General Tso’s chicken is s popular sweet deep-fried chicken dish that is served in North American Chinese restaurants. The dish is named after Zuo Zongtang (also romanized Tso Tsung-t’ang), a Qing dynasty statesman and military leader. However, there is no recorded connection to him nor is the dish known in Hunan, Zuo’s home province.
The dish is not found in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, or in Xiangyin County, where Zuo was born. Moreover, Zuo’s descendants in Xiangyin County, when interviewed, say that they never heard of such a dish.

The courageous Jamacia National Team during the Winter Olympics, circa 19??! One of the most dangerous sports where they can travel at speeds of up to 90 MPH.
Wait a minute!
That doesn’t look anything like a bobsled. And aren’t they only suppose to be only 2 to 4 racers?

Albert Einstein today as a child would probably be on drugs diagnosed with ADHD or Autism!
He didn’t talk until 4.
His grandmother called him ‘thick’ or not very smart.
Repeated words and sentences over and over until he was 7.
Maybe had a form of autism.
Didn’t learn to read until 9 and didn’t like school.
He was disorganized, forgot things, his lectures were hard to follow – the classical ‘absent-minded’ professor.
He attended a Catholic elementary school in Munich until he was 12.
Dropped out of high school at 16.
Failed the entrance exam the first time he applied for college!
What a loser by today’s standards!
But still the greatest creative scientific mind in history!
