    I naively stumbled through the list thinking it had a chance of being true until I glanced at "Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a space suit damages it."
    as if beans are the sole cause of flatulence.

    Some of those stuff are not true.
    Like the fact about the dot in 7UP. That was created late 1800 early 1900, so any photos of him are black and white. How could they exactly know if he was Albino, or not?

    Oh, just because some of the stuff on the list isn`t true, doesn`t make them all false. And I`m sure you can poke some holes through some of them. Still was an interesting read, nonetheless.

    Most of the stuff I looked up turned out to be wrong . For example the Declaration of Independence was written on Parchment paper not hemp. Parchment is derived from animal skins. . " Susan Lucci is the daughter of Phyllis Diller " That is wrong. That was the top five makes me wonder how much more is wrong

    idd b-hazard.

    also there are clocks in casinos in vegas. its in your pocket as a cell phone, on your wrist, AND ON THE WALL!!!!

    on celery: it has 18 calories per 118 grams, that`s about one stalk. that`s a positive number if I in fact, did pass first grade math. it also has 4 grams of carbs, no fat and no protein.

    the guiness book is not the most stolen from libraries. it`s the bible. which should actually be even a crazier thing to put on this site. but at least its true.

    if farting truly damages a space suit, then beans would still be allowed. the only reason why people think beans make them fart is because they are really high in fiber. trust me, there is no special farting chemical in a bean.

    oscars were not made of wood in WWII. they were made of plaster, which the celebrities could exchange for the metal ones after the war was over.

    the 7 up inventor was not albino. he was a normal looking white guy. nothing special. check it out on snopes.

    dynapyre, There are no clocks on the walls in casinos (at least on the floor). They are made dark and hard to get out of so that you lose any sense of time and hopefully stop at another slot machine.

    Susan Lucci isn`t Phyllis Diller`s daughter... And chocolate doesn`t kill dogs instantly. Baker`s chocolate has been known to cause kidney failure in dogs who are allergic to it. Unfortunately there`s no way to know if your dog is allergic, so it`s best just not to give them any.

    Wow ... I bet most of these (all?) aren` true.
    1) Money is actually 75% Linen and only 25% cotton.
    2)Had to look around to confirm this one - but I couldn`t find anything very reliable one way or the other. It appears whole newsgroup(s) exist to argue about what the declaration of independence was made of ...
    3)A tittle is a small diacritic mark, such as an accent, vowel mark, or dot over an i.
    4)Appears to be true :-)
    5)False! Her parents Jeanette and Victor Lucci

    Sorry, but this list is fail. While interesting enough to be worth my time, I already knew about half of those things, and I have never been in a situation where knowing any of them has helped me in any way, so "you should know" does not apply here. Furthermore, some of them are also poorly researched and inaccurate.

    "A scorpion can`t sting itself to death, otherwise they would all be dead"
    That`s if it has alcohol poured on it. Not like it just decides "You know what? I`m going to sting myself to death!"
    And I`m pretty sure that one would be untrue. A scorpion`s venom wouldn`t effect itself, would it?

    Baking chocolate is the most dangerous, because it`s the theobromine in the chocolate that is bad. White chocolate is the least dangerous, because lots of other things are added (milk, sugar, etc,) that dilutes the amount of theobromine in the chocolate. All of them are bad, though; it`s not a question of allergies, as all dogs can`t process chocolate well.

    It was right, it does affect their body adversely and can kill them if they have too much. `Bout the only thing it was right on...

    A lot of these I know were lies. The inventor of 7up was not an albino, they have pictures of him ffs its just an urban legand.

    "On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents, daily."

    Horsesh*t. Maybe in third world countries, but around here its law to do things like, put the little band with parents names on the parents, and on the kid as soon as they are done cleaning it in the heating bed.

    BABY_BEAR:

    What you "knew" isn`t necessarily true.

    Rule of thumb, for example, has nothing to do with a law about men being allowed to beat their wives with a stick as long as it was no thicker than their thumb. It would be impossible for the phrase to be derived from that law, because that law never existed. There are extensive records in England dating back centuries. We even have records of laws dating back to the 9th century (the laws of Alfred the Great, ~890). There is no record of any such law ever existing. The earliest known mention of it was in 1976, as an example of how Men Are Bad And Oppress Wimmin And Only Brave Bold Feminists Can Stop Them.

