Gaming's 20 Biggest Myths Busted

You know the rules. For better or for worse, they've become part of modern games design: barrels explode when you shoot them. Necks can be snapped with a single twist. Health packs give you 75 per cent of your health back. But could any of it actually happen?

The problem with trying to learn how to play instruments through Rock Band is that in real life... there's no screen to show you when you should play a certain note or beat.

The skills you learn from playing the drum is easier to translate into real instruments than the guitar though, since real guitars have 6 strings and tons of frets while Rock Band's only has buttons.

Am I missing an eyebrow?

"Do zombies exist?" Pretty interesting answer.

"Yes, according to Bryn Truett-Chavez: herbalist, priestess in the Sisterhood of the Silver Branch, and owner of True Spirit Healing Arts in Los Gatos, California. "Your right brain is open to seeing and experiencing the aspects of life beyond the physical," she explains. "The ingredients in a potion crafted for this purpose will quiet the practical left half of the brain to let the right brain work its, well, magic"

"Can you really pick a lock with a pin, like in Fallout 3?"

heres a guy originally from my country that proves you can throw a grenade back.

Good for him...but like the experts say, the likelihood that you'll actually be able to do it is very slim.

im sure throwing a grenade back means, throwing it back to the person hew threw it in the first place, very unlikely, the amercian army in world war two would cook there five second fuse for 2/3 seconds before throwing it into a room giving little chance of it coming back, im sure your more likely to kick back a grenade then to throw it back
