I had to find some interesting facts about the USA today and this is what I got ( just thought it was cool and wanted to share it with all of you!):goodvibes

• The Mississippi-Missouri is the longest river in the USA.
• Lake Michigan is the US’s largest lake.
• 1,525,000,000 miles of telephone wires are strung across the USA.
• 166,875,000,000 pieces of mail is delivered each year in the USA.
• Two thirds of the worlds eggplant is grown in New Jersey.
• Blueberry Jelly Bellies were made for Ronald Reagan.
• The USA once issued a 5-cent bill.
• 123,000,000 cars are being driven down USA’s highways.
• 32% of USA land is owned by the government.
• The first president to be born in a hospital was Jimmy Carter.
• George Washington was so scared of being buried alive that after he died he wanted to be left out for three days to make sure he was really dead.
• Andrew Jackson was the only president that believed the world was flat.
• Although Ohio is listed as the 17th state it is technically number 47 because until August 7th, 1953, Congress forgot to vote on a resolution to admit Ohio into the Union.
• The USA has never lost a war that mules were used in.
• One of George Washington’s favorite foods was ice cream.
