I don't know how many of these I can actually believe now, because not only are you wrong about the Disney movie "fact", as others pointed out, but you're also wrong about there being Superman imagery in every episode of Seinfeld. That's an urban legend. For example, the episode where they're in a parking garage almost the whole time doesn't have any image of superman in it.
