Their result for The Myths Test ...

Mr Above Average

You scored 73 % for your myth knowledge

Oooh well done, you scored higher than most people, and you've got the knowledge to defend your mind from the invading hoardes of lies, but your not completely immune to the ways of the bullshitter. Now for the truths behind the myth The myth: You can get arthritus, from cracking your knuckles This is in fact complete rubbish. The roots of the myth are undetermined, but that doesnt matter, crack on you crazy diamond. The myth: Hitler was a vegetarian This again is untrue, he was commonly know to eat ham eggs and mineral water for his lunch The myth: Coca cola was originally made using parts of the cocaine plant This is actually true, although the flavouring had to effect on the drinker, it did come from the cocaine plant, the production was carefulle monitored by the governemt, and the flavourent is now no longer used The myth: Raw meant should never be eaten This is a half truth. Raw meant itself is fine to eat, but the flesh at the surface is likely to carry germs from being transported, so the outer most layer must be removed or cooked for it to be safe The myth: The water drains away (or flushes), in a different direction, depending on where you are on the earth This is one of the biggest phoney myths ever, and is probably thanks to the simpsons episode on the subject. The direction of the water depends on the shape of your sink, the amount of water, and many other tiny factors The myth: When you have a cold, you should consume things rich in vitimin c, such as oranges, orange juice, and strawberrys Wrong, it has no benefits to your health when you have a cold, but for some reason vitimin c, just makes you feel good inside The Myth: William Shakespeare was gay This is actually false, most people assumed, since he wrote so many poems, idolising young boys, and commenting on their beauty, it was perfectly acceptable at the time, and was not considered gay. Willian later had a relationship with his famous "Dark Mistress".
