The 'fact' about pet dogs in Iceland is incorrect. ( Well spotted KELLY 'N' STEVE ....... you noticed straight away ) However, it is true that an epidemic once killed most of the Icelandic dog population.

Blorenge, a hill in Wales.

The longest word whose letters are in alphabetical order is the eight-letter Aegilops, a grass genus. (wiki)

The wiki page for 'French Kiss' says: In French, it is simply embrasser avec la langue (literally to kiss with the tongue). Nevertheless, in popular language this is referred as rouler une pelle (to roll the spade), emballer and some rude words like: "Galocher", "rouler un patin" (to roll the blade).

Do you not mean scottish kiss???

Not that i know much about statistics,but it is probably due to the fact that righties outnumber lefties by a large amount,so this would skew the figures I should imagine............................I think!!:?

rome can be refered to as roma but this is not what his statement was about, has claims that every continent has a rome, and antarctica?
calling Deutschland 'many germs' is also new to me, unless you mean one of its name derivatives. alas your contention is not clearly stated.
