10. Bulls are enraged by the color red. FALSE
Bulls, along with all other cattle, are color-blind to red. Thus, the bull is likely irritated not by the muleta's color, but by the cape's movement as the matador whips it around.
bulls, like all cattle, are dichromatic. They have only one visual pigment in the red part of the spectrum, which allows them to distinguish blue from other colours, but makes it impossible to separate red from green.Turns out, the color red isn't what causes bulls to attack. In fact, bulls don't seem to have any color preference at all. They'll charge whichever object is moving the most, which means this old myth can get tossed right out of the ring.

Plucking a gray hair will only get you a new gray hair in its place because there is only one hair that is able to grow per follicle. Your surrounding hairs will not turn white until their own follicles’ pigment cells die.
When you pluck a hair a new one will grow in its place and because the pigment cells are no longer producing pigment, this new hair will also be white
