Sep 24, 2014
Schizophrenia is normally associated with the inability to separate fantasy from reality. That's why when people have voices in their heads that they believe are real, it's a sign of schizophrenia. Multiple personality disorder, which is now referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder, is (typically) when people use multiple personalities to suppress their past. These are two different things entirely and shouldn't be confused.

I've seen "experts" reeling off that brain stat before (one even went as far as to say it was <1% - and he was writing officially branded revison material). It's just a stupid concept - why would we have evolved to have large brains is if we didn't even use it?

Yeah definitely a large portion... I live in the south and I have heard exactly 1 person say this out of thousands of Republicans. It is not cool to generalize a large portion of the country.
+1
Level 67
Mar 7, 2020
One in a thousand is still a lot. Ok, you said thousands. But ( besides that the experience of one person is never the best thing to measure things by) but what someone happened to say when you are near enough to hear them does not equal to what people think. (Or have even spoken when you were not around).|

I for instance have never hear anyone say a cat has 4 legs, or outloud (as opposed to the internet, cause it is all over the place there) that the earth is round. Yet you can assume most people I know have no doubt about those things.

A slightly less obvious, more realistic example, I dont think I have heard people say NYC is the capital of the USA but I know a surprising amount of people actually do, and same with sydney for australia, though I think I have heard that one outloud, cause that one is a more prevalent misconception (with the usa you could get an ow yea, and with australia you probably get an o really?)

+1
Level 67
Mar 7, 2020
I have no opinion about how many people actually think that or not btw, no exposure to that one way or the other here. My point was merely, what you have someone say outloud does not say much about how many people actually think or believe something.

Apr 1, 2012
Sweet quiz - took me until Obama to realize "April Fools day" Note - Even if, for some unknown reasons our brains did evolve (which they would not) to use 10% the law of atrophy states we wouldn't maintain the excess capacity. The kernel behind this mis-truth is at any given time we use about 6-14% of our brains, this is accurate, one's brain cannot process so many different types of data simultaneously. However to say we only use 10% is silly, this is like saying a Porsche Boxster only uses 10% of its capacity just because it isn't going 160MPH, with the anti-lock brakes locked, air bags deployed, rear defroster on, and the heat and air blow, simultaneously full blast.

people and animals have been recorded to function almost normally without massive parts of their brain. Somehow other parts of the brain that never were intended for that function (motor or speech for example) picks up the slack. I am not saying brain damage has no consequences ever. Just that there are some extrodinary recorded cases out there.

Wow I was looking to give some examples cases and sources etc. But too much to read and weed through, if you are interested do your own research ;)> But I did come across Hemispherectomy, I was not aware of that. Removing one half of the brain (often in severe epilepsy cases) and not in the middle ages or something.. Extraordinary.

Note the tagline -- these all all 100% factual. Really....it's true! I heard it from my friend who knows this guy whose ex-roommate's uncle used to work at the Library of Congress where they keep all these facts on file in a secret location under the director's desk in a bomb-proof safe. Well....actually the only one that isn't true is the LSD question. I've taken it hundreds of times and it obviously hasn't affected me at all....

What I'm interested in is that some people correcting the Obama question apparently think that the country President Obama was born in is "Hawaii". Erm, he was born in the country called The United States. To some people shouting "It's April Fools!", no doubt some people who did not get that at first, like me got this quiz as a random selection. Once I "got" it, I was really pleased I'd got to play it, as I might not have selected April Fools Quiz to play based on its tite.

If the fitness by culture and language is considered as a continent (or subcontinent) definer, then the Arab world should be considered a continent on its own, separate from Asia and Africa, 'cause the people there share a lot culturally and linguistically.

@angrobper thought (most) people know that it isnt, to many I think the arab peninsula feéls like a seperate continent. And in their minds it is not lumped on the same pile as say japan. Because like you said, in many aspects it is distinctive from east and south east asia.

(to some extent people might feel that about west and eastern europe aswell, though that gap is closing).

people tend to make subdivisions in their minds. Sometimes it is the same as/overlaps with official terms other times it doesnt. (interestingly the subdivisions are often similar amongst people, as it is done intuitively)

Who cares where Obama was born -- whether you are correcting the April Fools quiz or not. Since he was born of an American mother he is a natural born citizen and could have been born in outer space -- it wouldn't have changed a thing. The whole argument was ridiculous before and is stupid now. He's out of the White House and that's all that matters.

Apr 1, 2017
Well first off very few people believe he was born in Kenya, they mostly believe that he was born in Hawaii before it became a state. Secondly, if that is true and can be proven (forgive me I don't know all of the rules) the argument is that every executive decision he signed would be nullified which would save a lot of time for the right. Thirdly THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS QUIZ IT IS ALL FAKE QUESTIONS!

