There were 7 sheep on Noahs Ark. (At first. Then everybody got hungry.)

The capital of Thailand is Krung Tape. (False)

Henry the 8th only had 2 wives (False. At no time did he have more than one.)

Alexander Graham Bell did not invent the telephone. (Maybe.)

NASA did not invent Teflon. (Who says they did?)

The hottest part of a chilly is the central membrain (The hottest part of a chilly what? And what the heck is a membrain?)

World War 2 ended in 1992. (BS)

Everything above is fact. (False)

Anyone got any other interesting facts that are the truth to common misconceptions? (no)

Depends on who you ask and when. Since the Pope, and most likely Katheryn herself wouldn't recognize the divorce the second he married that Boleyn girl he had two wives.

However in Henry's eyes he was never really married to Katheryn (the whole basis of his argument to get the marriage annuled) Ann was therefore his first wife.

Payne, have you ever thought of trying to be a contestant on "Jeopardy"? I know a guy who I think could possibly make a mint on that show, but he won't make the attempt. Ever thought about it?

I'd get killed on sports and the early 80's.

Henry the eight was married to:
1.Catherine of Aragon
2.Ann "The Love Machine" Bolyne
3.Jane "The Actress" Semour
4.Ann of Cleves
5.Catherine 'the hitman' Howard
6.Catherine 'Five Under' Parr

thus the answer is six chicks, not two, six, got it? Six, a total of 13 boobs (Ann the first had three of 'em).

Hey, there's an idea for a new game show. Magic Jeopardy! Maybe Alex would be up to doing a special on it for a week and bring in some known magicians as contestants.

And we could add 2 more - Charles Laughton's.

An easy way to remember how many and their fate is

Divorced
Beheaded
Died
Divorced
Beheaded
Survived

For all you SCA Goobers out there. I was squired in 1988 in front of the chapel where Catherine Parr is interred. Beats the heck out of that Elk's Lodge or hay field where most everyone else gets their belt Smile

If you're not in the SCA the preceding paragraph won't make any sense to you so don't worry about it.

Payne, I had an SCA guy who worked for me in the mid 80's. The owner of the company came in and this idiot had on his helmet and was swinging a sword, the owner looked at him, left, next day my clerk was no longer employed! In Berkeley they have a group that does the middle ages the way they think it should have been, you know, two queens, women are knights, dudes are maidens....all that bay area stuff.

Berkley is home to the SCA. The first event was held there back in 66. Needless to say it has gone down hill since then

I'd like to point out two things. First Matt Shepherd is as useless now as he was when he was younger and two to live in the bay area one must be in an area that actually is near the bay...unlike where kcg lives which is neither bay area nor delta, it is, well, just a place.

Well I don't know about Katheryn, but the Pope would then believe that Henry only had one wife, as the second marriage would not be valid.

And if King Henry was a pony he wouldn't have had a wife but would have pulled a cart.
