We need to prove some of these.... *throws cat out of plane*
@Not Patrick, there have actually been studies that cats are more likely to survive a 10 story drop than a 5 story drop (they reach terminal velocity and figure out how to land so they survive the fall, they can't do it as well at short falls bcz they are atill speeding up and mess up the timing)
I just can't believe 7, there is no way we can fit Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus (teehee) and all the others between the moon and Earth.
@18bluecat, it's some 250,000 miles between us and the moon, and considering our circumference is roughly 24,000 miles, it's pretty easy to squeeze those diameters in. May sound confusing, but these are just off the top of my head thoughts lol
@18bluecat, It's actually the one fact I've done before. It's true just add all the diameters of the planets and it'll be less than 250,000 (the distance between us and our moon)
@Daquan, jupiter alone is about 100,000 miles wide, and saturn is almost that, that is impossible
@Niam Leeson, combined, Jupiter and Saturn combine for about 150,000. I did the calculation though and because of Neptune and Uranus, they overshot by about 100,000 miles.. Lol thought it was closer. Oops!
@Daquan, i wasnt far off its still bs, like most of this stuff
@Daquan, the diameter of Jupiter=86,881; Uranus=31,518; Neptune=30,599; and all the other small planets is about 22,000. All together it would be about 158,000. I thought it wasn't true either.
@18bluecat, there isabout 238,900 miles between Earth and Moon. 8 planets put together= 205930.
238900205930. Its true.
@18bluecat, we can and there is actually room to spare
@18bluecat, I just realized there were a bunch of replies my bad
@poptartdog, but that's only when the moon is roughly at its point of greatest distance from the earth (apogee)
@18bluecat, true. Jupiter is so big you can fit all the other planets & moons in it at the same time
@DavidAwood, and it's only 86,000 miles in diameter
@DavidAwood, why are you guys arguing this when it friggin rains diamonds on jupiter!?!?
@18bluecat, LOL that teehee made my day!
Trust me, I'm a picture on the Internet
I feel as if (Jayden Smith, 2013-2014) needs to be cited on a good portion of these.
Oh my god straws have one hole!
@the one who creeps, IT FUGGIN GOES ALL THE WAY THROUGH SO ITS JUST ONE HOLE OH MY GOD
Harold Holt, the missing Aussie PM for anyone who's wondering, went for a swim at the beach and never came back
@That Lord Guy, went for a swim to Atlantis and conquered it by himself, I believe you'll find
@The Antagonist, damn, didn't read about that, I guess that makes Atlantis part of Australia then. Sweet
*brain blows to pieces*
@Glorious Grapefruit, *remix of Pop Evil song starts playing*
For #7 I just calculated it using the data given by Google, and the distance from the earth to the moon is about 350,000 km, and if you add up all the planets, EXEPT for Neptune, (or you can add Neptune and take away some of the smaller planets) they actually fit in by about 40,000 km. if you include Neptune, it overshoots the distance by about 8000km. So while #7 May not be entirely correct, it's still pretty damn close
@Captian Canada, the moon's orbit is an ellipse, so the statement is only true for around the apogee of the orbit
@Smithy2997, I wonder what would fit in the perigee.
@Josh42A, slightly less than all of the planets, ignore Mercury
@Smithy2997, now would that be enough gravitational force in one spot to move the Sol?
@Josh42A, nope, the sun is something like 99% of the mass of the entire solar system
Are you sure as troll didn't invent this just lying that its true
@Veritas, I don't know...why don't you tell us...*Veritas*
;) (sorry, just that was a little ironic) I get what you mean and you're right to be skeptical on the intarwebz, but a lot of these check out, so I don't think this is trolling.
So I like these kind of pictures but either some of them were so surprising to be or complete bull shjt.
@Anaconda Wants Bae, For example 2,8,14,21,23. Literally I don't know what 14 is trying to tell me and the others sound like they were pulled out of someone's ass..
@Anaconda Wants Bae, 2- since Maine is so far East, it compensates for its northern sway and is closer to the West coast of Africa than any other state in the US. Not sure about 8. And 14 is talking about if you took the average size between the Earth and an Atom, you'd get something the size of a speck of dust.
@Anaconda Wants Bae, also, not sure about 21, but 23 is talking about exponential growth. The width of a piece of paper to the 42nd power would equal the distance from here to the moon.
@Anaconda Wants Bae, 14 is basically saying, for example, if you put an atom in a line, and it gradually gets bigger until it's the size of the earth, a speck of dust would be the mid point of that line. Am I explaining this right? I feel like I'm not. But anyways, it's basically a size comparison.
@Anaconda Wants Bae, 21 isn't totally correct. If there are 23 people in a room there is a ~50% chance that they were born on the same day of the month. Not the exact same date.
