For those of you who voted for Harry S Truman, you are correct! This is absolutely true.


Blood is always red! It can be a lighter red, it can be a darker red. But it is always RED! Your veins are blue because of the light shining through your skin. Blood also contains oxygen already. That's one of its jobs is to carry oxygen through your body.


Ring around the Rosie first appeared in nursery rhymes in 1881; well after the plaque.


My mother told me that Chewing gum would stay in my gut for 7 years. I think it was just her way of trying to scare me into spitting it out instead of swallowing it. It didn't work btw but I did believe this one as a child.


Coke-Cola has nothing in it that will kill sperm.


Just to clear some things up. There is no shame in believing these myths. Many of them were taught as fact in school. We're constantly revising what we had once believed as truth as we learn and grow. So don't feel bad if you voted for the wrong thing. We live and learn. :)

Harry Truman's Middle name was not a name at all simply an initial S.
