Myth 1: Coca-Cola will dissolve a tooth overrnight. (HAH Dont the parents just WIsh!!)
Coca-Cola will not dissolve a tooth (or a nail, or a penny, or a piece of meat) overnight. Coca-Cola contains acids (such as citric acid and phosphoric acid) which will eventually dissolve items such as teeth (given enough time), but so do plenty of other substances we commonly ingest (such as orange juice). The concentration of acid in these products is so low that our digestive systems are easily capable of coping with it with no harm to us
Myth 2:The Great Wall of China is the only man-made object visible from the moon (Wrong again)
The only thing you can see from the moon is a beautiful sphere, mostly white (clouds), some blue (ocean), patches of yellow (deserts), and every once in a while some green vegetation. No man-made object is visible on this scale. In fact, when first leaving earth's orbit and only a few thousand miles away, no man-made object is visible at that point either.An object that can barely be seen from a height of 180 miles up is obviously not going to be visible from the moon (roughly 237,000 miles away), as confirmed by Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean

MYTH 5: Cats always land on their feet
While cats instinctively fall feet first and may survive falls from high places, they also may receive broken bones in the process.So Not always do cats land on their 4 feet.
MYTH 6:Swallowing a chewing gum would mean it would remain in ur digestive system for a long long time
Chewing gum is largely indigestible, but it will make its way through your digestive system at the same rate as anything else you consume.
MYTH 7:Drinking alcohol — brandy, for example — will warm you up when out in cold weather.
A swig of brandy might initially make you feel warmer, but drinking any alcoholic beverage actually lowers your core body temperature. It sends blood to your skin, which will make you feel warm and flushed, but causes you to lose body heat. You could suffer from hypothermia and not even feel it. Alcohol can also cause dehydration and impair your judgment, which can make matters even worse.
MYTH 8:Everyone should drink eight glasses of water a day to stay healthy and properly hydrated
While it's a good idea to drink plenty of water, there is no scientific or medical basis for the specific amount of eight glasses per day. Water intake needs vary from person to person, depending on age, size and amount of physical activity. We can also get water from food and other beverages, so we don't necessarily need to get all of our fluids in the form of drinking water
MYTH 9:If you cut a worm in half, each half will grow back into a complete worm
If you cut a worm in half, you will most likely end up with two halves of a dead worm. However, some species of worms can re-grow a new tail if it is cut off (or more likely, eaten by a bird). While it is possible that the head half of the worm may grow a new tail, the tail half will not grow a new head — so you're unlikely to end up with more worms than you started with.
