This list was interesting until rule 32 which completely destroyed its credibility.

“32. Human hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.”

Sorry, but no it does not. The reason why a persons hair and nails looks longer after, say, 6 months after death is because the skin shrivels up and recedes, and more of the hair and nail becomes exposed. It hasn’t actually grown in length, its just that more has become visible.

After I saw that fuck up in this list, I found it hard to continue, and couldn’t help to think “the ‘tard who threw this list together doesn’t know shit’.

Peace out.

Its sad to read all y’alls harsh words, funny thing is if I asked U if U thought U would go to heaven when you’d die you’d undoubtedly say sure I’m a good person, yet your hate for your human family reveals just the opposite! Thankfully JESUS paid it all at the cross and repentance of one’s thoughts that anything other than GODs geace would get U there and believing on the Savior JESUS is the only way and praise GOD HE made a way cause we sure don’t deserve it! He’ll save U and givebirth in U a spirit of life and love peace my friends

“Google is actually the common name for a number with a million zeros.”
Incorrect. What you are thinking of is a “Googol”, which is “10,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000,­000”
though in general mathematics, a googol has no real significance. This is what I learnt in Mathematics.
