Not Bad!
You have either great knowledge or a great brain or probably both, you've found a large part of the false facts even though we tried our best to make them believable. Really good job, but you still have some room for improvement...
 
Aren't We Know-It-Alls?
And we're glad you are! What a superb display, good for you! You must have a pretty great memory and/or a sense of unfailing logic that utilizes what you know of the world and allowed you to 'sniff out' the wrong facts. Congrats on acing our quiz!
