I had a friend grew a pineapple on his kitchen floor once. He bought a pineapple to eat, and when he sliced the top off it fell onto the floor. In ess than a year a new pineapple had started to develop in the leaves at the top. It must have gotten it's nutrition from all the cat turds that also 'lived' (yes they lived) on the floor.
I was at a party in the same guys house once. This was a guy that had done too much, too fast, too soon. He asked me if I'd like a nut, and produced this bag of assorted mixed nuts. I though - what the hell, and asked for the nut cracker. He didn't have a nut cracker. He had a G clamp. Not just any G clamp, but a micro precision lab G clamp. It took around 6000 turns to break a walnut. I asked him "Why did you buy nuts if you didn't have a nutcracker?", he replied that when he bought the nuts he thought he'd have a nutcracker by now.
Sorry let me just reiterate that point slowly:
HE THOUGHT, AT THE TIME OF BUYING THE NUTS, THAT HE'D ALSO HAVE OBTAINED A NUTCRACKER BY THE TIME HE DECIDED TO EAT THE NUTS.
OK, so I checked the date on the bag. This happened back in 1991, and the bag was dated 1987...
