Another post of Urban myths. Just a note, I get most of this from Snopes. If you don't want to wait for the results look it up there, but please don't cheat. I also have only included ONE truth. If you disagree with Snopes, well that isn't my fault. But I generally agree with their assessment.

Please, no demeaning others. That happened in one other post and I don't want it to happen again. There's nothing wrong with believing in a myth, especially if you were taught it in school as a child.

_________

Update:

If you voted for the Marlboro man, you're correct.

The popular Nastradamus quatrain that looks like it predicts 9/11 is a fake.

The hindu dot (also referred to as the Tilaka, Bindi, or bottu), represents the third eye. It can be worn by female and male Hindu's.

Boxing day is also known as St. Stephens day. It's a day to box up goods or cash to give to the poor.

Santa was not created by Coca-Cola. The modern santa was around before they used him in advertisements.
