Just find them a good thing, especially if you're stuck in a car all day. Also do you really want to go in to a smelly car? Really don't see the big issue. :?

Can't say I'm particularly bothered about a smelly car, unless it smells of the industrial chemicals with which all air 'fresheners' are fragranced. For once, I think most people on here agree with me

Never got in a taxi with a stinky driver, Ray? Some of those cunts sit there all day, sweating and stuffing their fat gobs with pies.

No, never have. But then I don't get taxis. Nor, indeed, do I mind the smell of people or food so much as intense pine-style fragrancing experience with added volatile hydrocarbons.

I'm with Ray here, give me the smell of sweat and pies over cloying artificial scents any day. I spend half my life soaked in sweat anyway so I wouldn't even notice :lol:

SMOKING

-5 people smoking immediately near entryways to public buildings
-5 People smoking IN MY HOME without asking.
-4 People vaping IN MY HOME without asking.
-1 being around second hand smoke in general. I have really bad asthma.
Neutral towards people smoking in their own homes around me. I don't stay long though.
1 kissing a smoker unless they are very, very good...
5 secondhand clove smoke, it doesn't bother me much.
6 kissing clove smokers, unless they are very, very good and then....
10 People giving me a drag off their clove while we are making out or post sex.

2 Snickers
4 Almond Snickers
-1 people snickering :(

1 'Love Me Do' - ugh. It is repetitive as fuck and an irritating ear worm.

colouring-in books
1 for "Adult coloring books" (go fuck yourselves hipsters)
neutral as far as the existence of coloring books in general
5 for me coloring as I'd rather just doodle.
8 if I am coloring with Veronica in a coloring book because she makes it fun.

10 New Zealand - I don't know much but YEARS ago my BCB secret santa sent me a massive coffee-table book and I've always wanted to go ever since. i'm sure it has sucktacular places, but between that book, BOSH's truffle pictures and LOTR, I'm ready to move there.

Cheetos
5 for the puff kind
6 for the crunch kind
7 for the crunchy cheddar jalapeño ones (I ate some tonight)
-10 for the orange fingers.

Spencer Tracy
10 for Judgment at Nuremberg, Inherit the Wind, Captains Courageous, Fury

The Times - no rating. I don't read it. Online I generally opt for the Guardian and BBC news
The New York Times - 9
The Los Angeles Times - 8

carrots
- 10 for that horrible salad of shredded carrots in mayo with raisins, or carrots put in jello
6 raw
7 cooked
7 Carrot cake
9- carrot juice
10 - Carrots cooked with cabbage or sprouts and brown butter or Carrots fried with potatoes and garlic

5 - Trivial Pursuit. I'd rather play lots of things, but it is better than monopoly.

Canada
9 Vancouver, Bay of Fundy
10 Glacier National Park, Toronto, Lake Louise, Haida Gwaii BC, Jasper National Park

1 McDonald's milkshakes - I don't think I've had one since maybe 1976.

100 Hallowe'en best holiday in the universe

2 Hillary Clinton - one of the more irritating baby boomers in politics today. Pretty much sums up everything I dislike about the Democratic Party. She is far too conservative despite her liberal roots. and appallingly Insensitive to non-white people, the poor, working class, lower middle class and the young. Similarly insensitive and clueless about the issues that matters most to me and which motivate me as a voter.

10 roast dinners - I'm a zillion times more fond of the veggies that go with the roast than the roast itself...

3 Play-Doh - the smell gets to me... I just prefer sculpey or modeling clay or even model magic

I'm a little bit bamboozled as to the reference to electric blankets being carcinogenic (where the paucity of evidence is telling) and clove cigarettes swing by without as much as a wagging finger. You must really hate electric blankets.

smoking - 10 when I smoked. These days probably a 3 which means I occasionally smoke when quite drunk and the opportunity presents itself. I do miss fags. Ditto weed but glad I "stopped"
Snickers - 1. Fuck off
'Love Me Do' - 6. Pretty good
colouring-in books - 1. Am I 9?
New Zealand - 7. It's lovely but the cities are shit.
Cheetos - ooo, 10. I remember eating one of those large fuck off packets you get in America coming back from a long day trip and it was like manna from heaven. The corner shop sells em. Result
Spencer Tracy - er...
electric blankets - 10
Bill Bryson - 6
car air-fresheners - 0. Vile things
The Times - I dunno...5?
carrots - 8. But not raw
Trivial Pursuit - 6
Canada - Never been. I'll give it 4 for Harvey
McDonald's milkshakes - 0. Fuck off. I'd rather drink horse semen
Hallowe'en - 8. I love that time of year. We usually have a horror night with friends plus it brings back happy childhood memories
Hillary Clinton - 4
roast dinners - 10!!! One of my favourite things in the world
Play-Doh - 3

smoking: 3. Only for my friends that still smoke, the poor bastards, and for the fact that, even though I gave them up 12 years ago I still get the odd craving, which I sometimes satisfy with weed, but then I have to deal with all that nonsense.

Snickers: 5. I'll eat 'em, but they wouldn't be my first choice.

'Love Me Do': 6.

colouring-in books: 1. Boring.

New Zealand: 8. Seems like a nice place. Bit far away, though.

Cheetos: 10. I fucking LOVE Cheetos. They are probably my most-purchased crisp-type food objects.

Spencer Tracy: 3. I think I've only seen one film he was in, and I don't even remember what it was called.

electric blankets: 1. They are actually blankets, which is good if you need a blanket, but they've got those little wires running through them (or at least they did the last time I encountered one at my grandparents' house in the 70's) which feel weird. I never did like 'em.

Bill Bryson: N/A. A friend once recommended a book of his, but I never read it.

car air-fresheners: 4. We had a pair of plastic cherries hanging from the rear-view of our 2nd last car. They lost their scent pretty fast, but were nice to look at.

The Times: 3. For existing, I guess.

carrots: 7. Essential for mirepois, and I like 'em raw with hummous, and roasted, and steamed and buttered, but not in stews.

Trivial Pursuit: 7. It's a good game, and I've had some great times playing it with friends, but I probably know 85% of the answers by heart these days.

Canada: 9.5. It's home. It's mostly good. It's still just a child of a country and needs to do some growing up. I'm glad I live here.

McDonald's milkshakes: 5. I sort of like the flavour of their vanilla shakes, even though they're a little bit chemically tasting. They're too fucking thick, though, and you need cheek muscles like Dizzie Gillespie's to get a haul off one.

Hallowe'en: 8. I like Hallowe'en. We always get a bit of candy to hand out, but hardly anyone ever comes down our dark little dead-end street. Maybe I'll carve a pumpkin this year.

Hillary Clinton: 5. I'd go out for dinner with her if she paid.

roast dinners: 10. Hell yeah! Mmmm, I'm getting hungry just thinking about a good roast dinner.

Play-Doh: 7. The Fuzzy Pumper Barber Shop™ was ace, and I loved the smell of the stuff.
