i think its despicable that someone is undermining the patriotic endogmation of our elementary school. I will never forget in 3rd grade when i learned that washington could have been a british general, if they had let him. God bless america!!!

If the first misconception isn`t that he was born 181 years ago, the whole video is flawed.

I knew all of those and I`m American, @5cats.

another note:
Also there are some historical accounts of there being 4 to 6 Presidents who were black before George.

I knew 3 of those, and I`m a Canadian!

@Gerry1: There exists several sets of "wooden George Washington Teeth" because they were made as molds for the more elaborate ones he actually used. You`re right, it`s easier to sculpt wood than ivory, which is why a mold was made first. That`s also why they`ve survived, they weren`t used!
That`s what I`ve read, anyhow.

He did have wooden dentures.
The teeth part were made of ivory & such
but the gums were whittled from wood to get
a custom fit.

chicagojay: When your roomie is watching an old movie and keeps turning up the volume while you try to watch the day`s IAB vids, the lettering helps quite a bit. >grumble<

This trend of having the words appear as they are said, is dumb. Also, it is stupid. In conclusion, it is lame. Just show the damn sentence.
