i was going through a few random "Fact" pages online, and i found this:

"Professionals call the top socket on an electrical outlet the “Martha,” and the bottom socket the “Jasmine.”"

Is this true or not?

I'm gonna go with "no".

I found the same page (I'm guessing). Other facts are:

- If you hold one nostril closed for 72 hours, you will slowly lose the ability to see color.
- Wave a magnet at the lower left corner of a vending machine to receive a free soda.
- To be a train conductor, you have to cut off one of your own toes during a loyalty ritual.

and

- If you soak a baseball hat in coke, and then let it dry on someone’s head, over a 3-hour period the hat will shrink with skull-denting force, causing intense pain and irreparable damage.

I'm feeling good about "no".
