Say a fun fact that isn't true!

I'll start: New York has the longest official state name, "The State of the Republic and Bureau that Governs the People of the Commonwealth That Borders Massachusetts".

Did you know Game On is by far the hardest and most skill requiring event out there? It's extremely hard, time consuming, and mentally tasking to drag blocks over which you have to do repeatidely. You have to have extreme intelligence in order to figure out the exact spots to painfully drag the blocks over to. In fact, any game on person could easily beat you in all 23 events similationoisly. And when it comes to division B, suddenly div C will lose all it's intelligence and scioly will become middle school only. RIP div C

Did you know that Game On and Fast Facts tie for the best Science Olympiad events, and have existed since 1984 (if you get this <3)?
