    "Scandinavian berserkers used to cut out their eyes before battle to spare themselves the sight of the carnage they invariably wrought."

    I find that claim dubious at best....how much havok could one wreak when you can`t see the enemy.

    In 1843, a Parisian street mime got stuck in his imaginary box and consequently died of starvation.

    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.

    Tap dancers frequently forget to breathe normally during difficult routines, resulting in an average of 200 tap dancing-related tragedies per

    "A prominent organization of anthropologists has predicted that by the year 5000, humans will have two rectums, but only one nostril."

    "A Tokyo inventor has developed a laptop computer whose battery is recharged by energy generated from the movement of the user`s mouse, yet Sony lawyers have successfully blocked every attempt to produce a product using the technology."
    the energy produced (let alone the energy that we could re-use) from moving a mouse wouldnt nearly power an entire laptop.
    "The sound made when a duck passes gas is the precise acoustic opposite of its quack; if it does both simultaneously, there`s no audible sound."
    only under certain conditions... if either sound wave changed mediums, the whole effect would be skewed.

    This list is bogus. There is no information to be found that supports the claim that Microsoft made its own version of linux, nor would they refuse to produce it if it were stable. Frank Serpico was NOT a creation of Peter Mass, but was a real police officer.

    There should have been a fact at the end of this:

    # Scandinavian berserkers used to cut out their eyes before battle to spare themselves the sight of the carnage they invariably wrought.

    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.

    The typewriter was invented by Hungarian immigrant Qwert Yuiop, who left his "signature" on the keyboard.

    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.

    "Tap dancers frequently forget to breathe normally during difficult routines, resulting in an average of 200 tap dancing-related tragedies per year."

    How can one forget to breathe? It`s involuntary. I think it means they are concentrating so hard they unconsciously stop breathing - not a matter of forgetting.

    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

    here`s another one:

    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".

    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.

    And a last one for the fun of it:

    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.

    While just bounching down the list I noticed one that made me stop believing this at all:

    "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.

    This list is verified by poop!

    It says:

    "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.

    "If you place a fresh Viagra tablet in a houseplant`s soil every six months, the plant will not wilt."

    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.

    Ill debunk the cricket one right now. Its impossible for a bug to be that big, because the exoskeleton system only works on a very finate scale. To much weight and an exoskeleton would buckle. Though, if it WAS possible to get a cricket that big, it might be possible to leap to the moon...if the thing had really good aim...

    RedVoodoo, either you missed the point of the statement or you`re being sarcastic.

    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.

    Somebody is just messing with us. There is NO WAY, for example, that a sixth of our lives can be spent on Wednesdays - there`s SEVEN days in a week. Unless we start having weeks with more Wednesdays in them than other days, that`s impossible. Whoever comes up with these has quite an imagination, though, if not a good head for math.
