This has been a consistent problem with all retailers in this citiy for over a year, so I am suspecting some kind of general shortage on the market.

    Mostly in Australia, but it appears that demand has been increasing faster than supply worldwide for the last year or so.

    Thanks. I had heard of the water shortage in California but not of the Australian shortage. Most avocados in this part of the world are imported from Israel or South America. But with the shortage elsewhere they might be diverted and fewer arrive over here.

    They are far less fashionable in Germany though than in the US. They have more of a quaint 70s vintage reputation. But I've loved them ever since some Mexican friends introduced me to them 10 years or so ago.

    Why do people think they need to drink a gallon of water a day? I mean, WTF. My friend is like, "I have to do to the doctor-- something is not right with my body. I can't drink more than 80 oz of water a day." What the hell. Why do you need to? We have" thirst" for a reason. If you're drinking so much water you're uncomfortable, it's probably too much....

    I kind of want to fuck around a bit on here right now but not sure I have the energy, the ability(too lazy to get laptop so phone...), or the posts to do it.

    Life is hard.

    Yep total IEI.


    Still an IEI. Although there are more similarities with EII.

    Napoleon probably tucked his hand inside his shirt for the portrait because he has small hands.
