I agree Lolakitty72... the list was great for women too.

What the hell is girth?

The coin part is wrong.
All objects fall at the same rate.

Aces over Eights refers to the fact that Aces are higher rank than Eights. A full house is Aces full of Eights, not Aces over. Also, the kicker is unknown, but has been suggested as Five of Diamonds, Nine of Diamonds, Queen of Clubs, and King of Spades. About the coin one - yeah, all objects fall at the same rate, but this is talking about how it lands, not when it lands. Try flipping a piece of bread with butter on one side - see which side hits the ground. The buttered side, because it weighs more. The fact that heads weighs more than tails by a small amount means that heads should end up on the ground more often than tails - if only a miniscule amount of time. It's such a small difference though, that you can't really count on it that often. While not stated, I'm sure they're basing the figure off of a formula that someone created taking into account weight ratios.

Meh. How random. This is the ideal list for a meterosexual-ghetto-boyscout.

Fabbyfubz - Not exactly. If you drop two objects of the same size and shape, they fall at the same rate. But a coin is just one object, so the weight would control which side would land down due to the coin flipping around in mid-air.

And I gotta say - those Bonanza lyrics suck. The song's better without them.

^ever hear of the buttered toast myth?
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/12/06 - 7:50:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why, yes, yes I have. It was on Mythbusters. Sadly, I missed that episode. But the point is that the difference is so small that it would need an extremely large amount of trials to be important - like it said, statistically insignificant. But still interesting.

Wow, can you say "sexist"? Maybe Maxim should stop exploiting women's bodies for profit and get a life. Men should do dance lessons all they want.

The coin part is wrong.
All objects fall at the same rate.

Firts off, you can expect that sort of thing for a magazine like Maxim. They aren't scientific geniuses. They're a bunch of sick perverts.

Secondly, all objects fall at the same rate <i>in a vacuum</i>.

"Humans use just 10 percent of their brains. Only true of Home Shopping Network customers. Because the brain’s highly specialized, we only use a tiny fraction of its cells at any one time—it’s closer to 5 percent—but we use virtually all of it over the course of a day. "

That is just a myth, actually. We use about 5-10 percent of our brains doing specific activities, but use nearly all of it in a day.

i dont think any1 should need 2 know any of these things
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/12/06 - 9:59:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Um, silver morn, you might have missed the point of that brain fact. Seeing as how it was the list of myths, and therefore saying that humans use "virtually all of it over the course of a day". Which is kinda what you said. So I'm just kinda wondering why you said that.

Juuuuuuust curious.

What is the Dead Man's Hand?

The official and up-to-date version of this answer is here.

Legend holds that Wild Bill Hickok was shot to death during a poker game in Deadwood, South Dakota, and that the hand he held was two pair, black aces and black eights. On that most people agree. The fifth card is not known for certain. In order of credibility, the following kickers have been suggested:

Five of Diamonds
The actual card is supposedly on display in Deadwood, previously on display at the Stardust in Las Vegas.
Nine of Diamonds
Listed below in the glossary, this card was supposedly reported by first hand accounts, and is used in a recreation in Deadwood.
Queen of Clubs
On display at Ripley's Believe it or Not.
King of Spades
Appeared in the 1936 movie

i didnt know some of that stuff. pretty cool
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 4/12/06 - 11:13:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some cool stuff there. Noticed some big mistakes with the blackjack part though.

You don't split aces to get rid of the 12... you do it because it gives you 2 hands both worth 11 [which is a very powerful hand in blackjack, because 4 of 13 cards give you a 21].

This part is terrible advice: "Split any other pair when the dealer has a visible 4, 5, 6, or 7. Reasoning: Never miss a chance to double your bet when the dealer’s likely to bust."

It depends on the specific pair that it is. But a dealer 7 is very different to a 4, 5 or 6. Full blackjack strategy can be found here:

Also the fastest production car is the Bugatti Veryon, not the MacLaren F1.

As for the Dead Mans Hand in poker... 2 black aces and 2 black 8s... the kicker card was unknown.

The article's a pretentious POS, just like one would expect from Maxim. The best part is the moron's sad attempts at (edgy?) humor. Like the anthrax one, or saying to poke a stick in your eye to remove "floaters", or feeding chocolate to a greyhound right after saying chocolate is poisonous to them, etc. ad nauseum. Christ I hate "men's" magazines...they're for and by just about the worst specimens of anything male.
