One huge problem with America is that even the best candidate can't win unless they raise huge funds and inevitably go to bed with their donors to some degree or other, rather than doing the right thing for our country as a whole.
Another huge problem is that every American seems to think that your statement is only true of the candidates/parties they oppose. []

Just what in the heck did parasitic worms or stinging jellyfish ever do to you to merit such a comparison?
Apart from a couple of nematode infections in childhood, and an unpleasant encounter with a Physalia physalis in Galveston Bay-nothing. So, good point.

Actually, I adore jellyfish and most of their relatives...especially as embryos. []

Somebody, other than sea turtles, must eat jellyfish.

Or am I thinking of sea cucumbers?

All those marine invertebrates look the same after a few dozen hours in a food dehydrator.

People eat both. I've had sea cucumber at a sushi bar. It's a weird and kinda gross animal that can eviscerate itself when attacked, allowing it to escape while the predator munches on it's innards.

On a personal note, I find sea-cucumber (taste-wise) to be teh suck.

Is "teh suck" good or bad?

*raises hand"

Also ate Sea Cucumber. I naively though it would be like cucumber [] . Really, really disgusting. Like how I'd imagine slug to taste like. Nearly as bad as the "Sea Asparagus" and "Fish Lips" I was treated to in the same meal. [] []

Where's a thread hijacked pic when you need it? []

But it escapes one death, only to die another horrible death due to lack of innards, right? How can it live without it's innards?

Freya - what country were you in that you were served such strange food?

Snowy, it was a business dinner in Singapore, so I had to eat all the dishes so I wasn't "pathetic blonde white girl who doesn't like foreign food" []

Hey I was right!

I just knew it was somewhere in Asia!

But what did they think of you when you threw up, Freya? []

I presented it to them as an English "dessert".....apple crumble and custard I think....and made out like I'd be offended if THEY didn't eat MY dish....

Sorry that was revolting.

Wow, I didn't expect that sort of answer!

You're dark, Freya, very dark. []

If the clichés about Asian businessmen (which I learned from watching Law and Order [] ) are true, those guys must have though they'd died and gone to heaven when you showed up, Freya.

WT - you mean because she's a blonde occidental or because she eats their food? Or both?
edit: Or neither?

I'm pretty sure he means because she's a gorgeous beautiful blond occidental, Pi. Asian men are known for their love of the blonds.

Snow Wizard, it's not just Asians - this American occidental has a special spot in his heart (and other places) for blondes as well. []

No offense to the gorgeous Freya, but I just absolutely go crazy for redheads. []

I love all colors, but fair skinned redheads just drive me nuts.
