You've Come A Long Way Baby

Happy 232nd birthday America. Almost as old as Larry King! From 13 colonies to 50 states you've come a long way baby. And still, there's so much about you that we don't know. America, did you know...

-Thomas Paine originally proposed the name "United States of America."

-The USA's top three ancestral roots come from Germany (15.6%), Africa (12.9%), Ireland (10.8%).

-The White House if officially called the Executive Mansion

-One in an every 4 Americans has appeared on Television.

-52 Percent of Americans drink coffee

-27 Percent of Americans don't believe we landed on the moon

- America has never lost a war in which a mule was used

-More people are killed by donkeys annually than in plane crashes (OK. This is not USA specific but still an awesome fact),
