Not all are true. For instance, there have been several Februarys without a full moon since 1865. I can't believe all 50 states are listed on the $5 bill's Lincoln Memorial. Only the front of the Memorial is shown. Don't orange and range rhyme? etc.
Also, saying there are 293 ways to make change for a dollar (I'll take yer word for it) reminds me that you can have as much as $1.19 in change (two ways) and not have a change for a dollar.

I have to correct this. In some areas sharks ARE fish. Depends on egg laying. etc.
