    My favorite is:

    Daddy Longlegs are the most poisonous / venemous spiders on Earth, but their fangs are not long enough to penetrate human skin.

    Mythbusters tacked this one a while ago, as have many others.

    But seriously, how did it last so long? With so many of them around so many humans, and yet no case of injury? Come on.

    Any more you'd like to add? Chances are you'd be doing a good service.

    I agree with the God myth. God is a superstition in my humble opinion.

    Grade 2 titanium is the only safe, or superior grade to dab from, and that includes other metals too.

    I've never dabbed before, so... this is the untrue part, yes?

    The untrue part is, grade 2 Ti is the only safe metal to dab from, that is far from true, and the people that advocate that have no idea who, or how this myth got started.

    Hmm. I'm afraid I don't know ANYTHING about dabbing so I can't really comment. Although I am curious if some other FC'ers feel differently?

    Am curious about this one, as I hope to start dabbing one day...

    Not to derail your thread, I'll be as brief as possible.
    If you ever decide to dab concentrates in the future, don't worry about it, most nails out there are made of safe materials like glass, quartz, titanium, ceramic, etc.
    You'll be ok if you ask around these forums.
    I really didn't expected any response to my post, it was mostly done as a half jokingly, half true.

    Feel free to derail away. Isn't that what threads like this in the Vapor Lounge are for? :ko:

    I appreciate your posts. In my world, this is something I would have never heard of. Exactly what I was thinking when I started this thread on a drunken whim... :cheers:

    Thanks, I really do appreciate this thread.
    One think that never ceases to amaze me is how as humans defend myths when we have no clue and don't take the time to investigate, and yes religion has a lot of them, without offending our Roman Catholic fellow FC members ( I grew up catholic BTW)
    Where does the myth of abstaining from meats other than fish on Fridays during lent came from?
    I did my home work and found the truth, and it has nothing to do with Christianity.

    My favorite is that Cannabis is a gateway drug and is extremely dangerous - I love that one, boy was I surprised when I started to smoke and did my research into how "dangerous" it really is.

    Oh, and I always love the myth that all stoners are looser who sit on a couch in their parent's basement and do nothing all day because they have no job. How many of us prove that stereotype wrong!

    Yeah, whenever I go down to see the parents, it always creeps me out the way people use their garages as basements... :shrug:

    Good one! This myth was REALLY driven home during my high school Health classes. This is something I continued to believe until I became interested in FC.
