During the 1940 Blitzkrieg, the Luftwaffe often struck under the cover of darkness. In order to make it more difficult for the German planes to hit targets, the British government issued citywide blackouts. The Royal Air Force was able to repel the German fighters in part because of the development of new, secret radar technology. The on-board Airborne Interception Radar (AI), first used by the RAF in 1939, had the ability to pinpoint enemy bombers before they reached the English Channel. But to keep that under wraps, according to Stolarczyk’s research pulled from the files of the Imperial War Museum, the Mass Observation Archive, and the UK National Archives, the Ministry provided another reason for their success: carrots.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

To this day 83% of Americans still believe that carrots will help you see better to the point where doctors would also encourage the notion that carrots can improve eyesight.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

I Need a Second Quote

Where did it come from?  It primarily came from the Window Industry.

HUD = Home Urban Development.

Back in the 1980s, every window manufacturer marketed that their windows were the best.  They undercut their competition and sliced and diced with materials that were never proven for energy savings.  The window marketing groups spread the wisdom of getting a second quote to knock down their competition to sell their products that were largely overpriced.

The consumers were the victims of this scheme after millions of consumers faced financial hardship the government had to get involved. What Is HUD’s Mission? The Department of Housing and Urban Development is the Federal agency responsible for national policy and programs that address America’s housing needs, improve and develop the Nation’s communities, and enforce fair housing laws.
