          Funny thing about #7 is how those mistakes kinda just turn into alternate Bible stories. Who wouldn't be interested in reading about the Son who came from thy Lions, or Rebecca and her Camels? Likewise, who wouldn't be fascinated by the blessings of the Placemakers or the wrath of the Printers?

            German Chocolate Cake, should be German's Chocolate Cake, a man with (I believe) the last name German submitted a recipe to I THINK a contest but it somewhere became just German Chocolate Cake.

                  Sir, I did not find it interesting, I found it hilarious! BTW, you forgot about Vice President Daniel Quayle. ask him to spell "potato" and he will either spell it with an "e" or turn into the Hulk, blowing a gasket. :-)

                    I don't know if is true or not, but I always have been told that the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico got her name because the firsts Spanish explorers who arrived there. The story goes that when the first Spanish expedition arrived to those shores quickly met some indigenous people to whom they asked what was the name of the place where they were. The indegens answered something similar to Yucatan, so that the name. The case is that Yucatan ment I don't understand in their native tongue

                        your Novi (NO-vy, not No-vee)story is a popular urban legend, but not actually supported by anything. The accounts that claim to give details on what the '' was referring to all list things that didn't exist until at least a few decades after the name had already been officially adopted.

                          A googol is NOT a ten with a hundred zeros after it, it's a ONE with a hundred zeros after it. Alternatively, it can be as a ten with a smaller 100 written as a superscript above and to the right of the 10.

                                                            Albuquerque was supposed to have been properly spelled Alburquerque until 1895, when a postmaster spelled it without the "r"... however, I think that the revised spelling was actually a popular misspelling as I've seen a few pre-1895 sources that use today's spelling.
