How did “Madison” become a name? How much nicotine is in an eggplant? What was the inventor of Pringles last request in life? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. There’s a statute from 1909 that’s still on the books in Missouri that says if a bull has been running loose for at least three days, anyone’s allowed to castrate it. (

2. There’s nicotine in eggplants, but not much. You’d have to eat 20 POUNDS of eggplants to get the nicotine effect you get from one cigarette. (Los Angeles Times)

3. Fredric Baur is the inventor of Pringles, and before he died in 2008, his final request was to be cremated and buried in a Pringles can. His children fulfilled his request. (Gizmodo)

4. “Madison” only became a popular name for girls after “Splash” came out in 1984, when Daryl Hannah’s character picks the name off a Madison Avenue street sign. Tom Hanks even says, quote, “But Madison isn’t a name.” (Wikipedia)

5. “The Matrix” came out in 1999  and when Neo shows his passport, the expiration date says September 11th, 2001. (Freakin’ Facts)
