  3. Actually, “Go” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language…

  4. and the missing full moon fact was wrong as well
    There was, in fact, a full moon in February, 1865. It occurred on 1865 February 10 at 16:27 UTC.
    The specific chart is the USNO 1865 Moon Phases document.
    This is not to say, however, that it is impossible for February to miss the full phase. The moon phases cycle every 29.5 days. Februrary, with 28 days (and 29 on a leap year), does miss a phase periodically.
    In fact 1866, 1885, 1915, 1934, 1961 did not have a full phase.
    As recently as 1999, there was no full moon during February.

  5. The Indianapolis Colts won a super bowl.

  6. You have to much time on your hands!!


  8. you can to sneeze with your eyes open, even if u dont hold them open, they did something on mythbuster were someone thought that if you sneeze with your eyes open they will pop out neither were true, u can sneeze with them open, and aso some people think your body completely shuts down wen you sneeze, you can talk and walk while you sneeze

  9. No…go isn’t the shortest…it doesn’t have a subject and verb…in order for a sentence to be complete…it has to hav a subject AND a verb

  10. does chocolate really have 8 insect legs in it?!?!

  11. on snopes, im pretty sure they proved that donald duck wasnt actually banned in finland. but i cant remember for sure……that was a whole three days ago………….*going to snopes*

  12. actually “go” is the shortest sentence. it has an understood “you” before it. so it does have a subject and a verb.

  13. Actually the Patriots won 3 super bowl’s in 4 years! 02-05. pretty good odds, won 3 out of 6 apperances

  21. duh u can kill yourself by holding your breath who dosent konw tht

    you really need to do some more research on this stuff

  22. mhhmm cool facts u got sum kinda creeped me out…

  23. The shortest sentence in the human language isn’t “I am”, it’s “Go.”

  24. I really enjoyed reading all the facts.

  25. another fun little fact:
    there is an american flag in the front of the canadian two dollar bill. Also, there is no word in the english language that doesn’t contain a vowel.

  26. Actually, you cant kill yourself by holding your breathe, you can however kill yourself by, putting a bag over your head, wet towel etc. but without assistance, just by simply holding your breathe no other instruments you cant kill yourself. you can pass out, but as soon as you do, you automatically start breathing again. thats why people put bags around there heads!

  27. Most of the people who post on here are complete idiots. sara, for example, said “duh u can kill yourself by holding your breath who dosent konw tht”, but you will go unconscious before you kill yourself, and then your body will begin to breathe automatically. Also, many people misread the fact about the Superbowl, it specifically states that no home team with a DOMED stadium ever won the Superbowl. Take a bow, my friends. Having access to the most information since the dawn of man, and yet you persist with your blind ignorance.

  28. to littleone
    there are loads of words in english that dont have a vowel. the longest is rythmn…did i spell it right? it dosent matter it stll dosnt have a vowel!

  29. to littleone
    myth, fly, rythym, cry,fry etc etc

  30. No it is physically impossible to kill yourself by holding your breath. you might be able to make yourself pass out but as soon as you do you star to breath again.

  31. Go is a complete sentence. It has a subject and a verb. The subject is “you” understood. So yea, “go” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.

  32. And the Superbowl one is false too. Hello, anyone heard about the Saints??!!

  33. you can to kill so yourself by holding your breathe who doesn’t know that

  34. the thing about “I am” is wrong the shortest sentence possible is “Go”

  36. yayyyy im right-handed!!! 😀
