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. :(

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

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

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.

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.

some of these are wrong...

they`re not left handed, they`re ambidextrous.

158: elephants are the only mammals that cannot jump

rhinos and hippos cant jump either.

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
