Snapped this while on a walk today. I have a pretty good feeling that if this truck driver wants to leave this car isn’t blocking his way at all. The picture kind of sets up what would happen of one of these mini cars got in the way of a truck like this. I still see them on the highway and I think you foolish fool.
The people I work with have started to bring in candy and filling dishes around the shop over the past few weeks. Eventually they will guilt me into brining in candy to contribute to the fun. That made me think of what is the absolute worst and disgusting tasting candy I can recall ever eating. Growing up in a different era I think the government once thought candy was a basic food group. It was everywhere and not all of it was good.
1. Marshmallow Bananas
Sometimes called Circus Peanuts these awful tasting things are a banana flavoured candy which is akin to eating yellow styrofoam. Not sure what which one would be worse for you. They used to have these in little jars when I was a kid. Their upside, they would get so hard and stale they were perfect for throwing at the school bus.
2. Fruity Tootsie Rolls
You won’t get an argument out of me about the regular Tootsie Roll. I would eat them all day long but they crossed the line with the fruit flavoured version. They should have just left well enough alone.
3. Good and Plenty
Once a staple at the movie theatres but so was Keanu Reeves and that didn’t make either of them right. Black licorice disguised a candy. It’s just as bad as it sounds.
4. Allsorts Licorice
I have nightmares just thinking about having to eat one of these things. They are colourful and bright but they are black licorice. Pink and chocolate flavours mixed with black licorice. If there are sadistic aliens amongst us. They are most certainly responsible for this.
Including these as candy as they are as artificial and full of sugar as anything else called candy. Mmm, artificial flavoured coconut and cream. Not even if they were the last thing left after a nuclear war and trust me the would probably last.
We chewed a lot of this as kids but mostly on account of being dared to. What kid on their own free will would stuff their mouth with soap flavoured gum?
Poor teachers. Never complaining about how much they don’t make and always spending when they are out in public. I can see why a teacher would stoop to such a low as to steal from students. With all of that money that they aren’t stuffing into their mattress they have a lifestyle to live.
A student at Linden High School in Linden, Calif. hid in a gym locker to try and find out who had been stealing money and items from their back packs during gym class. Guess what? It wasn’t a poor jobless student. It was her gym teacher. Classic. In another another stunning display of ethics the principal of the school told the student to delete the video from the camera when confronted with the information.
Stay classy educators.
If you have been selling beer our of your Pepsi vending machine in Trindad, D.C. the police would like to see you. The Pepsi machine was sitting in front of an apartment building an selling malt liquor for at least a few months before it was found. Kids could get a can of malt liquor for just $3. Police have since disabled the illegal vending machine but nobody has come forth to claim it. Shocker.
Doesn’t sound like a bad deal though. They charge $3 for a bottle of tap water in machines around here.

My parents were never cool. They never let me drive a car at a high rate of speed on an icy road when I was eight years old. I had a bike, never a car. I don’t know what the big deal is. I encountered a dozen worse drivers in my travels today alone. All of them were older than eight. A couple of them much older.
I wish I have as much free time on my hands as Physicist David Neevel does. He’s dedicated a considerable amount of time and energy into creating a machine that will perfectly separate an the oreo cookie wafers from their creamy centres. I wasn’t overly impressed until the bevel part. That was the best.
