Default trivia 7/11

trivia 7/11

Google uses enough energy to continuously power 200,000 homes.

1. In 1841, Edgar Allan Poe wrote the first modern detective story: "The
Murders in the Rue Morgue". What was the Rue Morgue?
2. Commercial Jingle Dept.
"Hurry on down to _______ where the burgers are charcoal broiled."
3. Three of these moons belong to Uranus; which one belongs to Jupiter?
a. - Cordelia
b. - Europa
c. - Ophelia
d. - Sycorax
4. "Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs" is the theme song to what TV sitcom ?
5. What's the longest (land) mountain chain in the world ?
Bonus; How long is it ?) (To the nearest 1,000 miles)
6. We all remember the famous cowboy, Pecos Bill... who remembers the name
of his girlfriend ?
7. In Greek Mythology, what sort of creature was Medusa ?
8. Which country has, as of 2018, the most Miss Universe winners ?
a. - Venezuela
b. - Colombia
c. - Sweden
d. - USA

On the side of your egg carton, right by (or below) the “Sell By” date, you’ll
see a three-digit code. No, it’s not an arbitrary serial number; it’s the
Julian date, your fail-safe guide to fresh eggs.
1. A street in Paris
2. Hardee's
3. - b
4. "Frasier"
5. The Andes
6. Slue-foot Sue
7. a Gorgon
8. - a

Ranging from 001 to 365, the Julian date represents the day the eggs were
packaged. Each code corresponds to a day in the year, so 001 would be
January 1 and 365 would represent December 31. Once the eggs are packaged,
they’ll keep in your fridge for four to five weeks.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, eggs can be sold
for up to 30 days after they were packaged. So even if they’re in stock and
not expired, they might be weeks old.

It’s obvious newly packaged eggs taste better, but an egg’s quality can
significantly deteriorate over time. As an egg ages, it loses moisture and
carbon dioxide, making the whites thinner and the yolk more susceptible to
breaking. And when you eat old, expired eggs, your risk of getting a
food-borne disease from them increases.

the julian pack date is handy if your brain does julian calendar math - open dating is different "egg carton labeling / dating"

Egg processors typically print dates commonly called "Code Dates" on cartons for purposes of rotating stock or controlling inventory. "EXP", "Sell By", "Best if Used Before" are examples of terminology used for code dating. Use of code dates on USDA graded eggs is optional, however, if they are used, certain rules must be followed.

If an expiration date is used, it must be printed in month/day format and preceded by the appropriate prefix. "EXP", "Sell By", "Not to be sold after the date at the end of the carton" are examples of expiration dates. Expiration dates can be no more than 30 days from the day the eggs were packed into the carton.

Another type of code dating used indicates the recommended maximum length of time that the consumer can expect eggs to maintain their quality when stored under ideal conditions. Terminology such as "Use by", Use before", "Best before" indicates a period that the eggs should be consumed before overall quality diminishes. Code dating using these terms may not exceed 45 days including the day the eggs were packed into the carton.

note that some states are more strict than USDA regs.

another unpleasant issue: there is / was nothing to preclude egg packagers from taking back "expired" eggs for rewashing/repacking/redating/resale.
