It is hard to limit myself to less than 4-5 Oreos, even when I strive to keep it to 3.
Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

I’m t-total I’m afraid (liver condition), but that does mean it’s always an acceptable time for a bourbon.

Tennessee whiskey is not bourbon.

Tennessee whiskey is to bourbon as Irish whisky is to Scotch.

Like when you try and pull the top layer off a Bourbon, so that you can eat the bit without cream and then the bit WITH cream, but the cream ends up half on each side?

I just had Oreos in frozen custard (TP4 have mercy) yesterday, which is the only acceptable form of Oreos.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

Yes, that is annoying. But I eat the side with the cream first. I let it dissolve in my mouth, and later simply crunch the dry side quickly when its turn comes.

Tried it when it came out, it's the candied watermelon flavor. Taste good, but don't think anyone has ever done faux watermelon right, the texture makes such big difference to the feel.

After a person's first Real experience,  they will never forget,  watermelon is Truth..

I don't think that anyone has ever done any faux fruit right.

Fruit is delicate and ephemeral, and just because you hit a few of the basic fundamental flavor notes it does not provide the essential "fruit" experience.

That said, I will sometimes get something like citrus or berry sherbet or hard candy, but it must have a distinct sourness to even begin to evoke enjoyment.

Oh yes, Oreos really are that great for a sheer pure decadent refined sugar/processed chocolate rush they can't be beat.

They crunch under your teeth, coat your tongue, and the glucose hits your bloodstream in nanoseconds.

Let's not forget,  that's not cream, that's pure chemically adulterated Hydrogenated Vegetable Fats.

You should try the Fuji Apple flavor of Clear American sparkling water. I don't know how they did it, but it tastes *exactly* like biting into an apple, down to the flavor of the skin as you bite through it into the flesh. It tastes as much, if not more, like a whole apple as apple juice itself. The other flavors are tasty too although not as accurate, but somehow the Fuji Apple flavor is spot-on.

In regards to fake fruit taste I actually have a soft spot for that fake banana flavor, like the banana Now And Laters. So many people dislike that flavor for some reason, same with grape.

To me it's that fake or dehydrated strawberry flavor, like strawberry Nesquick or Kit Kats where it's just off tasting like some chemical mixed with post-vomit milk. Strawberry has got to be fresh.
