This thingie.

Makes you feel gigantic and really small.

Isnt pluto technically a planet, its just called a dwarf planet.

Also the fact that Spongebob is a childrens show, seriously how did they think naming someone mr krabs who lives in bikini bottom child appropriate.

Dude, I've known that show for years, and never have I made that connection. No one I know has made that connection. I think it's not something you realise as a child.

Well then, allow me to blow your mind:

The name Bikini Bottom comes from the fact that Spongebob Squarepants lives at the bottom of an exotic laguna in the Pacific ocean called Bikini Atoll. A veritable paradise of a place, that was so nice, they named the swimwear after the island, but the Americans also used it for another purpose...

Oh, people voting Princess Diana's death as the most important thing to happen in the 20th century. Fuck.

Yeah....that ticked me off.

I still can't believe this isn't a girl.

How'bout the fact that This isn't a girl?


I find it difficult to believe that the universe has no edge.
....
HOW??

As for me... probably when you find out who voice actors are. Kaiba is Brock. Ash is a girl (both voice actors). It's crazy.

Bart Simpson is played by a woman. Really.
I still find that hard to believe. Seriously, watch an episode, while thinking about that.

Polar bears are in fact black.
It blew my mind.

Most animals work like this. Cats and dogs are almost universally pink if you want to use skin tone instead of fur color as their defining feature.

Mine is that Britian created the first computer 100 years before the rest of the world, but never finished it's creation. Imagine how different technology would be had they finished. (If you don't believe it, look up The Analytical Engine)

...then Britain never created it if it was never finished.

Creation doesn't have to imply realization. It was a fully working design, copies have been built from the design specs now without changing anything. It's just that the inventor lost funding and never got to finish constructing the first one himself, but they DO work.

Holy crap, thats the most awesome reply I've ever gotten. It was just perfect!

I have kept it for very special moments of utter death of joy. Although it does make patrick more sensible, considering his...condition.

I was going to say the whole "we eat spiders a few times a year when we are asleep" but I pretty sure that is not concrete true fact.
So I guess I go with Pluto is in fact a planet! I just feel that denining it's a planet at all, it's a like a big screw you to the Greek who discover it in the first place and Hades himself.

The spider story has often been attributed to Lisa Holst, a journalist for PC Professional, who made up ridiculous facts as examples of things that gullible people believe. Ironically (or fittingly), people later passed around the story so much that it became its own urban legend.

The fun part? There is NO EVIDENCE of the article, Lisa Holst, or PC Professional magazine anywhere outside of people citing it to debunk the spider myth. It's like an urban legend was made up to refute an urban legend. Interesting stuff.

Apparently we have like 20 senses. First time I heard that, I literally yelled "Bullshit!"...

Surface of Venus is hotter than the surface of Mercury even though Mercury is closer to the sun.

Jonluw:
There actually exists people who think critical thinking and individual thought is a bad thing.
I cannot even begin to fathom how many years of indoctrination it must have taken to create such poor souls.

I say you have ninja'd me good sir, but seriously I refuse to accept that people would want to ban the teaching of science.

uhddh:
Pluto is a planet god damn it.

I grew up calling it a planet as it revolves around a star. Why should its size matter? What if we find another planet smaller than Pluto, is that going to be called a Fetus Planet? An how about bigger planets?

The fact that objects and organisms are mostly empty space. Stupid subatomic level resistance making it so I can't walk through walls......

...they still didn't invent it. Having the idea but not being able to create it leads to other people rightfully getting the credit

Doc Slingblade:
Dinosaurs having feathers/fur. I don't care how much evidence is found on it, I simply can't get over how rediculous they look with it.

I can tolerate it for some dinosaurs, but you motherfuckers leave me my T-rex, and you bastards have the balls to call the fuckin' T-rex a full scavenger? Blasphemy.

When did paleontology become the no-fun club?

aksel:
Fucking seasons being reversed from hemisphere to hemisphere. I know it's true. I mean, the seasons are there because of the axis of our planet, relative to the sun, is some 24 degrees off. Of course the seasons are reversed.

But seriously man, summer in December. What the shit.

I remember when I grew up, I never knew the difference between seasons out there, because where we live we don't have a clear difference between them (jokingly we say we only have two: summer and autumn)
So there was always this weird disconnection between what I saw on TV, movies, books and what was really out there.

Not until I lived one full year in Germany I saw all the telltales of the seasons (snow, leaves falling, lots of rain)

That we can't figure out a cure for cancer or fix global warming or feed our entire population, but we damn sure made a boner pill. Go science!

That was actually an accident. Pills were meant for something else and that was a side effect lol.

As for me. I can't believe how mean people can get. As well as how bad kids are getting in each generation. Hell I remember as a kid growing up we treated adults with more respect. Or at least I did. When I see a child giving me the finger and swearing at me or taunting me, it takes a lot of control not to deck the kid out of anger...

