10 Important Facts

Some surprising medical facts for you to consider whilst going about your daily chores today:

1) No-one in the entire world can touch all their own teeth with their tongue.

2) Mad people everywhere are now trying this.

4) You've just tried, and discovered this to be untrue.

5) Now you're sitting there with a crazed smile on your face.

5) Bet you didn't notice that I'd skipped number 3!

6) And now you've gone back to check.

7) Bet you didn't notice that I'd skipped number 6 either.

8) Fooled again...

9) Bet you didn't notice that number 5 appears twice!

10) Now that hopefully you've got a smile on your face, remember that that's what it's all about, and go back to your daily chores...

i noticed you had duplicated 5 when i went back to check that you'd missed 3....

unfortunately this is probably the only thing i'll smile at until i get home and get told to "go away daddy" by N and get a big smile from T.

You are incorrect with your final point, sir. Everybody knows that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.

Well damn, good show!

Emily said...

Umm. It would be funny if the first statement weren't flawed.

but i actually did it...

Eli said...

This may have worked on me, had it not been so damned old.

christopher-cowman said...

Anonymous said...

miiiiiiiiike said...

When I read the first question, the first thought that came to my mind was, "what about a person with only one tooth?"

I took it too seriously.

Jayne said...

Do they mean all your teeth at once, one at a time, or generally coming into contact with them? Cause I seem to be able to do the last... right? I mean, I can reach that little mound of flesh (at the back of the teeth) on the bottom and top of my mouth >.>

Jessica said...

haha When you said you duplicated the 5 I was just like "No way is he going to fool me again! I will not look." And then you didn't say anything else, and it turns out, there were two 5's, and I'm just...ridiculous.

ANYWAY, this was silly and wonderful.

Well played! You've foiled me!

Actually,I can touch all of my teeth.

Renholdër said...

Actually, if you leave your tongue flat and you bite it you can touch aaaaaaaaaaall your teeth

Mellanie said...

Um...both my fiance and I can touch all of our teeth with our tongues. It isn't that difficult, whether you skipped 3 or not.

i didn't check, i didn't check!! ha ha :D

Christa said...

Stumbled - and you fooled me every single time. :(

Anonymous said...

I have a habit of reading lists like this backwards, which completely ruined the entire thing. Oh well :)

Anonymous said...

I wear dentures and they weren't in when I read this. I noticed the missing 3 and the duplicate 5. But people reading this comment will smile because they have teeth.

slappmedoo said...

Oh yeah? Well, I bet I can--wait...shit. Okay, that was neat, but you won't fool me aga--dammit!

Lyss said...

Very amusing, I'm so predictable. Was running my tongue along my teeth within seconds of reading!
Thanks for the giggles :)

InsomniacMedic said...

To those of you who smiled or even laughed - you got it. And I'm pleased.
To those of you who took this too seriously, sorry. It made me smile - so I thought I'd share it....
And to the one person who commented that I'm retarded and should consider giving up on life - I hope you get better soon. And no - I won't be publishing your name and comment...
Stay safe people!

Jessica said...

Okay, for all you people saying number one was a fail, it was SUPPOSED to be wrong! #4 even says it! That's why it makes you feel so foolish, because you try it anyway. Well, I for one enjoyed the whole thing!

JoFungus said...

AHAHAHA XD that totally made my DAY!

Derek said...

I noticed all of the number errors, but I did have to prove the tongue thing wrong so I guess you got me.

Anonymous said...

To all of you who are freaking out about the first fact being untrue: Of course it's untrue, he even says it's untrue in the third fact. So calm down.

Anonymous said...

You do realize they TOLD you that number one was untrue, right?

Anonymous said...

I just want to sy that all of you people out there that said the first fact was untrue... duh it says it is in the second fact... wow sometimes ppl are dumb.. but thanks for the smile :)

That Guy said...

Stumbled this, but still, that smile was more than worth it. You've brought just that tiny smidgen of joy to my day. I Thank you.

Anonymous said...

Everyone is able to touch all their teeth with their tongue... That is the point. (#4 even says, that #1 is "untrue").

I smiled.

The thing that made me laugh the most were some of the comments dropped by others who didn't pay attention to all counts before commenting on them being wrong...

Thank you kindly sir for making my day, all the more amusing!

Laughed at one or two, guffawed at a couple more, got caught out by another, then got caught again ! Ha ! Brilliant and thank you, we should all pay attention. ESPECIALLY with people like you about - keep us on our toes !

you tricky bastard

You can thank StumbleUpon for the high traffic. At least, that's how I found it.

Anonymous said...

I totally checked #1. Then I thought this was just one of those totally flawed lists out there on the internet. I figured #2 was true. Then I got to #4 and felt like a sheep. :( I did not have a crazed smile though, despite missing the duplicate #5 and checking to see about #6! And now I will be running around confused all day trying to ensure myself I actually CAN touch all my teeth.

Catherine said...

Everyone post a smile if you found this by Stumbleupon.
:D
