    I am presently off on my jollies in the US and was visited by my grandparents. With them they had found in the back of their cupboards an essential UK condiment known as salad cream ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44373387 ), likely from a previous visit or visit from another UK bound relative.

    The date today is some time in November 2018 (be thankful I have the month - my knowing what day of the week it was was a notion that left years ago). I have dealt with death, injury, disease and more for my entire life, that however rattled me. Salad cream should not a) be wasted and b) be that colour. I would however be lying if I said there was not an almost overwhelming temptation to open it and have a sniff.



    Also I feel the need to point out it says product of NL (the Netherlands, or Holland for the geographically challenged). Mainly as many there seem to believe mayonnaise ( see link ) is the way.

    That stuff's color reminds me of that one 4chan thread with the jizz in a bottle

    Don't worry, FAST, it's just as edible today as it was the day it was made.



    On an unrelated note, "salad cream" is the furthest thing from "sunshine" that I can think of (this includes Marmite and excrement). I just can't see the association.

    Nintendo works for my dad
    In about 2004 I found some out of date tuna in my parents fridge.

    It was 2004, the fish was out of date since 1993. Here's one catch, though: we only moved into the house in 1996. So apparently my mom decided to not throw out fish that was three years out of date when we moved.

    Suffice to say I didn't have the willpower to open it. Stench of fish makes my stomach churn as it is.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    "So, you remember that time you told me you were gay? That cup is for you." I feel bad for the person who had to fill those cups.

    Disturbing sight: my life.
