Give me candy


'Give me candy' instead of 'point of reputation', for more tough folks 'give me glass of beer'. It would be nice to have bag of candies.

Unless someone will actually undertake to send real candy or voucher for beer that I can use locally I'll continue to accept reputation points.

They hurt nothing in my view and do make me feel like my posts are appreciated.

I, for one, shan't be joining your coalition.

As a healthy eater, I would suggest giving almonds, hummus or other such foodstuffs.

As an unhealthy eater, I'd suggest pizza, burgers, and anything else that's fatting...

But seriously, while I could send you a picture of some candy, given it's not possible to send some real candy; what's the point of this thread?

LQ users could voluntarily provide their home addresses and LQ people could employ a drone that would deliver ordered bags of candy. Wouldn't it be nice?

Giving anonymous people on the internet my home address doesn't appeal to me.

Maybe we could get pizzas delivered to our nearest Domino's HotSpot instead:

What could we do instead is pair up as members and give the other person's address for the pizza. That way we would fool them, but would still get pizza (if our partner is contributing well to LQ).

And on that note. Leftover Digornio is in da fridge. Thanks in this thread for reminding me.

Beer is in the motorcycle shop fridge. Candy is every where here for the tricker treaters later on.

So on that note.

Time to break out the zig-zags. Or maybe load up the dug out with some skunk.

PS. I eat healthy. Home made from scratch biscuits, and sausage gravy. With a side of Pecos cantaloupe . $1.50 a melon from roadside sellers.

You eat well but I'm sure 4 out of 5 doctors wouldn't call sausage gravy "healthy".
