I bet you didn't know........

according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture, the 9 beans that cause the most gas are:
1. Soybeans
2. Pink beans
3. Black beans
4. Pinto beans
5. California small white beans
6. Great northern beans
7. Lima beans
8. Garbanzos
9. Blackeyed peas

This comes from Uncle John's Absolutely Absorbing Bathroom Reader, the 12th Edition by the Bathroom Readers' Institute. I'm loving this book. It's full of bits on trivia and so much fun to read (and not just in the bathroom. LOL)

Did you know the single most ordered item in American restaurants is French fries? Or that the first email was sent over the internet in 1972? It also tells the origin of such things as Kellogg's Corn Flakes, the shopping cart, and the first drive-in. It tells 3 celebrities who say they've seen UFOs (Mohammed Ali, Jimmy Carter, and William Shatner). Like I said, it's just a fun book. I have another edition of it and can't wait to read it, too.
