I've heard all of those before and most of them seem true, however I also heard that the duck quack "fact" was, in actuality, an urban legend...Then again, maybe the refuting of the "fact" is the true falsity....who/where can you trust to get your Facts?

ducks quacks do echo. on many a hunting trip, in the early morning, no wind, it echos like crazy when they're coming in to land on the pond. as far as this stuff being useless, it's always good to have these kind of facts on hand for an icebreaker, or just shooting the bull.
