Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

You obviously didn't bother to check what I told you.

So anyway, you are flat out wrong. Plants and almost all animals make their own vitamin c for their own needs, and commercial Vitamin C has not been isolated in commercial quantity from plants for decades. It has been manufactured from glucose via the Reichstein process since the 1930s, although recently it has been supplanted by a bacterial fermentation process.

If you can find some evidence of vitamin C's pesticidal properties, do share. But since you have spouted nothing but bullshit, my guess is that that is more bullshit.

Got any other bullshit?

So anyways C is taken from plants and sold for human consumption. plants make C to kill bugs so therefore its a pesticide.

It is made by most animals through normal metabolism. Primates, guinea pigs, bats and a few birds are an exception. It's destroyed by cooking, hence we don't get any in our diet, but it's not required for most - it's made in their own bodies. Whale blubber has almost as much vitamin C in it as oranges, for instance. This discovery explained why those in arctic climates do not get scurvy - they eat the meat raw while western visitors insisted on cooking theirs.

The gene that makes it is defective in primates and it's a vitamin for us, but it's not for your pet dog or cat. Any idiot can google what I just said.

Well, almost any idiot....

It's made by all (I *think* - there may be some exceptions) plants, and almost all animal, for their own internal purposes. Humans (and other primates) and a few other animals are the exception, not the rule, and require it in their diet. I'm quite certain - but willing to be proven wrong - that your "source" of this misinformation is an idiot.

So - did you fall for someone else's bullshit or did you just pull that one out of your ass?

Answer to the triva question is Vitamin C. made by citrus to kill bugs trying to eat the fruit. We need it to stay alive.
