The 10 Healthiest Foods in the World Include Almonds, Fish . . . and Pork Fat?

Who knew that when, in a terrible moment of weakness, you drank all of the grease that had dripped off of your George Foreman grill . . . you were actually being HEALTHY?

The BBC just enlisted a group of scientists to rank the 100 healthiest foods in the world, based on all of the nutrients they contain.  And number eight is pork fat.  They say it’s a good source of B vitamins and minerals.  Who knew?

Anyway, the top 10 healthiest foods are:  Almonds . . . cherimoya fruit . . . ocean perch fish . . . flatfish . . . chia seeds . . . pumpkin seeds . . . Swiss chard . . . pork fat . . . beet greens . . . and snapper.

And some of the more popular foods that finished outside the top 10 are:  Tangerines at 14th . . . peas 15th . . . chili powder 25th . . . kale 31st . . . cherries 47th . . . oranges 82nd . . . carrots 88th . . . and sweet potatoes 100th

Millennials Are Way Worse Than Their Parents at Basic Tasks Like Sewing or Home Repairs

  Sure, our parents are better at doing things like fixing the car or hanging wallpaper than us . . . but have you ever seen one of them try to use Snapchat?  It’s like watching a donkey trying to do calculus.

A new survey found that . . . unsurprisingly . . . millennials are way worse at a lot of basic jobs around the house than their parents.  Here are a few examples . . .

1.  60% of millennials can sew a button, versus 93% of their parents.

2.  55% can fix a blown fuse, versus 90% of their parents.

3.  34% can cook a meal from scratch, versus 57% of their parents.

4.  62% can check the tire pressure on their car, versus 77% of their parents.

5.  And 51% can hang wallpaper, versus 68% of their parents.

Why?  The people who ran the survey think it’s because people are living with their parents into their 20s and sometimes their 30s . . . so they don’t have to learn how to do that stuff around the house.

And also, schools are focusing less on classes like home ec or wood shop and teaching things like coding instead.
