#41 - 5 or 7 continents? Using the 5 continent belief, only three start and end with the same letter..Africa, Asia, Europe...Oceania and The Americas do not.

8: I very much doubt the Canadian $2 note had an American flag, I imagine it's a flag from the countries time as a British overseas territory. Look at any country that has a British flag in its quater, without detail it looks like an American flag.

I would like to see the source to this as I don't believe it.

#8 It was actually the dominion flag wich had the union jack and the Canadian coat of arms on it ....no stripes on the flag.

Yeah, I'm very hurt by a supposed error in currency that hasn't been in circulation in decades.

N3: The first grand prix was organised after a mountain goat was seen tumbling down a mountainside.

(while technically true, this statement horrifically misrepresents the facts and would therefore probably be overqualified for this list)

As to #8... I have a Canadian two dollar bill and it has a CANADIAN flag flying above our Parliamentary buildings... don't believe this. It makes me wonder if any of these other things are true.

At least 15 of these are incorrect. Just shows how naive people are.

#8 is wrong, The flag is Canadian. and we don't even have a $2 bill anymore , we replaced it with a $2 coin in 1996

"Myth- An American flag is flying over the Parliament buildings on Canadian paper money. This is not the case. The Birds series bills depict a Union Flag flying over Parliament on the $100; a Canadian Red Ensign (a former Canadian flag) on the $5, $10, and $50; and the modern maple-leaf flag was on the $2 bills. (The $20 depicts the Library of Parliament, with no flag visible.) Those "taken" by the rumour were likely fooled by the bills with the Red Ensign, as the flags are very small and not shown in full colour, and the Ensign with its contrasting canton somewhat resembles the American flag "

Some are really imaginative.

Slotherder: No, the phonemes are different. "Raenge" versus "oringe".

auburnjunky: Neither does Oceania.

doesn't "range" rhyme with "orange"? ...or is that cheating?

I saw a Mythbusters episode that debunked the "goldfish have 3 second memories" claim, which means all of these are suspect.
