Most Popular Myths - Debunked
Accidently found a website (isn't how it always happens) from LiveScience.Com that debunks some of the most popular myths out there.
Some of the myths include:
Hair and fingernails continue growing after death
It takes seven years to digest gum
Water drains backwards in the Southern Hemisphere due to the Earth's rotation
The last one is a source of contention in my house. No matter how much I try convince the wife and kids that flushing the toilet in one hemisphere is no different then flushing it in another, they just don't believe me. I'm about to videotape our toilet flushing and water draining down the sink so that when we go to Australia in two weeks I can prove to them once and for all that they are all on crack.
