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.

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.

@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?

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.
