Random Fact:

DID YOU KNOW: (I didn't!)

The word "Gotten", often assumed to be of American origin, is actually of English origin...
All this time I was annoyed at the yanks saying gotten, when it was us britons not using it properly! Its an archaic word for the past tense of "to get"!

Sorry to bore you lot to death.. I was bored myself, and thought I'd write some chaff...

Blessed Be x

    Was it not a marketing ploy changing the name?

    Kentucky fried Chicken = unhealthy (coz of the fried bit)

    KFC = Healthy (no fried bit ye see)

    Make more sense to me than a genetically modified chicken. I thought was illegal to sell GM foods in Britain?

    They have to label it very clearly methinks.
    All food products containing genetically modified (GM) soya and maize are to be clearly labelled, following a new agreement between European member states.

    Are they allowed to sell GM animals?

    If they claim that they were unaware chickens they were getting were GM then I think they can get away with it! cruel hey!

    Another Fact:
    MacDonalds and Burger King put a chemical on thier chips and burgers which sends a impulse to your brain to make you think that what your body is eating is good, and tells it to produce saliva. In turn when you have finished eating you are still providing saliva and your brain thinks you are still hungry; therfore you buy more food!
