Also see South Park’s S15E13 episode where the boys get taped with statements about a History Channel show they saw, which is then used in the follow-up of that show as actual fact.
Here on bram.us I have this post named “My lighter”. It contains a quote from a song by The Streets that says “Did you know cigarette lighters were invented before matches” along with some snippet (which I got somewhere from the internet) that confirms this. For a while my post was linked to from Wikipedia, as the confirmation that the cigarette lighter indeed was invented before the match. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