Level 38
Apr 21, 2017
Obama was born in 1961 or 1962 (can't remember at the moment). Hawaii became a State in 1959. Therefore, Obama was born in the United States.

That might be the reason why at least some people don't get the quiz, as April Fool's is only celebrated in certain parts of the world. I have a friend who only moved to America in the last year, and she had never heard of April Fool's before.

Over 50%? Do you have actual data for that? I have always wondered, but never arrived at that amount. I thought atleast 2/3 were american (atleast going by the comments, it could be that people from others countries are less vocal (perhaps partly because their are not confident enough in their english speaking/writing ability).

The comments seem to be about 5% aus, 15% uk, 15 % other, and the rest usa to me. ( rough estimates, content of comments matter too, no way of telling were people that only right their score are from. And longer comments are more memorable)

(which indeed leaves 65% for usa which feels about right. Sometimes when you estimate things and you add them up you are over 100 so you need to readjust, but this one worked, even if I had started in reverse order)

This is just my perception, before people make comments about it. I am in no way claiming it is the actual numbers

And it is a serious question, I am curious, not a disagreement @quizmaster

This I said pretty funny, but it's a real dick move to put something that is the cornerstone of the world's largest religion as a false statement. Go ahead and believe what you want, but whether this is true or not is for the individual to decide. The Jesus question should be removed.

You don't even know your religion! The Immaculate Conception refers to the Virgin Mary having been born without original sin. You (and many others) obviously confuse this with the virgin birth of Jesus.
+4
Level 63
Apr 2, 2017
Mike B. is correct. I was raised in a very Catholic household and very Catholic schools. The Immaculate Conception refers to the belief that Jesus's mother Mary was conceived "with an immaculate soul" by her mother, St. Anne. Mary was born without sin, which is why she is always depicted with blue (for purity) and Jesus with red (for his blood sacrifice). The conception of Jesus by Mary is the Virgin Birth. It's not the same as the Immaculate Conception at all. The quiz is not suggesting Christianity is silly. It is poking fun at the many people who wrongly think the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth are the same.

I think this quiz is based on things that people have been led to believe at some point, whether from April fools jokes or otherwise. Some of these things have some basis in fact though not entirely true and some are completely wrong. It is what it is, probably not meant to be funny, though lighthearted, just stating these inaccurate beliefs. It is a shame some people seem to have misunderstood or even taken offence. It was a great quiz

And some questions are leading, there is only one answer that can be given. (so even if you have never heard rumours about it you can get the "correct"answer ) Like what african animal with a trunk has a gestation of 9 months. The only answer you can give is really elephant. Though it is incorrect (gestation period is atleast double that) Still fun though :)

The leading questions might also be part of the reason some do not realize ALL answers are incorrect. If it is about a subject you know nothing about, how would you know the obvious answer is wrong.Though that applies a bit more to the others in this series. Most of these are suspicious either way. Besides actually the one most argued about, where obama was born, if you dont follow american politics how would you know, where he was, or supposedly was or was not born. And the stalin and perhaps the shark one. Most others smell like a set up

The origin behind the carrot one is that during WWII, the British didn't want the Germans to know their planes were equipped with radar so they started a myth that the carrots their pilots ate gave them the ability to see in the dark.
+1
Level 67
Mar 7, 2020
As I Have heard it, it was simply a matter of supply and demand, there was a surplus of carrots during the war while many others foodproducts were rationed. So they tried to popularize the carrot as much as they could. With cartoons, and lots of different campaigns and government recipes, like carrot on a stick (instead of an icecream since sugar was scarce and very valuable). So the propaganda was aimed at its british citizens, eat carrots so you can see better in case of a blackout. What better way to convince people to eat something than to use things they are woried about (especially since there was already a relation between carrots (vit a) and eyesight) Could have coincided and been convenient to use it as a coverup of radar from the germans, but that is the byproduct/afterthought, I believe. The (original) focus of the lie was aimed at the british citizens.

Though often the replies make me cringe even worse. When people blindly copy/respond with things like "You idiot don't you realize they were ALL false!!" When the person in question obviously had ( already) realized that, and were just going in depth about a certain subject. Like an anecdote or simply along the lines "Ah I really thought this one question actually wás the case but see now that it isnt"

They dont even seem to read the comment ( same thing as they are blaming the person they are commenting of) and immediately feel the urge to scream, you idiot, didnt you see it was all wrong!!

I get that people confuse the term Immaculate Conception for when Jesus was conceived (when in fact it refers to Mary being conceived free from Original Sin in Catholic dogma), but even more basic than that is the fact that conception and birth are not the same, people. I think the question would be better stated, "Whose birth was a result of the "immaculate conception"? and not as it is currently stated because no one's birth is known as conception- conception is not birth for those of you unacquainted with the birds and the bees. And if that is the confusion meant to be illustrated by the April Fools Quiz then it is less clever than it could be.
