I love this collection of favorite science myths (humans use only 10% of their brains, a penny dropped off a tall building will kill, etc.) and I wonder if there's a way to use such stuff in critical thinking exercises. Any ideas?
Another good site to use for critical thinking is Snopes.com, an urban legends reference (also a great place to check if you get an email saying your entire computer will explode if you don't do x,y,z; or Bill Gates will give you a million dollars if you ask; or NPR is going to be destroyed by Congress; or refugees in northern Siberia need your bikinis; or...).
What sorts of activities might be possible with this material?
