Something to read and ponder...

In today's covid denial world I thought I would offer a few more topics to discount.

    Didn't read, but just came in to disagree.

    Finally read it.  It is worse than I thought.  Disney hurled a bunch of lemmings off a cliff for "effect" in one of their nature videos.  Wtf @lousubcap .

    I read them all.  I didn't see the debunking of how hair can grow on your palms, so I'll just assume that one is true.

    I'll have to ask an expert.  @JohnInCarolina any insight here?

    Mine are indeed pretty hairy but I’m pretty sure that’s just because I’m a werewolf.

    So that's how to become a werewolf.  I always wondered about that.

    Those are all pretty dumb things to believe.  The one about scientists not understanding how bees fly made me laugh.

    Totally unrelated: anybody know where a guy can get rib surgery?


  • dbCooperdbCooper Posts: 639
    They state in the question Daddy-Longlegs are spiders, then do not correct that myth.  Only six legs is the giveaway.
    What about Raquel Welch, did she have ribs removed?    Mr. Manson, I don't care so much about if he did.  Like him for his intellect.

    Reminds me of that Kirk Cameron video that was circulating years ago, in which he and some other clown were describing the banana as an “atheist’s nightmare.” 😂

    Ask Marilyn Manson.  I think he had a guy.  Korn might know too, but not sure if that was their thing.

    It used to be you could (rumored) at 4500 Magazine St in New Orleans.  But it's since been converted to office space.

    Yep.  And recording studio that everyone has played at.  Re-purposed funeral home.  Spooky.

    They also mistakenly say that Longlegs/spiders are poisonous. They're wrong. Some may be venomous - venom is injected, poisons are ingested.

    If you eat venom does it become poison?

    Dunno. Somebody should ask Dr. Science. After all, he has "a Master's Degree... in science!"
