The Breakfast Show - Everything You Know Is Wrong! 21/04/09

Hey all,

Today I thought I would enlighten you, (seriously) give the show some take home value so I ran a one day feature dubbed 'Everything You Know Is Wrong,' basically some things you may have learned in school that are wrong. Such as :-

There is no dark side of the moon
You can't see the Great Wall of China from outer space
People knew the Earth was not flat before Columbus
Clouds do not form because of the air's temperature
Meteors are not hot when they land on Earth
Saturn is not the only planet with rings
You won't get a cold just from low temperatures
Seasons are not the same length
Electricity does not travel at the speed of light

and the one which Mead struggled with - Water is BLUE, not just because it reflects the sky - listen

Another thing . . . just an observation (from me who can't drive and wont drive), Have you noticed the petrol prices creeping back up again? It's like they're just sauntering up thinking we won't notice, like a game of 'What time is it Mr Wolf' in the playground. 'What Time Is It?...' Time to buy an electric car by the looks of it.

A new leader of Brentwood Borough Council was also announced on the Breakfast Show this morning by Mike Le Surf, the page is here


Entertainment news today, and we spoke about the 'Hairy Angel' Susan Boyle's ever growing popularity and her spinster crush on Simon Cowell, the premiere of the new Star Trek movie and the desperate housewives - listen
