Imagine how efficient shit would be!

The cherry cobbler yogurt I'm eating right now tastes more like Nyquil.
I'm not a fan of most foo-foo flavored foods.

See the problem here is that you're not some dieting woman desperate to eat "dessert."

To even suggest such a thing is outrageous: I would never wear jeans like that!

I had a Rock Star energy drink (not my usual) that tasted like Nyquil. It was worth it for its absurd caffeine content though.

Tomatoes are really only ripe about at least a week or so after that point, depending on the variety.)

And that's true too.

I guess I didn't add enough color.

When I was a kid every local supermarket had really good tomatoes (and peaches). You never see a decent tomato in a regular supermarket anymore, regardless of season. You need to go out of your way for it. Its a joke. This is why commercial farming sucks. Have you noticed how bad these tomatoes are? They look perfect and taste like shit.

I get the point about winter tomatoes, but WTF, a regular supermarket can't buy from a local grower mid summer?

Peaches are even worse. They're like baseballs.

And when did apples start to taste like water? Why do I need to leave my avocados out for a week? And how did strawberries 'evolve' this thick ass skin on them now when they used to just fall apart in your mouth with the tiniest bit of pressure?

Where's the outrage?

Earbuds are the bane of my existence. Dynamics in music recording sucks now. Because of earbuds recording engineers compress music to absolute death so it sounds passable thru them.

Following my boxing session yesterday my fingers hurt like shit. Also last two times I've gone and done my jump rope I've gotten really horrible stitches in my stomach to where I have to stop. But not like, when I'm actually working hard in the gym.

Also, I can't stay up. At all. I eat healthily, get exercise etc but when my brain realizes I am home it just shuts down and I have to go to sleep and I can't fight it. So usually I take a 15 minute nap and I'm fine. Well sometimes it changes from nap to sleep. Last night I was falling asleep at 7. I get 8 hours of sleep every night too. It really bothers me that I just can't stay awake like a regular person.

Well, as long as it is not an advertising firm. teacha.gif

For whatever reason I have noticed the same with pears. I remember some mind blowingly good pears when I was a child. Now they go from rock hard to rotten over a seemingly 30 second period.

This makes no sense. I mean, nothing in this post is true either factually or scientifically.

Re: food in most American supermarkets nowadays. Yeah, it sucks. I think there was a discussion about it on SF some time ago. A lot of it isn't due to commercial farming per se but more so with the rise of national food distributors and megamarts.
