Misconceptions

Napoleon was not exceptionally short.

Goldfish have memory and can be trained to navigate through mazes.

Killer whales are dolphins that can kill whales.

I know wikipedia strives for objectivity but this list of misconceptions seems like it's written to bully my ego. See how many misconceptions you have. I have a lot of learning about gyroscopics and fluid dynamics before I have the courage to talk about how bicycles stay up and why blocking part of the garden hose with your thumb sends the water further.

Ah, mighty lists of information. Thanks, wik.
