In America you will see an average of 500 advertisements a day.

The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.

Andorra, a tiny country on the border between France and Spain, has the longest average lifespan: 83.49 years.

--Raw kiwifruit is rich in the protein-dissolving enzyme actinidin, which is commercially useful as a meat tenderizer but can be an allergen for some individuals. This enzyme makes raw kiwifruit unsuitable for use in desserts containing milk or any other dairy products which are not going to be served within hours, because it soon begins to dissolve milk proteins. This also applies to gelatin based desserts, as well, as the actinidin will dissolve the collagen proteins in gelatin very quickly, either liquifying the dessert, or preventing it from solidifying.

--Multiple trials indicate that taking vinegar with food increases satiety (the feeling of fullness) and so reduces the amount of food consumed. Even a single application of vinegar can lead to reduced food intake for a whole day. Apple cider vinegar is a much more useful astringent than ice and will reduce inflammation, bruising and swelling in approximately a third of the time that ice will take. Application is directly onto the skin with a flannel, and left on for an hour or so.

--During the reign of the Roman emperor Nero, sausages were associated with the Lupercalia festival. The early Catholic Church outlawed the Lupercalia Festival and made eating sausage a sin. For this reason, the Roman emperor Constantine banned the eating of sausages.

The name for Oz in the Wizard of Oz was thought up when the creator Frank Baum looked at his filing cabinet and saw A-N and O-Z.

Judy Scheindlin (”Judge Judy”) has a $25,000,000 salary, while Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has a $190,100 salary.

A dime has 118 ridges around the edge. A quarter has 119

--In Fascist Italy under the regime of Benito Mussolini, political dissidents were force-fed large quantities of castor oil by Fascist paramilitary groups. Victims of this treatment would experience severe diarrhea and dehydration, often resulting in death. Sometimes when the blackshirts wished to make sure that the victim would die rather than simply be badly disabled, they would mix gasoline with the castor oil. It is said that Mussolini's power was backed by "the bludgeon and castor oil."

--Cochineal and Carmine are deep crimson food dyes that are extracted from the female cochineal insects. It is used in foods such as alcoholic drinks, bakery products and toppings, cookies, desserts, icings, pie fillings, jams, preserves, gelatin desserts, juice beverages, varieties of cheddar cheese and other dairy products, sauces and sweets. Cochineal is also used to color Mcdonalds Strawberry Shakes. The average human consumes one to two drops of carminic acid each year with food. The insects are killed by immersion in hot water (after which they are dried) or by exposure to sunlight, steam, or the heat of an oven. Each method produces a different colour which results in the varied appearance of commercial cochineal. The insects are then dried and ground into a powder.

In a survey of 200000 ostriches over 80 years, not one tried to bury its head in the sand.

Broccoli and cauliflower are the only vegetables that are flowers.

In Iceland, a Big Mac costs $5.50.

When the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers plays football at home the stadium becomes Nebraska’s third largest city.

There are about 450 types of cheese in the world. 240 come from France

In the U.S, Frisbees outsell footballs, baseballs and basketballs combined

On average people fear spiders more than they do death

If you yelled for 8 years 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

“Canada” is an Indian word meaning “Big Village”.

Michael Jordan makes more money from Nike annually than every Nike factory worker in Malaysia combined

Right handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left handed people do

Women blink nearly twice as much as men

Elwood Edwards did the voice for the AOL sound files (i.e. “You’ve got Mail!”). He is heard about 27 million times a day. The recordings were done before Quantum changed its name to AOL and the program was known as “Q-Link.”
