Do you remember the "real people" chevorlet advertisements? Real people thought a chevy Malibu was an Audi. These are the same people that will lick a rancid scrotum in a blind taste test and choose it over steak.

Well, it’s kind of the same thing.

An impossible patty could replace most fast food burgers and nobody would notice.

Take the Audi and Chevy badges off and they’re both still on a flatbed...

Aside from dumb **** I did, my Subaru’s have been good to me. Love our Leaf, it’s just perfect for what it is.


My Chrysler OTOH needs another steering rack.


Edit: at least the Chrysler is cheap to fix.

Me at the parts store “I’m sorry, how much? Ok, what’s your most expensive pad? $39.95? Sold”

The Impossible Whopper was about as edible as the original. I'm looking forward to the second and third generation products, though.

Also, these were pretty bland. Some spice, but very little chile limon flavor.

I grew some German radishes for the first time this year. Tried one yesterday. I imagine it would be similar to trying to eat the acid that accumulates on the top of an old battery post if one were to try and eat it.

C/N - It tasted like burning. I'm hoping as they mature they get better tasting.

Lies, yore glass transmission broke the same time the subaru blew its head gaskets. It's just sitting in your back yard next to the leaf since its batteries caught fire burning down everything with in 100ft of it just like every other litheium battery ever.

No matter how tempted you might be, don’t do it! They smell bad, taste bad and you’ll taste the flavor for hours afterwards.

You’ve. Been. Warned.

I am officially nominating seafood bacon Mac n cheese.

Have ordered it from a couple different places now, and in my eyes is the undisputed champ of looking effing amazing in theory, but failing in practice.

Yeah, I don’t get it. I want sweetened tea. Not syrup. I don’t need diabetes by the time I exit the parking lot

That's how tea is in the south. I used to like it, but several years ago I cut sugar from my diet. Now if I try to drink swayt tay (southern phoenetics) I almost gag because of how sweet and syrupy it is. Like drinking straight corn syrup.

Back when I lived in Savannah my friend's wife made her own sweet tea. They bought multiple 5 pound bags of sugar a month just making tea for 4 people.

Yeah I tried it once and threw up in my mouth a little. It's so sugary I have no words. You could dump a sugar packet into your mouth and just swish it around and somehow that would be less sweet than sweet tea.

No radish will ever taste like anything other than bitter and sour burning. Slicing thin and covering in salt for a day will make them taste more like salt, and therefore edible. Radishes are the worst plant humans ever decided they should try to eat. Yes, durian is in that pool. I'm pretty sure radishes were the base flavor for that bittering agent they sprayed Switch games with.

Have you had 7-11 sweet tea?

That is not how tea is in the South. This **** is literally syrup with tea flavoring added. Just horrible. Maybe things have changed in the last 20 years, but I suspect proper sweet tea and a good pecan pie will outlive racism.

I'm not a big fan of iced tea but when I have had sweet tea here, it's sweet but not overtly so, nor is it syrupy.

Where is here?

Can you order an iced tea and get what you want, or do you need to specify sweet tea?
