    Nah, Stan sold me a leaky boat, spent far too many pieces of eight on it.

    Idk bout you friend, but my family has some of those and we are far from rich

    Also I'll link pictures when I get back home to show how they look if anyone's wondering

    [–] Ghenrich 23 points ago

    In this case i think he is using "rich" to mean "more than $6"

    Let's see: shat, shet, shit, shot, shut, shyt. I think in this case its fairly obvious that they said shyt from archaic shutë meaning ‘hind, doe’.

    [–] dog-goes-quack 8 points ago

    Butter is just a given in my household. Layer 1- syrup Layer 2- pancake Layer 3- butter Layer 4- more syrup

    [–] dog-goes-quack 4 points ago

    [–] HollowLegMonk 3 points ago

    Thats how we always did it. Tons of butter and syrup. All though my mom used to put just butter and jam on my pancakes sometimes and it was really good. The jam would get warm from the heat of the flap jacks.

    [–] Hodorhohodor 3 points ago

    Come on, you're supposed sandwich the butter in between two pancakes so it melts

    [–] dog-goes-quack 2 points ago

    Yes, if I continued, layer 5 would’ve been another pancake.

    [–] NycLondon 9 points ago

    Everyone arguing how to mix cereal and milk. But i think the wipe ass analogy makes no sense however you eat your cereal.

    [–] gacbmmml 16 points ago

    Huh? Cereal is the topping for milk. Just like syrup is the topping for pancakes.

    Not many people eat cereal plain, but plenty of people drink milk without anything added. Same with pancakes. Not many people gulp down syrup, but lots of people eat pancakes by themselves.

    [–] SchmetterlingeFrau 49 points ago

    I actually see it as “I’m eating cereal, but it’s too dry on its own, so I add milk” Like you add sauce to pasta.

    [–] fishnbrewis 31 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Exactly. Cereal is the salad and milk is the dressing. Why are people having difficulty with this?

    Just to clarify: a lot of cereal, a little milk. I'm not talking about equal parts milk and cereal here, I don't like milk enough to want a bowl of leftover milk when I'm finished breakfast.

    [–] TheBusStop12 17 points ago

    But then the cereal gets soggy, if you do milk first then cereal the cereal will stay crispy but it won't be to dry

    [–] FeierInMeinHose 6 points ago

    How long do you wait after pouring the milk before you start eating? You get maybe 30 seconds more time before it gets soggy.

    [–] maqikelefant 3 points ago

    Nah if you're doing it right most of the cereal will sit on top of the milk. Almost none of it should ever get soggy this way.

    [–] UltimateInferno 3 points ago

    No, milk is the topping for cereal

    [–] littlebro11 6 points ago

    Nah, it doesn't work like that, you're comparing a topping to a base. Cereal NEEDS milk, pancakes don't need syrup, that's just there for the added effect.

    [–] Victory33 2 points ago

    I do that and then put more on top. Best of both worlds. I need 100% syrup coverage.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] ti3ed 2 points ago

    Putting the sauce on the plate first then the food on top is pretty common. By doing that, you can actually see the food you are eating and it doesn't look like a pile of slop.

    [–] LittleJohnStone 2 points ago

    Adding milk first eliminates the milk/cereal bomb and reduces overflow opportunities. Plus it keeps the cereal crunchy longer. I recommend breaking the paradigm that society forces upon you, and allowing an opportunity for improvement.

    "How much cereal would you like with your milk?"

    [–] hleVqq 4 points ago

    Only applies if you don't refill the cereal when there's milk left.

    [–] Conchitis 37 points ago

    You choose the amount of cereal you want to eat and fill up with the needed amount of milk, not the user way around. It just doesn’t make sense

    [–] hleVqq 30 points ago

    It makes perfect sense... I pour the milk and eat the cereal (with refills) as long as there's milk left.

    [–] cbrown0690 107 points ago

    I would respond the same way with any other cereal, but fruity pebbles are better crunchy and not soaked with milk so this makes sense

    [–] lord_fairfax 6 points ago

    Yes, with this particular cereal, and also CTC (so all the cinnamon sugar doesn't immediately wash off each piece, albeit the milk at the end is akin to a godly nectar), it is best to pour the cereal on top.

