  • Vince

    Wow, grammar fail!!

    • Guest

      And yet, by saying, "grammar fail," you commit a grammatical error.

        • Kellen

          Fail ALL the THINGS!

        • Frank Dogg

          A Nal Scavity, your comment is not a complete sentence.

          • ILiveInSpace

            Your face isn't a complete sentence…

    • KelseyGrammarFail

      I agree, you can barely read half these things. Seriously, what the fuck, people?

    • SpacemanSpiff

      Bob's "grammer" is also "inventive"

    • Handy

      that was fucking painful to read.

    • Dave

      agreed…. who's proof reading this stuff????????

    • _Moose_

      Yes. Kelsey Grammer is inventive. Camille and his kids didn't find out his wife was pregnant until he announced it at the Golden Globes.

      my thoughts exactly hahaha

    • timok023

      Not sure if trying to make fun of the grammar in the post, or just stupid

    • vindi

      Eggs do too, takes about 2.5 min and then BOOM!

    • Racilen

      wanna try something cooler!!! cut a grape in half ( from the hole where the steam was to the base of it) but leave the skin attached. lay it in the microwave flat side down. so i looks like 2 domes. make sure they are still connected by the outer skin between the 2 "domes". turn on microwave…. you will see a flame shoot out from the skin!!! awesome!

    #13 Neither can rhinos

    #17 Also the 1st cartoon to show a married couple sleeping in the same bed

    The more you know…

    • http://youwritenext.com MacGuyver912

      The early TV sitcom Mary Kay and Johnny was the first television series to portray a married couple who slept in the same bed.

      • kodakkid

        He said the first cartoon

    • Underbaker

      Are any of these correct? For the Coca Cola company it went Coke, Fanta, Minute Maid, then Sprite.

    • HoopleDoople

      If National Geographic is to be believed, rhinos can indeed jump. Sloths, however, can not. Probably has something to do with their inability to properly stand.

  • foobar

    #8 Beware the jumping snails!

    • JOHN

      Its actually mammals not animals.

      • james

        I've seen an elephant jump once. True Story.

        • Winning!

          So you were the other person to watch Operation Dumbo Drop.

        • Doc

          And that's still wrong.

          Unless you have seen a sloth on PCP…

          • Kalutika

            Or a blue whale sprout legs and magically stop being the size of a blue wale.

      • Underbaker

        I don't think sloths can generate enough speed to jump.

  • SleepingBear

    Illiteracy is prevalent in this post….

    #12 and they're delicious too.

    • AJ R

      yum yum yum yum yummmm

  • mickdeck

    There are so many grammatical errors in this post that I almost puked.

    • http://twitter.com/GoingToBuffalo @GoingToBuffalo

      But buttersflies can tasting foods with theirs feets.


    • Groggy

      Hearing about you almost puking caused me to almost puke. And the fact that I almost puked caused this other guy to puke.

      Name that comedy team!

      • Groggy

        It was "Kids in the Hall"…"Kids in the Hall" is what we were looking for, ladies and gentleman. I award you no points.

  • myself

    #4 Wow, that's a long line. I won't even complaint that they are graphite now and not lead.

    • Kyle

      Ha. "I won't even complaint." Did you do that on purpose to match the grammar of the post?

    • Fuffeldor

      In fact, they have never been lead and never will.

    • sadman

      The lead your teacher warned you about was in the paint. That's where the shine comes from and why "chewing only the yellow part" did not save you.

  • mbugaw

    so many mistakes period. fail on the fact check.

    #8 White men can't either.

    • JOHN

      Black men can't raise their children

      • freddie mac

        Q: What can a large pizza do that a black man can't?
        A: Feed a family of four!

        Have fun being able to jump high; I'll be over here, gainfully employed.

      • mick0311

        Oh shit, that was funny.

  • Ru'

    #11 – obviously it was one of those non-English speakers who wrote this rubbish. Fail.

    • sdc

      Huh? Huh?
      This is a Chive FAIL!

      Almost all of these facts are false but I don't have time to fact check now. However, I do know for fact that there are not much more than 1 million English speakers in China. Last time I checked, the U.S. has a couple of 100 million English speakers.

      Additionally, but correct me if I am wrong, there are far more English speakers in India, France, Philippines, Germany, and Spain than there are in the whole of China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan combined.

      This stupid fact just stood out like a sore thumb!

      • Chantal

        "Almost all of these facts are false but I don't have time to fact check now."
        Riiight. Let me check them for you then.

