So I was first introduced to this candy by Derek. At first I thought it was a tangerine flavored mint, but boy was I wrong. Remember Super Cola or Super Lemon back in the elementary school days? Well, these Altoids Tangerine Sours are a bit like that. Speaking of which? What did happen to Super Colan and Super Lemon? I tried searching for them in Chinese supermarkets back in Monterey Park, but they were nowhere to be found. Anyway, back to the subject. These tangerine sours have a sour white coating (not as sour as Super Colas or Super Lemons though) followed by a sweet tangerine fruit drop. I’m addicted to these guys! I practically finished 1/2 of Derek’s can.
I was at Costco yesterday and saw these guys there. They were a pack of 6 for $6.39. Altoids.com sells 4 of them for $7.96. Yep, I grabbed a pack and I’ve been popping them into my mouth all night.
Beckham baffled by son’s homework – Superstar David Beckham, whose mental agility has been questioned before in the media, has said his six-year-old son’s maths homework leaves him baffled. 6 years old… Isn’t that like 1st or 2nd grade? So like add/subtract, right? I don’t think multiplication/division was introduced till 3rd grade, though my father had me memorized the times table by 1st grade.
Distillery to Revive 184-Proof Whisky – The Bruichladdich distillery on the Isle of Islay, off Scotland’s west coast, is producing the quadruple-distilled 184-proof — or 92 percent alcohol — spirit “purely for fun,” managing director Mark Reynier said. A little note for you alcoholics *cough* I mean alcohol enthusiasts out there. Funny thing I read an a comic strip a few days ago showing a friend being worried his friend was addicted to beer. The friend assured him that he wasn’t addicted to beer, but it was the beer that was addicted to him. Then he goes, “Oh no! Here it comes again.” as he slowly tilts the bottle into his mouth.
China opens Panda ‘kindergarten’ – The kid pandas are so cute! Definitely check out the video of this Panda playschool.
Refund Please – Got this site from AT Hot Deals. There are a number of online retailers that offer to credit buyers back cash on past purchases. For instance, if the product you purchased at Amazon.com within the last 30 days has dropped in price they will credit you back the difference. The interface is pretty simple to use. You type in the item ID, price, purchase date, and your email and they’ll email you if the item drops below your purchase price within 30 days. Only thing they’re missng at the moment is to go in and edit the list. But I guess this system does not have to deal with storing user accounts and passwords.
‘Maid’ in heaven for geeks (from Artemyst) – I posted the article to this awhile ago, but now they a video of what it’s like to be in a “Maid Cafe”. CNN’s Atika Shubert visits a trendy ‘Maid Cafe’ in Japan where geeks are catered to and cartoon characters rule.
Just watched this trailer: The Sentinel. All I’ve got to say is that it’s basically 24, but Jack Bauer isn’t the federal agent being chased, he’s the one chasing Michael Douglas who’s being suspected for treason. If 24 has any relevance in this movie, I’m guessing what would happen would be both Jack Bauer and Michael Douglas were in this together to get through to some terrorists. Hahahaha.
