Today I learned how to tell if an egg is still good or spoiled : by simply placing an egg in a bowl and observe if it sinks or floats :rolleyes:  the good one SINKS !

 

And the science in them was : "Since egg shells are porous, overtime the liquid in the egg evaporates and is replaced by outside air. This results in more buoyant eggs."

Today I learned that pumpkinplants have very pretty flowers. And I felt very stupid for not knowing that pumpkins have flowers.

I learned something new on NatGeo about the Prohibition in the States. The part I love the most was the story of Al Capone on how he was gaining millions of cash through illegal business on alcohol during those days. The law regarding the alcohol was so blunt that even the cops, juries in the court and also the President himself was smuggling, disregard the law itself and even drink the Moonshine that locals made to avoid taxes.

 

Funny thing was that Al Capone's brother, Vincanzo, back in the days was in a fight when he was about 14 or 15 while Al was 7 years old. Vincanzo threw the boy at a window and Al came by and somewhat 'announced' the boy was dead. Vin was so scared to go home facing their parents ran off and joined the circus. He changed his name to a more English like rather than the Italian Vincanzo ( I belive it was Richard ), went to Nebraska and even got married. He then worked as a Bounty Hunter thus a total opposite of his brother Al and every time he sees his brother's face on the papers he would normally reflect their lives together back in the days, he even kept his identity a secret from his wife.

 

After quiet a while, I'm guessing more than 50 years, he revealed himself and met the Capone family. He met that brother of his Al and Al suddenly said to Vin that the boy didn't actually died and Al got a punch right off his nose BOOM ! :D Hell of a story !
