Watching the Jeopardy! Teacher's Tournament from last month, there was this clue about William Henry Harrison: What he said in his inaugural: 'We admit of no govt. by divine right"; what he should have said: "I need a heavier coat!"

I swear to fucking god, WHH dying because he caught a cold while speaking is up there with "90% of your body heat leaves through your head, hands, and feet" the dumbest urban legend that smart people still parrot. But Jeopardy! supposedly has paid fact checkers who should catch this stuff.
