@maxthemagnificent I quite like knocking back two or six daiquiries these days, I must admit!

@kfield: I went along fine until I got to the letter "D" and had the "Daiquiri" ice cream. Quite the most horrid thing I'd ever tasted!

It gets better after the 10th bowl :-)

I'm just not particularly fond of any food that wiggles! But a memory that really sticks with me is the summer I decided to try all the "50" Baskin Robbin flavors or whatever the number was. I went along fine until I got to the letter "D" and had the "Daiquiri" ice cream. Quite the most horrid thing I'd ever tasted!

@betajet: I can imagine someone having a coughing fit with your custard slices taking a quick belt of Vernor's as his last act on this mortal coil.

What a way to go -- not with a bang, but with a <what word should go here?>

PS I've had Vernor's -- as you say it does have a certain robust quality that is not for the faint of heart.

@KB3001: Hunger is a very powerful instinct though, we tend to forget this in our plentiful societies.

All joking aside -- I don't think most of us realize just how fortunate we are...

I've heard of "method acting".  Is this "method eating?"

Your cautionary tale about custard slices reminds me of Vernor's, which is a particularly strong USA ginger ale mostly sold in Michigan and Wisconsin.  If you're not used to Vernor's, the bubbles are so strong that it feels like you're suffocating.  I can imagine someone having a coughing fit with your custard slices taking a quick belt of Vernor's as his last act on this mortal coil.

Note: some people refer to Michigan and Wisconsin as part of the Midwest.  The proper term for the region is the "Upper US", as in "I come from the Upper US".  Be careful how you say that, especially if you have an Italian accent.

@Max, you might need several sessions indeed :-) Hunger is a very powerful instinct though, we tend to forget this in our plentiful societies.

@jstabler: In my opinion, fried green tomatoes, properly prepared, are quite good.

It's one of the things I want to try before I die (I just hope it isn't the thing that kills me :-)

@KB3001: Basically, you need to starve yourself first then prepare the problematic meal and you will erase any past bad memory.

Interesting. I wonder how long I would have to starve myself to wipe my memory clean of the school custard of despair -- I fear it would take a number of sessions.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
