Facts you likely had no clue were the absolute truth (30 Photos)


  • SOhioChiver

    #23 But the US government and its military provides Freedom to millions throughout the world while Apple charges an arm and a leg for every piece of crap thing it sells.

    • Toxic

      Plus Apple moved it's headquarters overseas (on paper only) to avoid US taxes.

    • heywood jablowme

      and apple users have an undeserved sense of superiority.

    • ToBeFair

      While the US government is involved in a lot of things, Apple has done more over the past 20 years to advance us as a people than any government.

      • wdh

        yea.. advance us to laziness.. and apple does not give me health insurance.. they are a bunch of thieving bastids..

    • AndEp

      Freedom????? Wtf, how many people(innocent) did the us kill last year alone. The us may be a staple of the world as we know if, but with little research your gloriously country is a savage lieing bully whom goes into war and does not give a hoot about its own people or others. Unless your name is money power oil junior. Ps I don't want some bitchy pro American response, I'm not insulting the Americans, just the praise given earlier.

      • team america

        foreiner fail, america has beer boobies and happy hour to bring them together your argument is invalid

  • Educated Yourself

    Just so most of you idiots know, none of these are factual. You are being informed by a company of weak minded fools, don't believe everything you read.

    • Mikey

      It's all a conspiracy of the lizard people!!!

    • lols

      it is coming from the same people who were fooled by daveonwheels

    • rio

      Hey doc its just all in good fun…. Don't take fun from the lives of others. Smile more, live happy and chive on.

    • No, Educate YOURSELF

      taking your advice, no one should believe you either.

  • Tx State Chivette

    Love you Chive ❤

  • Rubik5cube

    #9 should be made into a movie 😉

    • MOAR

      See Nic Cage's IMDB page.

      • cynic

        Way to advertise your cheap knock-off site on the site your knocking-off, chivers aren that stupid

    • DJ Tanner

      i think nicholas cage is available

    • Josh

      It could happen….

    • Brian

      It was. Nicholas Cage, Bridgette Fonda, Rosie Perez.

      • Nala

        Seriously? You answered that with that?

        • rocky

          Seriously, the movie is called "It could happen to you." It is about a Police Officer who shares his lottery winnings with a waitress: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110167/

          • SingleBrokeFab

            Hahaha, have some of you never encountered sarcasm before??

    • Pretty Smile

      More explosions!!!!!

  • Johnny Chimpo

    #23 ….so do i, and anyone else who isn't in trillions of dollars in debt

    • Nick

      Yeah, this one is misleading. The notion of "money" is too vague. You would have to be an idiot to believe Apple has more capital than the US government. It's not even remotely close.

      • Grant

        Thank you, Nick. I read this entire page and stopped to comment on this one, and you did so perfectly. I wish that people (read: voters) would take an economics class before making conclusive (and absurd) comments about the debt situation of the U.S. government.

      • Derp

        Hmm securities minus liabilities? Apple wins hands down.

    • Curtis

      one thing is for certain – Apple would be out of business if it had politicians running the company.

    • Firefighter23

      Why does Obama look like a white man? And why is he asking Zombie Steve Jobs for money?

      • White Man

        What, a white man can't ask for money?

        • Firefighter23


  • Meh

    #28 You are da man!

    • Harry Longbahls Jr

      There is no way this is true. Most those people would drown before he got to all 20 of them at 30+ ft.

      • Segrus

        This is a true story. Look it up on the Internet.

        • brandon

          because everything on the internet is absolutely true

      • Wisti

        I suspect that all 20 weren't unconcious so really they just needed some assistance, not actually dragging all of them out and if he's in shape 30ft wouldn't take too long to get down and then back up. It takes over 4 minutes before you can't be saved from lack of oxygen.

      • Boo

        There could have been an air pocket in the submerged bus, and the people only needed a guide to help them find the way out and up.


    #30… Challenge Accepted.

    • MOAR

      I'll start with the Kate Upton videos, you start with Skip Bayless.

    • Dr_StrangePants

      You could probrably subtract 3 hundred years for all the repeat links though

    • jr.

