I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.


There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

FrootLoops: EU vs. US, the battle of the breakfasts

(viewed 8527 times)

A comparison between FrootLoops sourced from different sides of the Atlantic reveal the surprising absence of the beloved blue loop. The blue loop is generally acknowledged by connoisseurs to be the greatest and most tasty of loops. Even the logo on the box is affected by this travesty, with the purple loop having to fill-in for its missing brother. This deplorable situation seriously degrades the visual appeal of the box. Note also the flabby, over-large appearance of the EU loop, in contrast to the smaller but perfectly-formed all-American loop.

The differences between European and American FrootLoops are stark. It is quite clear that the poor European is being denied access to the best loops by unaccountable Eurocrats, only interested in lining their own nests with money and blue-flavoured loops.

We all know that our politicians are like pigs at the trough, and now we know what it is that they are scoffing! Brothers and sisters it is time for action! We must march on Brussels and demand our rights, our liberty, and our little blue loops!

Spiderbaby says:

Well, if you ask me the US ones were ruined when they added "fiber". And both packets claim to be made with "natural" colours, so maybe it's just down to a plain old European phobia of neon breakfast cereal?... No, you're probably right, Brussels is keeping all the blue (or should that be "bloo") loops locked up in a secret warehouse somewhere.

spiderbaby, this is exactly the meaningful discussions you miss when you aren't around the blog...'fiber' in quotation marks. :)
