  15. I made it through the first ten items before I stopped reading. This is the kind of list that contributes to widespread misconceptions, and general apathy-based gullibility. You need to cite sources for these claims especially because some of them are quite outlandish. Additionally, some of them are simply wrong. For example, the letter y is a vowel in the word rhythm.

  77. You should have confirmed these before you put it up. Iceland: It ONCE was illegal to own a pet dog, no longer. and your heart does not beat more than or even close to 100,000 times a day. Lets be logical about this average heartbeat for an adult is around 80 somewhere 80*24 = 1920 where the hell did you get 100,000 from. Don't make people stupid like you, don't post it unless you confirm it.

    ReplyDelete
  89. rhythm has a vowel, it is y. vowels : a,e,i,o,u, and sometimes y

    ReplyDelete
  90. The letter y is sometimes a vowel. In this word it is in a closed syllable, /i/ pronounced as a short i.
    Also technically qu is what says /cwa/, so you can't remove the q from the u. Most all English words need the qu. Scrabble will allow a few exceptions!

    ReplyDelete
  91. where are your sources?

    ReplyDelete
  92. "Rhythm" has a vowel. Y is consider a vowel in the English language.

  100. I think there is a rule which explains that in words with y and no other vowel, like in the middle of a word, the y is a vowel, not a consonant. In grade 2, or 3 we learned the vowels are "a,e,i,o,u and sometimes y"

    ReplyDelete
  153. #8 is actually two facts, which make this list 51 things (I certainly can't figure out any connection between the two). Though I know for certain that #46 is completely, laughably false, so that actually does make the list back down to 50 things.

    Not only can birds see blue (why do you think we have so many blue birds? It's certainly not to benefit the predators) but because owls are nocturnal, their vision is worse than other birds.

    I can't speak for the accuracy of most of these, but with such blatantly false "facts" like that one in here, I doubt all of them are true.

  154. 6. "Rhythm" is the longest English word without a vowel.

  155. Women blink twice as much as men? A pencil can write 50000 words! And a beetle tastes like an apple?

    I found it all very fascinating. :) In fact I am actually feeling more energetic after reading all those facts!

  162. Hey great interesting useless information. Good post

  163. I really doubt number 42 is true. Did they even have gum 9000 years ago?

    ReplyDelete
  164. 41 is untrue, Mythbusters proved it.

    ReplyDelete
  165. #41 is untrue, Mythbusters have proven this.

  166. Seriously, how do we know that only owls can see in blue?

    ReplyDelete
  167. lots of this is not true.
    Bentham is somewhere else, Hitler was, I am told, not a vegetarian, the testicle thing also spurious. lots of these are either mundane or undesirably verifiable...

  168. May of these 'facts' are in fact myths. For example no. 10, there is no Rome in Australia or New Zealand nor is there any Rome in Antarctica.

  169. how about "rhythms?"

    ReplyDelete
  170. Number 11 is incorrect! Ofcorse you can have a pet dog in iceland, its not against the law. I know so because I live there.

    ReplyDelete
  171. There is another 6 letter word without vowel. SYZYGY

  172. Hi,

    The 4 is wrong. I'm french and "english kiss" doesn't exists here. We use "french kiss" too.

    ReplyDelete
  173. number 11 is a lie. I live in Iceland and I own a dog. So do my friends, and there is nothing illegal about it :)

    ReplyDelete
  174. number 36 is wrong, there are planets outside our solar system which are called by numbers and letters, not after gods

    ReplyDelete
  175. I was gonna say that this is 51 things everyone should know because #8 has two facts in it, but then I saw #41 and know it is false so I guess it evens out.

    ReplyDelete
  176. you can sneeze with your eyes open. Mythbusters did it.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Dear whoever wrote #37,

    Uhh, I live in Nebraska, and it's definitely not against the law to burp or sneeze in a church. Get your facts right.

    Sincerely,
    All Nebraskans

  178. A lot of this is not true.

    I don't know the point of posting false information like this. Doesn't it make you personally feel like an ass?
    Did you learn this information from the bottom of Snapple caps?

    Don't believe everything you hear.

    ReplyDelete
  179. # 6, the letter "y" can be used as a vowel, remember: A E I O U and sometimes Y.

    Actually, most of these are pretty suspect.

    ReplyDelete
  180. It's not called an English Kiss in France. They just call it a kiss. A French woman told me this.

  186. 51. Your mom gave birth to you

  187. ummmm, two things.
    The current population of the earth is closer to 7 billion. And chinese is not a language. Mandarin and Cantonese are languages (Mandarin is one of the official languages of the UN, Cantonese is not).
    It only takes these two things for me to question all of them. Before you write something, you should really do better research.
