The Universe and Beyond

1. Did you know that the Sun is actually white? Its apparent yellow color is due to Earth's atmosphere scattering its light.

2. The Andromeda Galaxy, our closest galactic neighbor, is on a collision course with the Milky Way. But don't worry, it won't happen for another 4 billion years.

3. It might sound like science fiction, but there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth.

History and Culture

4. The Great Wall of China is not visible from space. This is a common misconception that has been perpetuated over the years.

5. Did you know that Cleopatra lived closer in time to the Moon landing than to the construction of the Great Pyramids of Giza?

6. The legendary Viking helmets never actually had horns. This misconception originated from artistic depictions in the 19th century.

Animals and Nature

7. Contrary to popular belief, lemmings do not commit mass suicide by jumping off cliffs. This myth was popularized by a Disney documentary in the 1950s.

8. A group of flamingos is called a flamboyance. How fitting for these vibrant and elegant birds!

9. The slowest animal on Earth is the sloth, which can sleep for up to 20 hours a day.

Science and Technology

10. The tongue is the strongest muscle in the human body relative to its size. So, don't underestimate the power of your taste buds!

11. The first computer mouse was made of wood. It was invented by Doug Engelbart in the 1960s and had two wheels instead of a ball.

12. The periodic table of elements contains 118 known elements. Each element has its own unique properties and atomic structure.

Random and Fun Facts

13. Coca-Cola was originally green in color. The iconic red color we associate with the brand was introduced in the 1900s.

14. The shortest war in history lasted only 38 to 45 minutes. It occurred between Britain and Zanzibar in 1896.

15. Bananas are berries, while strawberries are not. Sometimes, things are not what they seem!

Remember, knowledge is power, and there's always something new to discover in this vast world of ours. So, keep exploring and never stop learning!

If you're looking for a very formal 'True Or False' book written in an informative style similar to that found in an encyclopedia, then this probably isn't the book for you. Many of the facts and bluffs found in this book cover silly or trivial subjects. One or two serious general knowledge facts may have slipped past the quality control department, but on the whole I've tried to keep things light-hearted first, and educational second.

. . . . . . . .

A few words from the author:

One of the things that surprises me about modern society is how even allegedly intelligent people can sometimes be fooled and taken in by tricks, deceptions and outright bluffs. The invention of the internet has created more opportunities to fool people and this potential gullibility of society places a big responsibility on any bluffers to ensure they only use the power of bluffery for fun purposes.

Blufffery should never be used to manipulate people, or to promote anger or bad feeling. It should only be used for having a bit of daft fun, so when I was writing this 'True Or False' book I tried to keep that in mind.

Each section has been researched thoroughly, and on a couple of occasions where opinions differ I've tried to mention both points of view. It's not a test though, so don't worry if you get a few wrong! It's not an exam. It's all just intended as a bit of light-hearted daftness.
