My sister and I were talking about the recent tuna-mercury scare. Her question?
"Can't you just cook the tuna to get rid of the mercury?"
Last time I checked, heat can do many wonderful things. Evaporating heavy metal from fish isn't one of them.
I also saw a forum where a poster asked if it was possible to leave the bananas out of a "recipe" for oatmeal, and at work a woman wanted a latte made with half and half but without whipped cream (because of the calories) - whipped heavy whipping cream has less calories per tablespoon than half and half!
What other strange things do you people think about food?
