Thanks, Daft. I also put the apostrophe in cuckoo's. But I have been accused of worse.

IMDb lists the character as Agent Smith, so Mr. Smith has been deleted.

I note that in Ancient Characters Euclid is a Greekmathematician instead of a Greek Mathematician

Also: Deborah is listed as Israeli Prophet. Perhaps she could be changed to Hebrew Prophet to be consistent with the others.

Thanks.

In Paintings (the original) there is an entry for Jean Clouet, "Frances 1". Since Francis was a king and not a queen and since Roman numerals are usually used, it should be Francis I. Thanks.

In Official Languages, Portuguese is given for Guinea...with Bissau as extra info.
It should be Guinea-Bissau. French is the language of Guinea.

Not sure Laurel & Hardy should be described as a British comedy pair. Stan Laurel was English born, but Oliver Hardy was American through and through.

And in Classical Albums- 2000-Present there are two entries for Rolando Villazón. The poor guy has only one l in his second name in one entry. Do you think you can give him another?

I think "lesser known" is a bit misleading for the plays by Shakespeare in the Daily Brainoff today, I don't regard them as lesser known, just rarely performed. There was a big debate when I was at college about Titus Adronics with the opinion being if it had been written in the present day it would never have got past the censors, which probably explains why it's not performed on stage very often.

Changed to 'Rarely performed' for now. There may be a better description though.

In "Somgs about You", it has "The Nolans" as performing "You make me feel like dancing", but I'm pretty sure that was performed by "Leo Sayer".

I think somebody got mixed up with the Nolans classic "I'm in the mood for dancing" :)

Pond plants, I am going to review the whole list as there are some glaring errors, such as Agave - it's a dry habitat plant, and Sambucus Cadensus is not specifically a pond plant. I think the subject should be pulled until it is verified. Sorry, I was enjoying ploughing through it on my bored days at work.

Oh that's right, I made comment after it went in that there were a lot of non-pond plants in it but never got back to do anything. Will take another look after the Jive.

I am up to Axonopus furcatus and so far only 10 plants above that could be described as "pond plants". Cant we just have another "plants and their latin names" instead as it is a nice hard one :).

Yes, I was lax when I volunteered the name. Strictly speaking I was going through listing of aquatic plants. But I must admit several are included that puzzled me as aquatic - though I did find them on more than one list. I like the rename idea.
