The Oldest University (Disrupting Fact #1)

Sorry Brits, but the oldest (still operating) University is not Cambridge nor Oxford. It is the University of Al-Karueein in Morocco (859AD).

Sorry also to my Italian fellows, who always thought it was Bologna (1088AD). On the brighter side for them, Italians still can be proud to have 4 of the oldest 10 still operating, including also Padova, Napoli and Siena.
