First there’s education, then there’s re-education. It’s probably not shocking to most people that a lot of what your high school teachers told you wasn’t exactly based on years of committed study. You might have even had one or two who printed their lesson plans off of Wikipedia. Because of that, it isn’t that shameful if you still believe an urban legend or two about history.

Thankfully for those of us who are autodidactic, the internet exists and there’s a whole wealth of short videos that can cram a few new facts into your brain with only a few minutes worth of your attention. Then again, you also don’t have any excuse for believing this list of urban legends any more. But seriously, who still really thought that Napoleon was short?

If you didn’t, you can watch above to redeem yourself a little bit at the next dinner party where you embarrass yourself in front of the history major.
