Apparently you Dutch folk are the reason why orange carrots are by far the most prevalent.

Ah, yeah, the stuff you'd get from KFC or the supermarket or wherever never seems to be that good. But really, who's shocked?

Lipton do soups now? I thought they just did tea. And hey, why don't we do an exchange; I'll cook muffins, and when I'm sick, you make soup for me.

Though the Pacific Ocean might throw a spanner in the works there.
Ick, pumpkin. Orange anything is fail except for real oranges and orange juice. Candy, orange sodas and...vegetables? Fail.
I had sweet potatoes mostly at thanksgiving. They were tolerable but I wouldn't go as far to eat them any time outside of then.

Well, the coleslaw tends to be alright. I can eat it if I'm served it but I'm not fussed if I don't get any, so it's not that big of a deal to me. KFC is alright but I am not too much of a fan of fast food as I typically feel miserable after eating it and trying to lose weight doesn't call for fast food.
Last thing I had from out was a salad from our local pizzeria. Wasn't bad. But it was overloaded with carrots and I spent an hour picking them out.

Oh yeah, Lipton has done soup for a long time. When I was in my first year of school, my mum would make me a bowl of Lipton chicken noodle soup every day. They have that, onion soup and some others. They're not bad, I have to admit. Good for when you're sick!
Sounds like a good plan to me! I'll take you up on that offer if I'm ever in Australia.

It was mainly on the Rest Of U2 Survivor threads though, and especially as Passengers progressed, those threads would run to hundreds of posts.

Then Pop Survivor Round One simply exploded on 22 February. In a matter of hours, we closed in on 1,000, and not wanting the thread to be closed, we made a new chat thread to keep going. That became the postwhorehouse. As the American crowd left, the Aussie crowd arrived to keep it going, and as the Aussie crowd left, I held the fort until the Americans woke up and kept the place going. I was stunned when I got up and it was still alive. We were initially forum gypsies, resurrecting long-dead threads on largely ignored subforums, but after the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein incident, we settled here.

I should write a proper history of the Superthreads one day.

Well I'd like to think so.

That thread was very, very epic. My sis.

I'd be very interested in seeing that sometime.
This place is pretty much my interference home now.

I've made almost 600 posts in the time I've been here.
I bet I'll hit 2,000 later today since I'm stuck in bed!

Ah, that must be after when I've gone to bed. It'd be cool to get a bit more of a European crowd in here since the thread's usually fairly dead around 6-11am my time, which I believe is evening over your way. Though isn't LM around at that time?

And yeah, Ali hasn't shown her face here for a couple of days.

I used to enjoy pumpkin soup, but otherwise, I've always despised pumpkin. Oranges are good, though. I love orange juice, it's one of the main things I drink. As for kumara, though I don't enjoy it any more, kumara chips are surprisingly good.

KFC pisses me off because it's so bloody expensive. Why pay $10 for a burger and chips there when I could get an equally nasty McChicken for half the price? And the meals with burgers, drumsticks, coleslaws, and stuff are like $25, which I think is nothing short of a huge rort. The only fast food I feel any fondness for is Subway, though when Fellow Albino Railfan and I are out railfanning, we'll often stop in for a quick bite to eat at Hungry Jack's (Burger King to you) because it's at least edible, cheap, and doesn't hold us up long.

Huh, I've only ever seen them advertising tea and stuff.

I get the feeling that when people from this thread visit Melbourne, I'm going to be expected to cook!
