    On the subject of cats, this Captain Marvel related hashtag is gold:

    Me (a non-US citizen): Dear FBI, are you suggesting that my communications should be decryptable by you at your leisure, even though I’m not a US citizen?

    If Europol insisted on getting blanket access to the communications of all US citizens as a matter of course, what would your response be?

      • DancinJack

      lol yes that’s what they’re “suggesting” (as if it’s not already happening via NSA/CIA)

      Even I am alarmed by this, and I am a U.S. citizen who does nothing illegal. No one should have god mode for the internet.

        I’m not alarmed. Of course police want a god-mode button to make their life easier.

        They shouldn’t get one. But hey, they wouldn’t be honest police officers if they weren’t saying that they wanted one.

    [url=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cereal#Production<]Wikipedia Cereal Production Numbers[/url<] Interesting that production of Oats has dropped to less than half of 1961 numbers, and Rye has remained stagnant. Love oats and rye bread.

    I just want to sit down and have a big bowl of corn. Not corn flakes, just corn. That photo made me hungry.

      • Srsly_Bro

      Raw or cooked?

        • derFunkenstein
        • 9 months ago

        Just like it is in the picture. I’ll crunch on it, like a horse.

        All the upvotes for a solid The Ugly One reference.

    “entirely unfettered space beyond the reach of law enforcement”

    Except that such spaces have always existed….

    What happened to the sixth grain? Did a cereal killer get to it?

      • Krogoth
      • 9 months ago

      A brewer/distiller took it to make some fine ales/spirits. 😉

      • drfish

      The sixth one was colza, no one wanted to market that as a breakfast food.

    • Krogoth

    Captain Crunch or bust!

      • Srsly_Bro

      No crunch berries?

        • Krogoth
        • 9 months ago

        Amateur, not “Oops! All Berries”?

        • derFunkenstein
        • 9 months ago

        The berries taste weird, but OG Cap’n Crunch is great.

      • DancinJack
      • 9 months ago

      maybe the wisest words Krogoth has ever spoken on this site.

      • derFunkenstein
      • 9 months ago

      Just upvoted Krogoth. What is my life?

        • Srsly_Bro

        Raw corn and capn crunch life?

          • derFunkenstein
          • 9 months ago

          I didn’t choose the life; the life chose me.

      • drfish
      • 9 months ago

      Yeah, what has the roof of my mouth ever done for me anyway?

        • DancinJack
        • 9 months ago

        seriously. a battlefield once you’re done with that bowl of sugar. it’s crazy how bad it tears up your mouth.

          • Krogoth
          • 9 months ago

          Those battle scars build character. If your gums and mouth aren’t bleeding after a bowl. You are doing it wrong.

            What’s for lunch, a bag of Funyuns?

        • DancinJack
