Things to Ponder

I heard General Mills was slowly but surely going to eliminate that from their food. It is a problem.

Welcome back BTW. It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve seen you on the forums. :slight_smile:

thanks, it was interesting to drop by again. Wasn’t sure what to expect, definately not inphy having global mod status…

Regardless of the health benefits or concerns, stuff with sugar always taste better than the stuff that uses HFCS. Seriously, try Mexican Coca-Cola. It’s awesome!


#344

I wonder though. If the cola companies, candy companies, and bakeries reduced the amount of sugar in their products by 5% each year for 6 years, will America notice that the sugar level was dropped by 30%? And how much sugar will that save, and if converted to ethanol how much gas could we make instead?


#345

That would be a great start and it would be noticeable. When I think confectioners sugar, I think heart suicide. The amount of sugar we take into our bodies with baked goods is off the charts just with store bought cakes alone. There is no reason why anybody in their right mind shouldn’t at least drop it by 5% annually.

How can there be multiple Final Fantasies?


#346

Many atime has that been asked, and many atime I have given up on it. :stuck_out_tongue:


#347

Well it is titled “Final Fantasy”, so anything - even multiple sequels to a final - should be possible. :blink:

Because “Final Fantasy” is the title of the game series, in which each game (except for direct sequels ie: X-2, and XIII-2) takes place in a different universe with a different story, with different characters. So each Final Fantasy, is just the Final Fantasy for that particular universe, an the direct sequels are just continuations of the same Fantasy because it was too long to tell the story with just one game… Yeah, that sounds about right.


I was asked this earlier, and I started thinking about it a little…
Hypothetically, if something like a solar flare killed the entire world population… would it really matter? Is anyone around to actually care?


#349

I’m sure Q would. :dry:

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. :stuck_out_tongue:

Do blind Eskimos have seeing -eye sled dogs?


#352

Now I don’t mean to start a debate or anything, this is a rhetorical question. If you want to answer, pm me.

If a person grew up in a place where there was no education, no real teachings, cave man like life style, they would try to explain his/her world by some means. Thus religion came about. People are not born atheist, they are born wanting to know what influences them. Atheism is taught by teachings that there is no outside influence in a persons life. Thus is it a doctrine?

If the Constitution says the government cannot support one doctrine over another, does that not mean the government should not support Atheism over religious doctrines?

Do you need a silencer if you are gonna shoot a mime?


#355

Well… technically they’re called suppressors. :stuck_out_tongue:

And even with a suppressor, a gun will always make a sound. And that sound may still be louder than the sound the mime makes when you shoot it… :silly:

Also, why are we shooting a mime? What did the mime do to us that we need to shoot them?


#356

They can’t keep their hands off me. :smiley:

After eating, do amphibians have to wait one hour before getting out of the water?


#357

I thought it would be fun to bring this back to life.

If you can’t drink and drive, why do you need a driver’s license to buy liquor, and why do bars have parking lots?


#358

Snowy, thanks for bring this back.

Something that can’t go on forever, won’t.
Debt that can’t be repaid, won’t be.
Promises that can’t be honored, won’t be.


#359

I agree, welcome back thread!


#360

I have a question that I’ve always wanted to know the answer to!

How did the English accent transform into the various American accents in such a relatively short amount of time? When and how did this happen?

I would actually be rather delighted if someone did know this.
