Well… they’re not fish. They’re what are known as “echinoderms.”

 

Velvet Ants

 

Velvet ants are actually wasps.

 

Izismile Videos

Panama hats come from Ecuador.

The Battle of Bunker Hill

 

This battle mostly took place on nearby Breed’s Hill in Boston.

Funny Bone

 

Ah, yeah, the classic funny bone that is NEVER funny to hit. It’s not a bone, it’s a nerve, and it’s called the ulnar nerve.

 

Chinese Checkers

 

This game wasn’t made in China & it isn’t even a form of actual checkers. It was invented in Germany and named so for marketing purposes.

While these numbers were introduced to the Europeans by Arabian mathematicians, they were actually invented in India.

#8 Guess what, folks? It WAS the new bridge in when Henry III had it built. That's why they named it the "New Bridge." They just didn't change the name, because... why would they?
