although i do gotta wonder why they put "real facts" in quotation marks.....

that's right - i keep forgetting you are stuck out there on the outer edge of the world. 'snapple' was the progenitor (or at least populizer) of bottled iced tea. then they started adding fruit flavors to the tea (like peach and raspberry), and moved onto fruit juices only (in manifold combinations). no cows or other dairy-like creatures involved.

Are you saying that an all natural fruit-flavored beverage is somehow responsible for a certain mammalian mutation that devloped over the past 500 million years?

Damn... that's the one cap I have here right now... I had another one about how many steps a person takes during a day. I couldn't help but wonder who was bored enough or didn't have a life to count all those steps.

I'm just going to re-iterate that I won't be having any input in this thread whatsoever; what without not having snapples and all...

So, just go ahead and play with yourselves...

yet another important elephant fact (#46): elephants are the only mammals that can't jump.

of course, if true, this means that rhinoceri can.....
