50 things you are not supposed to know

I stumbled upon a very strange book called 50 things you are not supposed to know. It’s written by  an unknown author Russ Kick. It was so interesting that I spent all evening reading it. Only 68 pages and each page had it’s own set of surprises.

50-things

I don’t know about if it is true or not as I don’t have any means to verify if it is true or not. Sharing this with you is probably the best way to know the reality behind this book.

  1. any source for this? most of this just seems like completely uneducated statements that we assume to be true..

  2. Thanks for the info. This is something we are excited about. The bad thing is this site doesn’t work to well on my laptop. I will see what we can do when I get home and will be back for more info.

  3. 51. Some of the things written on this article are not true that’s why it didn’t gave any reference

  4. This is from a book that I have.
    If you would have read the beginning of this article rather than skim it and deem it false, you would have seen the book’s author and been able to look it up.
    Kick has references in the book to the sources he uses.
    Use your eyes.

  5. You might have cited a book that has references, but unless the book is available online the entire article is BS as your only reference is a book that you say you have that you say contains references.
    Btw, are those references even credible ???

    From my point of view half of this is “known fatcs” and the rest is BS unless you give some real evidence, not a “book written by an unknown author” as you state at the beginning of the article.

  6. How the *** many papers have you written where listing only the authors name counted as a reference? If you want to be taken seriously, you’d use the references that the author used after reading those sources yourself rather than just repeating the authors interpretation.

    THIS is what the *** is wrong with people today. They buy any bull*** that sounds interesting.

  7. A little more info, please? At least back up these statements. They just come off as outlandish and uneducated.

  8. It is REALLY easy to look these up and actually find sources for all iof these yourself. EXTREMELY easy. Seriously, I’ve copied each one into google and gain a plausible source for each one within seconds.

  9. How sad is your life that you have to take facts, lift them from their context, and use them to scare or misinform people to call attention to yourself? You’re a scene kid, aren’t you?

  10. here is a fact for you. #17 is bullshit because if you knew anything about real witches you would know that any man who practices wicca is a witch. no such thing as a warlock so wayyy more than 1/4 were/are men.

  11. Being a journalist, I was intrigued by the contents of this blog post. They all seem very plausible to me and I laugh that some would dismiss them offhand without doing even the smallest amount of research. While researching each, I came upon a site that had already done the work for me. So, I continued to research just in case some “know-it-all”, with nothing better to do than share their stupidity with everyone, questions the validity of the research. The fifty things you are not supposed to know are all, indeed, true. I am not going to share my research because I am using it to write a book. I will share a site where someone did an adequate amount of research on each. It is: http://50thingstonotknow.blogspot.com. So, for all you nay sayers who know absolutely everything, think again and perhaps you will find it prudent to keep your mouth shut until you know all the facts, which by the way, are impossible to know.

  12. i know some are true. i believe most are true. a few are prototypical liberal propoganda vaguearies utilizing terms/words like “almost” or “wanted to”. would be very interesting to read the details if sources are cited.

  13. half of them i know to be true i cannot be bothered searching but here are the ones i know are 1,2,8,15,16,22,23,24*,30,35**,40**,41,43,48***,50

    *they have to pay you market value, this is incase your property is in the way of a development site and you refuse to sell.

    **DUH?

    ***heard this one recently(…again) dont stamp your letter and put the return address (where your address is supposed to be) as the persons who you wish to send it.

  14. Who cares about #16? Is this article suggesting Hitler’s relatives should have been killed or something? Are people not supposed to believe that Hitler had family? For that reason alone I dislike this article. The facts here seem legit for the most part however, just hugely dumbed down and shortened, it reads like conspiracy fear mongering…The facts are fine, but the writing and referencing is terrible, and the article does nothing to help their cause. I’m not sure that any of these things are “things you’re not supposed to know.” 45 or so I assumed were common knowledge, or at least things you could figure out for yourself provided you’re not a total idiot.

  15. I have already read something like this before, but some are new learned info. I am not saying that I believed this but it’s a fun read though, sometimes it will make you think if such things really happen. But in the end it will depend on us, each one of us have different principles.

  16. Is this true? or just a hoax? some are almost impossible to be accepted. but I really enjoyed reading this post, because it gives little sense of curiosity

  17. 50 things you are not suppose to know. response to # 2 so did God in the Bible, its called The Songs of Solomon….read it :)

  18. Dear Tess, These are facts not principles, do you know the difference? Verifiable facts. facts are not dependent on whether you belive them or not. They are or should be an unbiased recounting of the truth which can be collaborated regardless of one’ s personal opinion. They are simply stated. Perhaps you might actually do some research but know this, either way facts are vold of human perception that is what makes them facts.:)
