well, 24 of them I knew only by paying attention in class at school. The internet keeps getting dumber and dumber with wider spread internet access and a record of literate people to have ever lived on Earth at the same time. Literate, actually being able to press keys on a keyboard, should not define our age.

It has something to do with pressure, knowing your own blood would boil at an altitude of "only" 19KM, at just 95°F. In space, without pressure, i guess water would boil way more easilly. Thats why you need a suit if you plan to get to an high altitude and thats why planes are pressurized.

"The chemical elements are organized in order of increasing atomic number." Umm, I think you mean "On the Periodic Table ..." Without that qualifier, this statement is meaningless. At the chemical supply house or in the chemist's lab they might be stored in alphabetical order, or with those used most frequently near he front, or in hundreds of other ways. I sincerely doubt that factories always store iron ingots to the left of copper ingots because iron has a smaller atomic number. I certainly don't store chemicals in my kitchen in order by atomic number.

Just to be pedantic: Many of these "chemistry facts" are really "biology facts". The one about cigarette lighters doesn't seem to me to have much to do with chemistry or any other basic science. Yes, there are chemicals in a cigarette lighter, but there are chemicals in everything. George Washington's body contained chemicals, but that doesn't make "George Washington was the first president of the United States" a "chemistry fact".
