Do you really know the back of your hand? Like, really? Take a look at it for a bit. Then, when you really think you examined all the details, put it under a table or pillow. Put a piece of paper on the surface, then try to draw where you think your hand is. Not so easy, is it? In fact, in 2010, scientists from the University College London tested to see if people were able to draw the back of their hands, which they drew as much shorter and wider. So in fact, most people don’t know the backs of their hands.
WIll eating an apple a day prevent doctor appointments? No, but they may help with another sort of practitioner. Apples contain dietary fiber and other benefits, which will make you healthier. This will obviously not make you immune to disease. However, apples clean your teeth. The fiber in the apple can clean teeth. It takes the plaque off of your teeth. So, eating an apple every morning and evening may actually keep the dentist away.
Now, for the most crazy saying. If you put a bull in a china shop, would it destroy everything in sight? Actually, no it wouldn't. The Mythbusters actually tested this saying by putting shelves with china inside a bullpen. They then let the bulls loose. The bulls, running at full speed, gracefully turned and sped around the pen. They didn’t knock over a single shelf. No china was harmed. So, maybe we should start saying some new phrases. “I know it as well as the back of my hand - I don’t.” “An apple a day keeps the dentist away.” “As graceful as a bull in a china shop.”
