Rizla licquorice. Using 'em myself.

Fishy, you just reminded me of our woodwork teacher. He had a unique smell. He liked honey in his coffee, so it was a heady mix of coffee, honey, wood shavings and pipe tobacco. He also called me a retard, but I'll forgive him that.

Just like the sight of sheets on a laundry line, flapping in the wind, always reminds me of the arms of our math miss, especially when she was writing on the board.

Just like the sight of the school-marmish look, hair up, glasses on, blouse too tight, reminds of when I pulled one off under the desk in a history class.

Ah, Mrs. Marshall...

I know that, in the U.S., food sales are how movie theaters stay in business, since the film, itself, takes most of ticket sales.  Popcorn is sold at 1,400% of the material cost.  And it's the only thing I really want to eat when I see a movie.  This is a stupid decision.

Quote from: article
Daniel Broch, owner of the renowned Everyman Cinema Club, said that he is aiming to provide a more sophisticated service for cinema-goers.

He has already banned popcorn from his 17-venue empire, instead offering made-to-order canapes and a waiter service.

I'd rather hear someone munching on popcorn than "I'll take a wine spritzer with the filet mignon.... broiled with rice as a side. Thanks waiter."

This sounds like it's gonna wind up a business parallel to rental porn.

No, seriously.  The enormous video-rental chains don't carry pornos, but the only way local video stores
(at least over here) can stay in business is to devote half the shop to the "adults only" room.  Sure, they
try to maintain a facade of respectability by stocking a couple of old-favorites, Latest Blockbusters, and
Hannah Montana, but the cash-flow is in pornos, which they can buy for less, and rent out for more than
mainstream flix.

If I was good in business I would start my own porno rental store/company. My bosses are fucking loaded. I would be better to my employees though.

From what I have read about this story, I don't think all the mainstream places would be banning popcorn, it was proposed by a couple of the arty 'high class' cinemas. So it probably WON'T be widespread. But I think the whole thing is just a bit idiotic. What next, banning tall people in case the people they are sitting behind don't have a perfect view?
