Scarlet, dear . . . you're going to get a headache doing that . . .

And you're going to need to be thinking clearly - you have a decision to make: Do you go along with it in hopes of being able to deal with whatever disaster they create, or do you wash your hands of it?

I believe it should.

So, who is going to organize the betting pool on the question of just exactly how this situation will go badly?

Not whether it goes badly... just how.

10% of the proceeds shall go to a charitable cause... and I suggest that the Tylenol fund for Scarlet would be a good choice. She's definitely going to need it.

One good thing seems to be those of the group that were just running in circles feeling all angsty are now united in a single pursuit of exploring the here-after for ghosts and stuff...

Of course, since they are making their plans in their club-room, apparently the center of the haunting itself, it's not as if the ghost or ghosts won't know they're coming...

RE my earlier suggestion that the group should research the history of the room, further consideration has lead me to see obstacles. I don't think we've seen any evidence of a school or para community newspaper, back issues of which might have spoken of what happened in the room. There are no grizzled school custodians who know more about what's going on in the school than the principal. And all the teachers seem relatively young. Whatever information there is about that room might therefore be present only in - and carefully locked up in - school and/or MiB files.

If Principal Andersen takes time out from canoodling Kath to forbid Castela and friends from staying in the room overnight, we'll know she knows something and it's not good.

I would say that canoodling requires a noodle, but from some of the things I've seen on the internet, substitutions are frequently made.

That's because Erza works at the Library, not Gryphon.

Dear Lord - Gluten/wheat free spaghetti? Well, it has been worse for some:

Yeah, I was wondering about that. Seems like an idea that's somewhere between bad, and implausible.

My first reaction is seeing the image of that can was "Ugh. Must be earthworms in ketchup sauce. The very sort of thing that Calvin would have tortured Susie Derkins with, at school lunch."

The manufacturers claim these noodles are made from corn and rice flour. Sounds almost as bad as the allergen-elimination diet my wife got stuck with for a couple of weeks, some years ago: white rice, tapioca, and bread made from Lima bean flour. :(

It beats never being able to eat spaghetti ever again.

Or suffering weeks of intestinal agony if you do.

- Is it true McDonalds makes it's buns from Potato Flour?

- A well informed Elder (long involved in Healthy and True Farming) says He thinks that the seemingly recent 'Gluten Upset' thinks that the problem is due to the RoundUp built into the (mono-culture) Wheat being sent to market these days. (In other words, the Wheat we got 'in the Old Days' ain't the same as we get today...)

- Spaghetti in a Can. Need I say more?

That's how they handle the overflow when there's been a good spaghetti harvest!

Great to see the historic documentary footage, but that was traditional natural spaghetti. I think they exported the surplus to Casablanca, where it was canned under the Franco-American label.

The stuff in the can Dave found is gluten-free spaghetti, a genetically modified Frankenfood.

But what they neglect to say, for reasons that I don't fully understand, is just why the spaghetti weevil was no longer a problem. Like many other species of weevils, beetles, and insects-in-general, the spaghetti weevil is quite edible and nourishing... they're quite tasty when toasted with just a pinch of garlic salt. The canny Swiss spaghetti farmers had realized that they could create a very nice secondary income by collecting the weevils, freezing them, and exporting them to South America, where the Eurocentric bias against eating insects isn't an issue.

I suppose the filmstrip publishers didn't want to risk an "ewww" reaction from the English movie-going audience for which this short seems to have been made. No sense putting the customers off of their suet pudding.
