Yes. I ruined one of my favorite shirts making Red Velvet Cake. :(

Did you know if you mix all the colors in a package of mulit-color food coloring, you'll actually get something that looks more like a dark green?

Glad all my favorite shirts are horror movie related so a little red food coloring wouldn't ruin them..I could just say it was a blood stain.


Wow, you'd think that if you mixed all the food colors together you would get black.

Did you know that one time I tried to flush a rat down the toilet and it survived, and then I went and wrote a book about it?

Did you know that the round shape of the hole in an artery minimises the contact between the blood and the walls of the artery, minimising friction on the blood and as such the energy needed to pump it round the body?

And this principal of fluid dynamics applies to any fluid or gas. This is why we build round pipes & hoses instead of, say square ones.

Two parts of mayonnaise plus one part of ketchup makes a delicious thousand island dressing.

Uh-huh. You can also clean copper bottomed pans with a lemon half that's been dipped in salt.

Did you know your mouth is the most unsanitary part of your whole body. More than 100 million microcreatures live there at any one time.

Well... the cleanest spot to eat on at least :P

Did you know that there are post timers on here that last to a min? That means after I post this, I have to wait a min before posting another post. It really sucks if you have many tabs open.
