    9. White-Out is actually Wite-Out.

    There's a famous statue of a man resting his chin on his hand, however many folks recall him resting his forehead on his fist. Most interesting are the amount of written texts in which people describe it being his forehead, not his chin.

    15. The order of colors on traffic lights.


    Some folks recall the order of traffic light colors being green at the top, then yellow, then red. In reality, it's red, yellow, green.