That about half the voters of the SGP party in the Netherlands are women.

For all foreigners;
Think of the Taliban, or Saoudi-Arabia.
Think of their views on women.
Now change that to be Christian instead of Islamic.
Voila, you have the SGP party in a nutshell.


The SGP is an extremist religious party from the Reformist Christian denomination. They think women are inferior, shouldn't vote, shouldn't work, shouldn't hold public offices, they're also anti-abortion, anti-euthenasia, anti-secular, and also subscribe to a declaration stating that catholicism is 'the empire of the anti-christ'.

Yet, despite of them openly stating women are inferior pieces of [insert random swearwords] and they've even been taken to court and denied subsidies because of discrimination, women vote for that party, basically saying 'yes, I agree that I am dumb and inferior and deserve no rights'.


I can not comprehend that someone would ever vote that self-destructive. I know there's brainwashing and they live isolated and all that, but I still can't comprehend it.

You just need to believe in yourself.

Yes we can.

Those are lies in my mind.

That I'm more or less as dumb and ignorant, as everyone else...

PotluckBrigand:
I'd actually love to know how other people deal with it

Mark Twain said that the fear of death comes from the fear of living. That the man who lives fully is ready to die at any time.

OT: That people haven't recognised that I am their saviour. Seriously guys, you have to realise that I am your only salvation.

Laggyteabag:
That Pauley Perrette is 42

I can't believe that either, I kept thinking she was like in her late twenties or something. I guess some people really do age well, damn. o.o

Vault101:
Jennifer hale played Cinderella in the seaquels...

.....no fucking way

Jennifer Hale is awesome. I can recognize her voice anywhere. So very distinct.

uhddh:
Pluto is a planet god damn it.

Pluto is a god, planet damn it! (Totally agree tho. Pluto is a planet and no one can change that.)

I was going to say the whole "we eat spiders a few times a year when we are asleep" but I pretty sure that is not concrete true fact.

I'mma have to assume that's an average for like all people everywhere, so like Amazonian/Aboriginal/African tribes and Bear Grylls probably bring the average waaaaaaaaaaaaaay up for the rest of the world. You know, something like that.

Scarim Coral:

Agreed. Agreed(tho it was actually a dude from Kansas...). ...and agreed.
*high-five!*
HAIL LORD HADES!

TheRightToArmBears:
At some point in the past, my parents must have had sex. I just... can't accept it.

I've accepted that in my parents...it's my Grandparents who I find it hard to believe...engaged...mainly because I've never met my grand Fathers (the implications of which I'm just going to ignore)

Sex aside; deep fried Beer, Soda and, Ice Cream. I've heard the method and seen what is supposedly the evidence that such things exist but no. No, no, no, no, no. Solids become liquids by achieving low temperatures, not by being deep fried. Yes, I've read about the planet covered in burning ice on Cracked but that's something completely different. Deep-Fried beer, soda and, Ice Cream are more fake than the Bat Boy.

You need to have fried ice cream though, it's sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.
Anyway, I think they way they do it w/o melting is that the ice cream is covered in so much batter and that it was frozen at such a low temperature that it can survive being deep fried.

But anyway, back on topic, the fact that Schrodinger's Cat is a real and serious thing. I mean Jesus, really? That makes my Bluetonian Physics sound smart!

DrRockor:
I took A level physics for a year and I just didn't understand most of the stuff we were told. One of the worst ones was that if you fired a bullet from a gun and dropped another identical bullet they would hit the ground at the sametime. It's all about velocity and gravity but it just doesnt sit right in my head

Mythbusters proved that one last season.

Still weird though.

I have a hard time believing that people can figure out how to use the Internet, and yet still make research fails like thinking the Greeks discovered Pluto.

It was discovered by Americans in 1930.

Schroedinger's cat is, in fact, a paradox, that, like the Twin Paradox of special relativity, or Zeno's paradox of linear motion, exists solely to mock the theories of the day and make you think there's something more behind them. Schroedinger was pulling our collective legs.
For the record, the Twin Paradox does not take into account the ACCELERATION necessary at the far end of the trip. I can't believe in polyphasic sleep. Don't these people go nuts after awhile? Apparently, they do not....

Katamari Damacy got made it's a fun game and it was made in Japan. But WOW just WOW.

There are some really dumb things in this thread. I can't believe some of you don't know why / cannot grasp the concepts.

Someone in here doesn't understand gravity?

Seriously?

uhddh:
Pluto is a planet god damn it.

well given how many other objects are in our solar system just like pluto or larger and thus would be "planets" too you better start working on a new and very long mnemonic device to replace "My Very Excellent Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas"

We're gonna need a new one anyway, cause its either what you're suggesting or "My Very Excellent Mother Just Sent Us Nine" 0.o Nine what?

You american's say "true facts" xP

Never heard of a false fact

Viagra was banned as a performance enhancer in Irish Greyhound Racing back in 2001 (or 2003)
