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?
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.

Don't remember any actors cards.
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.
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.

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

Ugh.

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'.

It was a BIG smear of brown blood after I hit it.

Malaria was not my worry. It was whatever it's previous meal might have had that was. This was inner city New Orleans.

To each his own.

Some like slimy, salty legumes... I guess.

Raw or roasted for me.

BTW...

Humans are animals, and have no problem digesting peanut shells.

Though boiling them might alleviate the need to extract splinters from one's gums.

I dunno.

Well, here in SA, cigarette companies have been prohibited to advertise in any way, shape or form. They may not even sponsor anything.
However, cigarette companies do not need advertisement. Why would they? When in school, the kids who smoke are perceived as badass. Who needs an ad, when one has peer pressure?
My high school used to accommodate teen smokers (with a note from the parents). I'm pretty sure campuses in my area have abandoned that. That might cut back on the peer pressure aspect somewhat.

....and cigarettes are outrageously expensive now.

It's a shame that kids can't see how growing up to be a healthy, addiction-free adult is pretty bad-ass.

Lol, I remember when I was a kid, I used to buy those candy cigarettes and "puff" em in front of the school. I felt like a bad-ass. I have a feeling that if my kids did it today, they'd get a dirty rep, not a good one.
That's out here, anyway. What's it like there?

I bet you only eat fried okra.

Okra you can suck up your nose is the tastiest. Steamed real well is the only way.

Raw is the only way to eat oysters. But you have to chew them. Bet you don't eat those raw, either.

Soft mushy boiled peanuts are good. Wilkes was good about those.

RR could have (still can) put the cash spent on cigs toward his kids' college.

Around here (in central NC) a pack costs around $5.

Quitting a pack-a-day habit would retain $1,825 a year... assuming one doesn't purchase by the carton.

He'll deny this... but, RR doesn't think his kids are worth it.
