You may never believe us, but we are about to present 10 facts that you may have gone your whole life believing were true, but they really aren’t! Don’t forget to return for our coming part two article, featuring the top five most surprising of our 10 debunked fake facts!

Number Ten: Colorful Chameleons. The chameleon has earned the fascination of many for its talent in changing the hues of its skin. Most of us think this to be a survival technique to blend in with surrounds, but that isn’t actually the case. When a chameleon does this, they are actually communicating their mood or warning their enemies.

Number Nine: The Orange. Believe it or not, this fruit was named to be an orange before the color orange came to be (linguistically speaking). Before we specified a name for this color, it was known simply as a variation of red. To classify its unique hue, we named it after the fruit that bore the color.

Number Eight: The Five Senses. As young children, we learn to classify our human sense into five main categories. What most people don’t realize, there are more than simply five. The ability to sense pain, balance, time, pressure, speed, temperature, and about 10 other sensations are also considered to be senses.

Number Seven: Napolean Bonaparte. The famous conqueror Napolean Bonaparte is famous for his ingenious battle strategies and has also gained a comical reputation for being petite. Despite the jokes about his height, the man wasn’t even that short. He was five feet and seven inches in height, which is about two inches taller than the average French man of his generation.

Number Six: Brain Use. Because it has become such a widely spread rumor due to recent drug developments, most people are convinced that humans use only ten percent of their brains at any given time. The basis for this comes from the research on neurons, showing that only about 10% of neurons are transmitting information. However, this happens all over the area of the brain as needed, and other parts on the brain are working as well.
