Welcome to the world of near fiction or perhaps it is near science. The best stories have always been those that are true but maybe not totally true – We readily accept this idea in writings like historical novels and movies like docu-dramas. So why not in science? The following stories are true or not – only you can decide but don’t be too quick to judge until you check it out. By that, I mean, use the web to see if you can find “anything” in these stories that is not based on real or possible science. You might be surprised.
