    yes it will, feed 2 chocolate bars to your dog and the next time you sneeze force your eyes open while your sneezing...... all of this is true despite what you my say ... actually 1 may be fake, but i dont live in canada, and this list is kind of old, like 3-4 years old, but still there is 301 facts so maybe only 291 of them are FULLY up to date... stop bitching and just rate 4

    "a snail can sleep for 3 years"

    ...lucky...

    "all polar bears are left-handed"

    Wasn`t that proven false in a link that was submitted a little while back, I remember just learning that that isn`t true.

    while this was interesting, I think a lot of those are wrong or urban legends. The one that stood out for me was #97 (about all continents starting and ending with the same letter) as I am quite certain that Oceania doesn`t!

    I swear that I have read or heard somewhere that polar bears are ambidextrous, but I could be wrong.

    As for the % of overweight people in the US, I can`t prove it otherwise but the figure does seem high. Out of the 300 million americans, how many are considered adults? Wikipedia says that about 72.7% of people in the US are 20 years old or over, and I saw on census.gov that overweight rates are around 60ish%... so it is probably not far off after all! *shrugs*

    oh well, it was still entertaining :D

    Bordered, try making a full, coherent sentence next time so we know what you are saying.

    I thought the continent was called Oceania, but the term Oceania actually refers to a region http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceania

    Obviously Australia is the country, but I didn`t think the name also referred to the continent.

    281 makes no sense. to cause a stomach to explode it needs to expand i think it was like 4 or more times its size as tested on mythbusters. a seagull would either throw up the alker seltzer or have the gas released before it exploded.

    quite a few are untrue, but still entertaining.

    elephants arent the only ones that cant jump, polar bears arent left-handed—ambidextrous yeah, uhm... the thing w lefties dying early isnt statistically significant if only 11% of the pop is lefty and they die from accidents because it was made exclusively for righties. oh and the canada thing yeah is wrong. maybe somethin else dont care dont know why im even writing this

    32) Correction, baking-chocolate CAN kill dogs

    48) It is correct that the earths magnetic poles do switch places however it happens like once every 10,000 years or something like that

    137) $283,200 is the most money you can win in Jeoprady (in one day)

    154) All polar bears are left-handed (false actually scientists first thought this because when they saw a polar bear doing something with their left hand they would notice but not with their right because it was "normal")

    158) Elephants AND Rhinos so not just Elephants can`t jump

    211) Percentage wise Alaskan crab fishing is the most dangerous job

    215)Yes the heart IS a muscle

    I`m sure there are more but these are the ones that I know

    135. find some words that do ryme :p
    181. a rhin horn is made of condensed keratin fibers, the protien hair is made of.
    198. da vinci designed all these tings, he invented the corkscrew helicopter, which theoretically would work.
    215. the toung is rediculously strong, just its strength cannot be applied as it has only one fixed point.
    284. humans shed skin all the time, and a most of "dust" is this shed skin broken down into tiny particles.

    However, that statement is false, there`s no american flag on the 2$ bill, just google it and you`ll see

    Number 14 is true. I own ferrets and have read many legitimite sources on this one. That`s why all ferrets are neutered when you buy them, unless the place you bought them from obtained them illegally through ferret mills. (Or unless you are a breeder) but any reputable breeder will neuter them before sale. Most ferrets come from the breeder Marshalls though. :(

    2nd It`s BS heinz never had 57 varieties the number was chosen because it looked good when the logo came out they had way more than 57 different products on the market..... PWND

    "#19 is Wrong. I 2x4 is not 1 1/2 x 3 1/2, but
    1 3/4 x 3 3/4."

    Actually a 2x4 is 1 1/2 by 3 1/2, if you measured this off of a stud that you have in your house you live in an old house because they used to be bigger but they decided to make them smaller to save on wood.

    There are several that are factually incorrect (some thanks to Mythbusters). This greatly lessons the validity of the rest.

    "number 3, 24, 51, 89 (i havent seen a white christmas in like 5 years), 132, 154 (ambidextrous), 158 (they can have all four feet off the gorund, but the same thing with hippos), 162, 195 (its true, but any urine glows under a blacklight), 198 (he thought of them, but usually didnt invent them), 215, 229, 236, 254 (mideval days, thought it was demons), 266 (johnny appleseed was not real), and 293 (they died on the sameday, only a few hours apart) are wrong"

    http://cleveland.about.com/od/peopleandp... Johnny apple seed was real
    On 293 they said same day not same hour
    on 51, casinos do not have clocks because they do not want there patrons to know how much time they have spent there. some even block cell phone reception inside the casino.

    i dont hate you, your just wrong

    "they are actually thistles"

    Yes but both are members of the family Asteraceae.
    Thus making artichokes a member of the daisy family and vice versa.

    Asteraceae

    Yeah a couple of these have been proven wrong by Mythbusters...and 254: i read it was because people used to believe the devil took over your heart when you sneezed and you said bless you to make it start beating again.

    i thought "bless you" started when the plague was around, because that was one of the first symptoms. they said it to try to wish luck in not having it.

    Did anyone notice how many of these are wrong? Like the "rule of thumb". It simply means measuring something by estimation. I stopped reading it because I`m sure other stuff is wrong too. Fact check first buddy!
