Did you think Everest was the tallest mountain in the world? Or that giving kids sugar makes them hyper? Or that Albert Einstein was bad at math? Well, it turns out you were duped. We all were. Ripley's Believe It or Not!, the multimedia franchise devoted to all things weird, has produced this list of facts that refuse to be true no matter how many people believe them. It's a sobering reminder of how much we rely on received information. It's also good for laughing at people who believed more of these things than you did.
