    An opinion is a belief based on anything other than fact. You cannot prove wrong anything beyond that of fact.

    I'm off to have a bath. Baths are relaxing. Go on, prove me wrong.
    Baths aren't relaxing.

    A man cant rape another man. The correct term is "Buggery".

    If a person hands money over to someone demanding it its not theft
    But if the other forces it out of the other person (ie grabs it) it is

    -The Pilgrims did not dress only in black, nor did they have buckles on their hats or shoes.
    -When a person is arrested in the United States, there is no legal requirement that the police must "read him his rights" (i.e. give a Miranda warning), either at the time of arrest or anytime thereafter. The failure to give the warning will merely preclude the prosecution from using a confession (or other incriminatory statement) against the defendant; it will not preclude the criminal prosecution itself and it is possible that the defendant may be convicted without any introduction of an unwarned confession into evidence.
    -There is no dark side of the Moon; every part of the Moon's surface (except perhaps deep craters near the poles) is illuminated by the Sun roughly half of the time. The phrase uses the word "dark" in the less-frequent sense of "unknown" or "obscure" to refer to the far side of the Moon, which because of tidal locking is never visible from Earth.
    -Black holes, unlike the common image, do not act as cosmic vacuum cleaners any more than do other stars.[48] When a star evolves into a black hole, the gravitational attraction at a given distance from the body is no greater than it was for the star. That is to say, were the Sun to be replaced by a black hole of the same mass, the Earth would continue in the same orbit (assuming spherical symmetry of the sun). Due to a black hole's formation being explosive in nature, the object would lose a certain amount of its energy in the process, which—according to the mass–energy equivalence—means that a black-hole would be of lower mass than the parent object, and actually have a weaker gravitational pull.
    -When a meteor lands on Earth (after which it is termed a meteorite), it is not usually hot. In fact, many are found with frost on them. A meteor's great speed during entry is enough to melt or vaporize its outermost layer, but any molten material will be quickly blown off (ablated), and the interior of the meteor does not have time to heat up because rocks are poor conductors of heat. Also, atmospheric drag can slow small meteors to terminal velocity by the time they hit the ground, giving the surface time to cool down.
    -Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker or coarser or darker. This belief is due to the fact that hair that has never been cut has a tapered end, whereas, after cutting, there is no taper. Thus, it appears thicker, and feels coarser due to the sharper, unworn edges.[69] Hair can also appear darker after it grows back because hair that has never been cut is often lighter due to sun exposure.
    -Snapping or cracking one's knuckles does not cause arthritis.
    -Sugar does not cause hyperactivity in children.
    -Eating at night does not cause any more weight gain than eating the same amount of food during the day.
    -The indigenous people of North America can grow facial hair, contrary to the misconception that they cannot.
    -It is a common misconception that sleepwalkers should not be awakened. While it is true that a person may be confused or disoriented for a short time after awakening, it is actually quite dangerous to not wake a sleepwalker as they may injure themselves if they trip over objects or lose their balance while sleepwalking. Such injuries are common among sleepwalkers.
    -Humans cannot catch warts from toads or other animals; the bumps on a toad are not warts.
    -The claim that a duck's quack does not echo is false, although the echo may be difficult to hear for humans under some circumstances.
    -Lemmings do not engage in suicidal dives off cliffs when migrating. They will, however, occasionally, and unintentionally fall off cliffs when venturing into unknown territory, with no knowledge of the boundaries of the environment. The misconception is due largely to the Disney film White Wilderness, which shot many of the migration scenes (also staged by using multiple shots of different groups of lemmings) on a large, snow-covered turntable in a studio. Photographers later pushed the lemmings off a cliff.
    -Albert Einstein's position on God has been widely misrepresented by people on both sides of the atheism/religion divide. In truth, Einstein was neither religious (in the traditional sense) nor an atheist. He did not believe in God in a "personal" sense and discounted the existence of a creator; rather, he was a rationalistic pantheist.Many people misinterpreted his words in public, to which Einstein himself responded by saying: "It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it." (this one is because I saw someone say that Albert Einstein was religious in another thread)
    -Nowhere in the Bible is the fruit eaten by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden referred to as an apple.
    -Nowhere in the Bible is Mary Magdalene ever referred to as a prostitute.
    -Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb (Joseph Swan did).
    -George Washington Carver did not invent peanut butter, although he developed many other uses for peanuts.
    -Charles Lindbergh was not the first man to fly the Atlantic Ocean, although he was the first to have flown across it solo.
    -Toilet waste is not dumped overboard in aircraft. All waste is collected in tanks which are emptied on the ground by special toilet waste vehicles. A vacuum is used to allow the toilet to be flushed with less water and because plumbing cannot rely on gravity alone in an aircraft in motion. (Joe Dirt anyone?)


    Well... that's good enough.

    -The Trojan Horse story was not in Homer's Iliad, or Odyssey. It comes from Virgil's Aeneid.
    -Thomas Crapper did not invent the flushable toilet.
    -Despite the claim in one episode of The Simpsons, the Coriolis effect does not make any difference to which way water flushes down a toilet or drain.
    -The speed of light is not always constant. It is only constant in a vacuum.
    -Sherlock Holmes never said "Elementary, my dear Watson" in any of Arthur Conan Doyle's novels.
    -Most educated people of Columbus' time knew the Earth was round. The reason he has trouble finding funds was because most people believed Columbus was underestimating the size of the Earth (they were right).
    -Duck's quacks do produce echoes.
    -Einstein was not bad at maths as a student.
    -Bulls do not hate the colour red.
    -The British monarch does not use the phrase "Arise, Sir ____" when a person is knighted.
    -Objects in "zero" gravity do not move in slow motion.
    -Although in reality, there is no place in the Universe with true zero gravity.
    -The second law of thermodynamics does not disprove evolution. It only applies to closed systems.

    ^I'm just guessing here, but I think arthritus is caused by a breakdown of the cartilage (sp?) between two joints, and cracking your knuckles would presumably not do any more damage to your cartilage than any other movement of your fingers.

    Good thread, Napalm.

    My biggest annoyance is:
    -There's no such thing as exercises that specifically help "tone" your body. The word was created by a comination of the media and personal trainers telling people what they wanted to hear. The only way to tone your body is to lose fat and build muscle, and besides the pace at which you achieve that "tone," there's really no difference whatsoever in exercises. If anything, exercises that claim to "tone" your body are probably less efficient than standard muscle-gaining exercises.
    -There are not exercises that make you "big" and "muscular" and there are not exercises that make you "trim" and "toned," there are only exercises that are more efficient and less efficient. Women, I'm looking at you on this one.
    -Creatine is not a steroid.
    -Steroids do not create muscle, nor do they make muscles grow.
    -Increase in muscle mass and increase in strength are not equally proportional among different people.
    -It is not possible to target different sections of a muscle (the biggest case for this is the chest, where everyone is told that incline bench targets the top of your pecs and decline bench targets the bottom).
    -Abdominal exercises are not particularly efficient in weight loss. If anything, the muscle that you'll gain from doing such exercises will build underneath the fat and make your stomach protrude even further.
    -There is no possible way to spot-reduce fat. Fat is removed from your body in the opposite order that it was gained. Always.
    -There are no exercises, routines or substances that are good for "shaping" or "forming" muscle, and you can't tell that someone uses steroids by the way that their muscles look. The way the way that your muscle is defined is part of your genetics.
    -Although age determines the amount of HGH your body produces, it's completely possible for someone of any age to develop significant new muscle. Many cases have been reported of elderly people that could scarcely walk beginning routines and ending up easily being able to move about.

    That's all I can think of.

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd
