If FactCat says it are a fact, it are a fact.
A Fact provided by Winston Churchill

A highfalutin' term for making shit up. Throwing one of those around could land yourself in Internet court. Before saying that an opinion is a fact please consult the following source and consider it's message before using phrases like "it's a fact" as an order to us for subscribing to your opinions. This sentence = not fact, just opinion, lulz points deducted. [1] It would do well to remind internet pundits the difference between a fact and an opinion.

A fact is a piece of text pasted from a Wikipedia article.[citation needed] In the past a fact was something that could be objectively verified as real, according to the standards of proof demanded by logical positivism and scientific realism. The invention of The Internet made the external justification of facts using peer-reviewed research and education irrelevant, replacing them with a plethora of reliable, electronic means of verification. For a list of facts, see the article on common knowledge.
