What Wikipedia can't tell you about alcohol

1) Do you know that the cafeteria of many high schools in Europe give out alcoholic drinks to teenagers and that itself is pretty much a common scenario. Even most McDonalds throughout Europe put alcoholic beverages on their menu. On the contrary, the strictest laws on teenage drinking in Western civilization can be found in the US.

2) You need approximately 600 grapes on hand to make a bottle of wine.

3) There are an estimated 49 million bubbles in a bottle of Champagne.

4) An interesting fact about alcohol is that you can find minerals in alcohol. What's more interesting is that all minerals essential to human life can be found in alcohol. How many? 13.

5) Have you heard of the phrase "Mind your P's and Q's"? Have you always wondered what the P & Q stand for? Well, according to one theory, alcohol is served in pints and quarts at pubs in England. Well, Wikipedia will tell you that in the 17th century, bartenders would ask patrons to mind their pints and quarts and would watch their alcohol consumption on how much pints and quarts they have drunk. What Wikipedia doesn't tell you that another reason why the patrons were asked to be mindful of their pints and quarts was that if they imbibed too much, they would become unruly. Anyway, this is just one theory on what P's and Q's stand for. Wikipedia has several others, but you can look that up yourself, right?

6) How about the word 'honeymoon'? Do you know that it has its origin in an alcoholic drink called mead? Back in ancient Babylon, it was customary for the soon-to-be son-in-law to receive a month's supply of mead from his soon-to-be father-in-law. Hence, the term 'honey month' came to be, and gradually it became honeymoon.

7) Have you watched Vikings on the History Channel? Well, they were a pretty mean lot, weren't they? Do you know how they celebrated their victories? They took the skulls of their defeated enemies and fill those with their favourite alcoholic drinks, from which they toasted and drunk to their victories. Pretty gruesome, huh?

8) You've watched Sex & The City, haven't you? Well, if you haven't, it can only mean two things: You're a straight guy who doesn't like such shows, or you're an idiot. Of course you're not an idiot, we're just having fun with you. After all, this is all about alcohol, and alcohol is supposed to be fun, right? ;) ... Anyways, the girls in Sex & The City enjoy a cocktail called Manhattan. Can you guess the inventor of this cocktail. You wouldn't believe it, but it's Winston Churchill's mother! Of all people ... In case you're wondering what Manhattan comprises of, it's made with whiskey and sweet vermouth.

9) You've heard of Ferdinand Magellan, right? If you haven't, then sadly you're not into history. Magellan, who famously circumnavigated the world, loved his Sherry so much that he spent more money stockpiling the drink than he did with ammunition. If you decided to look up Magellan on Wikipedia, you will find that Magellan was killed in the Philippines in 1521 during the Battle of Mactan. One would have wondered what if he had spent all his money on ammunition instead of Sherry. He could have lived to tell the tale and the course of history would have changed. Just think about it.

10) For the last and final fact, the production of alcohol has been traced back at least 12,000 years. Wikipedia seems to back this up, by stating that between 10,000 BC and  5,000 BC, which is roughly the period of the late Stone age, people discovered jugs made during that period which led them to believe that intentionally fermented beverages existed at least as early as the Neolithic period.

Cream Crackers: A Story

Once a upon a time, in an online supermart called Dinasou.com, there was a packet of cream crackers named Julie's, or simply Julie. Julie was unlike other cream crackers, like Shoon Fatt, Hup Seng and Jacob, simply because Julie was a girl and the other cream crackers were boys. Julie felt sad because she was ostracized over her gender, but she held up her head high and maintained her spirits while looking at customers scanning Dinasou.com's webpage to buy grocery items.

One day, a customer called Jane was deciding on which cream cracker to buy. She looked at the four cream crackers staring right back at her from the computer screen. Shoon Fatt Cream Crackers Special was priced at RM10.20, which was a saving of 3.8% from RM10.60. Jane also noted that Shoon Fatt weighed at 800g. She then looked at Julie, which was a saving of 8%, from RM5.00 to RM4.60. But Jane saw that Julie weighed only at 295g, so in her head she figured which was more value for money. Jane scrolled further down the variety of Dinasou.com's biscuit selection and saw Hup Seng Ping Pong Cream Crackers and Jacob's Cream Crackers, which were both a saving of 8.3%, from RM4.80 to RM4.40. Hup Seng weighed at 428g, while Jacob weighed at 300g. Based on all the information, Jane finally decided to purchase Hup Seng and put him in her cart. As Jane was doing so, Hup Seng smirked at all the others, especially at Julie, and said, "See, I'm the popular choice, and I will always be the popular choice."

Shoon Fatt and Jacob just shook their heads and simply brushed off that indignant remark, but Julie took it to her heart. She started sobbing and wondered why no one wanted to buy her. She felt like jumping off the screen into oblivion, but of course she was stuck there. 

Just when Julie felt there was no hope for her at all, another customer named Derek, who was this good-looking hunk and loved anything in orange, clicked on the page where all the biscuits were. Derek was an indecisive buyer, and he took a long time deciding which biscuit he wanted to buy. He knew he wanted a packet of biscuits, but he just didn't know which one he wanted. Just then, he saw Julie and looked over her attractive packaging. Derek, who didn't know any better, clicked on Julie and put her in his cart. And it was just because she was wearing orange. 

Moral of the story: Women will always be judged based on their looks, not how much value they can give. But at least Julie has a happy ending.

The End.

How 'bout a Cracker? It's a biscuit, only different ...

It's amazing what you can find on Wikipedia. We at Dinasou.com have actually perused the entry on 'crackers' and found that they are not exactly the same as biscuits. For one, a cracker is a baked food typically made from flour and they have holes in them, called "docking" holes, which are made to stop overly large air pockets from forming in the cracker while baking. They are normally made from salted flour.

Have a look at our own selection of crackers below, which are only just some of the crackers you can find at Dinasou.com.

Julie's Cheese Crackers
Munchy's Vege Crackers
