Birthdates :
Jackson Pollack - should be Pollock
Maria Calas - should be Callas
Bernadette Peters  February 28 1958 - should be  February 28 1948
Fats Domino has two dates - the correct one is February 26 1928. Also, as he died recently, could he be added to They Died in 2016 - 2020
Fats Domino -- Musician -- 1928 - 2017. Pianist, singer/songwriter and  pioneer of rock & roll.
Operatic Duets :
La Trovatore - should be Il Trovatore (capital i )

Australian No 1 Hits :
Black Betty performed Spiderbait - should be Spiderbait -- Black Betty

Cheeses :
Polkolbin cheese comes from Australia - There is a regional area in  the N.S.W. Hunter Valley called Pokolbin (not Po-l-kobin) where there is a dairy and a cheese factory but  no record of a 'Pokolbin' or Polkolbin' cheese. There is definately no variety of that name.

Strange Place Names :
There is no 'Chinaman's Knob' in W.A. but there is a hill in Victoria & a mountain in N.S.W which both have that name.
I know there is already a lot in this category but might there be room for just a few more please?
   Boodarockin -- Western Australia, Australia
   Doodlakine -- Western Australia, Australia
   Ghooli -- Western Australia, Australia
   Humpty Doo -- Northern Territory, Australia
   Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill -- South Australia, Australia -- The longest official place name in Australia. "Where the devil   urinates" in the Pitjantjatjara language.
   Monkey Mia -- Western Australia, Australia
   Mount Buggery -- Victoria, Australia
   Nowhere Else -- Tasmania, Australia
   Useless Loop -- Western Australia, Australia
Sorry about the "oo" overload. It's quite common in place names of Aboriginal origin. There's loads more strange & amusing ones - far too many to include so I just picked a few I've been to.
I've put all the additions in alphabetical order as a matter of course but was just wondering if the site uses software that does this automatically.

This came up in today's Entertainment brainoff.  Animated Villains : Foxey Loxley - should be Foxy Loxy (in both 1943 & 2005 films).

Is there a problem with these?

If so, don't do the additions, just the corrections.
