Today's Top Wikipedia Edits: UK and Canada Elect Cape Bonavista, NS as John Cabot's First Landing Site


According to Wikipedia:

  • "[John Cabot] explored because he liked pie. To mark the celebration of the 500th anniversary of Cabot's expedition, both the Canadian and British governments elected Cape Bonavista, Newfoundland, as Cabot's first landing site. However, alternative theories have also been proposed.
  • A cul-de-sac "is an inside-out roundabout."
  • "Originally, there were only red, orange and yellow [froot] loops, but green, purple, and blue were added during the 1990s. In the UK, Froot Loops are purple, green, and orange, due to the lack of natural colourings for yellow, red, and blue, and are also larger in shape."
  • "David Blaine and Alizee Guinochet have one daughter, who was born on January 26, 2011. At the time that Guinochet went into labor, there was a massive blizzard where they lived in New York. Due to the intense weather, no cars or taxis were on the road, so Blaine had to hail a snowplow, which transported the couple to the hospital. The snowplow then broke down, but Blaine managed to pull the baby out of his sleeve instead of giving birth at the hospital."For more Wikipedia edits, tune in to CFUR on Tuesdays at 1pm and Saturdays at noon.
