I miss ol' Spidey. He used to show up on late evenings and sit around in the spotlight from a lamp because the wall got a little warmer there. He's probably dead now.

You should try Casu Marzu:

Derived from Pecorino, casu marzu goes beyond typical fermentation to a stage most would consider decomposition, brought about by the digestive action of the larvae of the cheese fly Piophila casei. These larvae are deliberately introduced to the cheese, promoting an advanced level of fermentation and breaking down of the cheese's fats. The texture of the cheese becomes very soft, with some liquid (called lagrima, from Sardinian language for "tear") seeping out. The larvae themselves appear as translucent white worms, about 8 mm (0.3 in) long. When disturbed, the larvae can launch themselves for distances up to 15 cm (6 in). Some people clear the larvae from the cheese before consuming while others do not. The cheese, along with one of its Sardinian makers, Giovanni Gabbas, received attention on Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. Zimmern described the taste of the cheese as "so ammoniated" that " scorches your tongue a bit." The cheese is known to leave an aftertaste for a duration of up to several hours.

Europeans love cheese much more than Americans in my experience.

Americans prefer cheese-like products.

I would shoot a guy too if I had to eat a tuna & mayo sandwich.
Protip: don't go to the UK and try to have "lunch" while at work, because that's most likely what you'll get, along with potato chips (the salty crispy kind, not the fish'n'chips kind) and a chocolate bar.

Even in Norway they eat sandwiches for lunch. A hot lunch is apparently not that common, at least in workplaces. They eat a heavier breakfast instead.

Looks like something out of the Lion King intro.

In this day and age of constant budget cuts, the JAS-39 is the most cost-effective choice and I'm quite certain that the FAF will choose it in the future. In '95 the first JAS-39 model hadn't come out yet and we needed a new plane urgently that was also NATO compatible. We chose the F-18.

Plus, y'know, they get paid tens of millions for some of the most useless professions around. It's completely centered around their looks. Guess they'll have to cry all the way to the bank.

Not completely off-topic:

And Putin's view of the west as weak is confirmed. He can do whatever he wants.

Am I the only one around here who doesn´t feel sorry at all for those celebrities whose nudes got leaked? Don´t take nudes of yourself. Even if you keep them on your own phone, it´s your own fault. For such a dumb decision you have to face the consequences.

Same. Don't take stupid pictures of yourself, ever. They don't go away.

creepy and funny 'cuz iz true'

I'm looking to find some items and thought it would be a good idea to list some tried and proven stores across Europe. Americans are naturally allowed to post theirs as well.

For stores located in Finland, I've only used Varusteleka, but there are a few: (use Translate) (use Translate)

The items I'm specifically looking for are:
- 60mm-to-40mm gas mask adapter
- 40 mm gas mask filter (sealed, vacuum packed if possible, exp. date 2020+)

On Amazon UK there's none, and on Amazon DE they don't ship those items to Finland. There's a US site with a very wide selection including both of these items, however they ask almost triple the original price for shipping costs alone ($50+):

Comments? Suggestions?
