* General Tso's Chicken, a popular "Hunanese" dish at American Chinese restaurants, was created by a Taiwanese chef (admittedly, of Hunanese extraction) at a New York restaurant (at least, that's one version of the story, but no one disputes that it was invented in United States and not in China). As such, it has been a virtual unknown in mainland China, especially in Hunan, where its namesake, General Tso Tsung-Tang, came from. When the Hunanese chefs first tasted it after US-PRC relations were restored, they thought it was all wrong and incompatible with Hunanese cuisine. However, after a few decades of official contact with Americans, [[http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7639868 the Hunanese are starting to adopt the dish as their own "traditional dish."]]

Corrected Historical Inaccuracies regarding the Declaration of the Rights of Man, which was written after the Constitution and not be Paine, at least as far as I can tell.
* Reader's Digest once ran an article on how American cop shows caused some French people to demand to see a warrant before having their home searched, which wasn't required in France. This was in the 1980s.[[note]]Unless they start an investigation in flagrante delicto ("enquête de flagrance"), the police will need a document ("commission rogatoire") delegating the investigation powers of an investigating judge ("juge d'instruction") to the police. It's not like they can just barge in on a whim.[[/note]] They would also quote "rights" from the American constitution, even though they have their own "Bill of Rights" called "Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme" ("Declaration of the Rights of Man").[[note]]Interestingly the original "Droites de l'Homme/Rights of Man" was written back during the (French) Revolution by ThomasPaine, and inspired the American constitution.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:
** Although "My Lord" does only apply to supreme/superior court (where appeals processes, jury trials, and the most severe crimes are tried). A provincial court (where at least 95% of crimes are tried) still retains "Your Honour". But most ''Canadians'' don't even know this distinction... thanks again to this trope and readily available access to American media.
