The Internet is a great resource for finding and spreading knowledge and information. There’s just one problem: sometimes it’s used to spread information that’s just plain wrong. When enough people read misinformation without double-checking the source, it magically becomes knowledge. Oops!

For instance, did you hear that there are two times as many kangaroos in Australia as there are people? (Yeah, that’s not true.) Or that smoking makes your nipples fall off? (WRONG AGAIN.) Find out how else the Internet has been telling lies all along.

It’s certainly nice to have those things cleared up. Just goes to show, you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the Internet…maybe even this?!

Note: you should definitely believe this – we’re totally telling the truth.
