All too often, bad ideas can be like a virus — one person gets something wrong, and they spread it to others. There are so many pieces of common knowledge that are just absolutely, certainly incorrect, and yet, these misunderstood facts are parroted around like they were the gospel truth.
That's why, today, we're going to take the time to set things right. These misunderstood facts will be misunderstood no more. A recent AskReddit thread popped up that asked the internet which facts the internet knows are oftentimes as wrong as wrong can be, and if they could please, finally, for the love of God, set the record straight.
And as it so often does, the internet provided answers. Check out these ostensible experts relaying the facts they know are misunderstood, and their explanations as to what's really going on. You're about to become an expert in a number of areas, but promise you won't use this knowledge for evil. (In this case, beginning any statement with the phrase "well actually" would count as evil.)
