UberFacts: True or False?

On Twitter, you or your friends might follow an account called UberFacts, and recently I’ve been noticing they have making some ridiculous claims and I decided to find out if these “facts” are actually true. I only google searched on these claims, so I may be wrong in my findings.

1.  October 12, 2013 “Pisanthrophobia” is the fear of trusting people due to bad past experiences.”

False- This is not a real phobia when looked up “Pisanthrophobia,” on dictionary.com nothing came up, and when I used spell check Microsoft Word thought it was a misspelled word.

2. October 12, 2013 “In 1986, Steve Jobs launched his own clothing line for Apple fans.

     True-

3. October 12, 2013  “Clinomania is the excessive desire to lay in bed all day.”

False- I’m thinking if this one was true a lot of people I know (and me) would probably have this condition!

Again when I looked up this one on dictionary.com nothing came up, and spell check doesn’t recognize it as a word.

4.  October 13, 2013   “Extreme Ironing” is an actual sport – People go to remote places just to iron their clothes.”    

True-       Image

5.

October 8, 2013 “The average person fears spiders more than death.”

False?- No way! Although spiders are pretty scary,  I would hope this is false for everyone!

Overall, most of the facts on the Uberfacts account were true, but some of “facts” depend on the person or people their about.
