Oz Linden often says that not a week goes by when he doesn't learn something new about Second Life.  I first heard him say this ...certainly more than 5 years ago... and it's true for me to this day. 

I think that Grumpity's post is a nice way of LL intoducing the next "exciting" perk for Premium members - that we will soon be able to pay our Premium fees in hamburgers. When is it due to start

Today I learned the importance of kerning.   4/1/18 ... There is something familiar about that date.  Hmmm Oh yes.  It's Easter!

Now now, that one is solid chocolate.. Growing up there was a neighbor who owned a pastry shop and she made jelly filled chocolate crucifixes. It was kind of awesome as a kid, then creepy as an adult... Bite of Jesus' head and get a splurt of jelly...

TIL this! Also, the dark chocolate makes more sense because Jesus wasn’t lily white.

I think some people (Jeny and Aislin) are talking about what in the Netherlands is called "drop". Licorice that comes in a variety of types but almost all, I believe, are both black and salty. Somewhere I read in some novel about a character with a passion for drop, and I thought it sounded interesting. I remembered seeing a place that advertised Dutch foods up in the Bay Area (as in San Francisco Bay), so I drove up there one Saturday. Sure enough,  there was a big long aisle of drop, all different. I told the clerk (a very beautiful woman somewhere between 35 and 45, I'd guess) that I wanted to try salted licorice and she picked out a bag for me.

I actually sort of liked it, although not enough to go buy more. I took the bag to work, where cookies and candy left on the coffee counter tends to vaporize quickly. I finally had to throw the bag in the trash after a week or so. One or two people were able to choke it down frowning, a few took one bite and spit it into the nearest wastebasket, gagging and yelling at me, and the rest were too chicken to try it. :-)

Here in the US, licorice “drops” are hard candy.
