I don't believe that shit about stretching.
I hate the one about shaving makes the hair grow back thicker. Shaving doesnt make more follicles grow, dummies
Oh, I thought this was related to Black History Month and all the stuff that was allegedly invented by blacks.
Oh well, the one myth that I hate is that MSG is bad for you. It's a load of bullshit, and it makes food taste delicious.
Nobody ever said Napoleon was short for his time, just that he was short. 5'7" is short. QED.
Also, I always knew the dog year thing to just be a rough estimate based on their life phases. Meaning that if a dog reached maturity at around 2-2.5 years, then you could kinda roughly translate that to a 7:1 ratio. The same applies for lifespan (more like 5:1 or 6:1 but whatever).
Also, people in South Korea believe that leaving a table fan on overnight can kill you. So much so that fans there are sold with warning labels and have automatic shutoff functions.
Same with aspertame.
I could have sworn I saw this list on Cracked at some point in time, then I googled it and there were no less than three similar articles on the first page.
I always though the 'losing 98% of heat through your head' thing assumed that you would already be wearing proper cold weather clothing, except for a hat. If properly insulated otherwise, the number seems pretty plausible.
That's what I figured also... 98% of it leaves through your head if the rest of your body is insulated with clothing (as it usually is on a cold day, unless you're camping with KyleDriver).
Not a good day for THP. Another LIE uncovered in his stories.
Next he's gonna tell me there's really no Mama Haystacks.
Stretching afterward is better for you. It helps start loosening up your muscles once you've worked out and helps the release of lactic acid build up so you don't cramp or get overly sore.
I'm not a doctor.
Yup, after the workout is more important than before, but both help.
I'm not a doctor either, but I did jerk off to nurse porn earlier today.
Warming up before working out prevents injury. Warming up is not the same as stretching. I always thought stretching was pointless.
I don't believe the whole "muscle weighs more than fat" theory.
It's more dense. Why wouldn't it weigh more?
My 15 month old has barely had any sugar ever, and only in small doses. On Valentines day he got a giant cupcake and giant lollipop. He was a fucking monster like I'd never seen, you not telling me sugar doesn't affect kids.
My boy had only titty milk and one piece of raw antelope meat when we were butchering in the kitchen, until his first birthday. We slid a cake in front of him and he went to town on it and was out of his fucking skull until midnight.
