Apparently, the forbidden fruit was never actually specified to be an apple in the bible. Also, while I knew Jesus' actual birthday was not December 25th (some theorize that it was chosen to co-opt the pagan winter solstice celebrations), I did not know that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute, and that the "immaculate conception" didn't refer the virginal status of Mary.

Edit: Good news! Alcohol (mostly) doesn't kill brain cells:

And on that note, I think I'll go have a Friday beer.... cheers!
