The Myths[]

Goldfish Memory[]

A goldfish's memory lasts only three seconds.

The Mad Trombonist[]

A trombonist had put a firecracker into his mute, and at the final note of the 1812 Overture, launched the mute, striking the conductor and knocking him back into the audience. In addition, the bell of the trombone was blown wide open and the slide was launched.

Sinking Titanic[]

A sinking ship creates enough suction to pull a person under if that person is too close (as was rumoured to occur when the RMS Titanic sank).
