Comment: My Chinese friend told me about a legend "all Chinese" know, but
it seems so ridiculous.

He said that if girls eat papaya, their breasts will grow.
Is this true?

Pretty weird to me.

According to my (teenaged and flat chested at the time) sister, it is peas. She must have eaten peas at every meal for nearly 6 months. Her breasts did grow, but I think it had more to do with being 14 than with legume consumption.

Comment: Is it true that if a sexy waitress gives me three olives in a cup
alongside my bloody mary, that she wants a threesome with me and my
boyfriend?!

That brings up another question to be asked, what happens if a non-sexy* waitress or a waiter of any level of sexiness gives you three olives in a cup?

Also, olives with a Bloody Mary?

* To the person with the drink of course as YSMV.

Thats one way to get a young teenager to eat her peas...

It's all to do with the exchange rate.

Well, if young girls don't eat anything, their breasts will not grow.

So I suppose you could fill in whatever food you please, as long as it's got some nutrition to it, and legitimately claim that eating it will help cause breasts to grow (in girls of the right age.)

There may be some truth to this, but you have to have one of the five 2 dollar bills left that are wanted on the collectors market.

Old $2 Bills Are Now Worth $20,000

Quote:
Not all two dollar bills are worth ten thousand times their original market price. Only 1986-series bill with an AUH-prefix on the seven digit serial number below the billís pic is worth the whopping 20 grand. One of the five still remaining was sold in Toronto a few months back, with $20, 00 as the starting price. The bill itself was actually sold for 10, 000.
