So, it was not Donald Trump who invented "fake news" :)

The title of video is "Wear Two Hat's". Some little mistake, eh?
Topic: Candelaria (Peru)
Posted: Saturday, February 2, 2019 1:15:58 AM
The caption speaks about Peru, but the very article refers to Bolivia. Surely, there are two different Candelarias : one in Peru, one in Bolivia, but The Free Dictionary is the only one. So where should I go for a Candelaria holiday: Peru or Bolivia?
Topic: Apollo-Soyuz Test Project: First Docking of Russian and US Spacecrafts (1975)

Among memorabilia of this project were cigarettes "Soyuz-Apollo", jointly produced by Java (Russia) and Philip Morris (USA, maybe). As collection item they are still available at 5-10$. Now such memorabilia would be unthinkable... :)
Topic: US Supreme Court Classifies Tomatoes as Vegetables, Not Fruit (1893)

In EU carrots are classified as fruits. Because in Portugal they make carrot jam. Not kidding.
Topic: long memory

Grandma' memory of Russia is incorrect on the map. If Soviet, the map of Russia should include Baltic, Transcaucasian and Central Asian states (not to mention Ukraine with Crimea (sic) and Byelorussia) independent since nineteen nineties. If antebellum (first) Russian Empire is remembered, then part of Poland (with Warsaw) and Finland should be added.

In Lithuanian language: verpstė. Collections of these ethnographic utensils are popular in folk art museums in Lituania.

Mark Twain, "Adventures of Tom Sawyer": Tom draws a lie in the sand warning a newcomer boy not to cross it. Of course, the fight starts.
Topic: 2008 Summer Olympics Begin in Beijing, China (2008)

This (and similar sports related topics) article should be updated now (e.g., medal count table) in the light of official decisions on doping scandals.

You can add translation of this word into Lithuanian language: KRETANTIS (M), KRETANTI (F).
