I was listening to the radio a few minutes ago and they were talking about Urban Legends.

Some of my favorite are:

Mikey the kid from the Life Cereal commercial ate pop rocks and washed them down with a whole bottle of soda and he exploded!

A lady washed her poodle and dried it in the microwave oven and you can guess the gory details.

In Florida (where I used to live) Alligators live in the sewers and get into your house through your toilet! and they eat you alive!

What's some of the Urban Legends you know and which ones are your favorite?

The John Titor story is pretty amazing, especially the years of research that people put into it, and are still putting into it.

I love the pop rocks and Coke legend, and the one about Walt Disney being cryogenically frozen. I believed it for the longest time until reading that it wasn't actually true!

That toilets flush clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern. So ridiculous and yet so commonly believed.

I like so many of them.

Neil Armstrong as a lad hears his neighbours, the Gorskys, arguing, with Mrs Gorsky saying "you'll get a blowjob the day the boy next door walks on the moon!" As Neil Armstrong jumps onto the moon he is heard to mutter, "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky."

Shoes dangling from a telephone wire indicate that there are drugs available on that street and are a warning to other dealers to stay away.

For further information on your favourite urban legends www.snopes.com is a great timewaster.

It's so widely believed that it's been mentioned in many credible sources, like text books.

I remember hearing about Bloody Mary in the second grade. For quite some time I was afraid to go near a mirror with the lights out.

Well I heard this one quite some years ago.....this guy goes into an ER (apparently this happened in the US) and wants only to be attended by a male doctor. The doctor asks him what the problem was and he points to his nether bits and says he was having problems urinating - he is obviously quite embarassed that he has a problem there. Eventually the doctor convinces him he needs to actually take his pants off so he can examine him. The doctor then takes a look and sees not only is the guy missing a testicle BUT the one that is left is looking rather black and nasty and swollen to the size of a grapefruit. The doctor decides that immediate surgery is warranted. Upon surgery, they extracted forty, rusty, industrial sized staples.

After the surgery, the surgeon had to satisfy his curiousity and asked the man what happened. The man worked at a factory. He was in his forties and a bit of a loner. At lunchtime, when no-one else was around, he had taken to getting a bit of pleasure from the vibration of one of the conveyor belts. Unfortunately this particular time, he got a bit too close to it and his whole package got severed off. He panicked, so re-attached what he could find with a staple gun! Apparently the missing testicle was never found........

Er...that IS true. It has to do with magnetism.


It isn't and even it it were, it would have nothing to do with magnetism.

I believe you'll find that I am the inventor of the Coriolis effect so I know everything about said swirling of water.

I have never seen my toilet flush in a clockwise manner nor has water ever been evacuated in a clockwise manner. Therefore I am the inventor of the acorn.

Also I am celebrating my 3000th post. Take that Hem!

I believe this will explain Monseiur Coriolis slightly better...IF YOU'RE A PHYSICS FUCK! I mean enjoy physics. That was a Freudian Slip.

Yep. You say Bloody Mary into a mirror three times in a dark room and supposedly she slashes at you through the mirror, mainly attacking jewelry laced areas.
