haha we always learn about this one in psych classes =w=

"an iron rod was stabbed through a mans skull and he lived eleven years more"
He lived, but his personality changed drastically. People didn't like him any more because he became very rude/mean :p (if I'm thinking of the same person you are)



I'm curious where you found these as well.

like:
"55% of americans dont know the sun is a star"
Reeeeeeeeally? When was that statistic taken? It sort of matters if it's taken within the last year or 30 years ago lets say...

"rats will eat anything includin there children 9that is why rat poison works!"
Are you talking domesticated or non? Because the two are as different as domesticated dogs and wild wolves x_x

"your eyeballs never grow"
I've read they do, though slightly.

"all polar bears are left handed"
What? Like their fish catching hand or something? have they personally interviewed each and every polar bear in existance? XD

"a crocodile as the worlds no.1 most strongest bite yet is mouth can be kept shut with duck tape"
That's because it has a strong bite closing, not opening =w=



I didn't look up every single question to check for accuracy/validity, just a few that stood out to me :p

Yea, I was talking about the eyeball thing. When you're born, your eyes are 80% as large as they'll ever be.

The polar bear thing is weird too. I'm guessing that an expert found something in polar bear muscles, which led them to believe that the left paw is more dominant.

And I seriously doubt that only 2% of the world has red hair. Maybe 10% at the least.

And salads with more fat than burgers? Perhaps if you didn't eat the burger... My guess is that whoever founded this theory stretched the rules a bit. (Like an extra large salad with condiments may have more fat than a small burger)

Oh, and more info on the rod man? I've heard about that, but not the details.

pretty much. Certain dressings can definitely make the calorie count go up. Also cheese, croutons, bacon, and so on.


Here is a pic of how the rod went through his skull (his name was "Phineas Gage" if you care to google it)


Spoiler:

ouchies.

lol didn't mean to throw you off XD

Sometimes knowledge we acquire over time turns out to be wrong, even if we've believed it for so many years. I've had it happen to me dozens of time.

When in doubt, double check your facts online or in a trusted reference book ^^!

Oh and the pic I posted isn't bloody or gross or anything. It's just a drawing of 4 skulls from different angles showing how the rod went through. If you still don't want to look that's fine >_<

Same here, things you hear can often be wrong. You never know where the other person heard it from, you know?

Oh, and Cinder, the "81% of statistics are false" thing is a joke. I'm hoping you knew that.
