They never cut holes in the bottom of peach baskets. Every time a shot was amde they had to climb a ladder and get the ball down. They had to continue to do this until rims were created.

I believe that peach baskets were the first ones used. The bottom was cut out.

The inventor of the game of basketball, a Canadian, used a volley ball at first. He was a sports instructor at a YMCA in Massachucetts, and he was looking for a indoor ball game, that could be played during the winter. He used peach baskets, nailed to the wall, with the bottoms cut out, as the goals. Doctor James Naismith was his name. Here is a link to a bio page about his interesting life. http://www.kansasheritage.org/people/naismith.html

If you continually cut it down, you will never know.

Are you talking about the vents that appear on the sides of some t-shirt bottoms? I don't know of anything else that could be called a cut.

it takes a peach 3 years to have more mold growing on the peach because and the reason i said more mold was becausepeaches already have mold on them some people call it peach fuzz but its mold and i am in a vert good science class so i should know Edit: Actually, it takes a cut up peach around 4 days to mould over and a full peach about 3 weeks. (This is without any preservatives or a fridge). I did a science experiment on it.

Basketball was invented by James Naismith who was a physical education teacher at the International Training School of the Young Mens Christian Association (YMCA) in Springfield, Mass on December 1st, 1891. He started the game using two peach backets with the bottoms cut out as what we now call nets. He needed a way to keep the young men fit during the cold winter months.

so people didn't have to climb up the basketball poles when someone scored, and the ball just fell out the bottom instead.

Restaurants can cut back on the amount of napkins and straws that arehanded out to each table or they can order thinner or smaller napkins. Also, using baskets with paper coverings are efficient because you can reuse the baskets and recycle the paper coverings.

Hi First of all peaches don't have segments. Citrus fruit such as oranges and grapefruits do. Anyway...First take a paring knife - that is the small (roughly 1.5 inch blade) and cut the peach in half. Grasp each half of the peach gently and turn in opposite directions - this should free the stone from one half of the peach. Set this half aside. Then, to remove the stone - BE CAREFUL - set the half still attached to the stone on a counter and strike the stone with your paring knife. Hold the peach in your palm and rotate the knife. The stone should now be easily removed. You can now proceed slicing each half of the peach. Place the peach with with the end that was attached to the stem facing away from you. You should begin slicing the peach at an angle which should reach 90 degrees once you get to the top of the peach continue slicing evenly to form uniform pieces. Hope this helps you! Sorry if I was too specific - I went to the Culinary Institute of America and...Food is my thing! Best Wishes and Happy Peach Slicing!

I do not recommend this, but the MSDS for acrylonitrile (starting material to make "acrylic" fibers and paints) states the odor resembles "mild peach kernels (slight)". It would be safer to buy a peach, eat it, wash off and dry out the kernel, cut it open, and take a wiff. Acrylonitrile is VERY bad for you. Source: I'm a chemist

This would be a peach. The fruit is the same color as the skin, and the seed in the center is called a stone.

No, peaches can not carry worms. But on occassion you will find a peach where a worm has eaten into it. Just cut that part out. You won't get worms from eating peaches.

If by "they" you mean James Naismith and a group of boys at a YMCA in Springfield, Mass. then "they" would have to go upstairs to the balcony where the hoop was attached and take the ball down. Later they would have to send somebody up with a ladder every time a basket was scored. Then eventually they decided, "Hey, you know what? We should cut a hole in the bottom of the basket so we don't have to go up and get it every time we score!!!!"

No! if you cut the cover in two each of the little bubbles of insulated air will burst! It may be too difficult to do it anyway. All those bubble bottoms will be topless.

there are no such things only V shaped valleys which have sides sloping down to a river that has cut the valley out of the rock and U shaped valleys with flat bottoms and steep sides. these have been carved out by glaciers
