Facts that were changed in second draft!

These “facts” were changed after they were shown to be not accurate!
_____________________________________________

#20 originally stated “Broccoli is the only vegetable that is a flower”, It now reads, “Broccoli and cauliflower are the only vegetables that are flowers”.

#76 originally stated “There is a town called Big Ugly, West Virginia”, It now states, “There is an area called Big Ugly, West Virginia”.

ct says that Karate originated in India. That is not true. It originated in Japan. Kung- Fu originated in an area that was close to India so that's probably where they got it from.

That's only if you start doubling the penny on the first day (that is you start with 2 cents on the first day). Then you get $10,737,418.24. I think it's more likely you start with 1 cent on the first day that's doubled on the second and on which equals the value in fact #196.
