4/25/07 The Average Life

Over the average life, a person "will eat over 10,000 bars of chocolate, shed 121 pints of tears and have sex more than 4,200 times". According to this new documentary...

"The show takes viewers on a journey from babyhood, when we get through 3,796 nappies and produce 254 litres of urine, through to old age and death, by which time we will have eaten 10,866 carrots, taken 7,163 baths and passed wind an average of 15 times a day."


In a follow up to the pluot confusion, I found out that Zaiger's Genetics has patented other hybrid fruits:

Aprium — a patented hybrid of apricot and plum
Nectaplum — a hybrid of nectarine and plum
Nectarcot — a hybrid of nectarine and apricot
Peacotum — a hybrid of peach, apricot and plum
Pluot — a patented hybrid of plum and apricot


Also, in a follow up to the Rex 84 postcard... well, it's real.
