What is your favorite "common sense" notions about science, technology, etc that are absolutely incorrect by scientific standards? List as many as you can think of, get out the hate, pull an infy! Keep it civil please, if you disagree with someone don't cause a ruckus, just let it go, people can be wrong (and so can science) but this is just for bitching. If you, however, have a scientific basis for disagreeing, please cite it and call it good. This is -A THREAD FOR BITCHING-. No crap about "but but but but I disagree cause old sayings are good :[". If you disagree it's cool, science isn't always right, but once again, this thread is for SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY AND COMPLAINTS! :P
Alright, now for mine.
Colds - They aren't caused by cold temperatures, I'm not going to get a cold by going outside during the winter. Could people PLEASE stop telling me "oh, you'll get a cold"! -NO- I won't!
Shutting Down - There is no difference between rebooting and shutting down and then starting back up as far as software goes. Yes, there are hardware problems this can fix, but it has -NOTHING TO DO- with whether or not windows works. It re-executes the BIOS initialization code, it RESTARTS regardless of which you do! Stop being idioths (yes, that is supposed to be spelled that way).
That's all for now, I'm sure infy will infuse more of his hate into me later, for he is the fount of all hatred, from which it comes and to whom it returns. Now, let loose your own hate so that it may float back to the infy!
