Dogs only see black and white

Not true! Dogs are not quite capable of seeing the full-color spectrum that humans can, but it isn't just shades of gray for your favorite pups. Dogs see the colors of the world in yellows, blues, and grays. So you may be better off getting a bright yellow toy for your dog than the more common red and orange. Your dog will also have about 20 to 40 percent of human's visual acuity, so anything you can see in the distance is going to look pretty blurry to them. But it's not all downhill for them. Dogs see better in dimmer light and can detect any sort of movement or motion far better than we can.

This is sort of true, but mostly not. According to NASA, visitors to the moon can expect to catch a glimpse of the Great Wall of China… with telescopic lenses and zooming features, but certainly not with the naked eye. You can sometimes see the Great Wall in low Earth orbit, but at those heights, there are plenty of man-made structures you'll catch a glimpse of, like the pyramids. "The only thing you can see from the moon is a beautiful sphere, mostly white, some blue, and patches of yellow, and every once in a while, some green vegetations. No man-made object is visible at this scale," Alan Bean, an astronaut on the Apollo 12, told NASA. Add this one to the list of lies your history teacher told you.

We see it in artwork, in TV shows, and movies that the forbidden fruit referenced in the bible was an apple, right? Not so much. It is never actually referred to as any specific fruit. Many theologists theorize that, given the other geographical landmarks referenced, the fruit was likely a pomegranate or fig.
