so this is the way the world ends. not with a political debate, but with an all out candy brawl.

candy is way more important than politics!

I would just like to say that the worst candy you've ever eaten does not to me imply dental work or overindulgence or gluttony or hoarding or late nights over a toilet bowl sniffing the erstwhile contents of your bowels but something you would put in your mouth expecting candy and then spit out horrified and unable to trust for years and years and years.

i think the evaluation of the candy can be both experiential as well as sensory.

with salted licorice, it's both. :(

i've had some of that finnish licorice - the Salmiakki - and it tasted like urine. Not that I've ever had urine, mind you, but the taste approaches what urine smells like.

i did eat at least 3 Salmiakki, just to make sure i didn't like them, mostly because the Finns in the party kept insisting that it was by far their favorite candy.

I think it is the high levels of ammonia in those candies that make people addicted to them.

Before we get here a massive candy conflict ;) the new question for today:

Comics / graphic novels ?
You (used to) dig them? Which ones?

12"razormix 02-19-2008 07:53 AM

ME TOO?!! :confused: :o :D

As kid
kinda as 'fast food'

and I collected and read each volume like 2 dozen times

In my late teens / early 20s I did not read any comics / graphic novels, until a colleague (totally into Tin Tin) sort of re-awakened my interest.
Atm I like things like

off and on i've had phases of looking at comics & graphic novels. dudley d. watkins, jean giraud, charles burns, jamie hernandez, alan moore, neil gaiman.. others acannie remember their names. nowadays i still keep an eye on that world but not much because it seems that a lot of the writers and artists, particulary of "graphic novels" seem to take themselves awfully seriously and that's tedious.
