Wee on A Jellyfish Sting and Other Fibs That Simply Aren't TrueBook - 2012 ie 2011
It's amazing how many half-baked notions, crazy rumours from the internet and recycled musty old myths get mistaken for the truth. Many well-meaning people may not realise that what they are telling you is, in fact, complete twaddle. Maybe it sounded convincing to them, or maybe they think it's a useful fact. But sadly, no. Get ready to bust some major myths, such as: Camels carry water in their humps. Saint Patrick was Irish. The cheetah is the world's fastest animal. Goldfish have a 3-second memory. Haggis comes from Scotland. And loads more! This book is a start, at least, on the road to exposing and explaining some of these crazy notions and busting these musty myths.
