    Hahahahaha ... I read this from the mobile phone news yesterday (or the day before?), and it fits perfectly into this category ...

    Apparently, kids in primary school are taught that Edison's mother had appendicitis, so a doctor came to his home to operate on her, but the light of the candle was too weak, so he gathered them and reflected the light by a mirror ...

    The objection (which is a joke in itself) is that, appendicitis was first discovered in 1886, while Edison was born in 1847 ... and the counter was that the first case of appendicitis was in 1723, and in a 1940 movie, Edison did use mirrors to reflect light ...

    Next thing you know, they will teach kids that Jesus is Chinese, Moses is Japanese and Lincoln is Canadian ... hahahaha ... oh, wait, Lincoln is NOT Canadian, right?
