You would think that we have come a long way from the belief of medieval travellers in the borametz – a cross between a plant and an animal. Whilst never encountered in real life it was thought that this plant produced melon-like fruit which when ripened burst open to reveal miniature lambs with fleece as soft as cotton (which is what it was!).
Through the years, great minds have been exercised as to whether or not the light is on in the fridge after the door has closed! Somehow, in spite of assurances that the light goes off, there is still an element of doubt that some entertain. However, the "glow" in the title does not refer to the fridge light, but the possibility of having irradiated food stored there, and the uncertainties still remain.
