"All I know is that I don't know nothing", said Plato's Socrates. Actually that is the lyrics of an Operation Ivy song, but it's close. When you peel back the onion you find that you know even less than you thought you did. I am full of not knowing, i'm full of questions, and I can write faster than Plato because I have a computer.

I am not one to shy away from an onion over the fear of a few tears. I apologize in advance if I mucked up an issue. Keep in mind this site is a collective search for truth, not gospel.

As a FactMyth.com author I consider my gig more like 'dirty jobs' than a soapbox speech. I'm not an expert, i'm just a guy with a keyboard who knows how to research and write. Expect nothing less than prolificness and many revisions.

On that note, I need your help to make this internet great again!

My team and I need your help to make this free-to-use site the great community driven site it wants to be. It’s as simple as rating factoids, commenting, and sharing the site. Every contribution matters and every contributor is part of the FactMyth.com team.

Together, we can create an epic novel of fact-checked truthiness that can act as a guidebook for up-and-coming generations. If that sounds lofty, it is. All greatness is lofty.
