American Culture Myths

Myth: George Washington Was The First President of the United States.

Our history books tell us that George Washington was the first president of the United States. But in reality, that is true if you only consider the American government established after the Constitution was ratified, not the government that existed under the Articles of Confederation.
There was an American government before the Constitution, and its first president was John Hanson, elected as president in 1781 while the new United States was still struggling to establish itself. While not recognized as such, John Hanson was chronologically the first president of the United States.

Myth: The Moon Landing Was staged.

Disbelievers claiming the first moon landing in 1969 was faked and staged in some Hollywood Sound Stage or somewhere else on Earth.
Their argument is based on for that perception that when the flag was planted on the ground it appears to be waving as if it was in a stiff breeze. Video examination shows that the flag moves only when touched and then continues to do so for a short time; the “movement” is the result of vibration caused on being planted in the moon’s surface, not by an action of wind.

Myth: Men Think about Sex Every Six Seconds.

Granted, from the time males become teenagers and into early adulthood, sex is reoccurring fantasy that appears to be fairly prevalent in their minds.
But how often is too often? The myth says males requester sexual thoughts about once every six seconds, but that would certainly disrupt school, work or other normal routines to the point of incompetence. A study in “Men’s Health” revealed that only about 23 percent of males regularly think about sex. Sports, cars and binge drinking could be cover the rest.
