Bill Gates has enough money to send every 18 year old in the United States of America to a 4 year college! (Now that's just ridiculous!)

In the 1830s, Ketchup (or as we Aussies call it, Tomato Sauce) was sold as medicine! (O-M-G!)

      The IQ of anyone that believes the Bush vs. Clinton IQ scores should be questioned as well.

      http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/hoaxes/presiq.asp

      Depending on which political agenda an individual supports, you can find different IQ scores and SAT scores for famous people online... it doesn't make any of them true.

      These tidbits, however, CAN be proven as fact:

      Woodrow Wilson (D) was the ONLY president to hold a PhD. He earned it at Johns Hopkins University.

      George W. Bush (R) was the ONLY president to hold an MBA. He earned it at Harvard Business School.

      Failing to thoroughly research "information" before passing it along is just as ridiculous as stocking faith in "information" without the same effort.
