    Do you know?

    Hi guys,
    I came across following interesting facts and thought of sharing it with you all . If you know any just feel free to add it here:

    Broccoli was first introduced into France during the royal marriage of Catherine de Medici to Henry II of France.

    Tomatoes were once referred to as "love apples." This is because their was a superstition that people would fall in love by eating them.

    According to legend, tea originated in China when tea leaves accidentally blew into a pot of boiling water.

    A common custom in Spain is to eat one grape for each of the last 12 seconds of every year for good luck.

    By federal law, for a noodle to actually be a noodle it must have 5.5 percent egg solids in it, otherwise it cannot be called a noodle.

    So if tea was not originated prior to this, what were "Tea" Leaves used for? Just trying to imagine what they had all these piles of leaves around pots of boiling water for I guess it was bound to happen... another thought, What did they drink in China before this tea leave incident?

    >By federal law, for a noodle to actually be a noodle it must have 5.5 percent egg solids in it, otherwise it cannot be called a noodle.
    Has anyone tried LOW CARB pasta??? YUK! This stuff can't possibly have any actual food content in it. I guess they get around the Noodle Law by calling it "Pasta".

    No, no, NO!!!

    The FSM is not bound by terrestrial rules, and could "fudge" them with a simple twitch of an appendage even if the rules applied. While I personally believe that there is at least 5.5%, that is not binding on the FSM in any way, shape, or form!

    Ok - but if his noodley appendages were other than 5.5% egg solid then the federal law would be exposed as fallacious. His appendages are indisputably noodley ergo any definition indicating otherwise cannot have any credence.

    FSMs appendages are the final word on noodlyness - not the ravings of some crackpot secular politician.

    So, does that mean that by federal law, for a pootle to actually be a pootle it must have 5.5 percent flump in it, otherwise it cannot be called a pootle.

    just curious...

    The Arkansas legislature passed a law that states that the Arkansas River can rise no higher than to the Main Street bridge in Little Rock.

    Perhaps someone should inform the river about that law and just who gets arrested if it does go over the bridge. The mayor? The rain? The hurricane? Probably me...sigh!