    There was an incident, *centuries after the origin of the phrase* in which a judge was accused by his enemies of supporting the idea. The judge was ridiculed and villified as a result (showing that wife-beating was widely despised, not supported). It isn`t known whether he said it or his enemies were slandering

    Oh yeah, the real origin of "rule of thumb".

    A rule is a simple measuring device, what would nowadays normally be called a ruler.

    An experienced artisan can get a reasonably accurate measurement of distance using their experience and their thumb as a measuring device.

    They are using a rule of thumb instead of a rule of wood or a rule of metal. This used to be common practice.

    I`ve seen it done nowadays, by a carpet-fitter laying carpet tiles and assessing how much he needed to cut a tile to fit. He was accurate to about 1/16th of an inch using his thumb as a rule.

    A rule of thumb is a reasonably accurate guide derived from experience. The real origin of the phrase matches that. The feminist fantasy origin doesn`t.

    Most of these lists of "facts" on the net are rubbish. You`re better off assuming that they are all wrong than assuming that they are right, because most of them are wrong.

    "Orcas (killer whales) kill sharks by torpedoing up into the shark’s stomach from underneath, causing the shark to explode."
    is bullpoo. Orcas do it so their prey`s tongue exits the mouth, enabling another orca (they travel in groups known as pods) to bite the tongue off (or at least cut it deeply) and bleed out the prey.

    29 is partially false.
    "29. Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to eat a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. It’s the same with apples!"
    An average apple contains 60 calories, which is more than it takes to chew and digest.

    That astronauts one is fake.
    Yes, you CAN FART IN SPACE. Problem is, it`ll stay with you on your space suit, and you`ll breathe the fart in again. When you get back to the station, removing your suit means removing the trapped gas inside. Which means that your fellows will have to not breathe if they don`t want to smell your gas.

    A scorpion can`t sting itself to death, otherwise they would all be dead

    When scorpions fight each other they sting each other to kill... scorpions don`t sting themselves for the same reason we don`t strangle ourselves.

    Since I`m a loser and always online, I`ve heard about 20 of these previously. Most "facts" though seem like a bunch a crap.

    Kilver rhymes with silver (it`s an old english word having to do with surnames).
    Curple (or kurple, not sure how it`s spelled) rhymes with purple and is a piece of a horse`s saddle.
    The thing about how eating an apple takes more calories than the apple has in it is just plain bullsh*t.

    What a crock of, well, it isn`t all true. For sure Susan Lucci is NOT related to Phyliss Diller! Her daughter it said. BS. She is the daughter of Jeanette and Victor Lucci. Born in New York. Not that it matters, just find one that is wrong for sure and you have to wonder about all the rest.

    I love the people on this forum trying to show how smart they are by claiming that they already knew these things.

    But really, if you didn`t even need to read this list to learn all of these... "facts," congratulations, you must be the smartest person in the whole Internet!

    Seriously, use the word "fact" and people will believe any goddamned thing you say. Anyone who already "knew" this bullsh*t, I`ve got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

    No? How `bout some swampland in Florida? And you should really check out this stuff called "dihydrogen monoxide," it`s totally bad for the environment.

    7-Up is named because it has seven ingredients and there are seven letters in the words seven up. The dot means nothing. Nor was the inventor an Albano.

    words that rhyme with orange. storage, sporage, etc.
    purple, nurple. Even if it is made up it fits. And silver? How many words end in er? The only word that I cant think of that rhymes with anything month.

    31. The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher.
    Is the glue killed a certain way???

    ...and primetimekin, you need to work out what rhyming properly means. "Storage" does not rhyme with "Orange", it would have to be "Storange", its the main body of the word that has to rhyme, not just the last two letters, ie "silver" doesnt rhyme with "fuller" does it?

    Basically no other (non fictional) word ends in "ilver" or "orange" or "urple". But yeah, you`re right about `month`.

    Doomlike - don`t doubt, check.

    The first handy page direct from a primary source that I happened to find was from the Swiss National Bank:

    http://www.snb.ch/en/iabout/cash/current/id/cash_current_prod

    If you care to check further, you`ll find that most bank notes are made of cotton, or at least mostly cotton (USA notes use a mix of cotton and linen).

    But don`t take my word for it. If you want to know anything, check the primary source if possible or a reliable source (i.e. not Wikipedia or a random website) if not.

    The Donald Duck one among with a load of others is bull crap. I`m Finnish and I can prove with a collection of Donald Duck comics since the 50`s (not a pause anywhere in the line) and if that`s not enough, check this:

    I stopped reading at the Susan Lucci one. What`s the point if it`s all made up.
