the rules are simple
a poster posts 3 "facts" and the next person has to guess which one is the correct one and post 3 more.
then the poster of the question just quotes the post with the right answer.
i'll start...

1.Cows have 4 stomachs
2.a giraffe doesnt sleep standing up
3.The Australian aborigine language has over 30 words for "dust."

I'm gonna go for 3.The Australian aborigine language has over 30 words for "dust."
Because a cow has a single stomach with 4 compartmets, giraffe's do sleep standing up like horses sometimes and there were around 200 aboriginal languages plus dialects so more than 30 makes sense.

Wow it's hard for me to come up with random "facts" that aren't true, lol

1.Forest fires move faster downhill than uphill
2.Baby robins eat over 4m of earthworms a day
3.Komodo dragons kill with bacteria in their mouthes

Well thats not techniqually true as ruminants have a single compartmented stomache but common knowledge it that they have 4 so I guess I'll let it slip, lol

2 is actually the correct fact, new research shows komodos kill with venom not bacteria

I'm sure I heard #2 somewhere.


1. The dot above an 'i' and 'j' is called a 'diddle'.
2. Albert Einstein failed math in school.
3. The holes in old sinks that stop them accidentally overflowing are called 'porcelators'.


These could be tricky! ^.=.^

Two isn't correct. Those are rumors that were perpetuated by a news source trying to discredit Einstein. It caught on, because everyone was all like "hey, if this is true, then I can feel better about not being good at math!". Einstein was actually really bright all the way through his life, and actually excelled at mathematics.

3 is correct, though. The emergency drainage outlet on a sink is known as the porcelator.

Quite right ^.=.^
It was number 3!

And I don't quite get the last one, so I'll hush on picking one of them.
