While the list itself is good the information included with it has several errors.

"Tabasco is hot because it is acidic." This is just plain wrong.

"Don't store onions near potatoes because they promote rot in tomatoes." Yet again, no one proofreads.

That's as far as I got before I realized I don't give a fuck so there may be more errors.

I can list thousands of things that don't need to be refrigerated.

I could be wrong, but before most battery makers switch to the better cell type they use now days, there was a shitty cell type (you can still find it in really cheap batteries) that was very sensitive to heat. Thus you would refrigerate them to keep em charged til you needed to use em.

Something along those lines. I remember they sold a set during a wootoff and the forums went nuts because they were basically worthless.

Edit: yup, Nimh and nicd batteries lose 2% per day at room temp.
