It seems that there are some on the forum that are unfamiliar with what the word "fact" actually means and use it repeatedly to define every half-ass opinion they have on anything. So in an effort to assist those who the public education system has failed, here's a handy definition of the word:

From dictionary.com:





something that actually exists; reality; truth: Your fears have no basis in fact.


something known to exist or to have happened: Space travel is now a fact.


a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true: Scientists gather facts about plant growth.


something said to be true or supposed to have happened: The facts given by the witness are highly questionable.


Law. Often, facts. an actual or alleged event or circumstance, as distinguished from its legal effect or consequence.

Sorry to get all grammar nazi, but it's been bugging me to see so many threads lately with retarded things like "FACT: Axl is a gillion billion times better than he ever was" or "FACT: Slash is better than every other guitarist in the world combined". I know it's just a message board, but basic comprehension goes a long way. The More You Know!
