The reason to use cold water and not hot when cooking isn't that it will get dirty in the water heater. It is that hot water is more likely to pick up lead from the solder joints in your house if you have an older house that they used lead solder. And giving your kids brain damage. You water will have much less lead in it if you use cold water than hot. Another good idea is letting the water run for a bit to make sure no lead is in it. As the longer the water sits the more lead could have been put in the water.

sushi is cooked, eating completly raw would make you sick, its just cooked/ steamed at a lower amount then usual like 140 degrees, you can look up stuff like that with cooks who do ' raw ' food which is mainly a lot of shredded veggies, but everything is cooked under 200 degrees.

Speaking as a Marine Biologist, I have to say that crabs and lobsters (indead most crustaceans) have very similar nociceptors (pain nerve cells) to ours. Whether they 'feel' pain as we do is up for debate, but they can certainly experience it. And being boiled alive has gotta hurt, even if you are a crab.

I didn't know most of the myths. I don't know anything about cooking, so it kinda explains why i don't.

I'm with jadedmom on this one, and I'll see her one better. I just read far enough to read the baking soda one (and yes it damn well does absorb odors), and the "sushi" one trying to explain it off as vinegared rice (which is literally true in japanese, but is so semantic and unbearably stupid that I can't even bother any further). What a sanctimonious and just plain idiotic piece of crap of a site.

And yes, video1221, I also think that lobster/crab thing with not feeling pain is also a steaming pile, but hey.

About the screaming lobsters- When I caught and cooked crabs, they were sitting quite quietly on the counter before I put them in the pot. When I threw them in, not only did they freak out and try to escape, but their arms and claws were doing a shake like a person would do when burning to death. What do you have to add regarding the crabs ? Do they feel the pain ?

You know what does work really well for getting smells out of your fridge? (And it's cheap, too.) Coffee grounds. It doesn't matter what kind, just get the cheapest kind you can find and spread it out on the shelf of your fridge and after a day or so the odor should be absorbed by the coffee grounds and you can take it out of the fridge. I'm sure you could probably just leave an open pacakge in their too to prevent smells.

Decent link... They must of made MILLIONS selling cheap Baking Soda. Some CEO's in the Arm & Hammer board room; 'Hey boys...We need to sell a lot more of this stuff. I got it we'll say it absorbs bad food odors and most everyone in this country owns a fridge!!!' What a farce...

Oh, so some guy uses unscientific methods to disprove "myths" and now your common held beliefs are shattered.

He is right on most of these, but some are incomplete as to give the reader the wrong impression.

by the way, my friends family won't even touch aluminum and will avoid anything to do with it. She'd seriously run away in fear if I had a piece of aluminum foil, it's kinda funny.
I'll be sure to tell her there's nothing to her fears (I doubt she'll believe me though)

Baking soda doesn't absorb odor? I guess I'm an idiot then. :(
