Tuesday, March 23: Clearly, many of you don't take kindly to someone stumbling into your habitat! How do you recharge after a long week (or after that Mr. Irwin encounter)?

I try to just relax and zone out. It’s a little more difficult with a baby, but I make it work.

According to this Snapple lid, there are more chickens in the world than there are people.

 

In that case, Colonel Sanders was doing the world a favor when he created his recipe, and waging a war in the name of humanity!

 

Fun (or not) fact: the Colonel's original recipe for his chicken is not patented, as it would need to be published in detail and has an expiration date. It is instead a trade secret, which remains the intellectual property of the holder.

Wednesday, March 24: Tell us some fun facts!

This will be a needful thing for so long as the Forums are janked up. 
 

My other fun fact is Inspired by MvMs “it happened this day” postings in the randomness thread. 
 

The Exxon Valdez had a sister ship. Her name was Exxon Monterey. Both ships were built in San Diego specifically to serve the Alaska oil pipeline. Their names were derived by a simple formula: CorporateOwner + PortOfCall. Both ships were assigned to the job of hauling oil from Alaska to the Lower 48. They would unload oil at an Exxon oil terminal at Monterey California (there’s one name), then they would run empty up to Alaska, arrive at the port of Valdez, (there’s the other name) take on a full load of oil, and then head back South for Monterey. They were meant to Endlessly repeat that loop. They would often pass each other going opposite directions at sea.

Exxon Valdez changed names at least seven times after the incident. It was ultimately beached, disassembled, and cut to pieces in 2012. 

 

I wanted that to merge. Anyways that ship in Waterworld  could only be a namesake.

Despite their appearance, and what many grocery shelf stockers believe, canary melons and spaghetti squashes are not the same kind of produce.

A chilled spaghetti squash smoothie leaves a lot to be desired.
