These lists of factoids can be fun, but should never be taken as proven facts. There are at least three in this list that are easily proved wrong:
-There is a city called Rome on every continent.
There are no cities at all on Antarctica.
-It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open
For the Mythbusters TV show, one of the presenters was repeatedly filmed sneezing while holding his eyes open.
"Almost" is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order.
Here are some longer ones: addeems, alloquy , beefily, billowy
Others are written in such a way as to make unproven assertions, such as
"-Owls are the only birds who can see the colour blue."
Lists like this are fun, and can be very useful indeed if they teach those who read them not to believe everything they read without checking for themselves.
