- Watching horror movies and playing violent video games will turn you into a psychopathic maniac.

Yeah, you and about 20 million other players who were wrongly labelled by the liberal media every day since the video game system was born.

What's funny is when the whole "videogame violence" thing first popped up around the late 90's or so. My parents saw me playing Marvel vs Capcom and freaked out. They said (since it's a fighting game) all it is is violence and it's bad for me, then they took the game away. I tried to plead my case (it's rated E for Everyone, it's comic book characters like Spiderman fighting other characters, there's no blood), but they insisted that since there's no plot, it just fuels violence and "studies prove" that I'll become a freak.

Ironically, they took away Marvel vs Capcom, but had absolutely no problem with my horror movie collection. Lol. I couldn't play a superhero videogame, but I was allowed to watch nude teens get hacked up by Jason...that was perfectly ok in their book because I wasn't "creating the violence like videogames let you do".

The phrase I grew up hearing was "That book/movie/tv show/comic book/magazine/friend will WARP YOUR MIND!"

I am proud to say my mind was and remains delightfully warped.  Twirling

You know, they have the technology to release hoverboards, but the government won't let them on the market because they are too dangerous.

Also, there are cars that can run on water, but the oil conglomerates have been suppressing them for years.

I think sex ones are some of the funniest, stupidest, and most dangerous all rolled into one.

One that just won't go away no matter how well-educated people get (apparently): a woman can't get pregnant her first time.  Why?  Magic, apparently.

Hmmm...  I've known of body builders who resist sex/masturbation as they believe the loss of semen is a huge loss of protein.

I heard of a belief, supposedly popular in some third world countries, that douching with Coca Cola after sex would prevent pregnancy.

And the ones who go the other way, because they think it stimulates testosterone production.

My friend's stepdad told her that before "doin' it" with a guy, she should put earwax on his ding-dong, and if it burned or fizzled, then she shouldn't "do it" with him.

I don't know if that's true, but it sounds like a great way to scare guys away!

So, what, was that supposed to test if he was Satan or something? Mind you, if a guy's body temperature is high enough to burn wax, sleeping with him might not be a great idea (unless you like internal 2nd degree burns.)

We assumed it meant that he was dirty.. sort of like how peroxide fizzes on stuff.  I'm sure he was just really hoping she'd try it!
