-MSG has never been scientifically proven to give people headaches.
-Dropped pennies cannot kill you.  Their terminal velocity is 30-50 mph, so a dropped penny would hurt, but not kill you.
-A flushed toilet does not rotate in the opposite direction on the other side of the hemisphere.
-Napoleon was not as short as believed.  He was 5ft 6in, which was taller than the average Frenchman at the time.
-Vaccines cause do not cause autism.  There is no scientific evidence of this.  It was fradulent research that got people thinking they do.
-Mother birds will not abandon their baby birds if touched by humans.  They have a very limited sense of smell.  But please leave the baby birds alone.
-Regrown hair isn’t thicker, which some claim it to be.  It only appears that way because of the blunt tip that is caused by cutting it.
