bought myself ice cream sandwiches today and my taste usually looks to sodium and msg especially. had one, two, maybe three... drowning out the sorrow in lactose sugar. my mouth is frozen but it has yet to stall my tears. i'll have one more chocolate vanilla sandwich.

The sad fact is...

.. that I use sugar because my daddy was a cocaine addict. Behaviorally, it made him an asshole who took loans out against the family home and nearly made us homeless.

Physically, he was very healthy--he only started becoming unhealthy once he stopped partying.

Oh well.

I like licorice allsorts, and I like those marshmallow candies. And hey, if all you have is icing sugar and creamcheese, well, why not mix them up?

It's not a good way to live, but, you know, at least when I die, it'll be alone, surrounded by tasty treats, and I won't cause anyone to have to revive me with narcan.

Let me put sugar in the gas of your vehicle and sand in the oil; you would say "Are you crazyZ" BUT its much easier to go to a mechanic for engine work than it is to go to the hospital for surgery or the burial grounds for a stiff party. Walk good Sisters & Brothers

Checked my bag of chips, a brand I hadn't tried before. It had MSG. Steering clear of that stuff now. I'm with you on the sugar and fat though.

you know msg is just as bad as sugar and salt right? it's no worse and it's in more things you're consuming than you know. it was perpetuated as "bad" along with yellow peril propaganda because when asians first immigrated to north america they were willing to take the jobs that others didn't want to do for less. "msg is bad" was designed to keep people from supporting asian restaurants, it's entirely racist but a lot of people don't know that. look it up, friend.

MSG is awesome :) it seems like the vast majority of people have no real adverse response to it, specifically. The ld50 (lethal dose) of MSG is 5 times higher than sodium/salt (in rats anyways, from what I've read -- poor rats...).

And the whole "Chinese restaurant syndrome" scare decades ago re MSG turned out to be... nocebo. They re-tested it iirc in double-blind conditions by giving people MSG without telling them so, and vice versa, and they didn't find any actual MSG-induced negative responses.

As with most things, not overdoing it is probably a good idea -- a human being can even die from drinking too much water, if it gets taken to extremes, but yeah. Seems harmless in my experience and from what I've looked at -- or not significantly different than say, a similar adjusted dosing of regular table salt.
