A deadly mushroom called the cauliflower fungus grows alongside the cauliflower.

The cauliflower fungus exists, but isn’t deadly and doesn’t grow next to the cauliflower. It earned its name not from its proximity, but from its resemblance to the vegetable. The fungus is mostly found at the roots of pine trees, but also grows at the roots of oaks. Cauliflower fungus is edible and has a sweet smell. It grows from late summer to late autumn and dies with the first frost.

Grasshopper Glacier in Montana contains millions of frozen grasshoppers.

The 80-foot cliff of ice, near Yellowstone National Park, contains millions of an extinct species of grasshopper, which had been frozen during a snowstorm. Though the glacier can be reached almost any time via a 14-mile hike through the wilderness, the grasshoppers are best viewed during the summer when enough snow has melted.

J. P. Morgan died penniless after being swindled by a man named Clayton Radley Pennypacker.

John Pierpont Morgan, one of the most prominent financiers of the early 20th century, died a wealthy man in 1913. Morgan acquired his wealth from his powerful banking firm, railroad development, and the mergers that created General Electric and the United States Steel Corporation. After his death, much of his vast collection of books and art became a public reference library in New York City, the Pierpont Morgan Library.

Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore are really the same person, Dumbledore having traveled back in time to help his younger self.

Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore are not the same person. According to J. K. Rowling, none of the characters in the Harry Potter series has come back from the future. The first Harry Potter book was published in 1997. In England, it was titled Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, while in the U.S., it was called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
