Default The General mis-conception thread



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.

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??

Or am I just really gullible?? Lol!

Or that you explode if you drink Soda after Menthos.

Or that people can suffer instant combustion.

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.
