Description

It's dangerous to talk on the phone during a thunderstorm. Flushing the toilet sprays water around the bathroom. Freezers can burn your food. You may have heard these common sayings or beliefs before. But are they really true? Can they be proven through research? Let's investigate seventeen statements about the kitchen and home to find out which ones are right, which ones are wrong, and which ones stump even the experts! Find out whether the smell of a house cat really scares away mice. Discover whether ceiling fans can chop off your head. See if you can tell the difference between fact and fiction with Is That a Fact?
