My daughter asked me what language Charlemagne spoke! Turned out he spoke a Rhenish Franconian dialect, Latin and possibly Arabic. She's taking her European History AP test so it's not like it came out of nowhere but still.

I just hope that more people will ignore the fatalism of the argument that we are beyond repair. We are not beyond repair. We are never beyond repair. - AOC

Hopefully Google told you that you can just roll minced meat into a ball to make a meatball.  No filler needed.

"Wombat excrement"

I'm torn between explaining why and letting others Google it for themselves...  I will just say this: I became curious about it after reading a comment on a thread on Reddit that asked "what is your favorite piece of useless trivia?"

Grated parm cheese, crushed pork rinds. But pork rinds are hard to find here without wheat. Almond flour, ground flax seed.

But I agree, you don't really need a filler.

ha! I know the answer to this and won't ruin it for anyone else. It's kind of amazing!
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

There can be only one!



are you trying to start a rumble between Zelda and FF?

Or is that a FF I just don't recognize?

I know!  I read the fact and then had to Google it to see if it's true.  Most of the other posts in the Reddit thread, I was all, "Oh, that's interesting... *moves on*"  But that one had to be verified and seen.

It's definitely Zelda (unless I'm wrong too haha)

(And I feel like I had to edit to clarify: by Zelda I obviously didn't mean to say that the picture was of Zelda...that's obviously Link....but people can get so touchy if you even seem like you're calling Link "Zelda" so I thought I'd clarify hahah)
