Crazy Sour Candy Face

Lately, I’ve been really craving sour candy but it seemed that none of the typical sour candies I found in stores were sour enough. I don’t know the reason I had this craving–maybe it means I have a vitamin c deficiency or something–but whatever the reason, it lead me on a quest for the most sour candy I could find.

I wanted to find some quantitative comparison of the various sour candies available. I thought it would be nice if there was some measure of sourness like the Scoville scale for peppers but it doesn’t seem there is. I wonder how hard it would be to develop one.

What I did find was this blog called ‘Sour Candy Reviews’. The blog is run by a woman named Robin and she also has a YouTube channel featuring video reviews of various sour candies. The video reviews are great to watch so if you get a chance search YouTube for sourcandyreviews and watch them.

One of the candies that Robin reviewed is called Toxic Waste. And she gave it a rating of Ultimate Sour so it seemed promising. I didn’t know where I could buy these around here so I went to the manufacturers site and found that they were available at Walgreens stores. I drove to the nearest Walgreens and they did have them so I picked up a package of Toxic Waste and I also picked up a package of Warheads candies which are another extreme sour candy.

I decided to document my experience in the following video. In this video, I try two different Toxic Waste flavors and then a lemon Warheads candy. If you are looking to see a crazy sour face, I would say the third one is really the money shot. It also seems that I’m not the only person who has done this, because there are quite a few videos of people doing the same thing in my related videos. So this could be a youtube phenomenon that hasn’t quite taken of yet.

Hope you enjoyed that.


Return of the Robots.

Perhaps Evil Spud Boy was too hasty in saying farewell to QRIO and Aibo. A lot of speculation on the internet indicates that Google is up too something and I think we know what that is.

First, we see that Google is teaming up with Volkswagon and nVidia to create a new vehicle navigation system. Also we’ve heard that Google is working on a new operating system. Additionally, we’ve heard they are going to make their own internet and global computer mind.

So it comes as no surprise to me that Google will be purchasing Sony’s former robotics division.


Molly, the Cat

Here is a picture of one of my cats, Molly. She was very small when this was taken–I called her Small-ie. Now that she is much bigger, I still call her Smallie.

Isn’t she cute?

She is a little slow. She was rescued from the streets, and the vet thinks her mother had distemper. Because of this, her motor skills aren’t as well developed as they should be. She doesn’t jump or walk that well. The vet said that since she is an indoor cat, she will be fine.

Sometimes when she jumps down she lands on her head. I think I should get her a helmet like this.

ABC News reports that William Shatner sold his kidney stone to for $25,000. The money is being donated to Habitat for Humanity.

It went to a great charity and all, but ewww.

Evil Spud Boy’s sources say that Shatner was later heard asking, “How much for a couple of Klingons?”

I’m an Excellent Blogger

Dad let’s me blog slow on the internet. But not on Monday, definitely not on Monday.

I guess you can’t put much faith in online quizzes…

After reading this post on Steve Pavlina’s blog, I decided I would take the Autism Quotient test myself. While I’m answering the questions, I’m thinking, “Hmmm I bet I won’t score very high at all.” So you can imagine my surprise when I’m done and my score is thirty.

Yes, thirty. Three-Zero
