Interesting list, but I think I’d change the title to “10 Lies You May Have Been Taught In School” – a few of these are no longer in the common curriculum and haven’t been for quite some time. But a few of us older folks may still believe a lot of these to be true.
Now, as far as number 9 on this list goes, well I’m calling straight bullshit. It is well documented that diamonds are, in fact, formed from compressed coal. This was proven way back in 1983 in Superman III – the best one, costarring Richard Pryor, and you can just shut your goddamn mouth if you disagree – when the Man of Steel crushed a piece of coal in his hands to make a diamond for Lois Lane. Take that, science!
Interesting and informative video as usual from Alltime10s, so give it a spin.
