a random fact

Here's something you may have never guessed but Glenn Beck got something wrong when talking about American history. Let that shock marinate for a while. Is the shock setting in? Good. Now lets look at this clip of Glenn Beck discussing the size of bills being debated in Congress and the size of the US constitution.

Unfortunately for Glenn he is in fact wrong. The constitution was 6 pages long and that was on those gigantic pieces of parchment paper which were popular at the time. On a standard piece of paper today the constitution would take up about 15 pages.
