25 years ago on a lark I bought a small jar of that to taste what all the shouting was about. It immediately was placed in my bugout bag with the MRE's and parafinned matches and is still good as new.

An excellent plan since it can also be used as gear lube for any disabled vehicles which are resurrectable after holocaust.

Ah, good idea. I had thought to lay in a large supply up in the mountains to lob at patrols with a trebuchet as demoralizing tactic. That might bring out the black copters though, so maybe not.

Haaaaaaaaaaaa... I used to feel that way, but was down under for a couple years and grew to like the stuff. trick is starting with using hardly any. I prefer Marmite to Vegemite though most North American's think they both taste like poo-poo.(I was just mod-mailed over a different spelling of that last word)

To achieve Vegemite in my tropical home is very expensive.

To achieve Marmite in my British home is not so very expensive.

You either love it or hate it.

I spread it thick when I feel deficient of Vitamins.

One of the first things I noticed about this forum was it does not have a word filter to turn certain words into asterisks. I think that is because the administration here wishes to treat us as adults, and expects us to behave as adults.

I like that.

We are all given the chance to congregate and engage in stimulating discussion (generally about cameras and photography) and to do so as responsible grown ups. I know that sometimes we don't all mesh well, but generally we get over whatever it was that gets us all fuzzed up, shake hands and move on.

This is one thing that sets this forum apart from the zillions of internet forums. We are given the opportunity to behave as we choose, and constraints are not placed up front, i.e. the word filter that so many other forums have. The rules are pretty basic, and quite easy to adhere to.

So thanks to Adam, Ole, and all the m0dZ for providing us with this fantastic forum.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled program.

Without a K3.
