Wikipedia is my hero

Looky here: a veritable treasure trove of the ways you are wrong: it's the List of common misconceptions! My favorites:
  • Al Gore invented the Internet
  • The Great Wall of China is visible from space
  • We use only ten percent of our brains
  • Eskimos have twenty words for snow
  • Glass is actually a very slow-moving liquid
I didn't count them, but it looks like there are about a hundred items, each more interesting than the last. The See Also section is a great resource, too.
