But if you are ever in doubt, check the resources. The internet cannot change that.
What he can do, however, is still have some safe fun with him. Since anyone can write and edit anything on Wikipedia, it has become a bit of a sport among Internet users to slip details that otherwise would never be present in an encyclopedic article. Note that this is considered a form of vandalism and if you are going to do it, do it how this twitter page does so, harmlessly with the Inspect Elements tool.

bored panda collected the best of the best posts found on the page and created the neat little listicle for you to enjoy below.
