Urban legends that a lot of people think
They’re horrible, they’re not true. in fact, they spread faster than a rash during sleep. We live in a world strange enough for most urban legends seems completely believable, but even the most superficial of the search can disprove most of the evil stories about Unfortunate Events. Unfortunately, many people still see email forwards, memes, hasty Wikipedia edits as proof positive that many of these surreal and scary stories are true. Here are a few of the realism, urban legends, modern and otherwise, that people still believe.
Coca-Cola dissolves flesh and bone
E-mail to the forward that existed nearly as long as dial-up AOL makes a lot of extraordinary claims about Coca-Cola, including the idea that police officers use soda to clean blood from highways after accidents of vehicles, that cup of cola will dissolve a whole tooth (or meat, depending on the version of the front) overnight. While it’s true that Coke contains a very small amount of corrosive acid, is much less than your very own stomach contains. Soda is not the healthiest thing in the world to any part of your body, but it definitely won’t melt flesh like some kind of sci-fi globe of the unit. Explain.
Daddy Longlegs will kill you if they can
No one doubts whether or not harvestman spiders are creepy (they are), or if Demon Souls to power must go straight to hell (should be), but at least they’re not at all toxic. While you still need to be justifiably terrified of the common brown recluse, black widow, and hobo spider that maybe all the conspiracy together in your shoes now, daddy longlegs can do you any harm. Legends state that the harvestman is the most venomous spider, and that the jaws are simply too small to get to you—but this is not true. They’re not interested in chomping, they don’t have sky and don’t even fangs.
Days of darkness
One every few years, the rumor spread that the land will be plunged in a week or so of total darkness, and if you think this please quickly seal yourself in the shelter and we will tell you when safe to get out. Spoiler alert: we’ll get you there. While it is true that some specific parts of the earth do not see the sun for a few months every year, because of how the planet is positioned relative to the sun, it’s definitely not a phenomenon spread all over the Earth, it is certainly not due to solar storms, as some rumors state. Your solar-powered calculators will forever remain operational.
HIV in blood orange
When nosophobia and xenophobia to meet, it’s not a beautiful thing. For a few years, people have been circulating a photo alleging to show an orange that has been injected with HIV in the blood, presumably imported from Libya or Algeria or any other country that the average American knows nothing about. All of this orange just happens to Be Blood Orange. Basic biology disagrees with just about all this virus just can’t survive outside the host body, so will not survive in the human stomach, even in the worst case scenario. Orange you glad you know this now? Sorry.
Reverse PIN number
In Don’t help the meme that had been floating around for almost ten years, and he claims that if you enter your ATM card PIN to the back, you will be able to immediately call the police to your location. It is assumed that this work would be useful if you’re forced to withdraw money at gunpoint, but unfortunately it’s just not true. While systems similar to this has been limited to a patent, even before the rules committee that remain completely optional for the banks to use, according to reports, the bank has adopted the measure. Only the best delivery of cash to people.
If you see a car at night without headlights and give them a little courtesy Flash to let him know they will turn around and kill you as part of a gang initiation. This ritual is attributed to the blood, or crime or unnamed London street gangs, but wherever the language, this is not true. The myth helped along a bit by an accidental email forward within the police departments all over the world, but there have been no reported cases have killed people on a common policy of courtesy, thus preserving the type.
Knights in the service of the devil.
Even today excessive Crusaders claim that the pop and rock music are tools used by Satan to indoctrinate the young in the ways of the East, but old Nick seems to find its way to everything in the ’70s and’ 80s. While edgy bands deliberately participate demonic images in the album art and the music and Gene Simmons deny the devil on the stage, at no point did the band name “kiss” ever stand for “Knights in Satan” at the same time, Simon and theology major, did not do much to dispel the rumors, as he’s enjoying the publicity as well as inconvenience to people. Regardless of the reason, the name of a kiss is still better than the original band name to score the bad guys.
Zuckerberg file myN
If you share this photo, Mark Zuckerberg may give you a few million dollars personal thank you on the use of the social networking service and share photos of your ugly baby. After all, what’s a few million to a man worth 36 billion dollars? Zuckerberg is now the subject of my very own fairy tale, powered by the very platform of the misinformation that helped create. Usually, Facebook users get a message filled with the standard Facebook PR terms, indicating that his account has been specifically chosen for the huge prize, but he’s actually just trying to get rid of the bank information from users and scare grandma.
