  1. LOL Alas, apparently I am stupid. I always thought a tomato was technically a fruit as well. Conversely, the Supreme Court of 1893 was pretty smart because they ruled that it should be a vegetable 😀

    It’s in Wikipedia, so it MUST be true. (Is that another Mount Stupid thing to say??)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nix_v._Hedden

    “Nix v. Hedden, 149 U.S. 304 (1893),[1] was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States that affirmed the lower court ruling that the tomato should be classified under customs regulations as a vegetable rather than a fruit. The Court’s unanimous opinion held that the Tariff Act of 1883 used the ordinary meaning of the words “fruit” and “vegetable,” under which a tomato is classified as a vegetable, instead of the technical botanical meaning.”

  2. So the story about them cutting off one breast is wrong? Or is it the word “historically” and the idea that they really existed that is not founded? Please fill me in so I can dismount Mount Stupid.
