apparently 25% of the people they asked thought that Churchill wasn't real, but over 50% thought that Sherlock Holmes was.

anyone care to comment on this? i was laughing for a few minutes after reading it.


and if anyone else posted this already, let me know. it on the front page of yahoo, so someone might have already done this. i searched but didnt see it.

But if you take that literally, it goes with a story I have.

Over half of the people in my history class thought Britain was invaded in WWII and Winston Churchill was captured by Hitler.
