The Comp of General Ignorance 2

I'll upload these once a day, usually around the same time.
Although, on weekends (and holidays) I might make 2 a day.

Fact 1: FALSE! We have 5 senses. The other 'senses' we have are simply things we are aware of due to a combination of the 5 senses (or more specifically, a combination of the many sensory organs). Source: You need to login to view this link

Fact 2: TRUE! The three basic states, solid, gas and liquid, are just that - the basic states. The other states are complexities that come from these states - for example a Plasma is a super-heated ionized gas. Each of the more complex states have unique properties which make them states on their own, but most (if not all) of these will fall in general under the 3 basic structures of gas, solid or liquid.

Fact 3: FALSE! While it is true that both the Moon and Earth revolve around the barycenter, this does not mean that the Earth is revolving around the moon. The Moon has no effect on the Earth's rotation, however the Earth has a profound effect on the Moon's rotation. As such, the Moon revolves around the Earth, but not the other way around. Source: http://library.thinkquest.org/29033/begin/earthsunmoon.htm

Fact 4: FALSE! A 'Moon' is defined as a 'Natural satellite', which means an object that naturally orbits around another object. Many candidates have been set forward for Earth's second Moon, but all have been proven false as they do not periodically orbit the planet. Too many sources to link in this one, but the Wiki has some good citations to check out for fact checking (I did use the citations). Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Other_moons_of_Earth

Fact 5: IRRELEVANT! As shown by Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, speed is relative! When through a diamond, light is moving slowly relative to you, who is at 0. But, relative to something travelling in the opposite direction as the light it is much faster! Explained well here: http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=291445

All these facts have been said on QI (Quite Interesting). Seen them on TV and read them in the QI book.

1.) Those four sound like just touch.  
2.) There is only solid, liquid, gas, and plasma.  
3.) Luna goes around the sun; Earth is not massive enough to have its own moon, and is merely in a tidal lock with Luna.  
4.) I wouldn't know.  
5.) Light only travels so fast in specific conditions, of course any hindering substance will slow it down.  
  
You weren't too off on some of your things, but I'd check your sources. The more you know... bring on the red thumbs to my comment.

Actually, All of those states of matter are contained within the 4 solid, gas, liquid, and plasma. those are just classifications inside those ones.
