Toys. Fish. Robots. Monsters. Feels. Not just my Christmas list but an abridged list of all the fine-crafted stories in Pixar’s arsenal. But 101 Facts is here to show you behind the curtain and beyond the toybox and give you some of the finest facts that the Pixarverse has to offer. We’re sad strange little men (and women) that have your pity, so give us a cheeky like too.
Imperfect Produce is a wonderful startup that rescues perfectly good, healthy and fresh fruits and veggies from being thrown away due to cosmetic reasons. The company buys the malformed items at a discount from local farms and passes it along to their customers through subscription delivery. Currently, delivery is limited to the San Francisco Bay Area, but hopefully an ecological solution like this is bound to grow in abundance.
In America, 1 in 5 fruits and vegetables grown don’t fit grocery stores’ strict cosmetic standards — the crooked carrot, the curvy cucumber, the undersized apple — usually causing them to go to waste. Imperfect’s mission is to find a home for these “ugly” fruits and veggies, starting with our produce delivery subscription in the Bay. And because they look a little funny, you get the 30-50% off. Why sign up? You’ll save money, eat healthy, support local farmers and fight food waste and the drought.

In a previous episode of How Does It Grow from 2014, host Nicole Cotroneo Jolly visited the Lee Brothers cranberry farm in Chatsworth, New Jersey to find out how the natively American fruit grows, how it’s farmed and why water plays such a big role.
Cranberries grow on low trailing vines in something that’s called bogs. The plants are perennial meaning they survive year after year. Here the oldest vines are over 65 years old. Cranberries love this sort of sandy soil and they take a long time to grow – 16 months. You can seee here that while the berries are ripening, the buds for next year’s crop are already growing on the vine. …So if the cranberries grow on dry land well, what is all this water for? Twice a year the farmers flood the bogs. First in December for the duration of winter. This is when the plants go dormant and their blanket of water insulates the vines from harsh winter frost. In the spring the bogs are drained and the cranberry’s pink flowers bloom

A 69-year old man named Otis Johnson, who was recently let out of prison after serving 44 years for the attempted murder of a police officer, is currently trying to adjust to a very changed modern world from the one he had left almost half a century ago. In an interview with Al-Jazeera, Johnson spoke openly about encountering new technology.
I got off at Times Square and I was looking at the atmosphere, the new things that was [sic] happening. And I seen [sic] that everybody was or the majority of the people were talking to themselves. Then I looked closer and they all seemed to have things in their ears. …iPhones or something like that. And I thought to my mind, what everybody become CIA or agents or stuff like that. Because that’s the only thing I can think of. Somebody walking around with wires in their ears.
