Five things you didn’t know about the Star Spangled Banner

“Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!” said the fictional President Thomas Whitmore in the movie…I think you know the movie from the quote. It’s the one where Will Smith plays a U.S. Air Force pilot who somehow knows how to fly an alien spacecraft on the basis of one aerial dogfight against one spaceship. This one plot point is so far-fetched that it really bothers me...
