Mental Monday's


Welcome to my weekly blog installment called Mental Monday's. A day for me to bitch about something without putting it into my regular posts. You are warned. These posts I don't hold back, and sometimes involves a lot of swearing.

This week I think I am going to change it up a bit. For once in my life I really don't have anything to bitch about (shocking I know!) Today I am going to entertain you with a bunch of Facts. Some are useless, silly & stupid, but there might even be one or two that are useful.
I tried to keep them in the theme of food, weight loss and eating. Enjoy!!!!

Feel free to add any of your own in the comments section......


  • Smelling banana's and/or green apples can help you lose weight
  • Gum on postage stamps have from 2 to 8 calories
  • They have square watermelons in Japan. They stack easier.
  • Coca-Cola was originally green
  • Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying (I need to try this)
  • Worcestershire sauce is made from dissolved fish...bones and all.
  • Pineapple is a natural painkiller.
  • An onion, apple and potato all have the same taste. The differences in flavour are caused by their smell.
  • It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
  • To burn off one plain M&M candy, you need to walk the full length of a football field.
  •  The average chocolate bar has 8 insects' legs in it. (ewwwwww)
  • Strawberries have more vitamin c than oranges.
  • Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously. (hmmm, this is interesting....lol)
  • Is bottled water worth it? 'Evian' spelled backwards is 'naive'.
  • Cranberries are sorted for ripeness by bouncing them; a fully ripened cranberry can be dribbled like a basketball.
  • Bananas contain a natural chemical which can make a person happy. This same chemical is also found in Prozac.
  • Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning. 
  • Sex burns about 360 calories per hour.
  • Ears of corn always have an even number of rows of kernels.
  • If you shake a can of mixed nuts, the larger ones will rise to the top.
  • Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite.
  • The powder on chewing gum is finely-ground marble.

Now those are the facts.....hope you enjoyed, have a great week bloggers!!!!

  2. Excellent. So, at the rate my husband and I have been going lately...I can count on about 36 calories burned once a week. LOL

    "Bananas contain a natural chemical which can make a person happy. This same chemical is also found in Prozac." I would counter this fact with one of my own...4 children aged 5 and under will have a counter-productive effect on this. Proven today after my banana snack. ;)

  6. lol some of these i knew, some i did not. thanks for sharing!

    though when i read the larger nuts will rise to the top i laughed becuase well its not that the larger nuts rise its that the smaller nuts are simply falling through the cracks. its not like the larger nuts have powers of levitation. hahaha!

  8. "Sex burns about 360 calories per hour."

    This is exactly why women have more of a tendency to be overweight than men do. If only men COULD have sex for 1 hour...instead of 15 minutes. Grrrr! LOL!

  9. I want the 360 calories an hour sex thing but I want someone to join me! : (

    The square watermelon is just insane do they grow them in square containers? Strange things that people come up with.

  10. Thank you for turning me off of M&M's and chocolate bars. :)

    Now can you come up with something about brussel sprouts so I can have a good reason to avoid them as well? :)

  11. @Rachellabelle - My Hips Don't Lie I tried to find a reason to not eat brussel sprouts for you, the only negative thing I could find was that they cause flatulence.....hahahaha
