I was going to point-out several others (# 22 - Mythbusters also, @ Crakr and chalket but Runemang beat us all to the punch)

Speaking of "Orange" though

@studioso ("purple = circle, orange = storage, porridge)
I don't think those are considered proper rhymes. It's tantamount to the pervasive use of the term 'nigga' when one can think of nothing else to
compliment
a word ending with an 'a', but not technically rhyming
with it. To rhyme, I believe at least the last two letters of a monosyllabic word have to produce perfect homonymic synchronicity (disregarding spelling anomalies like double-esses). In multi-syllabic words, I believe the same effect has to be produced with at least the final syllable of our rhyming word's predecessor.

These stupid "facts" are still kicking around? I'm surprised the one about a duck's quack not echoing isn't on here. The list is hardly complete without it...complete bull, that is.

I tried to look up how many of these were incorrect but my search proved infecundous.

Ok, so the only fact you highlight is completely incorrect:

www.snopes.com/business /money/redensign.asp

so that makes it hard to enjoy the rest of list.

"Why the hell would the American flag be on Canadian money?"

To commemorate the Canadian/American war when the US occupied their capital.

@tatripp How about "Go." ?
Also a command with the implied subject (you) and the verb, go. Plus, it's one letter shorter.

While the 2 dollar bill has not even existed in Canada for years, a simple google search, or look into the envelope of old bills in my dresser) says, nope, that flag is Canadian. as for the clocks in Pulp Fiction, after I heard this "fact" a long time ago, I made it a point to verify this during my next viewing - it's a lie.

We have 2-dollar bills? Wait, do we even have 1-dollar bills? It's all automated debit card up here north, seeing as it's 2013 and all.

Snopes is your friend. It is not the American flag. Why the hell would the American flag be on Canadian money?

48 is wrong. I have my BA in English and I can come up with a shorter complete sentence on the spot:
"Run."
My sentence is an imperative or command and the implied subject is (you) and the verb is run.

on number 7: there are more than one 9 letter word that is a single syllable. Strengths, Stretched...screeched is just one of many.
