I get more comments when I start talking about food and drinks.

Like most of us, food and drinks are a necessity of life. And variety the spice of it. Then I can get many comments about donuts, or doughnuts, but when I post a discussion about space exploration I get practically nothing in the order of comments or likes. Could it be that there are a lot of hungry myLotters here? I would imagine so. I get hungry just talking about being hungry for donuts, steak, or chocolates. That said, I guess I should try to combine food with astronomy. So why not a chocolate planet? Why not a planet with chocolate mountains, molten fudge volcanoes and marshmallow clouds? Hmm. what a great idea. So right now I am orbiting Planet Cheeseburger. It's sun is made up of molten yellow nacho cheese that shines light down on Planet Cheeseburger. It's moon, a large malted milk ball, orbits the planet with the same smiley face looking straight down on the inhabitants who are made mostly of cookies with marshmallow eyes and have hot chocolate in their veins. They speak a language that goes something like this: "We all live on a Cheeseburger world, seeking higher life forms in the oceans of mocha cappuccino waves with frothy foam on the graham cracker crumbs that line up the beaches." So forth and so on. I'm too hungry to go on.

You are correct...discussions related to good usually give better results. I think because everyone can easily relate to them

Looking at that picture you posted, I feel a heart attack coming on. I won't mind dark chocolate though.

In moderation even a Chili Cheese dog can make a person feel like they are in paradise in their tummy that is.

@TheInvisibleMan Actually, I watch what I eat very carefully so I don't envisage a heart attack in my near future, but one never knows what may happen along the way.

Too much food, that would make me sick! What do these cookie humanoids eat? I know we can eat them, but I wonder what they eat. Maybe they eat us. This discussion made me want to give a look at your recent space discussions, food is a language everyone speaks and it's real, visible and can be touched. Unfortunately the universe is so distant we can easily ignore its existence. And it's also scary for some, knowing that we're a tiny waterdrop in a huge ocean.

@TheInvisibleMan But space isn't that bad either. (An impressive annoying amount of Mathematics and Physics perhaps)

@lookatdesktop I think their meals come out of tubes. I can't imagine enjoying this for months on end.

@MALUSE I don't either. I bet they are happy when they get back to Earth and can try to adjust to eating more of their favorite foods but I wonder if they suffer from certain kinds of tummy troubles going from those tubes of pre made foods to the real thing back at home on Earth?

The moon was said to be made of cheese once. Maybe that idea was from a very hungry astronomer from a time when cheese was a comfort food. But I think cheese still is. I need nachos ASAP!

Planet cheeseburger seems like a good place to get a mid-morning snack! I guess food and drinks are easier topics to comment to compared to space exploration.

Oh my why did you have to go and get me hungry? It is past midnight here in Latvia. Now I might just have to have a midnight snack. I usually get hungry while I work for hours on the PC.

@RasmaSandra Where I live, in Dallas, Texas, that would become a sticky situation. I think if I did own a dog, our remote control would get ate up.

Well, food is a lot more fun to talk about for the majority of people than astronomy. We all know something about food and can discuss it.

So what you mean by this is you are willing to eat a chocolate frosted cheeseburger? That is something new. Maybe they will do this at the next Texas State Fair? hmm.

I love watching cooking videos with my kids. The best part is trying the recipes in our kitchen and hearing their raving compliments.

Yep. But my main thing is, I like doing some taste tests on the new recipes my wife tries out. I sometimes can't wait for dinner to be served so I will snack from the bowl or the tray and this tends to only make waiting for the meal seem that much harder to do.

I know it. And food for thought is also getting me wanting to go out and pick me up some burgers at a local Jack in the Box cause they sometimes stay open past midnight. And I get these cravings sometimes.

I think you're onto something there -- also a reason why conversations about the weather are popular - because it's something we all experience

It's said that you should never go shopping when you are hungry. Perhaps you should only post on myLot when you or your readers are hungry.
