Fact: It is NOT true that Mr. Rogers wore long sleeves to hide military tatoos & that he was a military sniper with "blank" amount of confirmed kills.

" After graduating from Rollins College in Florida with a degree in music in 1951, he immediately embarked on a broadcasting career a career that continued uninterrupted for nearly 50 years, even while he studied for a Bachelor of Divinity degree, eventually becoming an ordained minister in 1962. Far from hiding a secret past as a trained killer, Fred Rogers was a truly gentle soul who devoted his entire adult life to educating and bettering the lives of children, and as such he deserves to be remembered."

"Dolphins have a prehensile penis, it is full of powerful muscles and they can wrap it around objects such as a human limb. The decoys never resurfaced in any of the studies..."
The reason they didn't resurface was because gangs of dolphins would take them to underwater caves & rape them.

Fact: Drinking one's morning urine ('amaroli') was an ancient yoga practise designed to promote meditation. The ancient Hindu and yoga texts that mention auto-urine drinking, require it be done before sunrise and that only the mid-stream sample be used.The pineal hormone melatonin and its conjugated esters are present in morning urine in significant quantities, the pineal gland secreting melatonin maximally at about 2 am, this secretion being shut off by the eyes' exposure to bright sunlight. Melatonin, when ingested or given intravenously, amongst other effects, provokes tranquility and heightened visualisation. There are high concentrations of melatonin in the first morning urine, but not in a physiologically active form.

There are 36 different species of dolphins that have been recognized. 32 of them are marine dolphins which are those that we are the most aware of and 4 of them are river dolphins.

Not even the rivers are safe from the dolphin menace!
