There are so many misconceptions that we all believe that it must be difficult to narrow it down to 10, but a guy by the name of C.G.P. Grey runs a YouTube channel where he explains really complicated ideas in easy down-to-earth language.

We've all heard the fact that we only use 10% of our brains. Heck, they even made a movie about it showing a woman who uses most of her brain and is able to do all sorts of amazing things. Well, it's a movie made on science fiction not science fact.

In this video, C.G.P. Grey takes on 10 great and widely believed ideas and dashes them against the rocks. I mean, do we really swallow about 8 spiders a year in our sleep? Well, Grey addresses that in the video as well. You don't really want to know the truth about that one, but it's right there in the video.
