  1. Its a ‘fun’ site, so sorry for the cloud.

    What’s going on here,,,do you have something against Bolivia? Or were your sources wrong? Or what? Strangely, it has an anti-Bolivia odor.
    For example–“Worlds largest producer of Coca after Peru and Colombia,” essentially means the same thing as third largest producer, but is not as sensationalistic in forming an opinion against Bolivia. In comparison with Colombia and Peru, Bolivia’s coca and cocaine production is much smaller. (Do you have a USA fun fact stating that the USA is the world’s largest consumer of cocaine, too?)

    And then: “Three times smaller then the state of Montana,” seems to be another way to diminish Bolivia by misstating her size–which instead of being a third of Montana, is actually (if my long division is correct) fifteen times the size of Montana.

    Lastly this: “86.7% of the population are completely capable of reading and writing (over 15 years old of course,” which I believe understates the present literacy levels that have been dramatically improved in the past few years under Morales (with the help of Venezuela and Cuba).

    The rest of your ‘facts’ look ok to me–but 3 out of 12 slanted or wrong, does not look good. Best of luck,,,locoto
