People on Reddit were asked: "Which persistent misconception/myth annoys you the most?" These are some of the best answers.
1. I feel like this misinformation could get someone killed
I really hate the myth that the emergency oxygen masks on airplanes make you high, or docile so you don't panic during a crash. That's almost the exact opposite effect. If airlines really wanted their passengers to be docile they would just let them have hypoxia. Now that will make you calm.
2. How did this one even start?
Sleeping with a fan on will kill you. Very popular myth in Asia.
3. Not always true!
I have a virus, therefore, I need antibiotics.
4. I swear this is in every criminal movie
That an undercover cop has to tell you they're a cop as long as you ask them 3 times. Who comes up with that.
5. It's my body and I'll binge if I want to