        China has over a billion people and you don't think there could POSSIBLY be more than 1 million people who can speak English?

        There's roughly 10 million English speaking people residing in China. Their society is fascinated with the West so it's a growing trend. It's estimated that China will become the next leading nation of English speakers if the trend continues, but that would take a while.

        You're no better than the picture if you're just spewing out "facts" off the top of your head.

        • Slappy McGee

          The US has like 300 million people, so I'm not sure what you think your math shows, but it doesn't add up.

          China has over 2 billion people, first of all.

          I'm done critiquing. I don't even know where to start with this shit thread.

        • sdc

          Just for you Chantal, I researched and the official estimate is about 10 million English speakers. Sorry, I truly meant to write about 10 million (1 million was a typo). I am kind of in the know about this because of my work in China.

          Anyhow, further research indicates that this "factoid" about there being more English speakers than the U.S. is based upon the number of English "learners". This is true, there are likely more than 300 million English learners in China. But English learners does NOT mean English speaking.

          Within 10 years, I predict that both India and China will have more English speakers than the U.S.

  • Pudge

    #11 you spelled Engrish wrong 😀

    • http://www.perhac.com Peter

    Hippos and Rhinos can jump?

    • Anon

      hippos can jump 5 feet in the air from a standing position. They are the grasshopper of the fat grey animal world

    • Sean

      Whales can jump?

    • Kevin

      of course rhinos can jump, haven't you ever played donkey kong country?

  • Raws

    Not a single fuck was given about punctuation, grammar, spelling or the use of caps lock today…

    • a realist

      nor fact checking

  • Chris

    Kangaroo's can't move backwards either. It's one of the reasons both it and the Emu are on the Australian coat of arms. Isn't the Venus one just a matter of perspective? Seen from above the north pole our planet spins counter-clockwise, from above the south pole it would be clockwise. Still a nice post chive, and I'm definately buying some grapes tomorrow. 😀

    • calm

      Yes, the rotation of planets is conventionally described from the North Pole. However, Venus rotates in the opposite sense as all the other planets no matter how you look at it.

    • Meeg

      Gah! I wanted to jump in with the kangaroo fact!

      • John

        1. "Kangaroos," not "Kangaroo's."
        2. "definitely," not "definately."
        3. ":(," not ":)."

  • Anonymous

    #2 hmm… just like Gremlins eh?

  • mazurati

    #2 Gremlins too!

  • Gemma

    Yeah its spelled ‘grammar’. Not grammer.

  • eye pept

    BOB, GRammer iz az ewe sai, owe fut kit ewe sutk. mi anut sis airy end ni pewt smelz loite POOP POOP IN PANTZ

    • hannah

      Yeah, pretty funny stuff, seriously.

  • sdc


    Wrong again… both Uranus AND Venus rotate clockwise.

    • alampron

      How do you determine what clockwise is in space? Doesn't it depend on where you stand in space to observe?

      • Ra,jacket

        nope, in relation to either the rotation of the other planets ( uranus and venus spin the other way compared the rest of the planets. Or, in relation to the rotation as compared to the orbit (as the planet orbits a sun, does it go backwards aw though the "gears" were touching?)

  • Head Chef

    #7 Someone hasn't watched mythbusters!

    • M5shopkeeper

      My thoughts exactly

    • bud

      or QI

      • A BiPolar Guy

        For those who have not seen it done, it requires a piece of paper so large you need a warehouse or airplane hanger to lay it out, and a team of several people to fold it. So don't try this at home.

        • Phil

          I've folded a 24×36 sheet at least 8 times, so no need to take it to the mythbusters level

          • therealbuckfoston

            at least? in half? exactly how many times? fail…

    • Lisa

      So, ever though about what half means? I saw the Vid … they failed.

    • kevguy

      Sure, if i had a steamroller and a forklift i could fold my work desk in half. the rule is 'piece of paper', not a football field of parachute.

      • FlyingShrapnel

        still is a piece of paper

      • yesh

        youre an idiot. where is the definition of the size of a 'piece' of paper… oh wait there isnt one… so they can make it as big as they fuckin want. moron.

        • Just Sayin'

          never has one person become so angry over a piece of paper…

    • 12 times...
      • Joe

        Actually, it's 13 times:

    • Majors

      sigh, take a tissue PAPER. are usually two ply, make it one. folds eight times no problem.

  • Ben

    #7 myth busted!

    • Joe

      DOUBLE-BUSTED (it's 13 times)
