He was selected in 2013. 2. On March 13. 3. At 8:13 Rome time. This in fact appears to be true. Dylan Martinez / Reuters 4. He used a triangle gesture. BuzzFeed was unable to find evidence of this. Stefano Rellandini / Reuters 5. Or his curtains did. Fair enough. 6. He is a scientist. This does not seem to be true. He has a degree in philosophy.

John Adams did not like Jesuits. True. 10. True-ish — the space station did take a picture of the Vatican today. Manu Fernandez / AP 11. He is Argentinian, like soccer star Lionel Messi.
