Animal, When I was a kid we had a girl move here, (to our school), from Michigan. She also called it pop. I haven?t thought of that in years.

This got me thinking about my granddad. He told me they called it pop or soda pop because to open it you would "pop" the wire sticking out of the top to "knock the cork inside"... Never actually seen one ...so I tried to look it up ... took awhile ... apparently it wasn't a cork, but a metal disc with a rubber seal and called a "Hutchenson stopper".
My kids were nuts for Ramune .. stoppered with a marble in kinda the same way ... turns out this is a version of a pop bottle popular in the UK and Australia back in the day. (Codd bottle)

    And do you remember calling the local store and asking if they had "pop in a can"?

"THE" can , Jimmy ... and never a call .. in person to the cashier :grin: .. get to see the look on their face that way, and sometimes learn new words as a kid. Prince Albert gag too ... buying tobacco as a 6 year old .. all you had to do was say your dad sent you to pick it up and you were golden .. never worked with beer, tho.

I wonder if Ace has realized yet that his "uncured bacon" is partially cured ... by being "seasoned" with celery juice powder and salt

Celery juice powder is high in nitrates ... if fermented with natural bacteria before drying, high in nitrites too .. and still considered a "seasoning" :wink:
gotta read them packages ...

It is always about concentration isn't it?  You need water and salt to live but you can drink and eat enough to kill you.

Cancer is more about odds and chance. You can increase or decrease your odds, but you can't escape the dice rolls. One guy might smoke a pack of cigs every day of his life and die at 90 in a car wreck. Another 25 year old might have never smoked and die of lung cancer. Both beat the odds, or won the lottery so to speak.
All we can do is place our bets according to what we want and are willing to give up, decide if the odds are worth it ... and roll 'em.
That goes for pretty much everything, not just cancer. Ultimately, death is the only life experience that's guaranteed.  :grin:

I would like to lodge an official complaint !  This site desperately needs the emoji with the halo above it !  :wink:

Animal,
If you use your iPhone, you can use all of the emojis on the phone. That is where I get them from.

Just be aware that many of Apple's emojis will not render on a PC.  The "normal" ones usually do, but newer ones usually don't.

I have a Mac PC and I do not doubt you Reagan. So far I've not had any trouble using emojis offered on my PC, but I do not seek those often..
The halo works fine from the PC or iPhone.. The one I posted above was from my phone. This one is from my PC...

What I mean is a computer running Windows.  Generally Apple computers aren't referred to as PCs.  On my laptop (which I use about half the time for reading on Beemaster and almost all the time for posting) I can see the halo emoji, although it's not rendering in color.  But oftentimes all I can see is a box.

The way I bring up emojis on my Mac PC by apple, is by simultaneously pressing 'option', 'command', and 'spacer bar'. From there is a wide assortment of emojis are offered ..

There, fixed it.  ... imo. ... started to say that I fully agreed with you but my internet went down and had time to think. (Xfinity sucks sometimes)
Maximizing time is fine if that's what you value most, but that's not the focus of everyone (not me, for sure). What I am for is for everyone to be well informed of risks so that they can make the best decisions  for themselves ... according to the things they value. That also requires clear and communicable definitions of things and processes to keep us honest with others and ourselves.

My generic hope for people is that they live their best life according to their own values without interfering with others living theirs. Personally, time has had little to with it in my life. Anyway, best to you.

Beemaster, I was just kidding, but thanks. I use cheap androids because I tend to destroy them ... currently on my third phone this year.  :embarassed:

I took it that you were kidding but the information might be helpful to someone in the future... 🤷🏻‍♂️ Can never tell. 😊
