False Trivia - Random Trivia Questions

You undoubtedly receive lists of trivia in your e-mail inbox occasionally. The first time you read these "facts", you might think, "Wow! I didn't know that." The more skeptical among you probably wonder, "Is that really true?", and in many cases you'd be right!
