Everything considered food or drink that enters/is made in my house because it's eaten/drank far before its expiration date?
Provided it doesn't get lost in the fridge.

Let me rephrase that:
Honey is the only natural food that does not spoil.

Leafolawl: Just because you eat everything before the expiration date doesn't mean it will not spoil if you leave it long enough.

Toasting glasses was originally made as a saftey measure.

in medieval times, if a person happened to posion your drink, you would toast and the posion would go into the attacker's drink. This way, toasting would prove you were among friends (unless of course, the attacker had some antidote ready)

As is the fact that my spelling skills are horrible to the point I have to use a spell checker to type coherently.

Also, bananas are technically a grass.

Edit: So, at first it said "Bananas ate technically a grass", another piece of useless information.

Navel oranges are very similar. They are sterile, and so "reproduce" via cuttings. Begun, the clone farm has.

Knife throwing is actually very innefficient in a fight seeing how there is a chance that the blade does not hit, there is a chance that you miss and either one of these scenarios means giving your opponent a weapon.

When you throw a knife at something, you have hold the knife differently based on how far away your target is. I use the amount of steps away the target it to determine this, but the amount of time it takes to judge the distance and how you plan to hold the knife, your target will have probably moved...

Most knives are heavier on the handle anyway. I'm sure there are knives made for throwing, but if you wanna have those, who not just carry a gun instead? :3

I don't know much about knife throwing, but I think it would be pretty amusing to see someone throw a knife and hit a person with the handle instead of the blade.
Weird, I always say the actual name of the drink instead of pop, coke, and soda.
I have never heard anyone say pop in my life. (In this context, I mean)

People didn't swim for fun or for competition until the 19th century.
In fact, back then most people didn't know how to swim.

Even so, and I'm just playing Devil's Advocate here, one still has a very low success rate if they were throwing a knife out of spontaneous reaction (further proving why this is a horrible combat tactic) It's like shooting a gun. They're are made to be as accurate as possible, but the user still has to know the way that particular gun works. When I throw, I have to learn how each knife works. The longer and heavier the knife is, the farther it travles before it does a full spin.

And you're absolutely right, you're better off carrying a gun =^.^= LuLz

50% pop, 46% soda in my home county. That explains a lot.

The earth orbits the sun at a distance of 81.8 billion fathoms.

In 2005 the team around Mike Brown (the astronomer responsible for Pluto's reclassification as dwarf planet) discovered another new dwarf planet with its own moon, which they nicknamed Xena and Gabrielle respectively. Once the International Astronomical Union asked for his wish for the official names he chose Eris for the planet so he could name its moon for the eponymous goddess' daughter Dysnomia, what literally means "lawlessness", a reference to Lucy Lawless who played Xena.
