FOOD FACTS More Useless Information

Ok.. so now you're beginning to see that I'm the queen (or at least the princess) of totally useless information... but I find it so interesting!!
It seems that everyone I talk to (ok.. I don't really talk to that many people) but I read about how many people are obsessed with dieting, with food, etc... So, here are some interesting FOOD FACTS I thought I'd share...

  • During an average person's life, they will consume about 60,000 pounds of food.
  • Broccoli is a vegetable with a nervous system. Primitive though it may be, it CAN feel pain. (ok.. that's just creepy!)
  • Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously.
  • The average American will eat about 11.9 pounds of cereal per year.
  • Coca-cola was originally green.
  • They have square watermelons in Japan. They stack better.
  • Every time you lick a stamp, you're consuming 1/10 of a calorie.

I won't look at broccoli the same way ever again. Poor broccoli.

I've actually heard about square watermelons. They're pretty expensive, I believe.

I'd totally drink green coca-cola.
