stories are hardly true, maybe it orignated way after those happened/were written (happened the year ~800 - 1100, were written 1300-1400!) but still.. never ever heard anything about that whilst on a subject about berserkers.
I found this remotely funny, but really they can`t do that on a practical level. Yet another one bites the dust.
Polar bears live at the north pole. Penguins live at the south pole. If the two ever see eachother, its in a poorly planned zoo.
elimitator it didn`t say which bible it was using.
" When subjected to an electric current of at least 50 volts, a cat`s tail always points toward the north."
I am going to so try this on my wife`s cat when I get home.
There should have been a fact at the end of this:
"Tell people enough outrageous things, and they will believe they are fact."
oh! come one!!! I did this several times and nothing happened.
And the 3rd most popular baby name in China? Buffy.
Its funny because if some dumbass tried some of these, like tobassco on the upper lip before bed, or vinegar and baking soda will make your eggs fluffier, well come on. Hilarity would ensue!
You actually needed to look that up? :-/
"Every fact on this list is BS"
i for 1 believe that :(
Wow, human-dog telepathy has really improved in the last few years!... What if the dog has never seen a fudgeing banana? What then?
The original inspiration for Barbie dolls comes from dolls developed by German propagandists in the late 1930s to impress young girls with the ideal notions of Aryan features. The proportions for Barbie were actually based on those of Eva Braun.
The ancient Arabic word "jorgbushii" translates roughly to "evil one who comes disguised in peace to drink Earth`s black blood."
The noun "sled" originates from the name of a 18th-century mountaineer from Finland, Schletz Linden, whose body was used by his climbing partner to slide down a mountain during a winter storm after he froze to death.
The melody of the classic hymn "Amazing Grace" originated from a 12th-century pagan song celebrating masturbation.

Worse than the Beserker one?
I find that claim dubious at best....how much havok could one wreak when you can`t see the enemy. I call shenanegans!
