35 Weird Myths We Learned Aren't True At All

Okay, we're not saying that ALL of these myths and urban legends that have picked up steam over the years being fake is a huge surprise-- It'd be difficult to find many rational people who earnestly believe that Miley Cyrus was an employee of Barack Obama, or that Hollywood keeps a bunch of Megan Fox clones around… But some of the following myths, over the years, have wormed their way into the public consciousness and are generally thought to be true. They're not! Stanley Kubrick absolutely did not fake the moon landing, and there's no secret confession about it in ‘The Shining’. Jennifer Lopez did not insure her butt-- How would someone even go about doing that? Also, your hair and nails don't keep growing after you die, the rest of you is just shriveling away because, you know, you're dead. Hopefully the following bring some clarity to some of the most popular urban legends.
