That sums it up. I'll remember to say that to the next "activist" that comes asking for a donation.

Since Obamania got all these brats into politics, the college PC Charity mobs have tripled in size.

I won't go into details, but they know me well enough to stay out of my way.

I generally look at them and say "No." Then I walk away or turn my head. Problem solved.

So far they are just ASKING. Wait until they start DEMANDING.

One of the reasons I left my native country is I was tired people knocking at my door on Sunday mornings to tell me I HAD to do "voluntary work" (euphemism for mandatory + unpaid) "for the good of the community".

Back then I expected America was the last place in the world where that could happen. I'm not so sure now.

I have some in My pantries in case of EMG. (EMG ONLY!)

Warlock Callier: I love that fake assed powdered orange shit! I used to to just eat that shit out of the packet. Sometimes I would open TWO boxes and make the mac from ONE box and save the other mac for later (put butter on it) and use BOTH cheese like substance packets in ONE portion of mac and cheese. I would put a whole stick of butter (margarine back then as We couldn't afford real butter) and mix that shit up nice and thick.

YUM!

I was never approached by beggars while I was in college. Probably because I looked like I’d just rolled out of my own cardboard home being such a ragamuffin and I had a pronounced “jingle” walk. If it was not change for the bus, it was change for my 5000 calorie 99 cent meal.

The only thing that did make my ears go back was being hollered at by protesters outside of hospitals and clinics. Not something necessarily associated solely with college but having someone scream (ridiculously inaccurate) epithets 0.2 millimeters away from the tip of my nose was one of the most distinctly unpleasant experiences I can remember.

AHHH YES!

A Flight Attendants (and Pilots) DREAM.

TASTYKAKES!

I cannot get them here. I could only find them in PA. I actually liked the carrot cakes and spiced cake treats most.

I miss those damned things. I'm going to either A) Go order some online and have them express shipped here, or B) Go off into a corner and cry over the love lost between TastyKakes and I. (We had a great relationship you see).

CHEAP IS GOOD when you first start out with little or no money in your pockets. Those damned little gems saved My life (more than once).

Hmmm...never had Tastycakes. They look really sugary. Wonder if they're available in Canada.


We have our own sugar, flour and food colouring "cakes" sold at the Dollarama. I think they're called "twankies" or something. Can't beat expired food in plastic wrap for pennies a piece.

In my undergrad days, my friends and I would go to the local corner store every Sunday, and buy cases of Vachon cakes that were marked down on account of having been knocked around during shipping. So cheap, so sugary, omnomnom!!

I took one look at that place during my college search yea so many years ago, smelled the weed, saw the giant butcher paper banners for every cause under the sun ringing the walls of the student center, and ran.

How many more years do you have left to serve, if I can ask?

Oh, and I love Eve's idea of hitting them up for YOUR cause, as well as Hester Moffet's idea that you should just guilt-trip them by saying your precious money is going to a poor starving Ethiopian, and don't they want HIM to eat?

Honestly, if it were me, I'd just tell people "No," and if they really started to get annoying, I'd buy more Easy Mac, Ramen, and boxed foods to make myself in my own dorm, and/or I'd go to eat at the cafeteria outside of peak hours. But, I'm boring that way wink.

Now, if I wanted to get my troll on, I'd do one or both of two things:

1) I'd argue with these people about the political and social implications of these hand-outs---how hand-outs make people dependent on the Man, how they result in a decrease in self-efficacy and self-esteem, and how they convey our lack of faith in the other person's ability to be or become an autonomous adult. At least seeing people stammer, stutter, and have to re-collect their bearings would be hilarious.

2) I'd turn their own rhetoric against them, and play a "more liberal-and-principled-than-thou" game. Sniffing your money is going to Ethiopia or to inner-city rape victims is one way to play this game. Suggesting that people are practicing paternalism or colonialism, or are furthering the cause of globalization, patriarchy, or some variety of oppression by giving others hand-outs, is another. People often freak out when they think they're dealing with someone even more ideologically hardcore than they are.

This thread has become a discussion of snacky-cakes!

Ramen Noodles,Pork Rinds,Twinkies,Mac N Cheese (I got the blue box blues).

As to the cereal is a meal too comment: When I was younger, and still on some days today (even though milk is 4.00 a gallon here) I could eat cereal for 4 square meals a day! Ummmm Cocoa Pebbles, Raisin Bran, Crispix.

They and the activists are nutritional and intellectual equivalents.

I have never heard of 'Twankies' but in the States We do have the Hostess bakery which makes "Twinkies".

This is a golden sponge cake with three holes on the bottom which are pumped with some type of white creme filling.

I am told that these cakes can last through an atomic blast and that all though they are stamped with a shelf life.....they have enough preservatives inside them to last FOREVER.

Actually....Scientific experiment coming up. I have some Twinkies hidden away that I had forgotten about until this thread. I have had them for nearly a year...... I would like to open one and see if it feels the same... I may even take a bite or at the very least dig My finger into one of those holes (HEY NOW!) and see what the inside taste like...

Stop it you PERVERTS! This IS FOR SCIENCE!
