    I love picture association and word association, so why not do what the autistic mind does best and associate information.

    You list a fact that the last fact reminded you of.

    I'll start: iron is what makes amethyst purple.

    Purple was so expensive to make that only royals could afford it, which is why it's a symbol of royalty.

    Crushed shells are now mostly used for drive ways, aquarium substrate. Purple dye and paint can now be made synthetically and are essentially the same price as other colors.

    Athens is a city in Greece and I still remember that
    for the World History exam in 10th grade I memorized
    locations on the map as: Melos & Delos, and Doris &
    Rhodes; Meander, Ionia, Lydia & Troy. Hellespont,
    Propontis and Thrace.

    Hell, too. [Charlotte, also, but that doesn't fit the 'Greek/Michigan' theme.]

    Uncle Remus was the main character in a Disney movie
    that seems to be 'incorrect' now. Uncle Remus stories
    were very hard for me to read when I was 10 because
    I didn't understand the phonetic spelling of the accent/
    dialect.

    Pocahontas was the main character in a Disney movie that is recognized to be historically inaccurate now, including that Pocahontas was actually 12 years old when she met John Smith.

    When we were 12, all the girls I knew
    were fascinated & appalled by the story
    of the Peruvian girl who gave birth at
    the age of 5.
