Everything I Know Is Ridiculous - Part VII

5) You either unican or you unican't.

4) Born December 15,1687, Sir Isaac Newton allegedly discovered the theory of gravity when he saw an apple fall from a tree. This story hasn't been verified (and is also super lame, really never seen anything fall before?) Them apples aside, Newton is regarded as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution. Regrettably, the discovery of gravity now prevents us from being being able to fly. Expect me of course.
3) Most muppets are left handed.

2) Ever wonder which letters made it onto those eye charts optometrists use? Called LogMAR charts and created by NatSeriousional Vision Research Institute of Australia in 1976 eye scientist picked particular letters designed to enable a more accurate estimate of visual acuity. While these nerds earned scientific and medical recognition for putting random letters onto pieces of paper, I received my English Major.
