    Chewing Grass reacted to Great Guy in Nazis - don't judge them by the actions of a few bad apples   
    I'd agree that most Muslims will become "western". However not all of them will... Hooky Hamza started his working life as a bouncer in strip clubs then he went onto supporting terrorism...
    There's countless cases of British born Muslims going to fight with IS. The actions of the good Muslims don't outweigh the actions of the bad ones....
    If Pakistani Muslims are fundamentally "OK" why is Pakistan such a corrupt shithole? If Somalians are fundamentally "OK" why is somalia such a violent shihole?

    Chewing Grass reacted to Sgt Hartman in Poor doors   
    Hmm, I'm really in two minds about this. 
    One half of me thinks it's quite a shitty thing to do, especially in a children's playground.
    The other half is the one that did actually spend two years living next door to social housing and what an absolute fucking shitshow that was. If that lot had been given access to 'nice areas' they would have summarily trashed them in very short order.
    Jury's out on this one, but not for long I think.

    Chewing Grass got a reaction from Ina in Aspartame, the next big scandal?   
    So Mr Oliver (the expert) left school at the age of sixteen with two GCSE qualifications in Art and Geology[4] and went on to attend Westminster Technical College now Westminster Kingsway College.[3] He then earned a City & Guilds National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in home economics.
    Thats it!
    Unsurprisingly he went to Newport Free Grammar School which wasn't free in monetary terms and is a product of BBC grooming.
    Oliver is severely Dyslexic, but strangely managed to write a book (or did the So-Called BBC write it for him) the Naked Chef.
    Oliver also participates in mental child abuse by naming his five kids  Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Buddy Bear Maurice  and River Rocket Blue Dallas (my favourite).
    The bloke sums up everything that's wrong with a country run by the metropolitan elite and their media drones.

    I have noticed that the women who drink diet drinks at work are either a) chronically overweight or b) loopy, there is only one bloke I see who drinks the stuff and he is the size of a barn door and wheezes when he breathes.
    I won't knowingly touch the stuff.

    Once the Saudis run out of oil they will be toast, sanctions/embargoes etc etc just preserve Iranian oil wealth for the future.

    Right, time for the maths.
    Aspartame is 200x sweeter than Sugar.   https://aspartame.org/what-is-it-as-a-sugar-substitute/
    Using Coke as an example it has 35g of sugar per 330ml can (fanta is half that)  https://www.coca-cola.co.uk/drinks/coca-cola/coca-cola
    Aspartame powder is well less than £10/kg (bulk price) https://www.made-in-china.com/price/aspartame-price.html
    Relative prices of other sweeteners to sugar.   http://www.sugar-and-sweetener-guide.com/sweetener-prices.html
    Sugar price is £320/tonne (bulk).  https://www.isosugar.org/prices.php
    Cost of sugar in 1 litre of Coke £0.032.
    Cost of Aspartame in Coke £0.005
    Sugar 32p / kg vs Aspartame equivalent of 5p i.e. at least 1/6th the price.
    Sugar price guide actually calculates Aspartame as 1/12 the equivalent sugar price so I am being conservative. http://www.sugar-and-sweetener-guide.com/sweetener-prices.html
    Aspartame - keeping prices down, inflation low but above all cash in the company coffers.

    Nope, 54 (5'10) and 12 stone, could get down to 11 stone with extreme exercise and eat what I want, don't drink a huge amount and ride a bike.
    Last week did 108 miles in one 8hr sesh across Wales, so I need sugar urgently sometimes, went into one small cafe and the only full sugar offering was a bottle of Fanta.
    Was pushing just under 10mph when I crashed (sugar) after the fanta was back up to 13+ mph until it wore off 4 miles later.

    Where I live they have all been taken over as am/pm dog toileting areas by militant dog activists which makes commuting by bike on them somewhat tedious.

    Chewing Grass reacted to Frank Hovis in Aspartame, the next big scandal?   
    It is however the "higher doses" point that is key. I agree that consuming a lot is bad for you but I don't regard small amounts as poisonous because it exists naturally and had always been eaten.
    If you were comparing the effects of drinking on a daily basis two litres of coke with sugar or two litres of diet coke then yes maybe the latter does you less harm; but either is a bad idea.
    I don't eat much sugar as I don't have a sweet tooth so sweets, chocolate and fizzy pop don't feature in my regular diet. If they did then I accept that a big reduction in the sugar content by adding a small amount of artificial sweetener would be healthier.
    In my naturally low sugar diet however I would prefer to avoid artificial sweeteners entirely.
    Today is brewing and baking day. I will be using one spoonful of sugar in my bread and one packet in my beer which will mostly ferment out.
    I don't wish to use some artificial chemical instead or see my perfectly reasonable usage of sugar start being taxed to the skies because Jamie Oliver thinks he knows best.

    Chewing Grass got a reaction from sarahbell in Where have all the insects gone - The Bug Splat Phenomenonon   
    Unusually last weekend whilst cycling down a cut-off back lane I passed a derelict former farm and a 100 foot long run of Buddleia (the butterfly bush) in full bloom adjacent open heathland, gloriously massive purple blooms with not a single butterfly on them.
    Have spent all week since keeping an eye out for Butterflies and haven't seen a single one even though the woman next door but one has a massive bush.
