* Napoleon Bonaparte (pictured) was not especially short. After his death in 1821, the French emperor's height was recorded as 5 feet 2 inches in French feet. This corresponds to 5 feet 6.5 inches in modern international feet, or 1.686 metres
Al Gore never directly said that he invented the Internet. What he did say was, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet".
Mussels that do not open when cooked may still be fully cooked and safe to eat
Sushi does not mean raw fish,
Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker or coarser or darker.
t's a common myth that an earthworm becomes two worms when cut in half. This is not correct.
Bats are not blind.
I heard that Sarkozy is shorter than Napoleon was. And, yes, my favorite sushi is barbecued eel...
Didn't care. But, thank you I learned something new.
He is correct, the schematic for the internet was made by someone else. Gore only helped fund it(creating it).
Haven't a clue, don't know what they are.
Don't know true or not. Don't eat sushi.
I don't think it matters, with regard to "how" it grows back, because it just needs to be shaved over again.
I do not know.
Bats are technically blind according to human definition of blind. However, a bats sight is based on vibrations of sound, which it uses like a radar for guidance.
That was pretty cool. Thank you Sunforged.
It was fun!
I have long believed three of them, although I am mindful that you yourself are quoting from Wikipedia I never know what to believe these days.
Yes, its best to follow through and check the sources at Wiki before making any life changing decisions... and then the sources of that article and then even take that with a grain of salt..or just believe everything you read and save the salt for your next tequila shot
I believe that nothing you say on hubpages never ever has any whiff of irony around it
I hope that you don't read too many of my hubs then
why are they not true............. I do not believe it.
Depends which one, there may be a few white lies in my sales pages. I prefer to call it being "economical with the truth". Just to give you an example, I have a hub called 'The 3 Best Remote Control Tower Fans'.... do you believe that I own or have rigorously tested 3 different types of remote control tower fans? Or alternatively, owned or tested hundreds of tower fans to find the best 3?
I own one of them. I simply read all of the Amazon reviews, that is pretty standard.... So yep, sorry, there are certain inaccuracies in some of my hubpages. Well, I'm not sorry, that is effectively what marketing is.... a load of bullshit.
of course it does not, of course, it is all present and correct.
Oh...and at the recommendation of Dr. Oz, I shave those pesky chin hairs that come with age
try pulling them out with tweezers, they do not grow back quite so thick, as shaving them......
...wish someone would have woke me up in my sleep walking days...maybe the cat wouldn't have been afraid of me for 3 weeks...still don't know what I tried to do to it!!!
SunForged, I think you have a real future as a Wikipedia spammer.
The internet was invented by Vinton Cerf for the US Department of Defense in 1973.
Antarctic ice caps are actually growing instead of shrinking.
These are fun. I could come up with thousands of of these.

Why don't facts change a person's opinion?More than 30 years or research show that attempts to refute false information often backfire and lead people to hold on to their misperceptions even more strongly. Source: Christopher Graves, the Harvard Business Review (February 2015), Why do...