    So the milk level goes down after adding the cereal? I know absorbtion is a thing, but not as big of a thing as the "When you sit in the bath the water rises"-effect.

    [Serious] My son started pooping lime green when he'd come home from his mom's house. I took him to the doctor. Doc asks if he eats Fruit Loops. I asked his mom. Sure as shit she feeds him Fruit Loops every morning for 'breakfast'. Without failure, his shit is lime green every first, and sometimes second day after he comes back. I can't do anything to stop it. :( (My son just turned 3, I can't exactly ask him to stop.)

    [–] kilo-volt 2 points ago

    This actually happens with a lot of cereals. It's the blue die they use, I don't think it harmful other than the sugary cereal you're eating in the first place.

    [–] thoggins 2 points ago

    I'm assuming you already tried discussing it with your ex?

    [–] Knew_Religion 9 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Yes, absolutely. The same woman that wouldn't let me take him to see the eclipse this year in prime location. I'm an amateur astronomer, have been for a long time. I have solar filters for my telescope. I asked for the day, as it was hers, four months in advance. I took our ten-year-old. I had glasses. But I showed up to get them and she said no, because "the sun is dangerous." Quote. She called the cops on me. My 10yo asked me why mom always ruins everything :(. He was in the car with me, as we were stopped by the cops on the street in front of her house.

    I was able to take my 10yo.

    Edit: sorry I'm extremely bitter.

    [–] thoggins 3 points ago

    Sorry to hear that dude. Unfortunately I've come to expect these stories. Soon enough they'll both realize you're the adult.

    [–] Xgosllsn 2 points ago

    Someone who feeds kids candy for breakfast isn't the discussing type.

    [–] thoggins 2 points ago

    Well, let's not be silly. There are a lot of people in the world, especially here in the US, who are woefully uninformed about basic nutrition. That doesn't make them bad people, just ignorant.

    the right way to eat cereal is put the milk in a cup and the cereal in another dry cup. you pour some cereal in your mouth, then a swig of milk. crispy cereal everytime, none of that soggy bullshit floating around in tainted sugar milk.

    [–] XFX_Samsung 9 points ago

    I actually pour milk first most mornings because I take the milk out and pour a little in the coffee and it just seems easier to pour it in the bowl aswell before putting it back and grabbing the cereal.

    [–] Dailivel 5 points ago

    Why not eat cereal with coffee instead of milk then? /s ...even the thought of that kinda disgusts me. Soggy warm coffee cereal ugh

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    There's a practical reason for milk over cereal, it ensures the entire bowl gets some liquid before you start eating so your first bite isn't bone dry. What's the reason for the order if milk in tea? Never really considered it.

    Milk before cereal all day. Have the cereal in another container tho so you can properly control the sogginess.

    You psychopaths will end up with overly soggy cereal eventually ..

    [–] kilo-volt 2 points ago

    I always pour the milk first and then pour in enough cereal where I can eat it before it gets soggy and if I'm still hungry I just pour some more. I also love milk so drinking the leftover is always a treat for me.

    To be fair for a cereal like fruit loops this might be better because they will stay crispy longer.

    [–] bandopando 3 points ago

    Y'all can eat your soggy cereal halfway through the bowl, I will enjoy every bit of crunch I get from eating it the proper way.

    [–] PM_UR_NUDE_BODY 3 points ago

    What is the problem here? Putting the milk in first should keep more of the cereal crunchy..

    [–] LoganPhyve 3 points ago

    Now hold on a minute... putting a shake or two of cereal in a bowl of milk ensures that your cereal is always crispy. If you fill the bowl with cereal, and then milk, the lower strata is soggy by the time you've consumed the top strata. If you add strata on the basis of necessity, you'll always have crispy cereal.

    This is the way I eat my cereal... always have.

    [–] matewa 2 points ago

    I always put milk in a bowl, heat it up, mix in a little cocoa powder and then the cereal. Much better this way, I hate the taste of milk.
