I recently learned and was horrified to find out that my tongue, is not really divided into sections that taste different things.

We were all taught it; the front is sweet, the sides are salty, and the back is sour.

Well this is simply not true, you can go to any real science site and find that this is a common myth, yet they continue to teach it to kindergarteners all over the country.

This is just one site : http://www.livescien ce.com/health/060829_bad_tongue.html

but ya, this upset me..

THAT IS THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I HAVE EVER HEARD OF ON THESE BOARDS, EVER.

But seriously, that is kind of weird that it hasn't been popularly debunked by now.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

There are bigger things that they haven't told you. Like, you hear about the Holocaust yearly, (as you should) but in reality, Stalin killed, i think, about 2 million more people than Hitler killed in camps when Stalin starved his people.
Jesus for president. PM me to join the campaign. or just sig it.

Of course God has a sense of humor. Look at the Platypus...

um, i really never heard that before.



Come on?? Everyones heard that...


OH... and also another myth that everyone is heard is that no two snow flakes are alike.

Well simply not true either .

I'll give you the shortened version but here is the link http://www.sfu.ca/~science/media/snowflakes.html

Basically it depends in the context you are talking about being alike.

If you are talking structurally, then there are many snow flakes that are exactly alike,
However if you are talking on the molecular level, then of course there are no two snow flakes that are the same, but also there are no two of anything that are the same on the molecular level....

school is like that man... I stick to one saying that Einstein himself said. And he didn't even go to school. He said "Don't let teaching interfere with your education" and for those of you who cant understand. it means that you cant fully relly on the school to teach you everything, you have to just learn soemthings on your own, wether it be lessons about life, or just some simple math problem.

ya but the snow flakes one... everyones heard that...

I also once heard (Maybe it was mythbusters) that benjamin franklin really never did the electricity test with the kite and key. They said it would have killed him (And it makes since, he was holding on to a metal key during a thunder storm) but i dunno, you would have thought they would have really stopped teaching that one if its not true...
