I was just having a pillow fight!

A pillow fight is a game in which pillows are used as weapons. It is said to be common but I would think that this is only applicable to the West. Children in the West may have pillow fights during sleepovers but in Asia, the children caught doing that most probably get a spanking. In the West, the older ones even get to participate in organized pillow fights; as in Columbia University where a Spring Pillow Fight is incorporated into the spring semester. There, students run into the center of campus screaming and pillow fighting on midnight to relieve stress.At the University of Rochester in New York, it has been reported that in an orchestrated pillow fight, one team attacked and another defended one of the most visible and recognizable landmarks there,the Rush Rhees Library.

Plant Talk: Forbidden Fruits

Most certainly we have heard of  Adam and Eve and the forbidden apple, but there probably are many more fruits and vegetables, too that are forbidden. In an Egyptian news site, Bikyamasr, a senior reporter by the name Manar Ammar supposedly wrote that an Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women are not be close to bananas or cucumbers - carrots and zucchini, too since they resemble the male penis and could arouse them and make them think of sex. It is possible for the fruits or vegetables to be served at home though; provided they were to be cut by others in a hidden place where the women are not likely to see them. Probably, you don't have to use much imagination to find such a place.

Which of the following is not a fruit?
