I just wish you'd shut up about the chocolate fish.
I want one now and I don't think they sell 'em here any more. Damn you TA!

Hallelujah, I can buy them online.

The last one has the best price, but I'll have to check out the shipping costs to verify that. ... damn it, I'll be over it by the time they arrive. siiiiigh.

The ones we bought as kids were shorter and thicker than those and were smooth choccy. Probably taste the same though.

They do!

It's one thing the taste hasn't changed in 50 years, so you won't be disappointed.

I bought some in a supermarket last year. They were the ridgy didge made in NZ ones.

They were OK. I'm not sad they weren't a staple here. We have plenty of better munchies.

Here you go, Di.

No Coles stores around here that I know of, it's Woolies and IGA country. But thanks for the tip.
Yeah, what we ate as kids is probably lethal to adults.

South West Rocks has one. Also Toormina. A bit out of your normal range I guess

I go up to Toormina with Cuz's wife occasionally but to hit the Aldi store, not Coles.

I'll toss out a few math anomalies here to get people in the mood:

Here's a Feynman lecture for fun. He was able to see the significance of frames of reference and how they might yield contradictory data:

btw, none of these were the ones i was looking for...that's going to take some time.
I should have bookmarked them, but I didn't anticipate the need to pull them up in the future to solve a debate on whether there are or are not mathematical paradoxes that yield contradictory solutions.

qm, of course, is famous for this sort of thing, and it does tend to drive the materialist or pragmatist crazy.
We need concrete, non flexible answers! I demand a wave or a particle! The cat is dead! Noshing can be in 2 places at once!
And so forth.

The solid rules we insist upon become something of a self-fulfilling prophecy. It was necessary to open this up a bit to even begin to grasp the nature of reality.

I may be back with some more specific-to-the-argument stuff. Good chance no one will have the patience or endurance for it; understandable. It's nerdy stuff and can lead to head-ache.

I'm somewhat drenched in this stuff. Plus, altered states history.

I can well imagine that T.A. will reject all this evidence as not qualifying.
Meanwhile,
Continue with that on-topic conversation about chocolate bears.

(I'm not the only violator here. You people tend to do topic drift within 3 posts.)

Obama's a fag!
You're Hitler!

(I like to bet on the comment section of various you-tubes, as per how many comments in before someone calls you or Obama a fag.)

Interesting that in math-geek you-tubes, the comment section never devolves into that lowest common denominater.

T.A., sorry to hear you've been doing battle with viruses.
I do value you a lot, and can't afford to alienate you with fanciful an excess spewage here.
I can well imagine (and appreciate) how different our world views and approaches are...and I am definitely a fringe character.

Honestly, I think we all are.

No, I'll just reject it as YouTube.

I don't have time to watch videos, so just pluck one out and type it out for me. It's pretty simple - an algorithm that can produce different answers.

Well, to be fair, there are lots of mathematical problems that yield contradictory results. But not many of them are accurate accounts of the Cosmos.

In the end, we'll find that we misplaced a decimal point I expect.
You can lead 'em to knowledge, but you can't make 'em think.
