Missed Corrections

  • “In a previous episode, Lee referred to German as a romance language. German is considered to be a Germanic language, along with English and Dutch.” - Erik
  • “In episode 46 KnowNo Gone Wild, Marc asked a question about country capitals in Africa. He said that Johannesburg was the capital of South Africa. Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, but not the capital. I thought it was Cape Town, but apparently they don't have a legally defined capital. Each branch of government (executive, judicial, legislative) has its own capital city. Pretoria is the executive capital, Bloemfontein is the judicial capital, and Cape Town is the legislative capital. Also, he said there were 40-ish countries in Africa. I had to google because I was curious, but there are 54 countries in Africa.” - Taylor
