I think the Wikipedia article I read on the subject (when I was researching one of my own food quizzes) stated that noodles/pasta were invented independently in many different places, including Greece and ancient Phoenicia which means they were probably around there before anyone was eating them in China. The story that Marco Polo brought them back to Venice from China is not true.

Because that's the name of the currency.. you also get Argentine peso, Chilean peso, along with half of South America that has their own version of the Peso but they are not the same currency.

I am not trying to stir up a debate about the benefits of Communism or the failures of it...but is it fair to label Brezhnev as a dictator? Stalin he was not. Just an observation - again, not trying to begin a lengthy debate.
