Of course it's BS, it's something taught in school.
 
Here's an incomplete list of things taught in school:
- you can't subtract a bigger number from a smaller one.
- if you do it anyway, you can't take the square root of that.
- all numbers can be written as a ratio between integers.
- fallow deer grow up to be moose.
- ponies grow up to be horses.
- ladybugs gain a black dot every year they live.
- various spelling- and grammar rules, all of which have so many exceptions that they're essentially useless.
