I lived in Wellington for five years without ever knowing it was named after Napoleon's nemesis. It took a guy in Seattle, decades later, to let me know.

I grew up in Wellington till I was 16, and was never taught at school about Napoleon. I only know this because I visited UK and read history books.

Nobody knows where any of the foods popular across the Ottoman Empire came from originally. Though that doesn't stop every formerly constituent country from claiming all of them- kebab, doner/gyro/shawarma, falafel, moussaka, and pita, apparently, as well. Hadn't heard that one before.

The fact that the word "pita" definitely comes from at least Byzantine Greek, and perhaps even ancient Greek, long before there were any Turks in Anatolia, doesn't do much for your particular argument in this case, though. I am, however, very impressed by your use of CAPSLOCK. (interesting aside for those who claim "pizza" was invented in Italy: pizza is just a Neapolitan degeneration of the word pita- a word describing a similar food already consumed in Greece for a long time before Naples existed; Naples having been originally settled by Greeks; but real modern pizza was invented by Italian immigrants in New York City)

Should I admit to having laughed out loud at "I am, however, very impressed by your use of CAPSLOCK"?

Did Facebook really not pass MySpace until 2008? It felt like MySpace was dying by about mid-2006.
