Here at Discovery we’ve pretty much cornered the market on myth busting. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t experts and scientists out there working hard every day busting myths themselves. Apparently, it’s part of their job.

From the medical (Should you whisper when you have a sore throat?), to the scientific (Do black holes suck up anything that comes near them?), to the personal (Do men really think about sex all the time?) the folks over at Online PhD have collected a bunch of common myths that have been busted by intrepid researchers.
