Hhhmmmm... quite a few of those are not actually true.

The duck's quack not echoing is one of the best known urban myths that's actually complete crap.

The sentence one posted above is nonsense too. It's generally taken that all you need is a verb to have a grammatically correct sentence, hence any two letter verb will do. "Go." or "Be." are both sentences.

I could go on. Sorry to be a nerd.

No such thing as a "lock jaw bite". The only true lock jaw is from the infection tetanus (tetanus shot?), and humans can get it too.

Is it true all our balance comes from our pinky toes?
No. The main centre of balance comes from your inner ear. It contains semi-circular canals and the vestibule, which contains fluid and helps the body detect how it is positioned. Then the brain, muscle control, and vision assist it. It's actually how we get motion sickness, because this fluid gets all "wavy".
The last foot phalange (pinky) is more of a support and "stopper" for your foots gait and rolling movement. Kind of like a door stop.
