I'll guess fact.

Escobar was not only filthy rich, but IIRC he was rather extravagant and eccentric.  I wouldn't put it past him...

In hindsight for last week. (Doesn't count of course)
1) Believable
2) I knew This
3) I saw a show about this in the history channel of all places.
4) New Zealand does everything with sheep.  ::)
5) I new that Berlin removed most if not all of the wall. It was in the Anime Monster

The temptation of googling is too big. I'd say crap. Are there hippos in Colombia?

Oh, and we should have a "no editing" rule, like there is in mafia ;D

Fact.

That is probably a fact since that guy had a lot of hippos and there was a discovery channel show on it.

DRmeg is right!  No Googling!  No editing your answers, either. 

Also, I keep reading today's page on the calendar as "The former estate of drug lord Pablo Escobar is now overrun with hippies."   :laugh:

Heh.  Skulker, Citizen Skeptic, SQ, David E., and pandamonium are tied at four correct answers, while PANTS!, Johnny Slick, and Zytheran have three correct.  I suck, with one correct answer!
VALIDATION! SWEET VALIDATION!

I only edited because I did not outright state the word Fact.  For which Alqubuerque (All the time) would surely yell at me.
