I received one of these "factoid emails" I know we have members from the Lebanon, and from other places these claims are made about. Can anyone confirm any facts about these or are they just rubbish?

Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals,

But the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male

Animal is punishable by death.

(Like THAT makes sense.)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's

Genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the

Examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

(Do they look different reversed?)

*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse.

This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased

Must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.



*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the

Countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the

Privilege of having sex for the first time

Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins

To marry.



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her

Adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The

Husband's' illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any

Manner desired.



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England but only

In tropical fish stores.


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her

Husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the

Room to witness the act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a

Woman and her daughter at the same time.


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending

Machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a

Vending machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold

For consumption on the premises."


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*



The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times

Its own weight and always falls over on its right side when

Intoxicated.



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Ah, geez.)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Starfish don't have brains.


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And, the best for last:

Turtles can breathe through their butts.

The one about the corpse genitals is misinterpreted. The undertaker CAN indeed look at the genitals of the corpse. Islamic traditions only recommend that deceased genitals are covered with cloth or underwear and NOT wood. It's not obligatory but only out of respect to the dead and nothing else, but it doesn't tell you can't look at them. In any case, would you want people staring at your genitals once (god forbid) something happens to you and you die?

The one about Lebanon is fake. I'm not Lebanese but I've been living in Lebanon for 24 years.
Most of these are just a result of Christianity's hatred against Islam (we can't formally speak of it, so we invade them, call them terrorists when they react to our invasions and make jokes).

The one about Guam, I doubt it is true, probably another prejudiced rumor. But I am tempted to go there an find out.

Here's the thing. I hate the word "factoid".

First off, IT'S NOT A WORD! And also what does it mean? What is the difference between a FACT and a FACTOID?

Seems to me the difference is that a factoid is not necessarily true. Hence, not a fact!

fac‧toid  /ˈfæktɔɪd/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[fak-toid] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation

–noun 1. an insignificant or trivial fact.
2. something fictitious or unsubstantiated that is presented as fact, devised esp. to gain publicity and accepted because of constant repetition.


[Origin: 1973; fact + -oid]

American Heritage Dictionary - Cite This Source fac·toid (fktoid) Pronunciation Key
n.
A piece of unverified or inaccurate information that is presented in the press as factual, often as part of a publicity effort, and that is then accepted as true because of frequent repetition: “What one misses finally is what might have emerged beyond both facts and factoidsa profound definition of the Marilyn Monroe phenomenon” (Christopher Lehmann-Haupt).
Usage Problem. A brief, somewhat interesting fact.

fac·toidal adj.
Usage Note: The -oid suffix normally imparts the meaning “resembling, having the appearance of” to the words it attaches to. Thus the anthropoid apes are the apes that are most like humans (from Greek anthrpos, “human being”). In some words -oid has a slightly extended meaning“having characteristics of, but not the same as,” as in humanoid, a being that has human characteristics but is not really human. Similarly, factoid originally referred to a piece of information that appears to be reliable or accurate, as from being repeated so often that people assume it is true. The word still has this meaning in standard usage. Seventy-three percent of the Usage Panel accepts it in the sentence It would be easy to condemn the book as a concession to the television age, as a McLuhanish melange of pictures and factoids which give the illusion of learning without the substance. ·Factoid has since developed a second meaning, that of a brief, somewhat interesting fact, that might better have been called a factette. The Panelists have less enthusiasm for this usage, however, perhaps because they believe it to be confusing. Only 43 percent of the panel accepts it in Each issue of the magazine begins with a list of factoids, like how many pounds of hamburger were consumed in Texas last month. Many Panelists prefer terms such as statistics, trivia, useless facts, and just plain facts in this sentence.
