Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Well hell man, now you have me doing research . First thing I dug up out of the university library is a journal called "How Flavor Works", by Nak-Eon Choi. So if anything in this post is [citation needed] then... uh, it's probably that. So, first thing! I was totally wrong about sweetness ...

The thing about actual literal treason is that if Trump goes down, so does anyone else who may have been at all involved in the info leaks or coverup or whatever. It's possible we have to go a few spaces down the list of "who replaces the president when the vice president and secretary of state...
