Crazy Question?

Recommended Posts

What is the straw in (non-plastic) broom bristles made from? I was sweeping the kitchen floor recently and panicked when I suddenly realized I had no clue what material this is! :ph34r:

That's a really good question. Something I've never thought about.

Thankfully, broom bristles aren't made from wheat. Here's a link to some info on it:

A spherical meteorite 10 km in diameter traveling at 20 km/s has the kinetic energy equal to the calories in 550,000,000,000,000,000 Twinkies.

Thank you! Nifty information, how it's made and all. Guess I could have googled it, but it just didn't occur to me at the time. There goes my excuse for not sweeping! :rolleyes:

Maybe you could say there's wheat flour dust on the flour and sweeping would whisk it up into the air. You wouldn't want to breath that in and get sick now would you? LOL!
