The idea is to post something that you have read or seen on the news as a factual statement. I will start it out.
Please do not post religious or political messages. This is mostly for fun.
--------------------------------------
I read in a column (sorry I don\'t recall the address to it) that said:
\'Women blink twice as much as men\'.

Well I was surprised to see this and so I wanted to test this statement out. Of course staring at your girlfriends eyes for a couple of minutes might not get the result you wanted...

So I watched the newscasters on TV, men vs. women. By golly, all the women were blinking 3-4 times more than the men! Maybe the statement was true???

But then using my chess mind I started thinking about this. And here is my idea of how this message was written as a fact:

Most women on TV wear contact lenses while the guys are fine wearing glasses. Have you ever worn contact lenses? I have. They make you blick 2-3 times more than usual!

So I don\'t think this \'factual statement\' is true, although I really don\'t know. Everytime I stare at a woman\'s eyes in the real world she runs away from me. *GASP*

Anyways, I would like to hear some \'facts\' that you have heard and if you think they are true or not. A little humor gives you a plus.

The \"fact\" that a Kg (2.2 Lbs) of chocolate contains x amount of insect parts. Total rubbish if you ask me, while there has to be an acceptable and quatative figure, no food manafucturer would risk the name of their brand by accecpting anything less then 0% insects in their chocolate. the negative publicity would cripple the business for life.-

I saw this mistake in an encyclopedia, \'The largest crabs are found off the coast of Japan and are 50 feet across.\'

Yeah, right.

I personally think that would be a very painful death. Each organ would start to suffer from lack of water and send pain signals to the brain.

If that wasn\'t bad enough - after each organ \'dies\' the body stays alive for many hours, even days.

I used to work with a very smart older guy when I was employed as an \'Industrial designer and he told me once... \'all these stupid people committing suicide... ramming their cars into concrete barriers, blowing their faces off only to be saved and live forever in deformity. If you want to commit suicide you should enjoy it!\'

I looked at his a little bewildered. \'How can anybody enjoy killing themselves\', I asked. To which he replied:

\'You take your barbecue grill into your bedroom and close the door and window. Cook a nice steak. You will enjoy eating such a great meal and shortly afterwards you will fall asleep because you did not turn the grill off.\'
