You are giving Our Youth(tm) bad ideas AA.

Why do you insist on leading Our Youth(tm) astray? And why do you hate hotdogs? :)

Let's say your porridge needs salt, but you've run out.

Time to call a chemist. :)

The way chemists make salt is downright sensible compared to the way physicists make gold.

Just smash together a couple of neutron stars.

And the alchemists tried doing it with a puny philosopher's stone. How boring. :roll:

Fruity Pebbles is not a flavor: It's a lifestyle.

As noted (open the spoiler tag), the flavor is amyl acetate.

Juicy Fruit gum, Trix, Froot Loops, etc.
