Apparently, everything we've been taught to believe our entire lives are nothing but big fat fat lies. OK, maybe that's taking it a little too far, but there are some things on this list of the world's most common misconceptions that made me say "No way?!" out loud.

These are sometimes called "Mythconceptions", meaning myths that the vast majority of the world thinks are true, but they're actually not.

The folks over at stumbleupon.com have put together a pretty extensive list of the these mythconceptions and they also explain the reasons why these are false.

These probably are definitely not going to change your life, but I think you'll get a kick out the truth behind these nuggets of info we've been hearing our whole lives.

By the way, have you ever stopped to think about what's in a water tower?
