There you go, now that is interesting!!!!!

No way!!! I've been fooled all these years!! Well, I guess I should have looked at the bill (or coin) before coming up with that one. You almost wanna be Canadian, figures you would know the real truth!

Did you know that in Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

This may upset Isa, but maybe interesting nonetheless...just another fact:

Did you know that drivers kill more deer than hunters every year? (not intentionally of course Isa)

We have a two-dollar coin with an engraving of a polar bear. Maybe that flag was on the old bills, from ages ago...?

And another silly fact:
