Teachers think they know it all don’t they? Well here’s 15 things they probably told you that’s a load of hairy bollocks

1. Humans have five senses.
That’s bollocks. We actually have more like 20 – including pain, hunger, thirst and balance.

2. Bulls hate the colour red.
Bulls are actually colour blind. The reason they react to a bullfighter’s cloth is because they perceive it as a threat. Sadly, the threat is the big fuck-off sword that the dickhead bullfighter is hiding behind the cloth.

3. Adding salt to the water in your saucepan makes it boil quicker.
That’s a load of big hairy bollocks. Go on. Test it.

4. Shaving doesn’t make hair grow back denser.
It just feels rougher because it now has flat edges where it was cut.

5. Goldfish have a 3 second memory span.
That’s a lie. It’s more about 3 months.

6. Bananas grow on trees.
Nope. They grow on large herbs that look very much like trees.

7. The Great Wall Of China can be seen from space.
A big load of bollocks. Unless you’ve got some super-duper spy capability on board.

8. Dogs sweat by panting.
Another load of bollocks. They sweat through their footpads. They actually regulate their temperature by panting.

9. Different parts of the tongue taste different things.
Not true.

10. We only use 10% of our brain.
TOWIE stars aside, we do use all of our brain, depending on the task we are doing.

11. You lose heat through your head.
Only applicable to babies and people with massive heads.

12. Vikings wore horned helmets.
Another myth. They were actually invented for a Wagner opera.

13. Sugar makes kids hyperactive.
Clinically proven to be a load of bollocks.

14. Caffeine dehydrates you.
It does to a certain extent but this is made up for with the actually liquid in the coffee.

15.Black holes.
They aren’t holes. Just incredibly dense objects with a gravitational pull so strong that even light can’t get out.
