    I love stuff like this. I feel you just can't know enough stuff.

    Do the giant squids keep their eyes open when they sneeze?

    I love these things, except they so often feed misinformation. I don't know about this one in particular (most of these seem valid), but I know similar ones that have gone around are 25% or less actual true facts,t he rest are just completely made up. Why, I have no idea.

    BTW, what's UFI stand for?
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I think it's great to dispute them if you can offer otherwise proof.
