When you eat seeds they attempt to take root inside'ja, so cool! I could have some cabbages or blackberry bushes growing inside me or something! This has a good basis I think for a horror gore

That's what the film the 'Girl with all the Gifts' is based on, well not so much the film which doesn't go into as much detail, but the book. The author was trying to find a scientific basis for zombies.
I read it while I was on holiday in Greece, every time I have a mojito now it reminds me of parasitic fungus

If you tick all the messages on the 1st page of your inbox then realise you wanted page 2 and click on '2'. Then tick all those and click delete, it remembers that you previously had all of page 1 ticked and deletes both pages. I used page one for my long term keepers

I blame Ajax. Or possibly poor user interface design, it should never delete something you cannot see visually when you click delete..... big hairy possibly infected ballsacks

That leftover pasta can be rinsed in cold water and the frozen, you can then reheat in the microwave.

That ricotta and cottage cheese should be stored upside down in the fridge, it keeps it fresher for longer as it creates a vacuum and stops bacteria growing.

^ I have a separate ricotta fridge whcih I mounted upside down, saves wear and tear from cheese rotation on my delicate ladylike wrists. And what a perfect post to be told my battery is dead... Night all.

And.... going by that, Noah seems to have invented the bulbous bow, even though Wiki suggests they didn't make an appearance until the last decade of the 19th century.

There are 16 types of contraception.
Yeah but they all ( except condoms) come with side effects.....weight gain. Irregular periods, acne...in this day and age you'd think they'd make one with no side effects.

^ I don't get any of those side effects either, but I guess everyone's body is different.

There is a non hormonal IUD that you can get, but I've known a few people who found that the side effect of that one was becoming pregnant

I never used to get side effects either. It was lovely. If only I could remember to take them.

^^ Damn. Sheep go through a lot! Actually I'm outraged by that!

That malaria mosquitoes are attracted to a specific type of cheese because it smells very similar to human feet, so traps are set with the cheese to try and reduce the number of mosquitoes.
