Urban Legends Reference Pages

This is an excellent site that exposes many "facts" as simple urban legends. I recommend that everyone check it out. I would especially recommend the Science and Quotes sections.

Some well-known myths:

The Coriolis effect causes toilets to flush clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern.

We only use ten percent of our brains.

Hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.

The Great Wall of China is the only man-made object visible from the moon.

A Julius Caesar quote which warns people to beware leaders who "bang the drums of war."

Albert Einstein embarasses an atheist professor.

You must sign a petition to stop Jesus from being portrayed as a homosexual in an upcoming film.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.
