OMG - who wrote this? An excellent snippet:

“The raw cashews are then roasted at high heat, either by steaming them in a large rotating drum or vat of boiling oil to remove urushiol remnants before they can be shelled, thoroughly dried, and peeled.”

So, they’re ROASTED by STEAMING them in BOILING OIL.

No, pretty sure the Heave thing is correct, especially since it can essentially be ‘underground’ when muddy soil freezes hard and pushed the water content upward as ice.

I come across it all the time here in the NE, on winter hikes mostly, especially on a cold (20° or below) morning when the previous day was warmer/rainy.

Who throws things in the trash?

My electronics are all recycled - by NYC law, actually.

A bit of a pain in the butt to hold on to old devices and electrical equipment until an electronics recycling day, but even the copper and magnets from random electrical/appliance devices get reused in this way.

Outside of NY, I have to pay a small fee to bring my electronics to a container at the local garbage/recycling center, which then gets transported to a similar electronics recycling/recovery center.

If your town doesn’t have such a facility, you should fight for it!

And just yesterday an article made the front page saying it was due to a specific yam variety that cause double ovulation to be so high.

Gotta slip the nazis in there somehow, though!
