Supply Chain - the last straw
« on: May 13, 2021, 09:58:22 am »

OK, it was bad enough that my last two shipments from Sweetwater were wrapped with plain, brown tape (not the usual Logo'd stuff), but the latest package's candy bag was completely devoid of Atomic Fireballs!  When will this madness end?!?!?!?!?

This was bound to happen eventually. Those Atomic Fireball candies are made with tantalum which is only mined in conflict zones these days. Capacitors, candy, we'll just have to learn to live without.

They could replace the tantalum with thorium, which is widely available and tastes the same.

Measure twice, and cut once; this is especially important if you are a mohel.

So is my Diabetes doctor....
Actually, she recommends keeping some around if I want a "Taste" of chocolate, and not resort to eating a whole candy bar.

That took me a second, until I remembered that "Smarties" are a totally different candy in Canada (we call them "Rockets").
