Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have lived my life in complete ignorance. I always thought ponies were simply young horses. A young horse is actually called a foal and they cannot in fact be ridden.

Did anyone else not know this? Am I alone?

@Marc: He'll be closing "Did anyone realize that salamanders are not lizards?" on Friday. – Bill the Lizard Nov 10 '09 at 17:52
"Are lizards reptiles or amphibians?" "Why does 'lizard' sound so much like 'wizard'?" "Are geckos lizards?" "Can lizards sell car insurance?" – mmyers Nov 10 '09 at 17:58
Somebody send TheTXI the memo, so he is ready on friday ;) – perbert Nov 10 '09 at 20:10
