You know about lemmings, right? Those little rodents that commit mass suicide by hurling themselves off cliffs? Everybody knows that.

There's just one problem. It's not true. It's an urban legend, created by some people who were filming an award-winning Disney nature "documentary" back in the fifties. Lemmings are quite real, but their suicidal behavior is not.

So here we have an interesting phenomenon: something everybody knows that's complete and utter bullshit. If that doesn't make you wonder what else you believe that's not grounded in reality, you're not paying attention.

    Your limited imagination offends me degenerate primate!
    I shall make a delicious tomato puree from you.
    One more burst of infidelity from you and you shall become the leader of the Anglican Church!
