Well, we’re happy to save you from your next bedridden anxiety attack by saying that this is in fact, is no fact at all.
Arachnids are a much smarter family of insects than most think, and crawling into a person’s mouth is simply not something they do. While we’re not saying that this never happened in the history of mankind, there is absolutely no evidence that makes the “three spiders a year” myth something you should take seriously.
There Are Left-Brained and Right-Brained People
Some people are more analytical, while others tend to think more abstractly. The first kind is commonly referred to as “left-brained,” and the latter is called “right-brained.” While these traits do exist, they tend to manifest themselves over a spectrum rather than a binary choice of nature.
The right side of our brain governs mostly behaviors that relate to dealing with the unknown, while the left side focuses on things that are known. So, while the two brain hemispheres have different functions, they work together in tandem. We simply exercise the functions of one side more often than the other.
Napoleon Was a Short Man
Napoleon was one of the world's most feared and respected military leaders back in the early 19th century. He became emperor of France in 1804 after successfully campaigning during the French Revolutionary Wars. He was also as tall as your average European, despite popular belief to the contrary.

Getting cold is actually a symptom of your body activating its immune system and fighting other perceived threats it wants to neutralize. Catching colds is actually a sign of a strong immune system, and the more cold symptoms you get, the quicker your immune system responds.
The Eiffel Tower Has the National Motto Written in Braille
Contrary to popular belief, the Eiffel Tower does not actually have the national motto written in braille along its "legs." While the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" is an idea that is entrenched in French culture, apparently they weren't committed to the idea to the point of plastering it on their iconic landmark.
The motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" was coined and became the legacy of the Age of Enlightenment
