Hooks change

NOTE: When possible, it is good to have a balance of subjects covered by the hooks. Thanks.

From a collection of Wikipedia's articles:

One of the columns of the Mezquita de Córdoba mosque

  • ... that the Mezquita de Córdoba mosque (pictured) in Spain is supported by over 850 columns?
  • ... that at age 88, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter helped build homes that were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012?
  • ... the first country to make metal coins was called Lydia?
  • ... that the Amazon Rainforest has so much biodiversity that it makes 20% of the world's oxygen, earning it the title "The Lungs of the Earth"?
  • ... that female indentured servants who were raped by their masters and became pregnant would have their contract increased by two years?
