These guys seem to gather a few places. I tend to use Veoh when possible and hate Megavideo's time-limit... (their videos are usually good quality though)

Heh, they aren't that bad either. Ahlgrens Bilar are better, but, then again, they haven't been Swedish since 1993...

They are good, the best candy you can possibly is, however, Fazer sweet liquorice *yummy*. Unfortunately the only place you can find it in bigger quantities is on the ferries that go between Sweden and Finland...

What's the sweet liquirice? Give me a picture and I recognise it.

Real probably. Fazer only makes EXCELLENT stuff. It's the God of All That Is Sweet.

It has happened ... Google just failed me  :bigeye *restart world*

You usually buy it in sticks packed in white boxes with this face [spoiler][/spoiler] upon it (politicly correct, anyone?). Previously you could find it them in smaller pieces but now you just find the sticks (that, according to Viking Line, are called "Lakritsipatukka" in Finnish).

Damn it, now I want candy

Wow... I'd be wary of eating much of that. Looks like a steroid, and acts like a steroid. Also:
Quote
Recently researchers have demonstrated that doses of licorice root extract, delivering the constituent glycyrrhizin in amounts similar to that contained in standard medical doses of the root, rapidly and significantly lowered levels of circulating testosterone in males.[6]

I've always hated licorice, anyway.

Most licorice candy isn't real in the states because of this.  It's just licorice flavored corn syrup.

Q X+3: I have a project coming up soon in school where we are supposed to speak for about 12-15 minutes about something in an individual or population that is interesting from a genetic point of view. Not all that long ago we had a similar assignment where they told us to speak about something that was interesting from a systematic point of view and I spoke about my beloved monotremes. I am not sure if I want to speak about them again (even if they are incredibly cool) and was wondering if anyone here have some nice alternatives. Any ideas?

Genetic point of view, let's see...

How about the fact that most African-descendent males seem to have a much easier time with high notes when singing than their Caucasian equivalents? Start off with Michael Jackson and go from there, maybe?

Well it IS a curious fact... though it's more about the morphology of the skull than anything else (resonance and whatnot).

The fact of the matter is, black people tend to sing better.
