Five facty0things about North America
- Old gold
The Golden Gate Bridge is so long that by the time it has been re-painted, it’s time to start painting it all over again.
- Not so grand
While the Grand Canyon is generally considered the most spectacular canyon on earth, it is neither the longest nor the widest. A show-er not a grow-er.
- Heavy duty
There is a ‘heavy equipment’ playground in Las Vegas. Yes, a place where you can legally play with heavy machinery. Think Excavator Basketball and Bulldozer Teeter-Totter – a risk manager’s dream. As a side note, there are no clocks or windows in casinos in Vegas. Healthy.
- Cheeky chompers
Biting a person with your real teeth is only considered to be simple assault in Louisiana, but taking a bite with false teeth is considered aggravated assault.
- Cute ‘n’ cuddly
Yosemite black bears can weigh up to 230 kilograms when they are fully grown, but they are only a teeny tiny 200 grams when they are born. Dangerously similar to teddy bears.
