al gore should read this one

Rapid deforestation has decreased the friction of the surface of the Earth, causing it to spin infinitesimally faster and thereby cool the air, combating global warming.

. . . At least one of these is BS. French does NOT have 17 words for surrender. I speak from experience here, too.

99-44/100% pure bulls**t.
This one is a fact: Ivroy soap floats due to an accident. A worker left the vat churning during his lunch break. The supervisor decided not to throw out the batch. Customer compliments about the floating bars of soap convinced the company to make all future batches the same way.

It said polar bears could eat 80 somthing penguins in one sitting. Even though polar bears and penguins live on exact opposite sides of the earth, Artica and Antartica.

In 1843, a Parisian street mime got stuck in his imaginary box and consequently died of starvation.

That's awsome.

Somebody is just messing with us. There is NO WAY, for example, that a sixth of our lives can be spent on Wednesdays - there's SEVEN days in a week. Unless we start having weeks with more Wednesdays in them than other days, that's impossible. Whoever comes up with these has quite an imagination, though, if not a good head for math.

RedVoodoo, either you missed the point of the statement or you're being sarcastic.

The myth is an extrapolation starting with an 'if'. It's not stating whether or not a cricket can become that huge (although were there an overabundance of food I'm confident evolution would have found a way), but is rather making a statement about the proportion of a cricket's jump in the spirit of relating how far a cricket can jump as is. In order to verify their statement, I'll need the length (specifically the length) of the Mt. Rushmore monument.

Constipation kills twice as much as Dihhorea? Not true, Dihhorea is the world's biggest killer.

If this was all real, this would be pretty awesome- although most of these are questionable at best... I mean come on! Imagine this- Wait, wait- don't charge! We forgot to cut our eyes out! AAAAA!!! YOu cut my drating eyes out! AAAAAA!!!! *gets up* Ok, guys, Does anybody know the way to the enemy? Maybe cutting out our eyes wasn't a good idea after all...

Ill debunk the cricket one right now. Its impossible for a bug to be that big, because the exoskeleton system only works on a very finate scale. To much weight and an exoskeleton would buckle. Though, if it WAS possible to get a cricket that big, it might be possible to leap to the moon...if the thing had really good aim...

"If you place a fresh Viagra tablet in a houseplant's soil every six months, the plant will not wilt."

This one is particularly outrageous. Plants wilt for lack of water filling their central vacuole (in plant cells), not because of misdirected blood flow...

"If a cricket were the size of Mount Rushmore, it could jump to the moon."

I tried looking for the length of Mt. Rushmore on-line but couldn't find it, so I e-mailed the tourist office up there. As soon as I get a significant reply, I'll either debunk or confirm this particular myth.

This list is verified by poop!

It says:

"Coca-Cola was the favored drink of Pharaoh Ramses. An inscription found in his tomb, when translated, was found to be almost identical to the recipe used today."

but Coca-Cola's ingredients are a tightly kept secret. There is a list of the contents on the can, but a very small number of people actually know the portions and that is what creates the taste.

Therefor the list's claim of verification is a charlatan.

Also, a mime would not get stuck in his box and starve to death.

Yes tomsfox, you proved it. People that discuss after you proved it are morons. And I guess the people that proved it before you did are just as stupid.

All of these are utter bullpoo: I could go through and refute many of them, but I have neither the time nor inclination.
