Trivia of the Day for Saturday

The first drive through window at a restaurant was at the McDonald’s in Sierra Vista, AZ. It was put in so the soldiers from Ft. Huachuca could get food since the base had a regulation prohibiting anyone in uniform from entering a business establishment.

1 out of 3 of all cows in the US used for food purposes (beef) are used by the McDonald’s Corp.

About 80 percent of all bird species in the world inhabit wetlands.

A pound of termites has more nutrients than a pound of beef or pork.

If a bacterium has enough nutrients to live, it will probably divide into two daughter cells. If not, it will probably form a spore casing that can be revived later on, as in the case of Bacillus or Clostridium. They can live for centuries, as evidenced by the “discovery” of bacteria from the ancient Egyptian tombs.
