How about dumb sh*t that people actually *do* believe, like eating local honey will help with seasonal allergies?  Or that genetically modified crops are dangerous to eat?  Or that eating before bed will somehow make you fat?

The only saying I actually believe is "you are what you eat".  This is true.

 

If you eat a lot of fatty foods, you become fat....if you eat a lot of vegetables rich in vitamins/minerals you get healthier and feel better etc etc

 

I highly doubt there's anyone on the planet who believes the OPs list.  Unless they have a mental illness.

 

Hah! Wrong!

 

I eat nothing but junk food and I became a vegetable.  :rofl:

farmers would scatter broken eggs into their fields hoping they would bring forth an abundant crop.

 

Egg shells can be used as fertilizer (calcium) so that one isn't too far off depending on what your growing.

Don't eat peanuts at any kind of performance, whether it's a play or a racing event (really!). The legumes are believed to give the performers or players really bad gas..

      Snapchat now lets users scan food and wine labels
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      The Scan feature on Snapchat is pretty helpful, as it lets users identify songs playing in the background, courtesy of a partnership with Shazam, roughly 400 breeds of dogs, and 90% of "all known plants and trees".

      Now, Snapchat is adding support for food and wine labels to its visual search lineup, with the app's in-app camera now being able to scan packaged food and wine labels to surface information regarding the product. The feature should work like other standalone food and wine apps, which display nutritional details when barcodes are scanned via the camera.

      Snapchat's Nutrition Scanner, powered by Yuka, will let users scan about one million food products, and display ratings on the quality of ingredients in many packaged foods. The rating is based on the product's basic nutritional content, presence of additives, and its organic nature. Information about 12 million types of wine labels has been taken from Vivino, an online wine marketplace.

      Last week, Snapchat also added the ability to add music to Snaps for iOS users and said it was working on letting users create custom sounds to add to their stories.

      Each generation, hordes of charlatans have wanted to give, in most cases, to sell such treasure. In truth, that elixir has been known for any human from the very start of her/his life. It's just pure portable Water == all biochemical/physical processes in the body run with/in/through Water. In short, don't drink anything (teas, coffee, sodas, alcohols etc-etc), but just & only potable Water. In fact, even junk food becomes much less harmful for organism thanks to. Good Luck.

      Uber for Business launches Eats in new markets
      by Paul Hill



      Uber for Business is bringing its Eats service to more markets around the world. The launch begins today in Brazil, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom but will launch in over 20 countries in total this year. Uber for Business decided to expand its Eats service after getting messages from companies looking to support employees that are being forced to work from home. The move will help restaurants partnered with Uber Eats as they’ll get more custom.

      According to Uber, several new features are coming to the platform alongside today’s announcement. One of these includes employees having the ability to use their individual corporate cards to manage their orders through a business profile on the Uber Eats app or on the website. Some other new added features include:

      Uber didn’t state which other countries are set to receive the new service but it should make an announcement at a later date before launching in those countries.

      Just Eat and Takeaway.com reach agreement on merger
      by Paul Hill

      The online food delivery services Just Eat and Takeaway.com have announced the formation of a Combined Group officially called Just Eat Takeaway.com N.V. after reaching an agreement on the terms of their merger. In the announcement published today, the new firm says that it believes the merger will deliver “substantial benefits” for shareholders, consumers, employees, and other stakeholders.

      By merging the two companies, the new entity will have access to many markets including those where Just Eat or Takeaway.com are market leaders including in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Canada. In 2018, the firms had a total of 355 million orders worth €7.3 billion.



      Once the new Combined Group’s merger is completed, it will operate with a two-tier board structure consisting of a Management Board and a Supervisory Board which will provide oversight. The two boards will consist of talent from both firms. The make-up of the boards are as follows:

      Management Board:

      Jitse Groen, currently CEO of Takeaway.com, will become CEO of the Combined Group

      Paul Harrison, currently CFO of Just Eat, will become CFO of the Combined Group

      Brent Wissink, currently CFO of Takeaway.com, will become Co-COO of the Combined Group

      Jörg Gerbig, currently COO of Takeaway.com, will become Co-COO of the Combined Group

      Supervisory Board:

      Mike Evans, currently chairman of Just Eat, will become chairman of the Supervisory Board

      Adriaan Nühn, currently chairman of Takeaway.com Supervisory Board, will become vice-chairman of the Supervisory Board and senior independent non-executive director of the Combined Group

      Three independent non-executive members selected by Just Eat

      Two non-executive members selected by Takeaway.com, including one member nominated by Gribhold

      One more member will be nominated by Delivery Hero under an existing agreement with Takeaway.com

      Under the terms of the merger, Just Eat Shareholders will receive 0.09744 new Takeaway.com shares in exchange for each Just Eat share. Immediately after the merger, Just Eat Shareholders will own 52.15% of the business while Takeaway.com shareholders will own 47.85%. The share prices were calculated based on each firm’s share price as of July 26.
