Actually Leif Erikson from Iceland discovered America well before Christopher Columbus. Leif Erikson was born in c.970 to c.1020 and discovered it but didn't colonies it, hence why he is unknown of. So he discovered it before Christopher Colombus's great great grandparents were born.

I had one 5 years out of date once. It still looked like food, just like a MacDonald's French fry stops decomposition when it cools to 70° the first time and you find an undated example in every used car if you dig hard enough.

Anyway, yeah it was not "fresh" by any stretch.

Pella was within the borders of Greece ever since the birth of Alexander? Really? So.. Alexander was born after 1913? Because that's when Pella passed into the hands of Greece from Bulgaria, after previously being under the control of the Ottomans. That's interesting. I thought Alexander was much older than that.

They believe it because:every diagram of the circulatory system they ever see has the veins carrying deoxygenated blood shown in blue, and the arteries carrying oxygenated blood shown in red (when in reality the blood is dark red and bright red, respectively)blood and blood vessels seen through skin look blue (due to red light being more readily absorbed by the skin)when people don't get enough oxygen, they turn bluish (this is for the same reasons as above, just applied to darker red blood)most elementary school teachers are not science specialists, and even those who are don't generally do a lesson on "what color is blood," nor do middle or high school science teacherskids (and adults) love showing off with an "I bet you didn't know this!" fun fact that they heard somewhereIn short, it fits what they know just enough to be plausible, no one has taught them otherwise, and it makes them feel smart to know this "little-known fact."

Like half of these are wrong. Fortune cookies are from The United Republic of the Vatican City and Greenland, a young horse is a teenneigher, alcohol cells are killed when you consume them too, petroleum is made of dragons not dinosaurs, you should never end a sentence with any word you end it with a comma, Monte Carlo is the capital of Mongolia, I invented the lightbulb, and I also discovered North America, the correct plural of potato is potati,

I thought the correct capital of the incan empre was cairo (or gizeh) you know like a oversees territory where they got the pyriamds from.

But seriously, bintang is the most popular beer in australia. (Btw I just found out a small beer is called a pony in australia haha) The spicy green paste has to be pesto. Cook discovered north america. And one should obviously never end a sentence with a swear word.

4 years? 4 years and people are still missing the fact that all of the answers are wrong, they are meant to be wrong. Purposely they were given the wrong answer to the questions. The quiz is the April Fool's day quiz, anyone who spends time correcting the answers to try and show some sort of intellectual superiority are the fools.

FOOLS, FOOLS, FOOLS, up and down the comment section, you should all have your levels reset to 0 and have to start over for your lack of attention to detail on a joke quiz.

There're a lot of people correcting the pony and the fortune cookies and such, but it's interesting to see which questions HAVEN'T been corrected. Unless I'm mistaken, I haven't seen anyone try to "correct the questions about Nelson Mandela, Julius Caesar, and prepositions. I wonder if that means those are the most widely believed of these answers? Or if those questions just don't attract the sort of super-pedants that the others do?
