Project X – N

For all the bionic details about what led to the Creation of Project X, please visit the Intro Post. It’s totally worth six million bionic dollars.

LIKE
Nitroglycerin

Of course, any high explosive will do but considering how unstable Nitro is, I like it. I love those old movies where they are trying to move old dynamite and they don’t know if the nitro inside it is stable or not and just when you think they’ve gotten it all safely, BOOOOM, some old guy gets blown to bloody smithereens with gobbets everywhere.

DISLIKE
Neapolitan Icecream

While I love icecream so much, I can not abide Neapolitan. Why? I have no idea. I like chocolate icecream. I like vanilla icecream. I like strawberry icecream. But put them together side by side and suddenly it is like a tentacle monster is trying to have its way with my tastebuds. Just Say No to Neapolitan!


And that is it for this week. Stay tuned for our next episode, .where there will be a distinct lack of Orgies, guaranteed!

      1. Hahaha, I do like dark chocolate (to a degree, not that 90% stuff). But I don’t like stuff in my chocolates… nuts are fine, but you can piss of with your orange and your marzipan 🤢
        Dave is a bigger chocoholic though. No grocery shop is complete without chocolate peanuts…

  1. Historically, colors of the Neapolitan ice-cream were of the Italian flag: green (pistachio or almond), white (vanilla), and red (cherry, actually pink). More than likely, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry became the standard for the reason that they were the most popular flavors in the United States at the time of introduction (1885 or so).

  2. I think it’s because in Neapolitan strawberry just doesn’t taste like strawberry at all, but something vaguely sweet and cardboard. Come to think of it, even chocolate doesn’t really taste like chocolate in Neapolitan! 😉

  3. In Germany, that sort of ice cream is synonymous with — in fact, named for — this guy:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann,_Fürst_von_Pückler-Muskau

    Go figure, there he goes and makes a name for himself in his own time as a landscape garden designer and travel author, and all posterity remembers is that he popularized a particular type of dessert … 😀

    As for explosives, a recent read of Terry Pratchett’s “Maskerade” reminded me that nothing is as lethal as Nanny Ogg’s apple …. juice. It would probably have made ol’ Alfed Nobel weep if he’d ever have known of it!
