We are not entering into the debate here. It just raises an interesting thought on the preconceptions and commonly held beliefs that become established ‘facts’ simply by being repeated enough or communicated via the Internet. Since time immemorial mankind has had a predilection for not letting facts get in the way of a good story:
· Napoleon was short… he measured 5 feet 2 inches, which made him slightly taller than the average Frenchman of the 19th century.
· The croissant is French… it came from a type of pastry made after the Battle of Vienna to celebrate the defeat of the Ottomans, as a reference to the crescents on the Turkish flags.
· Aeroplanes fly faster west-to-east… Aeroplanes flying long distances between two places usually take less time flying west-to-east than east-to-west because they benefit from natural air currents called jet streams
