I thought they had found that artificial sweetners had the same effect in regards to insulin production as sugar.

Just ordered a 24 pack of sweet, sweet Dr. Pepper from Gmarket.

I imagined #basedcowboyshirt feeling a sudden shudder down his spine as soon as I clicked 'buy now'  ;D

Ew. Unless it was Diet Dr. Pepper. Then... a little bit less ew. Maybe.

If sugar is literally poison, then what of aspartame?

Aspartame is literally poison, too. But! It's obviously the lesser of two evils. Love me some Diet Coke.

I'm actually with you on sugar. But artificial sweeteners?

They're basically harmless.

'The Evidence Supports Artificial Sweeteners Over Sugar'

Quote
The available evidence points to the fact that there appears to be a correlation between sugar consumption and health problems; none can be detected with artificial sweeteners.

I know, donovan, but Waygook.org user yirj17 really wanted me to say it was poison.

Aspartame is awesome because I can drink a sweet thing without eating sugar.

But yeah, it does taste funky. And it does not mix well with booze. Like, such a gnarly taste.

But otherwise, basically less poisonous than sugar in every way.

Maybe not literally, but basically yeah   :laugh:

It honestly does taste artificial though. Makes me want to ingest real sugar pronto to compensate.

I don't know if it's just me but the McDonald burgers don't taste the same here as they do back home. Maybe it's just because they're usually not as "fresh" or something, but they don't have the same flavor? Not really a big fan. But I still like the fries and morning sandwiches.

And I prefer BK over McD. So glad we're finally getting one that I can actually find around here.

In North America the meat in McDonalds and Burger King is way fresher and the burgers are usually 100% beef from the said country. Here they use Australian beef usually so it is frozen and shipped here so there is a frozen/old taste to the burgers here.

Some steaks and roasts here are also just glued meat especially at buffets. I got sick from eating glued meat from a supermarket here.

Planning a Christmas lesson and trying to decide on a video to show them. Thinking of "What's This?" from Nightmare Before Christmas (can't find any Korean subtitles but I don't think it's that big a deal, it's pretty fast paced anyway and very visual) along with a video of a light show.

So, Frozen vs Star Wars? I think Frozen might go well for elementary but I like the different camera shots in the Star Wars one, so maybe that one for middle?

No lies, I'm rabidly excited about Christmas, but I hope to never live next to people like this.

I vote Star Wars.

I agree, Frozen would be better for elementary and Star Wars for middle just because elementary kids will love the song while middle school kids would probably be more impressed with the better light timing of Star Wars.

I also showed the original with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra to my kids last year, went over very well.

I watched a kid carefully and systematically scribble out a girl's face in his textbook before finally moving on to complete the writing activity for today. I'm actually a little disturbed by the boy's very thorough and intense attention to detail in this endeavor, but I'm sure the textbook girl had it coming.

I think it's a gouda idea after having saved up some cheddar, just don't feel too bleu.

Maybe you can build a roque fort in the Garden of Edam. 

Have arty ideas in the future?

Computer at startup requires the Korean password. Thankfully the keyboard works in Korean for that one thing.

All the ferries got canceled yesterday and today so the students who left on a field trip earlier this week get an extended vacation. Lol
