1) Lol far from it.
2) 1 A.D. Like it or not, that's how the calendar was defined a long time ago, there is no year 0...
3) Venus is hotter because of its extreme atmosphere.
4) It's technical, but the pope is only infallible when he speaks of faith and morals.
5) Nope, massive increase.
6) Otis Redding
8) San Francisco 1940

12) Mohandas. Mahatma is a title.
13) Well, while I do actually think that Shakespeare was the pen name of somebody, it was certainly not those two.
14) Those words are from Shakespeare.

I think 9 is because the song was written by Prince originally.
For number 10, I know they went for more of a herd immunity approach, but I don't think they had the highest COVID death rate.
For number 17, it's basically just a rumour someone started at some point: Snopes article
Number 10, I think the worst death rate is in Czechia, but I don't know where to check for 2020 only. Anyways, Sweden is not the worst.
The Pope is only infallible when he speaks "ex cathedra" - and there are a whole set of criteria to be met for a proclamation to be considered "ex cathedra". In fact, in the whole History of the Papacy, these criteria have only been met by two proclamations: on the Immaculate Conception in 1870, and on the Assumption of Mary in 1950. On everything else, Popes are potentially wrong. Of course, they're also wrong in these two instances, but then again, I'm not a catholic, so what do I care...
Happy April Fools Day!!! 🤣🤥
- my favourite one of those!
And yeah, like someone else said, you always learn stuff from these. I thought ring-a-roses was a bubonic plague thing.
