We learnt a lot of things when we were at school but since the world is evolving everyday, there are new things that are constantly being discovered. This means that many of the things that we learnt in school are now no longer true. Today, we have a chance to relearn a few things that might keep our knowledge in check and save us any future embarrassment.
