A very interesting read from cracked.com “The 6 Most Frequently Quoted Bullshit Animal Facts.”�� It outlines the classics like the myth that lemmings commit suicide or that ostriches bury their heads in the sand when scared.�� It� also has some fascinating information on just where these myths come from and why they’re not true.�� One thing I’ve always been taken by is just how easy it can be to start a myth that is nearly impossible to kill.�� In some cases, these bogus facts can be traced back to a single individual or publication that got the whole idea started.
Definately worth a look!
