I didn't try to lick my elbow but I did look up a ducks quack echoing on google. Guess what its just a myth cause ducks quacks really do echo. How could it not? I mean what is sound? vibrations your ear picks up and what is an echo? Reflected vibrations your ear picks up. If I quack makes vibrations then they will be reflected and also be picked up. Maybe a quack just makes such low vibrations that when its reflected its inaudible but it still echo's to something. The only reason I didn't try to lick my elbow is cause I'm too lazy to lift my arm that high. Especially today with this hurricane going by

I think I'm going to try to lick my elbow now since there is nothing better to do.

this isn't true and has been proved false, here's a link to someone who has folded it 12 times in half.

well its a nice collection,although the INTERESTING ones are partially wrong,i ll just guess that http://news.bbc.co.uk/olmedia/164500...ngue150_ap.jpg can lick her elbow,as mentioned the ducks quack echoes,there is the thing with the library,check on snopes.com for the exact information,or that the 3 companies have changed etc,so its shoddy if you cant distuingish fakes from real ones ,so these lists are just a bust,since anyone can say a crazy thing and add them to the list ,and many will take them at face value :/

i recommend www.snopes.com as a source for "true or not" facts,like that lemmings dont suicide and were merely forced to do it in the video they jump off a cliff,and other things that often passed around but many were unsure if they were true,like if coca-cola ever contained cocaine (it did).

I know someone who can lick his elbow, but he dislocated his shoulder and can move it in and out of socket freely. Atleast I think that's what he does.

I'm not ashamed of the One I love.
