I would probably say California for the eggplant thing, but this report I found shows that Florida has more acres of eggplant than CA.

Still, it's not anywhere 2/3 of the world's eggplant let alone 2/3 of just the US. :-S

I think the right answer is New Jersey.

Amazingly, we have a winner. I'm pretty sure my sources are correct, but it floored me that New Jersey would produce about 2/3 of the world's eggplant. I guess the "Garden State" is properly nicknamed!

Again, I'm still amazed at this piece of trivia.

Dang, for some reason I knew that, but it slipped my mind. Though why is "Joisey" famous for tomato's rather than eggplant?

Another weird horticultural piece of trivia, the county which I'm originally from in Wisconsin, Marathon County, produces about 85% of the Ginseng in the US. I don't know if they still do it, but there used to be a BIG international auction after harvest each year. Pretty profitable business I believe.
Another pointless piece of trivia from TTT.

Still doesn't explain why you took credit the "ones you thought of". Maybe seem like nothing, but these little things define people.

You're losing respect from members becuase of events like this one. Maybe not the type of person we are looking for in the NFL's Finest league. We're looking for cool, good guys, not people who will cheat on a stupid little contest.


Agreed with both parts. For one, on some I was stumped and looked it up but didn't post since I knew it'd kill it for everyone who was trying. Also, saying you could have to bail in the middle of the league because of your parents plus this doesn't look good to anybody at all.
