    Fun Facts - Did You Know?

    Did You Know? Under ideal conditions, a yeast manufacturer can grow a single gram of yeast into more than a dozen TONS of yeast in less than five days!
    Bread was originally discovered to rise by Egyptians in 4000 B.C.....How?
    When they kneaded the dough with their feet, instead of their hands, the natural yeasts between their toes made the bread rise. YUMMY!!!

    Also some beers from Germany and Belgium still use a strand of yeast that are hundreds of years old. They have a few strands and some are kept hidden under lock and key. Sounds kinda gross but damn tasty.

    Your foot is the exact same size as the space between your fingertips and your elbows. It's true, I tested it myself.

    Cool, I don' have to take off my shoes the next time I want to buy shoes.

    Also, your waist is twice the length of your neck.

    Do any other body parts keep growing as you get older?
    Beauty is only skin deep. I love skin!

    I don't get it. The space between my fingertips and my elbows? Does that mean the distance from one arm's elbow to the fingertips? That's like twice the size of my feet. Am I missing something?

    I believe it is actually your wrist to your elbow.
