Can you guess which of the following are true and which are false?

1. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the
morning.

2. Alfred Hitchcock didn't have a belly button.

3. A pack-a-day smoker will lose approximately 2 teeth every 10 years.

4. People do not get sick from cold weather; it's from being indoors a lot more.

5. When you sneeze, all bodily functions stop, even your heart!

6. Only 7 per cent of the population are lefties.

7. Forty people are sent to the hospital for dog bites every minute.

8. Babies are born without kneecaps. They don't appear until they are 2-6 years old.

9. The average person over 50 will have spent 5 years waiting in lines.

10. The toothbrush was invented in 1498.

11. The average housefly lives for one month.

12. 40,000 Americans are injured by toilets each year.

13. A coat hanger is 44 inches long when straightened.

14. The average computer user blinks 7 times a minute.

15. Your feet are bigger in the afternoon than any other time of day.

16. Most of us have eaten a spider in our sleep.

17. The REAL reason ostriches stick their head in the sand is to search
for water.

18. The only two animals that can see behind themselves without turning their heads are the rabbit and the parrot.

19. John Travolta turned down the starring roles in "An Officer and a
Gentleman" and "Tootsie."

20. Michael Jackson owns the rights to the South Carolina State anthem.

21. In most television commercials advertising milk, a mixture of white
paint and a little thinner is used in place of the milk.

22. Prince Charles and Prince William NEVER travel on the same airplane, just in case there is a crash.

23. The first Harley Davidson motorcycle built in 1903 used a tomato can for a carburetor.

24. Most hospitals make money by selling the umbilical cords cut from
women who give birth. They are used in vein transplant surgery.

25. Humphrey Bogart was related to Princess Diana. They were 7th cousins.

26. If coloring weren't added to Coca-Cola, it would be green.


Scroll down for the answers.

I did some google-searching and found that he was BORN with a belly button, but the claim is that when he died he didn't have one. Rumors state that he had had several surgeries in the area of his belly button and at some point the doctors sewed up the belly button, leaving him without one.

I'd LOVE to see MythBusters tackle some of these.

I have the funniest story to go along with #12, the one about injuries caused by toilets.

On my husband's first day on the job (the one he has now) no one really showed him around the building to make sure he knew where everything was. Well, towards the end of the day he had to use the men's room and went looking for it.

This is an old, outdated building that his workplace is in. I've never been there but he has told me the bathroom stalls have some sort of step right before you get to the biffy. He didn't turn a light on in the bathroom 'cuz he couldn't find the switch, so he goes to the bathroom stall, doesn't see the raised ledge and trips, knocking his head on the toilet! I guess he got a nice cut over his eye and broke the frame on his glasses. Another funny thing was that this business was a starter business and they didn't have Worker's Comp yet so he couldn't file a claim. What happened was his boss ended up paying him personally for the injury and later reimbursed himself through company funds.

That's a day he (and all the guys he still works with from that first day on the job) will never forget!

I read stories about "exploding sinks". Apparently a lot of people in Taiwan were leaning on the sinks when they get out of the showers and the sinks fall down. The people then thought terrorists put small bombs inside the sinks and detonated them...

Sinks and toilets can definitely be dangerous...
