14. Do you promise to empty one carton of milk before you open another one?

36 Facts You have Always Believed to be True but are Actually False

1. Bananas Grow on Trees
Truth - Actually, they grow on massive herbs that just resemble trees.

2. Napoleon was Short
Truth - A tall tale. At five six, he was slightly above average height for a Frenchman of the time.

Truth - This doesn't increase the risk of cramps; alcohol is the biggest risk increaser. But a full stomach will make you short of breath.

4. Salty Water Boils Quicker
Truth - Adding a sprinkle of salt to water makes no difference. It can actually make boiling take longer.

5. MSG = Headaches
Truth - There's no scientific proof-just anecdotal evidence implicating monosodium glutamate.

6. Dropped Pennies Kill
Truth - Terminal velocity of a penny is 30 to 50 mph. Not fast enough to kill-but it sure would sting.

7. Oil Stops Stuck Pasta
Truth - Nope; it'll only make it greasy. Stirring prevents sticking.

8. Three Wise Men
Truth - Nowhere in the Bible does it specify that there were three.

11. Milk increases Mucus
Truth - It doesn't. There's no need to avoid dairy if you have a cold.

13. Einstein Failed Math
Truth - He failed an entrance exam for a school but still excelled in math.

14. Humans and Dinosaurs

17. Missing-Persons Reports
Truth - Police don't require a 24-hour waiting period before accepting a missing-persons report.

Truth - There are not different sections of the tongue for each taste: bitter, sour, salty, sweet, and umami (savory/meaty).

19. Only 10% of the Brain Is Used
Truth - The proportion of the brain "firing" at any one time is task dependent, but ultimately, every region is used almost every day.

20. Bats Are Blind
Truth - Not only can bats see, but they also use echolocation. That's why they're so awesome!

21. 7 Years to Digest Gum
Truth - The chewy base of gum is indigestible and passes straight through. The remainder is absorbed.

22. Vikings' Horns
Truth - The helmets were created by a costume designer for a 19th-century Wagner opera.

23. Great Wall of China
Truth - It's not visible from space. No single human structure is visible from orbit, but you can see cities at night.

25. Vaccines Cause Autism

Truth - Even in heavy users and alcoholics, brain cells aren't killed, only damaged.

28. Iron Maidens
Truth - These were never medieval torture devices, but 18th-century fakes were created for sensational circuses.

Truth - They'll be really confused, but it's OK. They're more likely to hurt themselves if they're not awoken.

31. Goldfish's 3-Second Memory

Truth - Studies have disproved this. Poor or rowdy behaviors still occur in children with sugar-free diets.

33. Shaving Thickens Hair
Truth - Regrown hair isn't thicker, coarser, or darker; it just appears so because it grows back with a blunt tip.

34. The Vomitorlum
Truth - Not a room Romans used for Bacchana-lian binges, but the name for the en-trance to a stadium.

35. Caffeine Dehydrates You
Truth - Not really. The diuretic effect of caffeine is offset by the amount of water in a caffeinated drink.

36. Bulls Hate Red
Truth -
Bulls are color-blind. They actually perceive the motions of the bullfighter's cloth as a threat.
