where do baby corns come from?   all joking aside, are they just regular corn that's picked before it's grown?

Whenever a colleague says "Can I ask a stupid question?", I respond, "Can you ask any other kind?". Just one of the reasons I am universally loved.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.   Chemicals volatizing from the salt because of temperature? (Guessing.)

How come when I'm waiting for a slow Internet page to load, I see "waiting for facebook.com" down in the lower corner. And I don't have facebook opened on my browser.

that happens while your browsing history is being added on your timeline for all your facebook friends to see

the website is pulling some element from facebook - maybe a pic is hosted there? That would be the most common thing

Do companies/people post Facebook photos outside of Facebook regularly? I don't usually see that.

 

But the most common would be 3rd party API/Plugin/Ad Network files (usually JavaScript but also iframes, CSS, etc) -- http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js , http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js, http://www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js, http://ad.crwdcntrl.net/4/pe=y%7Cc=244%7Cvar=CN.ad.lotame.tags%7Cout=json, http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fdevelopers.facebook.com%2Fdocs%2Fplugins%2F&width=50&layout=button&action=like&show_faces=false&share=false&height=22&, etc. (all from epicurious.com)

I just noticed this today for the first time. I was trying to load something from Zappos. I don't really want some FB add-on slowing down my shopping!
