Lies they told you

When I was little, maybe 10 or so, I had a subscription to CRACKED magazine. It kind of fit me better than MAD did at the time. Anyway, CRACKED seems to have gained new life as a web-based humor site, and they have some pretty good stuff! So here, courtesy of CRACKED, are The 5 Most Ridiculous Lies You Were Taught in History Class. I am gratified that they included the thing about Columbus discovering that the earth was round. That has always bugged me.

Thank you for that article for pointing out the Einstien thing. The Eddie from Ohio song always deeply bothered me because the lyric about Einstein not being good at math was so not true. In fact he got into uni because he did so well on the maths section even though he did badly in the other parts of the exam.