      I have better things to waste my time on!

    • MonkeyMadness

      300 of those years you would spend getting Rick rolled.

  • Alan

    Nic Cage did that movie with Bridge Fonda

    • tv_paul

      A lobster tail of two cities?

    • Alan


      Ok I goofed

      • tv_paul

        Its okay, I just couldn't resist. If you want to be able to fix mistakes you should set up an IntenseDebate account. If you see something wrong (Picture or misspelled word) you can go back in and change it as long as nobody’s already commented on it.

        • MonkeyMadness

          That would make too much sense. People revel in their laziness.

    • chiveadmin



  • tv_paul

    #24 I would have failed this test nightly.

    • Miles

      Gandhi did too.

    • Veritas

      It's pretty interesting stuff. Give it a good research. Much of his sexual perversions have been erased in order to elevate him to some status higher than he really was, but enough evidence remains and there have been some interesting articles about Gandhi's supposed 'chastity.'

      The dude was a legendary pacifist and human rights advocate, but he was kinda a hypocrite about sexual abstinence.

    • Hrdwood

      I fail this test every night… and I sleep alone.

      • tv_paul

        It's a good thing he kept Resolve by his bed to clean up any stains or messy spills,

    • DaddyD

      I have seen more than a few Indian girls who would not test my resolve.

      • tv_paul

        Aishwarya Rai Bachchan…..yummy

      • Daniel Tosh

        Sunny Leone hot indian

    • Shackleford

      Nightly? Shit, I'd "sleep" three of four times a day. AT LEAST!

    • Luke

      Shoulda just got married… then he woulda never had to worry about it..

  • dan

    #15 Priorities! Brits have them.

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      It's actually just a water heater but this is funnier.

      • tv_paul

        “It’s acceptable to bend the truth in order to inject Humor into a situation” I think this either an Oscar Wilde quote or something I read on a Popsicle stick. (Or I just made it up)

    • Dr_StrangePants

      Oil and Fuel?
      ☑ Sir
      ☑ Sir
      Earl Grey?

      Excellent. Forward!

      • Bdrizzle

        lmao! Good call – this had me rolling

    • P90

      It's called the 'BV' (Boiling Vessel) and it's used to boil MRE's as well as hot drinks.

  • Craigery

    What's the over-under on how many of these are ACTUALLY true? I'd say it's about 15.

  • 29er

    #22 I'm not saying give your kidneys away, but if everyone lived with this mentality, the world would be a great place. Try it today, live with humility and help those who need it, even if you think you are better than them. Once you do not help them, how then, can you consider yourself better than someone who would?

    • chiveadmin



    • Andrew

      It is a noble idea, but the speaker of this quote may have gone a bit too far. His name is Zell Kravinsky, and he has no relationship with his wife or children or really any other relatives because of his stances on donating himself to the world. Yes, he should be celebrated, he is helping others, but I hope his story also allows people to see the need for balance. Live with humility and help those who need it, but not at the consequence of losing your family.

    • Innovation

      This isn't from an episode of House is it? They had one like this saying the exact same thing a couple years back.

    • Shackleford

      Yeah, the guy who did this made his family suffer from his "humility" and they left him. I believe people in this would should go out of their way to help each other in any way possible, but you still have some moderation in your decisions. It's also hard to help people because most either don't want it, believe you are trying to hurt them, or do take the help but take that help for granted. However, those still aren't that good of reasons not to help your fellow man. Just be careful and watch your back because you can't trust everyone.

    • Guest

      Why do you need to consider yourself better than someone else?

  • jbcrazylife

    #23 so since i'm only $435 in debt, hell I have more money than the federal government!!

  • childishgambino

    absolutely brilliant!! love #3

    • MN Expat

      I've actually always wondered how they handled that. I know that astronauts have great resolve and all, but you can't tell me ignoring an itchy nose and refusing to take off your helmet wouldn't take every ounce of strength you had.

  • that guy

    #1 you also wouldn't be able to stand up

  • Simon

    Two other facts that you probably should know…

    – icon overlays on images obscure facts that you're trying to convey
    – I still don't like Bob's avatar. And not in a jokey "get outa here" kind of way.

