Slavery in the Netherlands (mainland) 

In the Dutch republic (doesn't exist anymore), the Dutch did 'not accept' slavery. That doesn't mean they went against it. As inventors of capitalism, property law was (and is) more sacred than god. Although initially it was only Christians who couldn't be slaves.

The longest wall in history is not Great Wall of China, it was Great Wall of Benin, it was about four times bigger than the Great Wall of China.

Here you can see Sauron is building Orc army by giving each Orc an ID. They later turn into researchers as registered on ORCID.org.

Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

Google memories (1/x) 

y'all going to laugh, but I really believed it. I drank the kool-aid. this was the mid-00s, a tech company with a motto "don't be evil" still felt daring rather than cringe – for an alienated techie like past me, at least; my politically aware friends tried to warn me; but I didn't realise that Google leveraged its fine-tuned advertising machinery also for recruiting, and I swallowed the whole thing.
