The Top Ten
My friend asked me this question then she said we use 10% of our brain ha. - Luckys
We use 0% of our brain because we are dumb enough to destroy habitats and kill our own species, and aliens ( if they exist) will watch it while eating popcorn like some sick game. But hey, we can ignore that...
This is the one that annoys me the most, as movies trot it out all the time like it's science. - truckturner
All the people saying we use 100% of our brain probably never had an acid experience...
Bulls are colorblind. It's the waving movement of the cape that annoys them. - Misfire
They are colorblind! When you wave the cape, they get annoyed ( for unknown reasons )
Red is blood. Blood is red. Red induces anger. Blood has revenge. Bull. Angry. #LameJokesRock - TriggerTrashKid
They can't see color
No, water needs other water to maintain its liquidity. If the water molecules surrounding a singular water molecule makes the subject water wet. Therefore water is wet. - Gamefreak23788
It isn't wet by itself, but it makes other solid materials wet when it sticks to their surface. - Misfire
This is a pure sarcastic meme turned into a scientific storm. - TriggerTrashKid
Also anyone else remember when this was a huge debate or is that just me? - Randomator
Although bats have tiny eyes, they are not blind. Bigger bats can see three times better than humans. - Misfire
Do you think of a non-blind bat or not? Hmmm... Strange this isn't number 1
Good, these cute lil creatures don't deserve to be blind. - XxembermasterxX
You’re telling me that my elementary school teachers have lied to me this whole time? - Randomator
Sucking out the venom is actually a HORRIBLE idea. Same goes for bees. - KalloFox34
Get ready for lip infection, plus, you'll have lips like Kylie Jenner. - TriggerTrashKid
Sucking out snake venom may lead to infection. A poisonous bite requires antivenom and treatment. - Misfire
Yet sucking out the venom COULD extend a life and reduce damage until further and better methods can be used - Billyv
But it’s still better to suck it out if you don’t have medicine - VeganTurtle
Crabs are red in my opinion - DrayTopTens
What are Crabs? - TriggerTrashKid
He actually didn't. He failed an entrance exam in school, but still excelled in math. The language the exam was given in was in French, and he didn't speak a lot of French during that time. - Misfire
This one is pretty obvious. - Kevinsidis
People say he has autism (which isn't proven but he might) - Luckys
If Einstein failed math, I know where I'm heading. - TriggerTrashKid
I hate anti-Autism generalizations. Every person on the spectrum is different. - Synchronocity
The only thing that causes autism is birth. It's genetic and not caused by vaccines. This fact is also used to hate on autistic people.
Not all who have vaccines have autism. Likewise, not all who are autistic have ever had vaccines. The only consistent thing all autistic people have was that their mom and dad had sex. So, sex causes autism
How many times do we have to debunk anti-vaxxers to get it through their heads that it's a complete myth?... Ignorance is really a way of "saving people's lives" and instead of not accepting the fact that vaccines save lives, not kill. - Kevinsidis
Actually, no. There's no known connection between knuckle cracking and hand arthritis. - Misfire
There was this guy who cracking knuckles on his right hand only for 60 years. There's no difference between his left and right hand.
The sound of your nickles cracking is actually the nitrogen popping in the area. - PhoenixAura81
Maybe a temporary feeling of numbness inside your hand, but not arthritis. - Archived
You'll probably feel chilly and uncomfortable, but you won't fall sick. Flu and cold aren't caused by low temperatures, they're caused by viruses. - Misfire
Low temperatures make you weak. Go completely naked on a 0 degrees day and tell me if you get pneumonia or it's just all in your head - keyson
It increases the chance of fungus landing on your hair. - TriggerTrashKid
If you go with out wet hair when it's raining - Murphypaw
This Just Shows How Much Peppa Pig Lies - Oliversky

On land, the elephant is. But overall, no - BUETBU91
The blue whale is - ElSherlock

