At a half pound each that'd be the jawbreaker of Reese's cups :oops:

Aaanyway...Snope's hasn't gotten to this yet...

Cheers!
 
The legend is true. I've seent it. I've eatened it. I've lived it. I've wielded its power as the diabetic spirit flowed through my veins.



At Costco, if I remember correctly.
 
When in doubt, check AMZ.

Then looked at the "Reese's Store" linked right under the description. I am now happier than ever that I am no longer in the distribution center there. I would likely be 400 lb by now with all of those different variations.

Back 20 years ago it was something when they started running the shapes {trees, eggs, pumkins...). You would come in to work and you could smell the peanut butter in the air from a case or two that a forklift accidentally speared. We would have to write them off as damage and see to it that they were not released to the general public.

Seriously, some shard of metal could have penetrated the packaging and we wouldn't want anyone hurt...

Edit: BTW this was all above board. Hershey was well aware of and monitored our shrink (which was far lower than contracted.). The only rule was that we could eat as much as we liked in the cafe or offices, but none was to leave the building.

Sounds like you've led a pretty rough life, a genuine salt dog lol
 
What I would be more worried about are these braces that were installed to keep the rail from rolling over. Now that is scary.

And the fact that there are no tie plates under the rail in this section. With spikes clearly splitting the tie o_O

Vs the other side.

Yea, NY needs more cash in the mass transit system, but what are you going to do...

Edit.. The good news is that the middle (express) track is out of commission. You can tell but the rusty top of the rail, it hasn't been used in a while.

That's the Green line. Orange line is another story

The good news is the woman that jumped off the bridge would have met a death sentence into that polluted water. Now? It's quite clean.

When the T posted this story I replied back that I was a soon to be freshman from India attending Harvard. I wanted to know the rules like at home when it's allowed to jump off trains into rivers for recreation

Kinda reminded me of the Carl Hiaasen novel, 'Skin Tight' where Private Investigator Mick Stranahan ambushes a hitman sent to kill him. Mick impales the would-be hitman with the sword of a stuffed marlin head.
And yes, the story, like all of Hiaasen's books, takes place in Florida. He's one of the funniest authors I've read, always combining Florida-life insanity with mystery, humor, and some of the zaniest characters you'll ever read about.

That's not fiction in London, I was less than a mile away when a narwhal tusk was used to attack a suspected suicide bomber :
