When I was an 8th grade, there was a substitute teacher in my civics class. I remember that he asked the class what the definition of a fact was, and the first kid he called on said it's something that can be proven to be true. And he said no, actually a fact is something that can be proven to be true or false, therefore there existed both true facts and false facts, and facts are distinguished from opinions, which are statements that cannot be proven true or false. I'm not sure if "real" and "true" mean the same thing here - could a statement be "real" but not true? Regardless, I still remember this substitute teacher's explanation many years later.

I admit that the cable cars one threw me. I couldn't imagine any other national monuments that could be mobile, until I found out that the cable cars aren't actually a national monument. It's listed on the national register of historic landmarks, but it's definitely not the only one of those that's mobile (many ships are on the list).

I used to loooove Snapple as a kid. Any time my family went on a trip longer than 2 or 3 hours, I'd buy one for the road. I used to even collect the caps! I guess I really never thought about just how absurd and misleading (if not outright wrong) these facts are until now. Even then, like kal said some of these seem weird enough to be real.

everything's a chemical, you're fingers you used to type this are chemicals, the pixels appearing as you type are chemicals, even pure water we all drink is a chemical. Chemicals are literally just substances with a chemical formula, which encompasses literally everything ever except for maybe subatomic particles.

I went round a banana plantation in St Lucia and the guide described bananas as being herbs. Checking on Wiki and we find that the banana plant is the largest herbaceous flowering plant, indicating that in this case, the snapple cap may have been correct. So while the edible bit of the plant (the banana) is correctly described as a fruit, the plant as a whole is actually a herb. A banana plant has no woody parts growing above ground - the 'trunk' is not a trunk, but a stem. This satisfies another 'herb' characteristic.

But the *plant* is an herbaceous plant. This doesn't mean the banana itself is an herb. It may not be completely false, but it's misleading.

Taking a brief respite from my self-imposed comment ban to say: while it is not technically impossible to fold a piece of paper more than 7 times, it is extremely difficult, and while this is hard to even comprehend if you do the math it checks out: fold a standard piece of paper in half 103 times and how thick do you think it would be? If you answered anything other than 93 billion light years, a.k.a. the width of the observable universe, you are incorrect.

Well...But the paper required would be so large that it would break apart unless it were thicker. If it were thicker, it would not be as foldable.
