So somewhat akin to learning that Pluto isn't a planet anymore, today I learned that the tallest mountain in the USA is not Mt. McKinley as I have known all my life, but was instead renamed by Obama in August 2015 to "Denali." Decided to post this, just in case it's news to anyone else out there.

I had forgotten about that.

It's still Mt. McKinley to most of us.

Had a friendly argument in a bar and bet $100 it was McKinley. Other person said “no way, that’s not what it is.”

We looked it up and we decided on a push.
