10 myths deflated

Livescience has a list up of the top 10 scientific myths of all time, with explanations for why they are mythical. I'm surprised that some of them actually made the list—do people really think that there is no gravity in space, or that chicken soup cures a cold? Either way, it's a fun read.

One of them on there—that yawning is contagious—surprised me, because I'd always believed it. Turns out that it could, in fact, be true.

And no matter what they say, I'll still use the five-second rule. Especially if it involves crumb coffee cake.