@HashSliningSlasher, sorry man didn't mean to down vote
@Anaconda Wants Bae, 14 is saying that if you took the size of an atom and the size of the earth, a speck of dust would roughly be halfway between those 2 sizes
@HashSliningSlasher, not true, check the Wikipedia page for the birthday problem, for example with 50 people in a room, the chance of a shared birthday is 97%
Number 28 is true and disgusting I pray for anyone's who's innocence was lost due to a predator.
@CrazySam, She was Peruvian, and father was the man who did it. Disgusting indeed.
"Stripped of its status"
The Star Wars and France one is true, match.com is true, and imported camels was true. That's all I checked.
How is Maine closer to Africa than Florida
@barp, dude I'm thinking the same lol. I think that one is bs
@barp, nvr mind. Just verified that Maine is indeed the closest state to africa
How is the folded piece of paper one possible ?
@usc, if u fold it in half 42 times, it's thick enough to reach the moon.
@man eating panda, I get that part but I can't understand how a single piece of paper folded in half 42 times could reach the moon
@usc, depends on the size of the paper
@usc, know this was 9 months ago, but hey. It's kind of like if you got a job, and you started being paid with 1 penny a day. Then every day, your salary doubled. 0.01, 0.02, 0.04., 0.08, 0.16, 0.32, 0.64, 1.28, 2.56, 5.12, 10.24, 20.48, 40.96, 81.92 and so on. Before you know it, due to rapid expansion, you'll be in the thousands, and that was only doubled 13 (?) times!
Yeah does any body else realized that a man (must've been older than 13), fuxked a 5 year old, maybe even a 4 year old?
I can verify for 16 and 19. Hamida Djandoubi was the last person guillotined on september 10th, 1977. Star Wars came out May 25th, 1977.
I can vouch for number 11. His name was Harold Holt. His clothes were found on the beach, and speculation is he drowned.
I call bunk on #9. Yes, it's possible to go from Finland thru Russia to Best Korea, but you would have to go all the way around China to do it. China is kinda in the way, making it also between Finland and N.Korea
@Miss Nomer, The Russian administrative district of Primorsky Krai has a 10 mile border with N Korea following the Tumen River
What the fvck does number 23 mean
@fruflow0301, seriously Ive been thinking the same thing
Re #21: Gary Oldman had to be taught his accent after a role because he couldn't remember how he used to sound.
It doesn't rain diamonds on Jupiter. That's Neptune
The first one is only true for camel racing because Australian camels dont have palets and so can pant and breath faster without risk of chocking
I don't understand the paper one
3,7,&14 are bull, don't know about the rest
@natzu, 3 is true a family friends
@CrazySam, really it seems unsanitary and just plain stupid
@natzu, it just shrinks and is non productive. The body focuses on the new kidney and this operation is worse for the donor than the person getting the kidney. Meaning the body has to readjust to using only one kidney as opposed to two. My friend had this done is why I know
@natzu, yeah, 3 isn't always true, I've seen enough transplants to know, & if the old kidney has completely stopped functioning, they don't just leave it in there, it only gets left behind if it still serves a purpose..
@natzu, 14 is right
@barp, no unlike a atom or the earth a speck of dust would not a have a set size because a speck is not classifible
@natzu, 7 is true, They've done the calculations already and it fits with about 40,000 miles to spare. As for a "speck" of dust it varies from 0.00002 inches up to several times that size but they use the 0.00002 inches measurement for this.
Chaplin didn't lose, he placed third
@Jeremy Williams, That would be losing sweetie. *gives the you tried award*
@Tyler The Curator, so if you finish third out of hundreds of people, you lost? Are you the Asian dad?
@Jeremy Williams, he lost because it was himself i guess
What up with 23...
I'm sure some of these are BS but hey ,what isn't ?
Hey everyone, I haven't been here in about 6 months D: my funny pics wouldn't update. But I'm glad I'm back!
Isn't 24 kind of common knowledge?
Trust me I'm a random picture on the Internet
meanwhile on how gulliable tge internet is.
I laughed at number11 for about twenty minutes
Some of these are actually quite easy to believe... And some are easy to call out as false
I don't believe half of these but I'm too lazy to look them up
Time to mine Jupiter
Im still lost on number 24...
The one about sizes of dust, earth, and atoms isn't necessarily true. It depends on whether your size scale increases exponentially or linearly
The only one i dont believe is #6
I'm pretty sure number 25 is false, matches have been around for centuries.
While I am sure we can fit Saturn, Jupiter, and the others between the Earth and moon, there is one large object that won't fit...Urmomsanus
Absolute bullshjt on 6 and 7.....
I'm going to call bs on 25, people were using matches in the Victorian era.
@EmperorNoriJun, people were using lighters in the cave man era
@BunnyGruff, you just need flint. Also they didn't say a modern lighter.
@EmperorNoriJun, they mean chemical matches that you strike. Not just cut matches that have to be lit from another flame.
For those still womdering, all of these are indeed bullshjt.
Charlie Chaplin didn't lose he came third
The Nintendo one is true I did a report on it when I was in 9th grade it was a card company
#7 Is the diamond in the rough
I don't understand the folding paper 42 times fact.
