A fascinating collection of misunderstandings, mistakes and misconceptions, "Actually Factually" reveals the reality behind just a few of the myths that get mixed up with truth. If you really thought that Christopher Columbus discovered America or that Henry VIII definitely had six wives this book will bring you right back to Earth with a bump.Full of fantastic facts to wow your teachers, friends and family, the entries include: your hair and nails continue to grow after you die; a goldfish has a memory of about three seconds; water goes down the plughole the other way in Australia; ship's Captains can perform marriage ceremonies; a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human being's; lightning never strikes in the same place twice; eating before you swim is dangerous; pirates made people walk the plank; a dog year is equal to seven human years; 'Ring a Ring O'Roses' is about the Black Death; You only use 10 per cent of your brain; a swan can break a man's arm; you can use an umbrella as a parachute; and the Great Wall of China is the only man-made object visible from space.
