    I'm paying more attention to my surroundings. It's a nice change of pace.

    Americans, what sorts of candy or snacks from your nation would you recommend to foreign nationals? If you could recommend only one what would it be?

    I've actually done extensive research on this. For your ilk I would recommend the Hershey's Milk & Cookies bar, not, I repeat, not a regular Hershey's bar. People from the Isles universally report that they taste like ass.

    I'm not as militant as some on the Herseys tastes like shite topic, I dont think its that good but I'll be honest I dont think a lot of UK based choclate tastes that good since they all got bought out by Kraft.

    Back when I was living in the US I slowly started to develop a taste for Hersheys, for the lack of available decent alternatives (this was in the mid-90s). They weren't really available on this side of the pont at the time, but years later I tried them again and was shocked! WTF had I been eating?

    GAH, I've just realized that I've stopped being fun since I started taking this coursework seriously!

    What can I do to be cool again? I need to get my 7 side back in action again...
    @Chanaynay @Enthusiastic_Dreamer Any suggestions?

    They're really bad. Their popularity is one of those things that makes me loose faith in humanity.

    Usually I have simple policy. If I don't know something , I just say that I don't know, that I'll check this out and give the information later. It's more professional than pretending that I know what I'm talking about. But when I learn to do something or improvise I could use looking more confident and less confused.

    Dammit, I do it very often. That’s a good advise, I’m sure that I can limit it if I pay attention. Thanks!
