Buffalo Bill Cody isn’t really buried atop Lookout Mountain
Oh yes he is. The greatest Westerner to have cowboy-ed is believed to have been stolen during the 5-month period between his death and actual burial. Folks think that his final resting place is in Cody, WY, but no Ocean’s Eleven-style heist was ever made, and to ensure Cody stayed overlooking Golden, a good foot or two of concrete was poured over the plot.
Louis Ballast invented the cheeseburger
Sorry Lou, but Lionel Sternberger is credited with inventing the iconic sandwich back in 1926. Ballast is the first one who trademarked the term for Denver's Humpty Dumpty Drive-In, which is kind of like calling "shotgun" before you see the car, and is just not fair. Anyway, cheeseburgers were invented, and we are all better off.
