    “Hot water is heavier than cold.” True for a given weight but not within a given volume.

    The Memorial features engravings of the names of all the states that existed at the time of its construction (there are only 48 because Alaska and Hawaii had not yet been annexed). However, only 26 of the states are visible on the façade of the building, so therefore these are the only state names that appear on the back of the bill!
