Knowing for a fact that at least two of those were proven to be historically incorrect...it leave me to question the validity of the rest of these "facts".

I already knew about the brain being active after death... but I didn`t know there was actual electrical current...
So we all get a 37-hour dream about being in heaven or the afterlife or whatever before we go away forever. And get buried with worms eating us.

Some of these are true and some aren`t.

My daughter is now 6 weeks old and I know for a FACT she`s had tears streaming down her face over the last few weeks when she gets hungry. So the whole no tears until 6 weeks is bs.

Crap. You mean someone can go back and look at my stupid posts that weren`t that funny or were written when I was in a bad mood? Of course, only someone who was really bored would do that.

Some more facts:
Humans have more teeth than crocodiles.

Some parts of the human brain use lasers.

The methane emitted from one human fart can give 30 species of bird lung cancer.

HIV is actually good for you.

The introduction of mashed potatoes into our diet is the sole contributor to human reason.

Golf players routinely break the laws of thermodynamics.

A toddler splashing in a baby pool creates enough energy to destroy Neptune.

There is no such thing as a fourth vertebrae. It just goes from third to fifth. No one knows why.

One drop of human sweat can lubricate an entire race car, for three days.

The liver has no known function.

Don`t you mean the APPENDIX has no known function? And how the hell is HIV good for you?!

Here`s a little tidbit; That X-ray of that woman`s hands was actually the very first x-ray ever taken by Roengen, of his wife`s hands.

Yay for grade 8 science :p

it is NOT physically impossible to sneeze with your eves open. I have done it before. all that happens is that the sneeze gets slightly supressed

I tried to look for a source on the finger shrinking thing...couldn`t find anything. I`m going to measure my fingers from now on.

The sneeze thing is crap. I`ve sneezed with my eyes open.It does caus the sneeze to be less intense though.

"Someone should figure out why the middle finger shrinks when girls get their periods... That`s odd."

I think it shrinks so that it`s less obvious to tell if they`re flipping us men off.

"Pound per pound, the human body produces more energy than the sun"

Only if you include the vast parts of the sun that don`t produce ANY energy. One could only imagine if our bodies actually produced more energy than atomic fusion.

I knew lots of these, also, you can sneeze with your eyes open if ya hold them open, but there`s a chance of them popping out. Also, if you pinch your nose when you sneeze it can like, kill your brain, but i do it all the time and I`m fine... sorta...

"Physically impossible" to sneeze with your eyes open? Do people actually believe this? Sneezes as fast as a category 5 hurricane? Try category 1.

I love how so many people here "already knew" this bullsh*t.

Do you see that little red and blue logo at the bottom for "Demand Media Entertainment" ? Those are the folks that bought out the site from Buddy (hence his lack of posts). Assumedly, fancylad works for the group that bought the site, hence his excessive number of posts.

Now you know.

A womans middle finger shrinks during her period probably because they use it so much during that time so it`s smaller for easy access ^_^.

Woman on period = bitchy woman = frequent use of the birdy :-D

I question the truth of lots of those statements. Sneezing that fast would break something, there are plenty of things that can destroy hair just as good as fire does and the whole sneezing with your eyes open is a load of balls!

Seemed pretty interesting until I realised most of them were probably made up. The last one about it being `physically impossible` to sneeze with your eyes open is just plain wrong. Any doctor could tell you that.

I`m curious how many of these are actually true. There are no references for where they found this information. The last one about it being impossible to sneeze with your eyes open is false. This was disproved on Mythbusters.

Fancylad deposed buddy as the webmaster when we weren`t looking.

And being a medical student, I already know a lot of the facts. Brain not feeling anything, for example, is due to the brain not having any sensory nerves. The skull does tho.

And I knew all of those because I am a master of collecting useless information. *sigh* More originalness needed, vid maker! These are reasonably common "did you know"`s so really everyone DOES know...

Or, at least, they do in my area. =D GO COLLEGE GO!
