Tl;dr: This is a repost and bullshit.
First of all, this is a repost.
Second of all, several of these are utter bullshit, and thus others that I don't know the veracity of don't seem very likely either. One of the chief complaints of astronauts was that there was no way to scratch your nose. Feeding lobsters to prisoners wasn't considered cruel and unusual punishment, Massachusetts merely passed a law that classified feeding prisoners with lobster more than twice a week as cruel an unusual punishment simply because the ridiculous abundance of lobsters implied that feeding them to prisoners more than twice a week just meant you weren't trying to care for them. Lord knows where the original compiler of this post got that quote, but feeding prisoners lobsters on a regular basis was a crime simply because you could walk outside and grab about 40 of the buggers no trouble at all. It was like feeding them twinkies, it was lazy. As a chronic insomniac, I can personally discount the sleep one. I go to a sleep doctor on a regular basis, and we know all sorts of things that sleep is necessary for.

With the whole vaccine crap, if I should decide to have a poop and puke smelling bundle of joy; I'd be first in line for all the vaccines. Women should have them while pregnant (Like the one for whooping cough, which is surprising that women aren't having it), and the kids should have them before they are subjected to the nasty fucking viruses out there.

That's true, but after some digging I found: "Four years after the publication of the paper, other researchers' results had still failed to reproduce Wakefield's findings or confirm his hypothesis of a relation between childhood gastrointestinal disorders and autism."

It's like the guy who said subliminal messages work, he made a load of his research up to prove his point.

The sleep one seems off, I'm pretty sure we know about the body and the repairs it does when we are asleep

Fun fact: The majority of facts on the internet are made up on the spot.

Is that perhaps a fact that you made up on the spot?

I'm sorry, it's not a mystery why we sleep. It's widely known that sleep is needed for repair and maintenance. The lack of movement and (stimuli caused or consciously created) brain activity means almost all the energy and nutrients can be used to fix all the injuries and problems we have as well as sort out our brain's memories and synapse placements.

what we don't know is why we DREAM. But our brains are still very active during sleep, so it's probably just how our conscious interprets all that shit happening in the brain (especially since dreams have so much reliance on important/current memories). That's my theory at least.

Excuse me
We have to sleep because it is essential to maintaining normal levels of cognitive skills such as speech, memory, innovative and flexible thinking. In other words, sleep plays a significant role in brain development.A good way to understand the role of sleep is to look at what would happen if we didn't sleep. Lack of sleep has serious effects on our brain's ability to function. If you've ever pulled an all-nighter, you'll be familiar with the following after-effects: grumpiness, grogginess, irritability and forgetfulness. After just one night without sleep, concentration becomes more difficult and attention span shortens considerably.(I got this of the internet)

that 25 tons thing, I guess Ants are more developed than us, they know how to use their muscles "in one direction" and they also know how to use their eyes fully.

"humans are the superior creatures" my ass... my undeveloped ass.

We are only superior because of our ability to create technology. If we didn't have this brain of ours. We would be a shit stain on the evolutions tree. No we would be extinct.
