In pre-columbian meso-america, chocolate was food of the gods... What would people do without the foods of the native americans (from both continents that is).

the tomato
the chile pepper
the potato

they also ate a lot of magic mushrooms and pierced their scrotums with stingray spines.

but i digress...
2002-07-17 07:07:50 PM  
Did they brake for garage sales, too?
2002-07-17 07:21:55 PM  
If the only booze you had to drink was fermented human spit you'd drink chocolate too.
2002-07-17 07:23:02 PM  
I heard Marlboro puts cocoa in their make it go down smoother, we're actually still smoking it... I smoked German cigarettes (without it)...and it tore my throat up..
2002-07-17 07:56:46 PM  
And if you didn't learn that in history class, you should have at least learned it from watching Chocolat...

There are few make-believe words dumber than "chocoholic." Is there some addictive substance called "chocohol?"
2002-07-17 08:14:00 PM  
2002-07-17 08:14:21 PM  
they also said that history would end (or words to that effect) on December 21, 2012

i, for one, tend to believe 'em
2002-07-17 08:24:12 PM  
Are there any "Tomaccoholics"?
2002-07-17 08:25:06 PM  
"they also said that history would end (or words to that effect) on December 21, 2012

i, for one, tend to believe 'em"

Here here. With the way everything seems to be going down the crapper lately, I wouldn't be surprised...

my high school teacher told us the Mayans also invented the self adhering postage stamp.

Mmmmmm... poo
2002-07-17 08:43:48 PM  
I would like to apologies for the lack of humor my previous post.
2002-07-17 08:49:08 PM  
Chocolate wasn't the only thing the Mayan's were addicted to. :)
2002-07-17 08:49:36 PM  
Apology accepted. :)
2002-07-17 08:57:23 PM  
Ugh...I clicked on this becuase I thought it said Ancient Mayans Were Catholics.

I need sleep, or chocolate.

And they were all obese, so they were no challenge for the Conquistadors.

FeySianna, RaoulDuke
Hey, end of the world or not, I think we should all make fer a huge party for then. Hundereds of people to celebrate the end of time, or history, or the world, or however it's supposed to go- We'll find out maybe; and if not, it'll still be cool party
2002-07-17 09:25:14 PM  
Someone post a frame from that Simpsons where the kids go to the chocolate factory (?) and are shown a film about the history of chocolate and they show that Indian ("But they didn't eat it; they smoked it!") Pleeeeese?
2002-07-17 09:46:52 PM  
works for me Prime..... frist we have a party to end all parties, then we dive headfirst into the face of the naked Now. yeeeeeha! :)
2002-07-17 10:00:57 PM  
I'm like a chocoholic, but for booze.
2002-07-17 10:06:49 PM  
I found this out in an episode of Rescue Rangers.
2002-07-17 10:35:45 PM  
Bonobo62 - As anyone who is a chocoholic can tell you, it is not just a made-up word.
2002-07-17 10:44:37 PM  
This is not news. I'm thirty now, and I actually learned this in the second grade (I'm not kidding).
2002-07-17 11:36:35 PM  
GreasyP: So what's chocohol? Wouldn't the correct term for a chocolate addict be "chocolatic"?
2002-07-18 12:50:12 AM  
RaoulDuke, that calendar you linked to made me hurt my eyes trying to figure it out )

Now if someone would link to or post the rules of the death-match ball game they played I could go to bed happy.
2002-07-18 12:50:50 AM  
Not necessarily with the poster of course.
2002-07-18 07:38:52 PM  
it amuses me that there are some people out there stoopid enough to pay for continuing research into this kind of thing.. only in america :-) this sh14t has been common knowledge for at least 20 years if not longer... hands up any brits in the house who've been to CadburyWorld and seen the display, drunk the chili-laden stuff that they think is close to how the aztecs liked it?


oh and they had big flying condor statues made out of solid gold, too. maybe we should investigate that.
2002-07-18 07:42:07 PM  
mmmmm.... chocohol..... there's a bar in upper bangor that sells 20 different varieties of chocolate vodka shakes. how's that for chocoholic's heaven?
(not sure quite how they make it, but it's thick goopy brown stuff... there's plain, white, dark, mars bar, snickers, etc...)
