Unbelievable Impractical Information

art by lb
Some things are easy to believe but others not so much. Can you guess which facts are fake?

01/ A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.

02/ The indentation above the upper lip is call philtrum.

03/ The word 'Lame' means 'land of amiable moose and eels.'

04/ In Belgium, there is a museum just for strawberries.

05/ The symbol on the 'pound' key (#) is called an octothorpe.

06/ Girls have more tastebud than boys.

07/ One million cloud droplets are needed to make enough water to produce one raindrop.

08/ The only 15 letter word that can be spelled without repeating a letter is uncopyrightable.

09/ The average person falls asleep in 9 seconds.

10/ When you sneeze, all bodily functions stop ... even your heart! 



Please note: I found these facts on the web so I can't really say they are 100% accurate but they certainly seems to be true. Source: 1, 2, 3

    1. it's hard to know if that goldfish one is true, it's not like they can test the goldfishes directly for certaintly but someone must have found out somehow.

    1. you're close. #3 & 9 are fake - I make those up. #1 & 10 are probably myths.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  6. Yay! I got 3, and I suspected 9. 10 is downright scary! Do you think if you could slow down time, you could kill someone in mid-sneeze? Now there's a story idea... ;)
