Not all of them.
2. Alfred Hitchcock did in fact, have a belly button. At one time. He had many surgeries in his life and skin had gotten stretched over it but he had one. A technicality, to be sure, but he had one.
16. We do not swallow spiders while sleeping. Snopes and a number of arachnologists have covered this a bunch of times. But then who reads about archanologists except for me, who thinks spiders are cool.
18. Spiders can see behind themselves without turning around. Typically they have two eyes on the backs of their heads. In fact most spiders and insects can see behind themselves without moving.
The rest are true as far as I can tell.