I knew this. Told to so many people, but no one believed. Glad it's actually public now. - TriggerTrashKid
Do people not study? weird - Ashes
Some Pirate fuy did.. - TriggerTrashKid
There is a belief that swimming immediately after eating will cause stomach cramps, which could lead to drowning. However, this has never been documented. A combination of factors, such as dehydration, are more likely to be the cause of cramping during exercises, not a full stomach. There is nothing special about water that causes stomach cramps. - Misfire
Wearing cement shoes and tying your arms and legs can also make drowning more likely, but these things do not disprove that swimming with a full stomach doesn't increase the risk of cramps. These are separate and unrelated to whether or not the item listed is factual - Billyv
I found this out because I always used to eat before swimming and never puked - TwilightKitsune
Cramps sucks! lol
I’m pretty sure everyone’s mother just told them that - Randomator
It usually takes less than 7 days for gum to be passed through your system completely. - Misfire
Apparently if you swallow to gum your stomach lining will get thinner
This is not true.
I think also your stomach acid can digest come along with metal and wood
(DON'T EAT THEM THOUGH! ) - Murphypaw
And you was probably told when you was younger it would go around your heart ew.
No who the hell even came up with this? - Randomator
It happened to me several times, and it didn't always happens. Only sometimes.
It already happened to me. We didn't get to leave. - Misfire
Is this some sort of joke
Always a lie, lol.
Some sources say he was 5'2" (which would put him at the same size as Joan of Arc) but I'm not sure if they are legit. - Extractinator04
It was his guard who were tall witch made him look short
He was actually taller than average - Oliversky
Napoleon my bruh - TriggerTrashKid
According to some scientists, humans actually have 21 senses. - Misfire

I've sneezed with open eyes before - Unnamed Google User Remade
It is possible for some people to keep their eyes open when they sneeze, however, this is uncommon. - Misfire
If you sneeze with your eyes open your eyeballs pop out of your head

They have found a real black hole.
They are large amounts of mass - darthvadern
Birds are dinosaurs...

Despite decades of research, there has been little proof that chocolate or any specific fatty foods cause acne, but a high-sugar diet can increase the levels of oil your body produces and promote inflammatory responses in the body, which can lead to acne. It's more likely that the sugar in chocolate bars or cupcakes are the cause for new pimples than the cocoa itself. - Misfire
If it did I would have a breakout everyday. - ThatIntrovertedEmo
Yes this is a MYTH (surprise surprise! ). I have pretty bad acne, so one day, I looked through a bunch of sites on foods that cause acne. Here’s what I found in case any of you are interested:
1. First and foremost, acne is mostly a result of adolescence and genes passed down your family; foods are only slightly to blame, and some foods that might cause acne on some people don’t on others. So get that in your head as you read this list of foods that have the most affect on people.
2. Almost all the sites I looked at said that chocolate is NOT the cause of acne. In fact, chocolate is good for your face (surprise surprise! ) if it’s over 70% cocoa. Chocolate only seems bad for your face bcs most chocolate is highly processed and full of sugar.
3. The two biggest foods that cause acne are SUGAR and WHITE BREAD. (Sorry for caps, only had to get that point through)
4. Other foods that cause acne are the salty, oily, and pretty much unhealthy foods. (If you rly think about ...more
Enough with the autism stereotypes, America! - Synchronocity

Combining the two might make your stomach upset, but it won't kill you as there are no reports that support the claim that it could do so. - Misfire
In my country,they say that you can't mix mango and milk - JustSomeRandomDude
Yes, it is in fact a myth. However, you should still avoid sitting too close to the television. Although it won't damage your eyes, it still may cause eyestrain. - Misfire

Oh yes, This story, William Howard Taft is mainly known by many by the story of how he was so overweight that he actually got stuck in a bathtub. This is just a myth, No one knows for sure if he actually got stuck in the bathtub, But he did weigh a lot, That's for sure and he did have a special bathtub for himself. - B1ueNew
It's just a saying, not exactly considered as a "fact", but whatever. - Misfire
most moms - Luckys
If bullying is real and the internet is real then THIS IS REAL - Oliversky
It's real ofc - darthvadern
There are actually slightly more females in the world. 52% are females while 48% are males. - DrayTopTens
No there's more males in the world
He didn’t. The light bulb had already been around by the time Edison started working on it. It was just in a different form; Edison only perfected it. - Misfire
They can but usually in small amounts. Psychopaths most likely can't though that's not always the case. - Gabriola
I don't even know what to make of this list anymore. - Synchronocity
Who came up with that? - KalloFox34

This was tested before. A penny can not gather up enough force to break through someone’s body. - Archived
May I question the relevance of this item to anything else in the history of the universe? - Murphypaw
There is a popular folk myth that if one holds a seashell —specifically, most often, a conch shell —to one's ear, one can hear the sound of the ocean. The rushing sound that one hears is in fact the noise of the surrounding environment, resonating within the cavity of the shell. - Userguy44
They have only small similarities. But that doesn't count them as apes.
Monkeys came before apes. - KalloFox34
It’s real. It’s just going very slowly. - Userguy44
I tried to chew gum - I had buckteeth now I don't with painful braces I had in my teens.
I always swallowed it, I gave up on it and sadly never tried two ball screwball when I was a kid.
