I had this idea a while ago and it popped into my head last night

Ever been told something that you have doubted is true but understood it as true> Well perhaps we could dispel the myths.

I'll start:


"Do drinking water from the bathroom taps turn you mental"

Eating less than an hour before swimming gives you a cramp - and you'll drown.

Always heard that it was because it could make your digestion stop :/

Anyone ever see that teen slasher film, Urban Legend?

Is it true that if you eat sherbet and then drink soda, your stomach can't handle it?? :confused:

Or am I just really gullible?? Lol! :D

My parents used to tell me if I picked dandelions I would wet myself.

And that If you shave your hair it comes back thicker.

I was told that if you ate apple seeds a tree would grow in your stomach.

I was scared until I was seven with that last one. :vlol:

No, but if you eat PoP RocKs and Ginger ale you're in for a world of hurt. LOL

We won't even broach the Mentos and Diet Coke fiasco.:ton:


It's funny what we pick up as truths no matter how implausible they seem.




D'oh! Too slow. Kerrigan beat me. LOL

Is it true you can put a chicken in a trancelike state if you lay it on its back and turn its head to the side?

Why anyone would want to do this is beyond me.

Seriously; why would you wanna hypnotise a chicken?

:wve:

You were saying? :whi: Now seriously, would you like this going on in your stomach? :cln:

Most water companies regularly put additives in drinking water; such as fluoride as a means of preventing/reducing tooth decay. But drive you mental? Hasn't happened yet :tea:

I drink from them when I'm too lazy to go downstairs and get a drink, and I'm pretty mental. But I'm pretty sure I was like that when I was born.

My parents lie to me a lot, then tell me off for lying. Pfft, Hypocrites.

Maybe that explains a lot...:whi:
