      Good one.

  • Pshhh

    #30 I see a new drug trend with stupid kids

    • GrantyAC

      'Sprouts' lol

      • Urethra Franklin

        You sproutin' Bro?

    • Ashley

      Or a bunch of kids who definitely won't eat their peas.

      • A BiPolar Guy

        I really thought this was bs, but it apparently happened to a man in Massachusetts in 2010. But it could only be a raw one as cooking is one sure way to prevent any seed from sprouting.

    • pat

      It should also say it lived through 4 centuries (18th, 19th, 20th, 21st).

      • Kiki

        Right, makes you wonder how many of the other ones are fuct up…my kid is 2 and has lied to me lol #18

      • TrueStory

        He didn't live through the 21st century though. It's not yet over.

        • ps86

          by that logic he also didn't live through the 18th

      • Marko

        Also trough two millennia

        • god

          Yeah, 250 years in a cage, yeee haaaaa!

    #7 – These are immense. Not only can you listen to different music choices if you don't like what is being played, but you can also simply take off the headphones to order a drink / speak to someone without having to shout at the top of your voice. Brilliant.

    • MikeOverHere

      It's great for losers like you who go to clubs to talk because they are too shy to dance with a girl. To those of us who aren't socially awkward and like to dance, it sucks.

      • Andy Valentine

        Tell that to my geeky redhead wife. She's always moaning at me for being a shy loser, especially when she met me watching me sing with my band as we headlined a local rock festival.


        • MylesofStyles

          Are you intentionally leaving out the part about the chloroform, or did you conveniently "forget" to mention it?

      • Doohickle

        How is wanting to talk to a girl being a shy socially awkward person? Talking to someone is socializing. Never had to dance to get the best girl I have ever met to go out with me

      • DWolf

        Even if you dance with a girl, talking is still necessary to pick her up. Shouting as loud as you can and constantly saying "WHAT?" can get irritating. If you are dancing with chicks and not talking to them at all, I have no doubt they're thinking that you are the socially awkward person.

      • Jackie

        The Chive public doesn't want you here MikeOverHere.

      • TheMoreYouKnow

        You've got that ass backwards Mike….Dance clubs are actually catered to guys that have trouble actually talking to girls….They then gain the advantage because the females are actually drunk, you don't have to say the right things because the music is too loud, and it's dark so they can't see how ugly you are, or the fact that you wear the same hoodie you've worn since high school…..MikeGoOverThere.

    • Mike Hunt

      I thought this was retarded until you wrote all of those valid points. I always hated hooking up on the dance floor with a girl and having a screaming match when I tried to talk to her later.

    • savagecabbage

      From my experience these have nothing to do with any noise ordinance laws. They're just a novelty. They're cool at festivals and stuff changing a song if you don't like it… But gets a bit weird when you take the headphones off and see what looks like a bunch of spastics dancing to silence. Being drunk is definitely a must

      • it looks dumb

        you guys sure ganged up and picked on poor mikeoverhere. the headphones seem like a nuisance, but I'm an American who loved loud music. first they take cigarettes out of bars and clubs, now they're taking music out too. sad. 🙁

  • Andy Valentine

    #15 – Didn't believe it. Googled it. Verified it.
    Well there you go!

    • MoccaB

      That's because dolphins belong to the toothed whales. Had to google it myself ^_^

    • ...

      I checked a few of these!

    • Brent

      Kind of thought this was common knowledge. Guess as a student going for a marine biology degree makes things like this basic.

    • Mustard

      Whale there you go*

    • Visitohr

      Fuck you whale!

  • Pvtdeth

    Why do they do even do these? Even the ones that are true are incomplete.

    • dodo

      Why do you even do what you do when you do it?

  • kokuryuha

    #25 well shit guess I'm screwed…

    • DDD

      actually you are then regarded as BATSHIT CRAZY

    • southbaykid

      Maybe you are just stuck in the friendzone? Not trying to be mean, just saying that it is the worst zone of all zones and make your way out of their my firend!

      • southbaykid

        there* my friend* Sorry about that, these Stone Ruination IPA's are starting to get to me lol

  • Ben

    A lot of these "WTF fun facts" are just bogus

    • Craig K.

      I feel extra dumb for not realising that until #16

      • Ben

        Uhm that one is actually true, it's because of Dunaliella salina in the lake attracted by the salt.

    • Name

      Care to elaborate?

      • lolwut

        the actuall red coloring is a type of plankton.

  • Rich

    #30 – Really? What about photosynthesis? How does that work with no light /sarcasm off/

    • kris

      As I recall, from reading something about this during my undergrad years, it can/has happened. Not like you think though, it only grows as much as it would've underground using the nutrients within the pea.

    • Jay

      Seeds do not require light to germinate/sprout.

    • ISNBH

      Same way it works underground.

    • superknowledgegenius

      Well its not gonna grow to be a full blown plant. Once it uses up the energy in the seed it would stop but it'll still sprout.

    • Well, Shit
  • Tom

    Several of these are just rubbish!!

  • AnItalianChiver

    #28 and two hearts fused together means love. <3 am I right? Now we can start a discussion about love between man/woman man/man woman/woman. No just kidding, the Pope is watching me =/

    • ConcernedCitizen

      Except the shape goes back much earlier than whatever they believe to a picture of two hanging testicles. Some of these facts are stolen from Cracked.com articles, others are debunked by them and snopes. This site sucks.

      • asdasd

        the door is over there, brah..

        Per wikipedia:

        In European traditional art and folklore, the heart symbol is drawn in a stylized shape. This shape is typically coloured red, suggesting both blood and, in many cultures, passion and strong emotion. The hearts have constituted, since the 15th century, one of the red suits in most playing card decks. The shape is particularly associated with romantic love; it is often seen on St. Valentine's Day cards, candy boxes, and similar popular culture artifacts as a symbol of romantic love.

        What the traditional "heart shape" actually depicts is a matter of some controversy.[3] It only vaguely resembles the human heart.

        The seed of the silphium plant, used in ancient times as an herbal contraceptive,[4] has been suggested as the source of the heart symbol.[3][5]

        The heart symbol could also be considered to depict features of the human female body, such as the female's buttocks, pubic mound, or spread vulva.[6] The tantric symbol of the "Yoni" is another example of a heart-shaped abstraction of a woman's vulva.

        This theory is intertwined with the true-to-life idea that the heart emerged as a symbol for love in the now lava-covered city of Pompeii. It holds for true that brothels conveyed their business via heart-shaped symbols depicting female breasts and sexual organ. This symbol reached high popularity as a motif for tattoos during late antiquity and spread quickly with the heavy seafaring of the time. Since few wanted to declare the true meaning of the tattoo it was usually explained as a symbol of love.[7]

        The heart symbol could also be derived from the shape made by swans' necks in a courting ritual, which resembles the heart shape.

        Inverted heart symbols have been used in heraldry as stylized testicles (coglioni in Italian) as in the canting arms of the Colleonis of Milan.[8]

          Man, I bet you're just a blast at parties!

    • crustybubblechunks

      The iconic heart shape is actually based on what a woman's ass looks like bending over

    #5 One does not simply make beer out of alcohol.

    • Mike Hunt

      I think it was meant to be the equivalent amount. Would of been better to say a shit ton of space moonshine.

      • Mike

        Would have been*

    • soundfilter

      Especially since that cloud is made out of Methyl Alcohol, or the stuff that's in Antifreeze.

  • socalmarti

    You had me until #30 I call bullshit on this one!

    #8 That's Yahoo, for sure.

  • TChrisB

    Ah, but if Yahoo had done that, who really thinks it would be worth that today?

    • Tyler

      That's true. Although Yahoo may be worth a bit more today without Google around to completely destroy their search traffic. We might even be Yahooing things today when we needed to know something.

  • Ispeakchive

    #11 Fun fact: Sahara means desert

  • Kirkenhoffer

    #5 That cloud consist of mostly methyl-alcohol so i would not recomend drinking that beer if you don't want to go blind.
