There are a bunch of myths we have come to accept as relative truth, but in this 'Common Myths That Turn Out to Be False' infographic, you might find a few shocking results.

The first myth that gets busted is that fingers become pruny from absorbing water; in reality, it's an evolutionary feature that gives us better grip in wet conditions. In addition, reading in the dark might make you sleepy, but it won't damage your eyes.

The next one regarding thoughts on sex is bit more intriguing and divulges that men think about it roughly once an hour and women about half that. Another common misconception is that caterpillars grow wings inside their chrysalis when in actuality, the tiny critter is dissolved and re-animated before emerging.
