The ocean is 12,080.7 feet (3,682.2 meters) deep on average. That's about eight Empire State Buildings, stacked one on top of the other. The deepest part of the ocean, however, is about 36,200 feet down (11,030 m). That's more like 25 Empire State Buildings.

Owning a pherret is illegal in California. Yet, more pherret food is sold in California than in any other state in America.

The person who invented the Frisbee was cremated and made into frisbees after he died. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_disc

The ocean is 12,080.7 feet (3,682.2 meters) deep on average. That's about a tenth of the hight your average jumbo jet cruises at, one after the other. The deepest part of the ocean, however, is about 36,200 feet down (11,030 m). That's more like whole actual complete cruising altitude of a jumbo jet?

A demodex mite is a spider mite that lives on your face. Apparently, they have no anuses. o_O

Actually, washing your face doesn't deter them. Nor does anything else. We all have them and we always will. I just try not to think about it too much. xD

Castoreum, a fairly common vanilla flavoring used in perfume, food and cigarettes, is derived from the castor sacs in the anus of beavers.

^lololol

Watermelons are grown square in Japan and cost 10,000 yen, or about 82$ each. They grow them this way to save on room. The farmers grow them in tempered glass cases to save refrigerator space.

Vancouver imports them in a certain store, and sells them for $199.99 and they tend to sell out. The taste is the same and they have seeds. They are just square.

Side note: I am a Produce God (12 years XP) and Yellow watermelon is thee tastiest if you see it this summer. Maybe close to double the price of red, but a stronger texture than doesn't feel gritty when you bite and is sweeter. Orange is ok. A lot like red and texture isn't as strong as yellow. Yellow Watermelon is totally bomb!!!

The number one growing pizza chain in America (according to a Yahoo "article" I read that was probably an advertisement guided as an article, if you're not a sheep) is Papa Murphy's Take n Bake Pizza.

You take it home and cook it yourself. And I'm about to try it for the first time.

Wow your way behind the times there. Papa Murphys is great if you've got the time to bake it. Their large stuffed meet pizza is enough to feed a family of like 8.

Yeah, they don't exist in Pennsylvania, where I lived most of my life. I've been in Vegas for about 20 months. I'm just trying it now. There are a ton of states that don't have this chain though.

The pizza was ok. It tasted like a good quality frozen pizza you'd buy in a supermarket. It was doughy and the crust had no flavor. Sauce tasted average at best. If not for the toppings (also average) I would give it a worse grade. 5/10, average. Very, very average.

In general adding more mono-modal lanes to highways increases congestion
