    I haven`t had most of those quoted to me before -- in fact, the only one I`ve been told is the one about not swimming until 30 minutes after eating.

    I did decide to pass on the BS info about eating the spiders to my sister though. :-D

    I go swimming all the time after eating... I have my own pool so I just lay back and relax with the kids but I have never died from doing it... obviously.

    As for the spider one... that has always freaked me out. And for the record, its not the myth that freaks me out. I actually had a spider crwalling on my face once and I woke up to find it on my nose.... yeah, freaked me out from then till FOREVER!

    The link is retarded, it doesn`t give any real `facts` or reasons to back up what it says, it just `assumes` which it even admits in some of the `truths` the author talks about.

    just like Davymid, who has no clue what they`re talking about with some of their `facts`


    Davymid: give some `facts` if you`re trying to state something you probably just read how they are myths and blah blah from an email. Back it up.

    "I sorta believe number 4 though."

    Well, it`s not true.

    #6 - Pretty obvious, especially considering many people don`t sleep with their mouths open.
    #5 - Laughable "statistic". I`ve felt like backhanding people for years that spout this off. And what`s worse, many of those people have been my teachers.
    #4 - Just stupid.
    #3 - Simply doesn`t make sense.
    #2 - Not as bad as the myth makes it seem. Still, exercising after eating, which is what swimming is, has the potential to create discomfort.
    #1 - Yeah, all facts disprove this myth. (example: http://psychologytoday.com/articles/pto-20040105-000026.html)

    People would always tell me that you have to wait 30 minutes before swimming after you ate and I didn`t believe them so I would always eat and then go swimming and annoy the people who kept telling me not to. =P
