Top 5 Famous People Who Didn’t Actually Exist

Posted in August 2011

5. Pope Joan
One of the most famous Popes of all time is the one that modern day scholars believe probably didn’t exist. Pope Joan was a figure who was once believed to have served as Pontiff for a few years around 853-855 A.D. Her story first appeared in the 13th century writings of a Dominican Friar called Jean De Mailly, and for centuries it was a well-known legend in Europe. The tale came in many forms, but the most popular version described Joan as pious and brilliant woman who, after disguising herself as a man, rose quickly through the ranks of the Catholic Church and was chosen as Pope. Her reign supposedly came to an end when, while riding on horseback one day, she suddenly fell ill and gave birth to a child. Here the story takes many different turns: some versions say she died in childbirth, others say natural causes, and others still say that an angry mob murdered her. While historians have found enough evidence to reject the idea that Pope Joan ever really existed - some have claimed that the tale originated in a satirical story about Pope John XI - there’s no denying her legend played a major part in the religion of the Middle Ages. Religious scholars and popular writers like Boccaccio often made references to her, and there are reports of statues of her being erected. The legend persisted for several hundred years, and it took until 1601 before Pope Clement VIII officially denied the story.

By Ashley Turner

Here is our mini me list of small sized mobile phones. We keep this list up to date with new record breaking midget mobiles constantly, pick up your magnifying glass and scroll down to start!
As technology becomes more and more advanced, the devices that contain it becomes smaller and smaller. With the meteoric rise in popularity of smartphones, the demand for a device that is small enough to comfortably carry around, but that also contains all those features we have come to expect from a modern phone, has also increased. Consumers will no longer put up with large, bulky and ugly handsets. Instead, they expect sleek, cool and well-designed phones. Most of the time this means making handsets smaller and smaller, without reducing the number of features available. With this in mind, we have compiled a concise guide to the smallest mobile phones in the world.

5. Cnemidophorus Uniparens
These lizards might look normal on the outside, but on closer investigation, a surprising fact is revealed: some species, such as the New Mexico Whiptail, consist entirely of females. They undergo Parthenogenesis, which is embryo fertilization without a male, to produce new offspring. Despite this, however, these lizards still “mate” to increase fertility.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s 10 Worst Signings

By John McDougall

During his tenure as Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson has been prolific in signing young talent and turning them into top-quality players. However, nobody is perfect and during his 25 years at the helm of England’s most successful club, he has had his fair share of what turned out to be shocking forays into the transfer market. In response to my previous article chronicling Ferguson’s best 10 signings, and in the interest of fairness, here are his worst 10 purchases in the transfer market. Again, on similar lines to my first article on Fergie's Best Signings, I have tried to compile the list based on how terrible the player was, the transfer fee wasted on them, and any pitiful amounts they were sold for. Also, this list is purely confined to players whom Ferguson has bought in the transfer market so, regrettably, there is no room for Jonny Evans and his ilk in all this.
