When Sylvester Stallone moved to Hollywood to make it big there, he really found himself struggling with money with his wife (just before Rocky). They had an old Pitbull dog and because they were struggling so much, they decided to sell the dog to a family in a very hot summer because they couldn't accommodate his elderly needs in the heat.
When around half a year later Sly was starting to shoot Rocky, he approached the family and asked if they'd be willing to let the dog star in the movie because he'd written parts for him in the script. After short hesitation the family said yes and the dog got to star in 2 Rocky movies.
Out of that story there developed the legend that Sly sold the dog to a stranger and once he made money from Rocky he bought the dog back for 15.000$. Which of course isn't true.

You can see the railings on Google Street view
and during WW2 loads of british people donated their railings to be melted down and used for the war effort. The thing is the bulk of the metal was just scrapped and never used as it wasn't suitable. the government asked for the railings to make people think they were personally helping Britain win the war, like a morale booster.
Bees were originally wasps who decided to go vegetarian.
Yogurt was probably discovered at the same time in many places about 4000 years ago after milk carried in waterskins made of animal hide turned sour. The yogurt culture (boom boom) we enjoy in the west today traces its origins to Bulgarian yogurts from the 1920s and 1930s.
The link below goes into more detail about its development.

Since August 2017, when Mauritania added red to its flag, Jamaica is the only country without red, white or blue in their flag.
I didn't know Mauritania had amended its flag
I have fairly good country-flag recognition (thanks to having far too much time on my hands in the past). The extra stripes might have stumped me.
