People Are Stealing Millions From Grocery Stores by Scanning Items as Carrots
Cashiers used to tape gum to their hands to check out family members. Used to work for a very large loss prevention company. Hard to explain why youre the national leader for Wrigley sales.

Thank you for your indulgence,
If I had a carrot for every time....
I would never do something that dishonest but stores that rely on self check out deserve the loss of revenue IMHO.
I detest that at midnight my closest grocery store closes the 6 self scan machines, and instead has one cashier open with 6 people in line. I can scan and bag my things just as fast as the cashier, as long as the person on oversee of the self scans is there to promptly check IDs and OK/scan any coupons.
On a related note, anyone follow Carrot Facts on Twitter? One of the funniest twitter feeds I have ever seen!

One of my favorite factoids...
... carrot composition is approximately 90% water.
That's all I got...
So its mostly orange water and a bit of green leafy stuff ?
I updated the title to reflect the wide variety of information now available on this thread.
^ hard to top that one
From Jeffrey Steingarten, author of "The Man Who Ate Everything." Quote ever so slightly modified...
"Imagine that you are a juicy and attractive carrot. All around you are predators--germs and fungi, bugs and snails, birds and animals--who see you as nothing more than their next meal. You have no house to hide in, no feet for running away, no money with which to buy a gun. It's a real jungle out there, and even the neighboring vegetables covet your place in the sun. What do you do? You pull yourself together and evolve a complex system of chemical warfare.
Additional information from Stone Glasgow:
We routinely tolerate toxic chemicals in the food we eat every day. Even organic fruits and vegetables contain extremely toxic chemicals. For every gram of artificial pesticide residue we consume, we eat over 22 pounds of natural toxins found the vegetables themselves.
As an example, I've prepared a sampling of a carrot's ingredients, other than carbohydrates, fat, water, fiber, and protein, a carrot contains 371 measurable compounds, many of them extremely toxic to humans.
Listed below the ingredients list I have compiled a listing of the chemical properties of these chemicals. You'll see that the chemicals in carrots are used as sunscreens, pesticides, tranquilizers, contraceptives, decongestants, refrigerants, preservatives, soap, sedatives, and rat poison. Many are carcinogenic and toxic to the heart and central nervous system.
We are able to ingest carrots and receive a net health benefit because the poisons are found in small amounts. As you can see, carrots are anything but "chemical free."
A carrot contains:
ALANINE, ACETONE, ACETALDEHYDE, ALPHA LINOLENIC ACID, ALUMINUM, ARSENIC, ASARONE, ALPHA TERPINENE, BORNYL ACETATE, BORON, BROMINE, BUTYRIC ACID, CADMIUM, CAMPHOR, CHOLESTEROL, CHOLINE, CHROMIUM, COBALT, CYSTINE, CYSTEINE, ETHANOL, FORMIC ACID, FUMARIC ACID, GLUTAMIC ACID, HYDROGEN CYANIDE, ISOBUTYRIC ACID, ISOPRENE, LAURIC ACID, LEAD, LECITHIN, LITHIUM, LYSINE, MALIC ACID, MERCURY, METHYLAMINE, MYRISTICIN, NICKEL, OXALIC ACID, PHENYLALANINE, PHOSPHORUS, QUERCETIN, SILICON, STEARIC ACID, SULFUR, TARTARIC ACID, TIN, TITANIUM, TRYPTOPHAN, XYLITOL.
I didn't carrot all for that post...
What? They're legal in my state!
