Yay, two times the Ripley's fun. I wanted to know who the most indebted country was only to discover it was...well, see below. But I did end up learning more about King Louis XVII although according to Wikipedia, King Louis may have been king but he did not actually "reign".
I often think the Ripley's people just search Wikipedia for their information or that when a reader submits something, they copy it from Wikipedia. Maybe I'm just giving Wikipedia too much credit because I do a blog about it.
If you want someone to remember you, why would you get them something edible? Why not a lamp or something homey like a cross-stitch picture?
