Things People Think That Aren’t True?

        1. Getting cold will give you a cold/the flu. (It might weaken your immune system, but getting sick is all about germs, germs, germs! It is true that not wearing a jacket when it’s cold will make your mother cold. Really. Trust me on this.)
        2. Vikings wore horned helmets. (That came from opera costumes.)
        3. Carrots improve eyesight. (WWII propaganda.)
        4. Cracking your knuckles will give you arthritis. (No, but it makes you annoying.)
        5. Goldfish have 3-second memories. (They can remember information for up to five months.)
        6. Lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice. (Things that attract lightning once are likely to attract it again.)
        7. Monsanto sued farmers when GMO seeds blew onto their farms. (No, they sued farmers who used various methods to circumvent paying Monsanto for patented seeds.)
        8. Jellyfish stings should be treated by peeing on them. (No, get out of the water, rinse the area with salt water and seek medical treatment.)
        9. “420” is the Los Angeles Police Department code for marijuana use. (No, it’s the code for juvenile disturbance.)
        10. We eat 8 spiders a year in our sleep. (It’s just 3. Not really, I kid, it’s zero. Spiders don’t want anything to do with you.)
        11. Marilyn Monroe wore a size 16 dress. (You’d like to think so, wouldn’t you Chubs? Nope, she had a 22-inch waist and weighed less than 120 pounds. If she were alive today, she’d probably wear a US size 4.)
        12. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. (Unless, of course, you can’t, then it’s…)
