    Sounds to me like it’s a scam to let the queen keep all the swans because how can you claim a swan unless it’s unclaimed and unclaimed swans are automatically the queen’s. Transitive treason.

    Native American gardens of corn beans and squash are always lauded because the beans use the corn stalks to grow up and beans put nitrogen back into the soil that is being leeched by the corn and squash. The squash covers the soil and keeps moisture in.

    buuuuuuut

    The real incredible feat of the three is that eaten together, corn and beans have all the amino acids of a complete protein, making an ideal vegetarian meal. The squash adds extra minerals and vitamins, plus a touch of sweetness.

    All can be dried for preservation too

    The High Five Is A Recent Innovation

    It seems like the simple gesture of one person slapping another's palm in victory must have been around forever, but in truth, it may even be younger than you are. At a pro baseball game in 1977, Dodger player Dusty Baker hit his 30th home run of the season. As he rounded home and passed his teammate Glenn Burke in the on-deck circle, Burke raised his hand in excited greeting. On instinct, Baker reached up and slapped it because, he said, "it seemed like the thing to do." Thus the high-five was born.

    On that same note, Cecil Rhodes (Rhodes Scholar) is one of the greatest pieces of shit of all time. Responsible for millions of deaths in Africa. It’s a shame (and embarrassing) that a prestigious award still bears his name.

    I would pay way too much money to watch a Jonathon vs the Mombasa Kenya imposter PPV. I’m assuming they’d both spend 30 mins walking to a bowl of greens and another 30 mins to munch on them. Well worth the money imo.

    11 of 32 NFL teams - 34% - use cities/states as their geographical signifier that start with one of the first four letters of the alphabet, which is 15% of the letters. Doesn't count New England, which should be Boston, but it does count Carolina, which works as Carolina or Charlotte, and Arizona.