  • Med

    Best drawing of Obama ever.

  • Chris

    #30 Challenge accepted!

    #2 Oxytocin is also released to make breast feeding possible and at the onset of child birth to cause contractions.

  • pufffdragon

    #5 Scientists don't know why we sleep?? Yet the rest of the human race does. Seem Legit this one

    • Chooch

      pretty liberal use of the word "facts" on this post, me thinks.

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      It's so we can dream and escape the mundanity of reality.

      The inventor of a dream controller will be a trillionaire.

      • Mike

        I swear I thought that's what reality tv shows were for.

        • davo

          reality tv is the stuff of nightmares.

    • Lauren

      They don't know what sleep does to us. We know the effects of sleep (feeling better, more awake, and more alert), but there is no scientific explanation, other than "because we get sleepy" to explain why our bodies feel the need to sleep.

      • SirCtheIII

        Actually, our sleep allows our body to shut down and repair itself. Ever spent a few days awake? You get sore, wounds heal more slowly, and your cells cannot produce energy needed to complete basic functions.

        As far as cognitive function: during the time awake, the brain has very different patterns (duh). It is taking in what you see, hear, feel, taste, etc. and strengthening the neural pathways that have previously formed in relation to the new information. When you sleep the incoming information is lessened (you likely won't wake up to light wind, as opposed to a gun shot) and the brain begins processing information and consolidating your memories (read:daily information). Without sleep your memories are barely, if at all, processed.

        Any "scientist" that doesn't have solid reasons for sleep other than being tiredshould find a new career.

    • Shackleford

      We sleep so that our subconscious can have time to "reset" itself to all the abuse people put it through in a day. If you have problems sleeping, you usually have problems gripping reality and suffer from depression and anxiety. (I know this personally.) We grow sleepy because our bodies are used to a sleep regimen that our internal clock set for us. Also, if we are physically drained, sleep helps our muscles relax so that they can heal faster. Work a physically demanding job for 12 hours a day (like I have most my life) and you would understand this. I think scientists just put TOO much thought into why we sleep because the answers lie in front of us.

  • drewdeze

    *sigh* my worst fears have come to fruition, ebaumsworld was right

  • KCO617

    #9 made me smile, more people need to have this mentality. Money<Character

    • AnyoneForCoffee

      They should make a film about that!…

      • KCO617

        I can see it now….good cop meets troubled single mother waitress…has no cash for tip but promises to split winning on lottery ticket. He hits for $6MM and splits with her…but there is a twist, she has actually been the leader of a meth ring in NYC. He must take down the very woman he once helped out of the kindness of his heart. Still a working title.

        • Bill

          Or they could call it "it Could Happen to You" and cast Nicolas Cage and Bridget Fonda and Rosie Perez and play it on TNT every year around Christmas time.

          • Craigery

            I like the part where Bridget Fonda makes Nic Cage wear a bee-filled cage on his head.

          • KCO617

            I wanted to ignore the Nick Cage piece of this, ignore the fact it was already a movie, and make a new edgy action film.

          • AnyoneForCoffee

            Bless you for finally being allowed to use a computer, Bill.

    #24 Bet it would have been tougher if the GIRLS had been naked.

    Silly Gandhi.

    • nvi

      Sleeping naked next to young girls is creepy as fuck. If you tried this anywhere that's not India I'm pretty sure you'd end up in prison or dead.

      • http://euroranger.wordpress.com/ Euroranger

        Guess whose definition of "young" is "less than 18" and whose isn't?

        • nvi

          "young" to me is 15 or less. 16 is age of consent where I live (Michigan) so anything less than that would be, in my mind at least, "young"

          • http://euroranger.wordpress.com/ Euroranger

            It's times like this that I'm simply glad my life doesn't require me to know what the age of consent is in my neighborhood.

            Mind you…until a moment ago I was equally ignorant that Michigan had an age of consent for sleeping.

    • Scumbatticus

      Leave the guy alone, not like he knew how it worked

    #9, wasnt that that Nick Cage movie?
