1) "You should drink 8 glasses of water a day." Drinking only when you are thirsty is enough to keep you hydrated.

2) "Humans have 5 senses." We have a lot more, like your ability to balance and spacial awareness.

4) "The forbidden fruit in the story of Adam and Eve was an Apple." In actuality the religious texts never mention it, most religious scholars agree that the story most likely implied it was a fig.

Actually, I think it was a Fig LEAF that COVERED the forbidden fruit. Oh, well, you never know about this mythology stuff.

Drinking only when you are thirsty is enough to keep you hydrated.

But isn't enough to flush your system, which is the actual point to 8 glasses.

We have a lot more, like your ability to balance and spacial awareness.

Which both come from the 5 senses.

The actual point is that you're a retard.

Separating Sense from Nonsense

The Water Myth

It is a common belief that you have to drink 6-8 glasses of water per day, but this myth comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of some basic physiology.

Flush you system from what? As long as you are hydrated your liver will do that automatically. Adding extra water doesn't make that system more efficient, it just means the kidneys will now work harder to filter out the extra water.

Which both come from the 5 senses.

The ability to balance comes from a structure in the inner ear called the vestibular system which is separate from your ability to hear. It is an independent sixth sense.

Spacial awareness is a sense that's composed from other senses, but it is still a sense, and one that you can lose like eyesight.

Touch can be broken down to pain, pressure, and temperature because they are controlled by different type of receptors. Technically they are different senses with different functions.

1: America is a free country.

2: Things exist which are spiritual in nature.

3: Venerated historical figures like George Washington and Christopher Columbus were honorable.

4: Morality can be objective.

5: America is a democracy.

6: Socialism means state control.

7: Particles are something separate from fields

8: The state has authority

9: The average human is sane.

10: There can never be peace among humans.

"Trump is good for the economy." That's a good one. "The end is near." That's a bad one, but, closely related to the other, I fear. Can a fifth bankruptcy be far away?? Is professional "bankruptist" a word?? :-(
