Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary

When Americans accidentally introduced an Australian snake to Guam in WWII (World War II), it wiped out all ten species of bird on the island. Then, without birds to keep them in check, the population of spiders exploded.

If you were watching Jeopardy, and Alex Trebek said No, the first world war was in 1929 millions of people would write to complain. Yet when equally incorrect assertions appear on TV, in books or even in school lectures, almost nobody complains, because this is religiously protected misinformation, with even higher sacred cow status than the existence of Santa Claus. We don’t realise how ridiculous it is, because we are so familiar with the religious myths. It is just as silly as if Christians started asserting John McCain were 200 years old, and pounced on anyone who dared suggest otherwise, providing of course no evidence at all for this bizarre assertion.
