Annoying English phrase: "going forward". It seems to have spread like a virus in corporate talk.

Fix: s/going forward//g

Is anyone else bothered by these two words: "Premium" and "clientele"
They just stick out to me as pretentious and obnoxious examples of the business-world vernacular.

Antza2 sent me a package for my birthday and thought I should share it with everyone.

The last couple of days I have been trying out all the stuff Antza sent. Here are my thoughts

Hartwall Limonadi Apple


Teho Apple energy drink


RuisSipsi chips


Fazer chocolate


Euro Shopper Energy Drink


Xylitol Jenkki Spearmint gum


Fazer Missä X


Fazer Marianne Mint Chocolates


Suckers. Angry Bird and Missä X


Vita Nova


Kurko Sombrero long Drink


Tyrkisk Peber


Sisu Raikas


Super Salmiakki


Apteekin Salmiakki


Sisu Salmiakki Gum


Tar Candy


Salmiakki Chocolate


Tar Soda


Overall I would give this experience Vomit/10. It was totally worth it and I plan to send some stuff to Antza soon, hopefully he will post about it here as well.

Edit:

I forgot to post about one of the items. The reindeer meat, it basically tasted like big pepperoni and was pretty good.

I think Antza sent me this with the intention of killing me. I put one of the solid unbroken ones in my mouth and was immediately greeted with something that felt like burning. My mouth went into convulsions and then it cracked in two and I was forced to spit it out. Shortly after this my tongue went numb. Will definitely be sharing this with coworkers and family because they deserve to suffer as well.

You're exaggerating. These are ok if you have a soar throat. It wont cure it, but it might ease the soreness for a short while. These sweets also have another popular use, which the forum rules prevent me from going into.

DoctorOfSpace, you should try some Marabou chocolate wink There are several versions but this one is the most common (and the best!).






Love Space Engine!

I have one in my mouth right now! Guess you get used to these after a while.

Literally like Red Bull only it has a much stronger flavor, smells nicer, and tastes much better. i wish they sold this stuff in the US. Anyone who likes Red Bull needs to get a can of this stuff.


Heh, in Finland, all the 11-16 year old kids buy and drink this stuff all the time, even though you have to be 15 to buy it.

In Finland, salmiakki is basically a part of the food pyramid it's so common.
It's fun seeing foreigners trying it. For me, it's delicious.
Actually, I've never seen any finn who didn't like salmiakki. biggrin
