    This morning I half-filled a Starbucks cup with water to pour on a plant. The cup had a little residual coffee, and the slightly-bubbly result was an interesting color. Now I know what is in all those water/juice/tea bottles I see on the floor in our transit trains and transit stations.

    At least that's what I choose to believe is in them...

    Pandora needs to up their widget game and add customization/themes something because it's the only thing on my phone that doesn't match and just looks stupid.

    Having eaten Vegemite (well, tasted it) I have to believe he smiled cruelly when he gave you that thing...

    I've been watching My Three Sons on MeTV, from its inception all the way through to its end. The original, black & white seasons were before my time, so I grew up thinking Robbie was the eldest son. :eek:

    Today's episode, which originally aired on January 9, 1971, had a young, but easily recognizable, Jodie Foster as a student/friend of the über-annoying daughter, Dodie. She played the part well, but there was nothing there to hint at what was to become of her. Oh--she had a crush on her new teacher. A man. :D

    For the record, I strongly prefer the B&W seasons, even though they're not the ones I grew up on. And I strongly resent how they just FORGOT all about Mike [the real eldest son] and Bub [William Frawley in a loveable role] after they left the show. :mad:

    Haven’t forgotten at all...in fact, that’s what me (and millions of others!) try Vegemite.

    Hence my belief that someone proffering the stuff would have a cruel smile. At least on the inside! :D

    Is there any living being the Chinese won't kill and eat?!

    And just in case anyone isn't aware, the Chinese dog and cat meat [and fur] trade involves heinous...unbelievable-sounding, but true, cruelty to these helpless, sentient beings. :(

    Oh, gosh, I remember feeling that way--it was after reading about, and seeing undercover photos taken at, slaughterhouses and factory farms. That was in 1988. Haven't eaten/worn/used dead animal products ever since! :D

    Probably P&CA

    Actually from what I've seen many of the mink garments I see on sale here use pelts imported from the US and Canada, where the fur farms are. With China and Russia their biggest markets.

    I'm pretty sure fur farming is banned in the UK, my country.

    Honestly I find it odd, how we abolished slaughterhouses, yet we think smoking is so bada** seriously, are we just that
    let it fly by night type? I also find it odd how those kinds of memories of Bizzare Foods trigger within the show, the same name too, I used to watch that and also No Reseverations on Travel Network...
    I still have a mad crush on Bourdain.
