It’s Okay To Pee In The Pool & 49 Other Science Misconceptions

If you love science fiction then you probably have at least a passing interest in science, if not an outright passion for it.  I really love science-y stuff, interesting facts, and watching TV.  That’s what makes this video from the wonderfully random site mental_floss so great; it combines all three of those things into one easy-open video.

The video list is presented by Hank Green who’s involved in more fun and educational internet projects than you can shake a stick at.  He’s responsible for YouTube channels Vlogbrothers, CrashCourse, and SciShow which are all well worth a click-and-look.  He also helped start the always entertaining, often disgusting, YouTube channel The Brain Scoop hosted by Emily Graslie (A channel I’ve been meaning to write about for a long time).

I’m pretty sure you already know a lot of the stuff “debunked” in the video, but you might be surprised by how many things you’ve learned that are just plain wrong.

Yeah, it’s one of those videos that make you feel both smart and stupid at the same time, ain’t it?  If you enjoyed that, be sure to check out the links below (and above) for more fun facts, entertaining education, and terrific trivia.
