I have to bookmark it to finish the read. Very long. Here is a teaser from that article.

Lemmings do not engage in suicidal dives off cliffs when migrating. This misconception is due largely to the Disney film White Wilderness, which shot many of the migration scenes on a large turntable in a studio. Photographers later pushed the lemmings off a cliff using a broom.

@OGIONIK,
I read this yesterday but didn't respond.
Out of that whole long column of factoids, I think I learned exactly one thing that I didn't already know. And now, a day later, I've forgotten what that was.
