Double Bubble was my favorite bubblegum. Big cylindrical chunk that tasted better and was softer. One of those brands was something like 2 for a penny. May have been the Double Bubble.
Gee, its gets hard remembering.
Maybe that was Joe Palooka bubble gum.

But I did love beer barrel rolls and the peanut butter logs. Horehound drops kept in the refrigerator went real quick.

But canned boiled peanuts, Wilke's back then, were my favorite snack. I preferred the Peanut Patch brand that came out later, though. Eating a can of them parked in front of the TV was heaven.

Double Bubble >>> made by 'Fleer'.

From the entrance to parents' neighborhood, at the hill top... one can see a large, white house just visible through the woods... a mile or so away.

It's the former 'Fleer Mansion'.

I've got a better idea. Why doesn't even one non believer clearly define the parameters of infinite space? After all, you have cast down the gauntlet of everything requiring scientific proof. Under the topic creator's implication, we "could" be living in the Matrix.

In essence your belief is since we are here we just move forward and don't concern ourselves with just how we get here? We make our own way independent of the greater universe?

So what creates this great unifier of mankind, this gluing his brain together to make a focused common thought as he embarks down such a path?

I wouldn't be soooo sure about my maturity in the 4th grade. I started school a year early... something my parents did with hopes that it would build character in the years to follow.

In my 40s and still working at it.

In any case...

I wasn't the one hanging out in the playground, suckin' on candy cigarettes, thinking he was a 'bad-ass'.

Science is based on observation not belief. There's no "unifier of mankind". When you consider the vastness of the universe, it's ridiculous that the inhabitants of this planet are always at war. Religion is synonymous with ignorance and violence.

Yes, Bazooka was a little pink rectangular gum for a penny, and Double Bubble was a huge cylinder for a nickel, I think. Sometimes I broke off the segments of the cylinder one by one, and ended up chewing the WHOLE THING at once.

Boiled peanuts, fresh, are a huge deal even today, in Florida.

Ugh.

Every truck stop from top to bottom, left coast and right, and everywhere in between, has 'em.

My brother-in-law eats 'em whole... shells and all.

You have to work at getting bit fatally by a coral snake. They don't have fangs, they have to chew through the skin. But you let them reach the blood supply and you will be in bad shape.
You believe in the strangest things, Dave. Of course coral snakes have fangs. They're just short ones.
I lived in Florida for 46 years before I saw my first coral snake. They are bigger in life than in photos. They are pretty secretive critters, except during mating season, then they wander off everywhere. I almost stepped on one with my sandals on in the back yard during that season. It crossed my path diagonally from behind and to the left. I just caught my foot before stepping on it. Had another almost like that a couple of days later walking down the road. It passed less than two feet in front of me.
Wow! Nice. I had a fer de lance slither through my legs. That was fun.
You mentioned mosquitoes being more dangerous than lions earlier. The scariest moment of my life was killing a big fat blood filled mosquito that had just bit me on a crowded city bus in downtown New Orleans.
I can totally understand that sentiment.

If the back legs go diagonally up, that is a sign they may be a malaria vector (the spp that carries it have legs that work like this - not all that do can carry malaria, though).

I preferred the canned variety. They were softer and tastier from setting in solution so long. Saltier. Great for cleaning teeth. You opened the shell with your teeth then sucked and tongued the peanuts out.

I didn't eat the shells. Only animals can eat the peanut shells.

"Biled" peanuts is what they are called.

Good eatin'.
