10. Brain power
It has been a long living false thought that human beings only use 10% of their brains’ power. This is completely wrong, the brain functions in a very delicate manner as the right hemisphere controls the left side of the body and vice versa. This is behind the fact that, sometimes in surgical procedures, when we remove a hemisphere of the brain the patient might get paralysed in the side of the body controlled by that hemisphere.
9. Shaving makes hair grow thicker
It is totally untrue, it just happens that split hair feels softer and stubble, well, feels thick. If shaving made our hair grow thicker, then this is the long sought therapy for bold men and women. However, no shaving has ever helped anyone going bold.
8. Genitalia enlarging medications
There is no medication nor has it ever existed on Earth a pill that makes any man get larger. Also the vacuum pumps and stretching techniques, you are just torturing yourself as they do not work. The only way to enlarge your manhood is to have an enlarging surgery at a plastic surgeon’s. No need to say, it is highly expensive and painful.
7. The MSG’s evil effect on health
MSG is Monosodium Glutamate and simply it is a taste enhancer. It is not evil as the media pictures it, it is extracted from tomatoes, mushrooms and seaweed. It has first been introduced as a pure powder in 1907 and it gives food richness that can never be achieved without it. It adds the ‘savory’ element to any kind of soup it is added to. It is natural, tasty, safe and it is used by all major chefs around the world!
6. Earth population
Some eugenicists tried marketing the idea that the population on Earth now is more than half of all human beings who will ever live on Earth. That was a highly imaginative idea with zero truth about it as we represent only 6% of the 160 billion people Earth will bear in its life cycle. See, it is not that bad!
5. Plant produce Oxygen but how?!
A common mistake is that plants convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. Scientifically, this is wrong as plants turn oxygen into carbohydrates and water as a part of its nourishment. This process is the photosynthesis process and unlike what is commonly believed, it does not require light. In another process that is going on in the plant, Light is converted into potential energy. A byproduct of such a process is oxygen, some good magic there!
4. North Pole and south pole are in north and south
We are scientifically aware of the Earth’ north pole and south pole and what kind of temperature there is in these places. However it is not as easy, as neither the north pole is in the north nor the south pole is in the south. The north pole actually lies in the southern magnetic field of Earth and vice versa. To keep things more interesting these magnetic fields are in a changing conditions, that is to say, they have no fixed position.
3. The mirror’s image
Many people tried to analyse the way by which mirrors reflect our images and it has been a mess! Some thought that mirrors reverse our photos left to right and others thought that images are reversed bottom to top. Actually it is a neither nor case as the evident reflection is not even tampered with. That is indeed a hard one!
2. Glass is a liquid
In the past, glass was thought to be a slowly moving liquid. This misconception appeared when people saw the bottom side of their windows’ glass thicker then the top of the glass. They actually thought that the glass was melting. However, this only happened because of the way they manufactured glass in the past. To prove it, look at a modern window with a modern glass and you will see that this phenomenon does not exist. Glass is actually an amorphous ceramic!
1. Abraham Lincoln, the great hero!
The emancipation proclamation (1862) have long been thought to be the reason behind the emancipation of slaves. No, it is not! The proclamation was made to free slaves in place that he was not in charge of! Hence, the proclamation is worthless! It was not until 1865 when the Thirteenth Ammendment was made, that all slaves were officially free.
