Some questions

Is there any actual evidence (i.e. ancient documents) that the phrase "worth his salt" actually came from Roman soldiers only getting a ration of salt if they did a good enough job?


Who came up with the myth that eating Pop Rocks and Coke at the same time would kill you, and what was the ridiculous "reasoning" behind it, beyond the carbonation in soda?


Speaking of soda, will it actually rob your bones of calcium? (I'm not terribly concerned, just curious.)


Have you ever heard of The New Cactus Band? I've got the record (on actual vinyl!) "Son of Cactus". I like it.
