Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

We've all got brain-pictures about what the past was like, inserted by school, history books, and pop culture through the years. In our ongoing effort to be as insufferable as possible, we've compiled some facts that will fly straight in the face of the stuff you think you know about history.
