Kellog's Corn Pops cereal in the States is very different than the Corn Pops cereal made in Canada, even though they're both the same brand made by the same company. In Canada the cereal is sphere-shaped that are uniform in shape and is basically a sweetened version of Kix (Which I've also eaten). Corn Pops in the US is sweetened puffed grains that come in irregular shapes. The States version looks better to me for some reason. It looks lighter and fluffier, like popcorn.

Saudi Arabia consumes 263 litres of water per capita per day.
Canadians currently use an average of 329 litres of water per person, per day — second only to the United States in the developed world. Americans were noted as using 378 litres per person, per day.

I learned that its possible that the baby boomers + our parents where exposed to unhealthy amounts of lead. Leaded gasoline was not removed from gas until 1995 and lead poisoning can be very slow over time...so for many of us its possible grandpa, grandma and even our parents were damaged mentally and even physically by lead.

If you wanna blow your mind a little then here is a good link: https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/945 ... n-saved-it

Its freaking crazy to think about, also rome might of had its downfall due to lead insanity also mentioned in the article.

And first the oil companies lied about the lead additives they were putting in, saying it wasn't harmful...so based on that its just another reason not to trust them when they imply the oil itself is doing no real environmental damage. They lied about lead so why wouldn't they be lying about Co2?

I thought kix was sweetened already, I remember that was really the only cereal marketed to kids that I liked. The things like fruit loops and cocoa puffs I always thought were too sweet but I do recalll kix being kind of sweet as well so I have to imagine it was also sweetened.

That said if you're thinking of the same states ones that I am thinking of, those usually are not sweetened they have the puffed grains but if you want it sweet you'd have to add sugar, honey or whatever sweetener you want. When I eat those I usually don't sweeten it but to each their own.

American badgers have a distinctive T-shaped marking on their faces. European badgers also have this T-shaped marking, with a thicker vertical stripe. Honey badgers, however, do not have the vertical stripe that these other badgers do.
