the only thing when it gets messy is when it is more about opinions than facts. When it is about thngs that can be proven or measured, (just like in science) things will be altered untill the best most correct version keeps standing. But with unclear matters it can become pingpong (but wether that is better or worse than one of the opinions being forced upon you as the one and only truth like when it comes from a single source..
I can write a book claiming the earth is flat, ow wait, a cube perhaps, and since noone can argue with me, it will be the truth..
My parents also fell for the hat scam. Because of all the kick backs that drivers get from tourist places, the wages are kept artificially low basing them on the fact that drivers make it up with kick backs. Vicious circle.
Interestingly, though, one of the things they were told that was not true was that the Colosseum was never actually flooded for mock naval battles - that this was just a myth - when in fact it's well documented that this really did take place. Interesting, because, as TWM pointed out above usually what tour guides are doing is either repeating badly sourced information, or making stuff up, to make a place seem more interesting. This guide seems to have wanted to make the Colosseum less interesting. Curious.
Neumanntall actually sounds better Newmanvalley, well actualy it is more like pre-man, the new (hu)man came after.
I frequently cringe at the way people word criticisms and corrections on here, often with no apparent thought for others' feelings, especially those who have gone to the effort of making quizzes. However, I do remind myself that not all who post are using their first language. It is quite easy to be offensive in English without meaning to be. And wonderfully easy to be very rude whilst pretending to be polite.
Anyway, I hope I'm not sounding patronising by showing appreciation for a courteous gesture.
