comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
I'd never known anyone to eat mango skin either, and then just about a week ago I saw a friend at work doing it. So you aren't totally alone :). To me, the main reason not to eat the skin is it doesn't taste good or have a pleasant texture.

comment What are the benefits of “fuzzy logic” in a rice cooker?
@CareyGregory not to be contrary, but I've had that unit for at least 12 years, use it a couple times a week, and it has been absolutely trouble free.

comment Is it safe to store unopened metal cans in the refrigerator?
Yeah, this pretty much has to be bogus. Lower temperatures universally slow bacteria growth and slow all chemical reactions, including those that would cause metal to leach. I don't know why you'd want to store unopened cans in the fridge, it seems like a waste of energy, but I don't think it is dangerous.
