For number 1.
The reason people believe that is because it's kinda true, but it's not. Hair is shaped like a cone, large on bottom and a point on the top. When you shave you cut of all but the thickest part of the hair. So it grows in at the thickest part first.

In regard to number 2 - when you eat, hormones released under direction of the hypothalamus-pituitary axis cause blood to be redirected to the gut for absorption of the microcomponents of food. this means you have less food in the periphery - i.e. muscles. you are correct (simply) in saying cramps are caused by overexertion, but due to a reduced blood supply to the muscles after eating, this overexertion stage occurs sooner.
so, swimming after eating can influence the onset of fatigue, and possibly cramping (due to reliance on anaerobic respiration). cramping is due to build up of lactic acid, a toxic byproduct of anaerobic respiration.
and yes, i am a smarty-pants. i know, and i'm sorry.

Hippos and Rhino's both jump, and if you actually believe that sloth's are too lazy to jump, you're retarded.

These are interesting, but I just want to point out that misinformed does not = stupid. A lot of people believe these things, not because they're retarded, but because they've been taught to accept them as fact.
Also, when you said that sloths can't jump 'cause they're lazy bastards', that would imply they are physically capable of jumping, but are rather not inclined to.

on number 3, ur right and wrong. a daddy long legs is very poisonous but because it's jaw isn't big enough to actually bite a human, it's useless. *prepares for thumbs down*

I'm going on my own knowledge, so if I'm wrong sorry. But I have heard that daddy long legs are not at all poisonous. Yes, there fangs are too weak to penetrate skin, but I don't think there would be anything to worry about

i found this webpage about it and it says that there are 3 different insects that people refer to as daddy long legs. 1 is an arachnid and does not have venom and 1 is a type of fly. but the most commonly refered to daddy long legs is an arachnid and has venom.

1. you are a dumbass. the tips of hairs are smaller than the rest, the diameter of the hair gets larger the longer it is. Therefore the thinner part is cut, and when it grows back the thicker part is exposed.
2. that sounds a bit fishy to me.
3. you fail.
4. you're gay.
5. It wasn't a normal sheet of paper. They taped a **** load of regular paper together, forming a large, but deceptively thin sheet. If it was normal paper, it would have been thicker, and therefore impossible.
6. this one was kind of funny. I have never heard anyone say this though. And you are a douche.
7. The idea of a "dog year" isn't meant to be taken literally. Once again, you are a douche.

ummm mr. retard sir the daddy long leg is very poisonous in fact but they're fangs aren't meant to puncture things as big as us only small animals so that cannot puncture our skin.... therefore we cannot get poisoned by them next time look up on your facts before posting them

Even if the skin is already broken, they can't. They would still have to get their fangs inside your body before they can inject poison because they can't spit it, so they still can't poison you.

hey dumbass, the only reason Daddy longlegs can't harm humans is because their fangs can't penetrate our skin, otherwise we don't know wtf will happen. Sloths can jump, so can Rhinos, just not that high

Hey, guys?
Mythbusters proved that the spiders can bite, just aren't venomous.

hehehe, wow you are as stupid as you look, every spider is venemous, otherwise the daddy long legs wouldn't eat it's prey, so i gotcha there.
the venom liquifies the innards of the bug it catches, and those same fangs are used to suck out the juices

so all spiders are not venemous? what about the brown recluse or the black widow? hmm? no those arent venemous cause mythbusters tested it on only ONE spider. spiders are SO fricken venemous

two types of animals called "daddy long legs" one has 8 eyes and a non segmented body and is thinner and recognized as the actual spider, the other (the one with the pill shaped body) actually makes no webs, belongs in the opilionid order of the arachnid family, it only has 2 eyes as opposed to the other "daddy long legs", oh and its so far just a myth, think of it this way, if the venom was very harmful to humans but they mouth parts are too small to puncture our skin, then how do we know how detrimental the venom really is to us? the only way to find out is to milk the spider's venom and inject it into a human. which is illegal. just saying.

elephants are the only mammal without the ability to jump due to the muscle and tendon configuration, sloths, rhinos and hippos do have the ability to jump... they just don't.

3. There has never been any deaths because the Daddy Long Legs' bite cannot pierce human skin.
