As much fun as the movies are to review and the news is to analyze, it's the everyday misconceptions that to me are the heart and soul of Bad Astronomy. We learn a lot from school and our parents, but a lot of what fills our brain is "common knowledge", things we seem to accumulate out of thin air. Everyone knows that you can stand an egg on end on the first day of spring... or can you? Of course toilets flush the other way in the southern hemisphere... don't they? It's these types of concepts that got these pages started in the first place. A lot of what we "know about astronomy really just isn't right. These pages are my humble attempt to set the record-- and your brain-- straight about the world's real oldest profession.
