Are we sure we don't want to consider the rabbit? In a photo ladidada posted, that rabbit had the Devil's Eyes...

On reflection, the answer to What's a car snort? would probably be... fuel.

So, real propane cooking, anyone? :tongue:

propane? I love CH3CH2CH3! (I remembered something from chemistry, YAY!)
I deserve a cookie for that!

I'm starting to notice Krss is a tad bit  of a tinsy bitsy animal <3er, heh. :-D Are you a vegetarian, Krss? Here's a fun story for you though:

My friend and I made a bet who could go the longest without eating meat (20 months later...) I win! I then went and ate a fried fish sandwich that same day...heh but, wow, was I really unprepared for that. I actually gained 10 pounds from eating pastas constantly and I didn't balance my diet right and really screwed up my digestive system for a while from a B-12, B-6 vitamin deficiency. But who, cares I won! The biggest benefit I got though was learning to love veggies I didn't like before including brussel sprouts, tomatoes of all things, squash, and cabbage.

Moral: I win!

Funny thing: I'm a vegetarian too! But guys... that rabbit! Have you seen his malevolent eyes? ...

*covers himself with a blanket*

I'm afraid of it...

Well, you seem to be doing well - the right amount of sunlight and water, I presume, and good soil... ;P

Aah, but I think that you're missing two things:

Firstly, "snort" implies drug use, rather than food intake.  So, what might be a drug to a car?  Perhaps some particularly exotic and powerful fuel?  Jet fuel, perhaps?

Secondly, we're to use basic car snort, not just any car snort.  Of course, jet fuel is hardly basic, I believe, so perhaps we want some unrefined version...

Either way, it sho9uld make the sacrificial flames leap higher, so I'm in favour... *grin*

Alternatively, it could be that we're looking for something that cars are not intended to run on, or otherwise utilise, and which makes them act unusually.  Here, I'm afraid, I think that my knowledge of cars breaks down. :hmm:

Just as long as we get to sacrifice something or someone... :asthanos:

Let's throw in everything suggested so far! On the other hand, do forum rules frown upon this sort of thing? :angel:

If you really want to get your car high and give it a good snort, I suggest a mixture of:

Nitro, acetone, jet fuel, and flubber...as evident in the movie. Personally, I would love to add acetone to my car but I'm afraid of my car exploding. :sad: But if you hate waiting at red lights, I recommend adding strong magnets to the bottom of your car as light changes are provoked by magnets under the road...the stronger the magnet the quicker it will change.:biggrin:

As to the vegetarians,

I applaud your efforts, it's pretty annoying going out to eat to a restaurant and having 2 or 3 options (especially in the states since most are chain restaurants...) But, then again, they have Sweet Melissa's which is an awesome vegetarian chain restaurant! That and Bocca and Morningstar... I mean come on, it's really not that hard to be a vegetarian in these days.

However, I very much oppose people who eat organics (and I have a degree in agriculture now) since these people do not understand what organic means. (I will not be a doodiehead and start an argument) However, if you are stuck on buying organics, I highly HIGHLY recommend you only buy organics with not only the USDA sticker but California sticker as well (as their guidelines are much stricter than the USDA's). NEVER, EVER buy organics from foreign countries, especially third world. When they enter the U.S. (not sure for europe), they do not have to pass USDA definitions of organics, just there native countries...which for a lot or just a scam to sell their non-organics at premium organic prices. Part of my field studies in Mexico was evaluating organic farms there and there are no restrooms, they just "relieve their bowels" right there in the field and on the food, and are allowed to use certain man-made fertilizers/pesticides that are not organic. You want to know why that tomato/jalapeno scare hit the U.S. this year? Please refer to my "relieve the bowels" statement above.

I highly recommend instead of buying organic, buy local. It's fresher, much better tasting, and does much more for saving the environment than buying organic (Organic farming takes extremes amount of labor in the form of gasoline powered equipment). If you have ever head a grapefruit straight from the tree or a heirloom tomato you'll know how much better fresh food is, neither have that tart or sourness associated with store bought ones.

Hope I didn't make anyone all >_< :sad:

Glad I do not have a car to test this on. Exploding cars is one of the few things I am allergic to. Except in Gray Matter, if it comes to that.

I think organic standards and what that means varies greatly from one country to another. Over here in Finland organic and local is a reliable indicator of quality and healthiness. Unfortunately that is probably not true everywhere.

I just checked the forum netiquette, and look what I found:

"Sacrifices must be held on January the 1st. Thou shan't sacrifice the users with more than a hundred posts"

:angel:

According to the rules, if I'm a vegetable you can't sacrifice me.:tongue:


Thanks for explaining organic, ladidada. I'm confused on these labels. I'm not seeking organic foods specifically, just foods that aren't meat. :smile:

It's much easier to be veggie in the US than in Europe, that's for sure, because of more food choice and less peer pressure.


AndreaDraco, someone wrote that forum netiquette while snorting basic car propane. :erm:


How about instead of sacrificing a cabrit (avec ou sans cor) we do what GK did and just destroy the avatar? :asthanos:

Must depend on which parts of US or Europe, as my admittedly secondhand impression has been the reverse. :smile:

*looks forward to the sacrifice*

*looks at own post count*

*no longer looks forward to the sacrifice*

Heh, now I admit my hypocrisy and inform I do <3 organic food

Organic labels - Any person can put a sticker on a fruit that says "ORGANIC" even if they use fertilizers and pesticides and insecticides and fungicides and growth hormones. However, to be true organic, they must have a certified organic inspector come and inspect the entire farming process and do test to certified they are organic. If they pass they get an USDA CERTIFIED organic stickers which means...it actually is organic. If you see just organic...it means pretty much they failed to pass USDA organic and are technically scamming you. (This is only true in grocery stores. Local farmers will grow organic and just sell to the local market and not pay to become certified organic. It cost to do so.) However California organic certified has even stricter guidelines than USDA so they are even MORE organic.

Sacrificing - I'm sure once Thaumaturge finishes the sacrifice, he'll get onto working with David Stiles on recovering your life via gray matter experiments.:biggrin:
