1. Eating fish makes you smarter?
I remember those times when mom kept putting fish in everything I ate and ensured that I ate it. She pretty much just wanted me to eat it as a growing child and I am sure she may not have known the relationship with eating fish and smartness. Mom was right after all.

Thanks to Queen Elizabeth I, we don’t pronounce the ‘t’ in ‘often’. Initially, the word was pronounced with the ‘t’ but since Queen Elizabeth I did not pronounce it some people started following her foot steps and as time went on, they forgot the real pronunciation of the word.
