ANNE BOLEYN DID NOT HAVE A SIXTH FINGER ON ONE HAND!!!!! EDISON DID NOT INVENT THE LIGHTBULB!!!! AIEEEEEEEE!!!!!!
I would like to smack the fact checker for this upside the head with an encyclopedia. The problem with so many trivia books is is that they are full of crap, and this one is certainly in the majority. I found roughly 30 mistakes (I lost count) by the end, ranging from the insanely inept (Edison - there were at least 8 bulbs on public display at the time of his birth) to useless urban legends (Walt Disney was in a different state than Mickey Rooney's mother when he was single so the two never dated) with most of the items falling in the latter category. The book comes across as just something a bunch of people in a pub threw together in a few minutes off of Wikipedia.
