  3. You can fry your leftover spaghetti noodles.
  4. The average person in Italy eats more than 51 pounds of pasta every year.
  5. According to Miss Manners (a.k.a. Judith Martin), a fork is the only utensil that may be used to eat spaghetti while anyone is looking.  According to Foodimentary, you can do it however you darn well please.
