as some of you may know, a lot of the things that are listed here are complete bullshit.

the most hideous error: last picture.

velocity is the difference of speed at a point B compared to point A. its other name is acceleration and is described with the unit m/s².

also velocity DOES NOT take into account the direction in which you move. veolocity has NO vector

Typically alligators are freshwater and crocodiles exist in brackish or saltwater.

I was always told that a boat is <100 feet and a ship is 100 feet or more. I have a 'rich' family friend that purposely added to his 95 foot yacht to turn it into a ship since he had always wanted to own one.

Dracula's actual name was Vlad the 2nd Dracul, Dracul meaning "The Devil" in Romanian. That was because his father was a member of the Order of the Dragon and used to wear a cape with a dragon on it. The peasants did not know what a dragon was, so they assumed Dracula's father wore a cape with a devil on it and started calling him Vlad the Devil (Dracul).
His son, the actual Dracula, was also named Vlad and his father's nickname was passed to him to describe his personality.
Facts about the real Dracula (for who wants to know): he was kidnapped and imprisoned by the Ottomans his whole childhood and teenage years. His real name is Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler). He is seen as a hero by most Romanians because he eradicated crime through horrifying punishments. He discouraged social stratification and wanted everyone to be equal. There is historical evidence that depicts him having lunch while watching many criminals being impaled and ,maybe, even drinking blood. He defeated the Ottomans on countless occasions with his ingenious fight strategies and knowledge of the ways in which the Turks attacked. He disafforestated a huge place, cutting the trees at a "man's height" and dressing them with Romanian clothes so that the place would look like an army ready to attack from far away, and he won that battle. He used to go under cover in the Turkish camps to spy on them and once killed the Pasha(ruler of a deployed Turkish army) in his sleep. In his time gold would sit on the streets if lost, because everyone was afraid of being impaled. Street fountains had gold goblets for people to drink from and they weren't stolen, ever. He was forced by the Ottoman Empire to give up the throne to his brother who had an agreement with the Turks.
