Quiz Description

In light of a newly minted term, an experiment in AF Quizland. Given a generally verified statement, refute it with an alternative fact. You will money the questions that you think will produce the best (worst) alternate fact(s). Some questions may have more than one accepted alternate fact so let your conspiracy theory flags fly. Given the complexity of coming up with answers, this quiz will last several days as will its grading. Q1 is the only question that does not fit the directions.
