Cleopatra used the fresh aloe gel from the aloe plant as a love potion, dropping it into the drinks of men she wished to seduce.

CRAP
Aloe was used by the queen of Egypt, not for love, but as a skin lotion.  Cleopatra applied the fresh aloe gel from the aloe plant to her skin every day to preserve her legendary beauty.  The powerful, rich, and gorgeous Cleo didn't need a love potion!

The earliest clear predecessors to the Inca are about 8 years ago. 

Am I misunderstanding this? the Incas have only been around since 2006? I'm pretty sure there was peanut butter before that, I ate it in the 70's.

I still demand a recount.  The CWM is clearly wrong about peanut butter.   :'(


Never heard of him either but then I could probably only name a dozen or so and I'd likely be wrong about most of them.

Fact.

Yeah I have no idea about this one. No idea there were that many. Wouldn't there just be 50? One from each state?

Completely confused as to what Georgia has to do with the American Independence signing?

Anyway I reckon George Washington was a signer but that's all I know.

Fact.

There were only 13 states when America declared their independence. I've never heard of this Button guy, but I think I know who the oldest signer was, and it ain't him.
