    It would be nice if the origin of the content was shared rather than doing a smash and grab.

  • EZ-PZ

    This is true if all the letters of the word are in the misspelled word and the grammar is correct.

    For the most part, these are all true.

  • Crimson K-9

    #33 That depends on which pole you are looking at, north or south….

    • Calm

      How often do you look at a globe with Antarctica on top?

  • DexLargo

    #34 I thought this one had debunked – it only works with particularly chosen words.

  • VedHead77

    #32 – <img src=http://thechive.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/google.jpg>


      i dont get it. they post a true fact about google on what Wednesday? then this b.s. these people posting stuff need to read.

    • Chivette11

    #18 Columbus was also a pot head!

    • da2conan

      The earth is pear shaped

      • Xtrememe

        Holy shit i LOL'ed at this

    • crf458

      Yea Columbus was right , the earth is actually pear shaped.

    • lonin

      George Washington was also a pot head.

      • Jesus

        Not necessarily true. He did grow hemp on his farm, but we have no knowledge of what he did with it (as hemp is probably the most versatile plant known). Abraham Lincoln, on the other hand, did admit to enjoying pot liberally. Of course, this was back in the days when cannabis was not only legal, but also considered to have many medical uses, and was well-known for its great safety profile and considered to be a more respectable substitute for alcohol. Makes you wonder what's wrong with these retards in power today disseminating their lies and claiming we're in an age of freedom of information and freedom from pseudoscience.

    • Tripunisher

      Columbus belief because of the maps of the world of Dante that if you went far enough you would find a mountain and at the top was heaven

    #1 Unlike a frogs butt which is water-tight. Otherwise they'd sink. 😉

    • KeepCalmDriveOn

      So, frogs aren't big on anal? Learn something new every day.

      • KCS24

        I'm sure they are… haven't you ever "slipped" going froggy style?

  • The Truth

    #48 Too many women have this problem

    • Gallus

      Having the problem is one thing, but I get really miffed at the gals who actually *brag* about it!

    • Simon

      Isn't overt misogyny a sign of repressed homosexuality?

      • KCS24

        I believe what you are questioning is known as "overt Gallus" which yes is a sign of repressed homosexuality…

  • LucretiusCarus

    #52 Dangerous in what sense? Like, dangerous like Shaft? He's one bad mother…

    • PDiddily420

      …shut yo' mouth.

      • LucretiusCaro

        I'm just talkin' 'bout Shaft.

        • PDiddily420

          Then we can dig it.

    • Cody Litzenberg

      I think its more the spread of disease.

    • Kmarque2

      Correction: the most dangerous animal in the world is the human. Only ones who kill for pleasure.

      • Brahma

        So do chimps.

      • Midgetized

        Dolphins as well
        Cats too

      • ChelseaRules

        Stupid people are pretty dangerous. They spread false information.

        Well, not so much "dangerous" as "annoying."

        • Yes

          Idk she might be right…maybe this should be settled in an good ol jello wrestling match? 🙂

          • KCS24

            So the most dangerous animal of all would be Jeff Goldblum then

    • MacNCheesePro
      • boobman

        I will not Google anything that has abbreviations such as .dep.anl.

    #3 Isn't the iron in our bodies of a different chemical make-up than iron metal? :-/

    • StaticFX


    • Brodysseus

      Iron is an element. It can't be different.

      • Midgetized

        Ions, how do they work?

    • Xtrememe

      Merica……. fuck yeah!!!!!!!

      • Kris

        Actually I live in the UK. Ethnocentrism FTW.

    • Andy Valentine

      But did you know that the most common metal in the human body is calcium?

    • Jose Valdez

      Of course dummy,Jaja

      • KCS24

        Andy Valentine was amazed at this fact due to the simple fact he believed bone was made from bread as the giant would declare in the nursery rhyme "Jack and the Beanstalk". We would also like to advise Andy Valentine is 56 and still lives at home with his Mommy.

    #52 please explain…

    • dochandy

      major germ/disease transmitters. they've been known to carry typhoid fever, dysentery, cholera, trachoma, and (rarely) tuberculosis and polio, etc.

      • Si1entStatic

        Exception is the Super fly, which spreads drunkenness and debauchery with a side of bewb flashing……

    • TheMoreYouKnow

      Disease. Although some animals are more deadly with venom, teeth, etc… the housefly and mosquito both transmit disease. Due to their overwhelming numbers they will kill/infect more humans than any other animal.

      • fed

        actually the number one cause of human death is the mosquito

        • coinbank

          isn't the number 1 cause of death, life?

          • Scott

            Acvtually I think the #1 cause of death is you stop breathing and your organs stop functioning, but whatever 😛

            • MC Hammer

              That's the effect of death, not the cause.

              • Mark

                I don't know man. I think if I stopped breathing and my organs shutdown I would probably most likely die.

                • sean

                  every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square… same idea

          • robby

            i thought mosquitoes were O.o

          • Mel

            But, do all those that die truly live?

        • Daisy

          One and only cause of all death is lack of oxygen to the brain.

      • Jesus

        I think the mosquito kills more, though, technically the mosquito is a type of fly.

    • Zedhere

      He's a rapist.

    • dcolbert

      I imagine it is relative. The Fly is the most COMMON vector for disease, and this disease is indirectly the cause of the most human deaths because of contact with an animal – so it is the "most" dangerous. If the flying diamond-back rattlesnake were as common as houseflies, then the house-fly wouldn't be so dangerous.

  • bridgemaster

    I'd be more upset they don't teach healthy cooking skills. Basic life skill that gets lip service instead of hands on training

  • Schadeboy

    In spite of the las time Chive tried to impress us with "facts", these actually appear to be legit.

  • Grif
