    Of course, not all of these “facts” are useless — and not all of them are facts. For example: “impossible to sneeze with your eyes open”? Point me to the proof of that one — or just try it for yourself.

    anyone with a more than passing knowledge of German history knows that the myths of Hitler being a vegetarian and having only one testicle were never taken seriously by anyone who was serious about Germany or history and were so spurious that the debunking didn’t take much work.

    Knowing how little research was put in this from the start – obviously there is not a Rome in every continent, and rhythm is NOT the longest word with no vowel.

    so I’m not worried about the rest of this balderdash
