16 Wrong Things Too Many People Believe Are Correct

You would probably be surprised that many of the colloquial “truths” our parents told us – because their parents had told them, and so on – aren’t actually founded in facts.

It can hurt a little to hear some of these, y’all, but listen. If you’ve ever wanted to help out a little baby bird, the truth might also set you free.

16. It’s never blue.

The blood that’s in your body is blue. It isn’t, it’s still red. I remember being taught this by teachers as a child.

It does change a little when oxygenated though. Oxygenated blood is a brighter red than deoxygenated blood. But it’s always red.

Probably people heard about that and somehow decided it explains blue veins or something.

15. Be nicer to your doggo.

Dogs do not subscribe to an “alpha” based social structure. Wolves don’t either. Stop being mean to your dog.

The concept was thought up when someone studied captive wolves.

Not only that but he tried to replicate his study and realized he messed up and tried to retract the old study. But by then it was too ingrained in the public’s beliefs.

14. Please make this stop.

That if a guy hits you he likes you.

Or similar abuse because I remember being in primary school, I was literally a 6 year old girl who was getting bullied by two boys every day, then the teachers just dismissed it as “Oh, those boys probably just have a lil crush on you!”

We should stop teaching girls and women that abuse is a sign of love.

13. You have to say it all.

I before E except after C.

I before e, except after c
Or when sounded as ‘a’ as in ‘neighbor’ and ‘weigh’
Unless the ‘c’ is part of a ‘sh’ sound as in ‘glacier’
Or it appears in comparatives and superlatives like ‘fancier’
And also except when the vowels are sounded as ‘e’ as in ‘seize’
Or ‘i’ as in ‘height’
Or also in ‘-ing’ inflections ending in ‘-e’ as in ‘cueing’
Or in compound words as in ‘albeit’
Or occasionally in technical words with strong etymological links to their parent languages as in ‘cuneiform’
Or in other numerous and random exceptions such as ‘science’, ‘forfeit’, and ‘weird’.
Or when your foreign neighbor Keith receives eight counterfeit reindeer sleighs from feisty caffeinated weightlifters.

12. They get along just fine.

“Blind as a bat” bats are most definitely not blind.

11. Wait, it doesn’t?

Hibernation means sleeping all winter.

10. They’re not the same.

Schizophrenia as split personality. It’s actually a disorder with episodes of psychosis and symptoms like paranoia or hallucinations.

“Split Personalities”, correct would be multiple, distinct personalities existing in one body, are exceptionally rare and its called dissociative identity disorder.

9. It’s all a lie.

There are hot milf’s in your area!

Along those lines, anything a dating site says is incorrect. They are paid to make fake profiles and spam you to get you to buy a membership.

Then it goes dark.

8. Say it ain’t so.

That our parents walked uphill both ways in 3 feet of snow everyday to school.

7. Yes, that one.

That one about the 5G towers.

6. Thirty minutes won’t change a thing.

Swimming after eating gives you cramps AND YOU WILL DIE TO DEATH.

5. We’re not fatty enough.

Wild orcas will eat you, which is false orcas dont see us as a good food source so they will let you live.

4. It’s complicated.

That buying homes when interest rates are low is the best time to buy. I don’t feel like explaining this again but trust me that when interest rates are high, home prices will lower accordingly and you’ll have a chance to refinance at a lower rate in the future.

You’re also buying the home at a lower overall cost. You see what’s happening now with low interest rates, lots of competition and sky high prices.

3. All opinions were not created equal.

That all opinions are valid.

Everyone may have opinions. Everyone may speak their mind. Everyone should pursue truths and understanding.

However, when debating a topic, there’s a big difference between somebody who has spent their entire professional career and education on the debate’s subject matter versus someone who saw a post on Facebook.

2. Just ask my 3yo.

Gum stays in stomachs for 7 years it actually desolves itself when it’s in your stomach and then you well ya know the rest.

It doesn’t digest. But it just passed through your digestive tract and you poop it out. If you looked for it in your poop you’d find it

1. Don’t drink it.

That dog pee is sterile. It’s not!

Wow, some of these I suspected, but others I had no idea.
