Unless you were adopted, then you might.

Now that's just wrong. Re the Pilgrims' doing that, I mean.

Back then, lobsters were poor folks food. Children took lobster to school for lunch and were ridiculed for it. It's a relatively recent development for lobster to be high falutin'.

Son of a gun. I didn't know that. Thanks to Bolas' thread and Andy's and everyone's posts, I'm getting smarter by the minute. Wheeee. Or is that "weeee" (said like the little pig out the car window in the Geico commercials) all the way home. I love that commercial. Just wish I could see the guy while he does the piggy-voice.

On average, 162 US pennies weigh 1 lb (variation depends on the year the penny was minted).

Lobsters were fed to prisoners in the state of Maine before lobster gained the status of being high falutin'.

Loons can't walk on land- their legs are too far back on they're body, which is why you never see them out of the water.

In areas like Duluth, MN, where the wind comes steadily off the lake, the chimneys all lean toward the lake from the particles in the air wearing down the grout on that side.

Table salt is the only commodity that hasn’t risen dramatically in price in the last 150 years.

Grapes explode when you put them in the microwave.

Worcestershire sauce is basically anchovy ketchup.
