I used this in my study last year.

•111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321.
•Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of their unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down – hence the expression "to get fired".
•Money isn't made out of paper, it's made out of cotton.
•An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's[sic] brain.
•Elephants are the only animals that can't jump.
•At the nearest point, Russia and America are less than 4 Km apart.
•A blind chameleon still changes colours to match his environment.
•"Typewriter" is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard.

No. It's a pun based on the word 'discharge'.

•Money isn't made out of paper, it's made out of cotton.

Currency paper is composed of 25% linen and 75% cotton.

•Elephants are the only animals that can't jump.

Snails jump? Awesome.

•A blind chameleon still changes colours to match his environment.

It changes colour yes, not to match the surroundings except by chance or base response such as shade = set pattern.

•"Typewriter" is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard.

Perpetuity and repertoire are each ten letters.

The point of these was to waste time, so that the control group (this) and the experimental group would take the same amount of time to complete the questionnaire lol

"A common urban legend persists that the Monumental Axis is the widest road in the world, where "[100 to 160] cars can drive side by side". This is untrue, as the road consists of two avenues with six lanes on either side; a total of twelve lanes." - http://en.wikipedia.org...

Lol reminds me of something I learned in science,
More people die from vending machines falling on them than from shark attacks per year.
