I never realised until this morning why Americans call it eggplant.


i honestly had never seen this before and was just putting it together in my head!


Apparently they grow longer and darker until they become good to eat. I had no idea that they started off looking like eggs.

good innit :slight_smile:


Holy piss! I never knew this!


Saw on FB earlier that apparently it is called metal because it is harder than rock - is this true?

Don’t think so.

I don’t know yet!


chk chk chk but they have swords


(I crossed out the exclamation mark because your Android revelation was only mildly surprising and maybe didn’t need exclaiming)
