I stumbled across a website called Live Science yesterday, and it takes a lot of stumbling for me to hit a place like that.  What sucked me in were things that I’d always thought I knew, things that were a given, things like:

Water drains backwards in the Southern Hemisphere.
There is no gravity in space.
A falling cat always lands on its feet.
A penny dropped from the Empire State Building could kill you.
Men think about sex every seven seconds.

These things are all common knowledge, right?
Well… maybe not… and Sid absolutely refutes that last one.
Go visit the Live Science link below, to see how much you know.
