Not true. This is just pure marketing stunt for the fast food outlet. There are several instances that debunked such claim. Russia and Georgia recently went for each other’s throat, and Israel and Lebanon had their own share of skirmishes.

 

3. Polar Bears are always left-handed

Not true. Where this silly idea came from, nobody is sure by now. This misnomer is even perpetuated in a lot of Google results. In reality, Polar bears are ambidextrous. This has been proven by a lot of scientific studies.

Not true. In fact, how do you vacuum dust in a vacuum? Obviously, you don’t!  The real story about the DustBuster is that Black and Decker actually teamed up with NASA to develop another tool, the battery-operated drill. The technology for this device was then adopted in the design and development of the DustBuster.

 

5. You can buy a product at the posted price even if it is found later to be erroneous by the shop owner
