Vikings never wore helmets with horns (and other useful trivia)

Vikings never wore helmets, Sherlock Holmes never said, "Elementary my dear Watson," and the 100 Years War lasted 116 years. Trivia I learned from ads by age for propmark. The slogan is, "When the advertising is good, it becomes a part of history," and it's hard to argue with the sentiment. (Of course, the ads don't do a very good job of explaining what propmark is.) Via.
