In other words, you guys don't use it for yourselves but are allowed to put it in the crap you export to us. Right? :p

I think a lot of EU people are proud of the fact that HFCS is not commonly used in Europe, so they present it as "it's banned over here because we're just so health conscious." Fact is they use so much of the stuff as sweetener over here because of political reasons, not health.
Pretty much yes. We protect our own market since we don't produce corn, but we do produce sugar beet.

A propane grill (Yes, I know it's just a gas stove that got lost on it's way to the kitchen :rolleyes:) and the greatest set of grill tools known to man.




And to answer your next question, yes. They do have plastic screwdriver handles.



And to answer your next question, no. I did not form those burgers. If I had, I would have known not to make them 1/3 the size of the buns, and to indent the middle so they didn't turn into little beefy doughnut holes. Also, I would have known to let the grill preheat longer to really get some good grill marks.

This saturday as I was fortunately visiting nicjasno, my hometown was hit with massive hail and if I had been home, my car would now quite possibly be not as pretty as it is. <_<

So I've just ordered an anti-hail cover. It's 4mm thick and made from a spongy material to absorb the hail.

I've used putting on my windshield cover as a measure against ice very effectively. Every time I put it on, there is no ice - on any car. Every time I leave it off, there is ice everywhere.

It's a generic cover! I'm not paying 2x as much for a special cut with 4 rings on it. :p
