What do we know, and what do we only think we know? From lashings of ginger beer to the tooth fairy, from “eating bread crusts will make your hair curly” to “if the wind changes, your face will stay like that”, we talk about old wives tales and kids stories, rumours, myths and legends.

Which of us is convinced she knows the proper quote from Star Wars? Who was disappointed when Dirty Harry doesn’t actually say “do you feel lucky, punk?” Who is entirely furious at anti-rationalist, science-denialist flat-earthers?
