    Not really. I like Rice Krispies. But NOT Rice Krispie treats. If I get any this Purim, I’ll burn ’em with the rest of the chometz on erev Pesach.

    GG,to be honest, I prefer the mon. Now THAT tastes like chicken – or anything I want, for that matter.

    There was that one time I wondered what window cleaner tastes like….

    If a song contains the syllables “oyoyoyyyy” and they are enunciated in an emotive fashion, it is likely Jewish. 😛

    Yup. The packaging made it look like it ought to taste like chicken but … as usual, it tasted just like matzah.

    Suggestion: read plot summaries online instead of watching the episodes. That way, you can still follow the story for however long you feel the need to. 🙂

    And for movies, there are companies that offer content filters for the newest titles within months of their releases. (Will the Mods let me name the companies?) If you don’t want to completely cut out movies, you are now able to at least cut out the most negative content in them.

    Guys, I appreciate your enthusiasm in debating your topic, but I feel it is sufficiently different from my original topic.

    Mod-permitting, I’d like to ask that you continue your discussion in a different thread.

    I think I have the basic information I need. I’ll go bother my rav if I have any further questions. 🙂

    There is no need to close this.

    I like Roller Coaster Tycoon. I find that Railroad Tycoon is a bit confusing, though. Different company, different rules. Not all Tycoon games are from the same developers.

    For girls, I would recommend the Nancy Drew PC games. They’re pretty clean, and could be appropriate for a Jewish home with a few exceptions: one game covers Mayan culture, another has heavy Greek mythology themes, one game takes place in Ireland and you can see some Celtic crosses in the background of one scene and a couple of the games have particularly intense ghosts (that turn out to be fake in the end). Oh yeah, and Nancy does have a boyfriend and is often a character Nancy can call on her in-game phone for game hints, but that’s not a major part of the games and you can easily play them without having to bring that up at all. There are about 30 games in the series now, and it’s at the parent’s discretion to determine which ones are suitable for their homes.

    There used to be a series of Jewish games about the Shoftim called Tanach Quest. Not sure where to find it anymore, though. It may be a bit disturbing for young players, though, because — believe it or not — there’s a bit of bloody violence and jump scares from villainous characters you have to kill with axes and knives.

    You can also use a ROM emulator to play old arcade games like Pacman, Joust, and Paperboy.

    Good for you! If you weren’t getting productive results from using a smartphone, you’re probably better off using a regular “stupid” phone. 🙂 And believe me, it’s much easier to post on the CR with a proper keyboard and mouse than it is on a touchscreen. (YWN, will you ever give the CR a mobile version?)

    The only good things the BBC has to offer, in my opinion, are Doctor Who and the Teletubbies. And when I say Teletubbies, I’m being incredibly generous.

    What can I say? They’re only good at telling fiction. The problem is, now they’re claiming it’s reality and people actually believe it.

    Gefen makes nice instant ramen noodles without MSG. And I love a nice, warm bowl of homemade chicken-noodle soup.

    But those noodle soup cups are kind of gross. Not because they taste bad – heavens, no! (I’m rather partial to the piquant flavored ones from Osem, I think is the brand.) It’s just that if you bring a cup of them to school, everybody feels the need to ask you if they can reach their grubby hands into your cup and take some of your noodles. And if you consent to this indignity, your noodle soup cup becomes gross.

    @randomex – Yes, that’s what I’ve heard about why he used lollipops. Apparently, on Telly (intentional pun), they were also starting to ban depictions of smoking.

    Would a better question be “Lollipops – who loves ’em?”

    But yeah, in that circumstance, that seems a bit unfunny. I do not like it when people feel the need to polarize and pigeonhole everybody they interact with. It doesn’t bring us closer together as a nation; it divides us into more and more segments.
