Also Koopa Troopas are koopas, not turtles. They may look like turtles, but I have yet to see any official documents that identify themselves as such. Also, the "chickens" in Zelda games are called "cuccos".

I couldn't think of the name Antoni Gaudi, so I just tried the most famous architect I could think of....Art Vandelay. :)

I know most (but not all) north American rivers have the name first (e.g. Colorado River, St John River) whereas most (but not all) European rivers have it the other way round (e.g. River Seine, River Thames, River Danube). But do Americans really call it the Nile River? It sounds very odd to me, but perhaps that's just because of my location - I've only ever heard River Nile (or just the Nile).

Don't you usually just say The Nile.

The Colorado.

The Thames, The Danube, The Rhine etc. ... in UK we don't tend to add the river front or back

Omega 3 is not a fatty acid but a class of fatty acids.
