    What is this "snow" of which you speak?

    I couldn't tell you this year... but in previous years it is white and fluffy. It usually only comes when my fingers get cold.

    It is like drinking... just eat more. That will help the potential explosion halt for a while...

    I do know that drinking more isn't helping. I just had a giant mug of tea and I think it just made all the rice expand even more.

    Isn't it weird that people will sit and drink when they're not thirsty just to get drunk but they won't sit and eat when they're not hungry. Are there any "foods" designed and made specifically to get people intoxicated? And I don't mean rum-soaked breads and vodka in a watermelon, I mean the only time the food exists is in an alcoholic form?
    I burned down the church to atone for my transgressions.

    No, its not wierd. If you drink alcohol and are not thirsty the payoff is a (presumably pleasant) buzz followed by consequences (lots of potty breaks and maybe a hangover). If one eats when not hungry there's no payoff but there are consequences.

    google "Alice B. Toklas brownies" and there you will have your answer.

    I don't think it's weird but it's also not accurate. Many people have food addictions and eat regardless of whether they are hungry. also- I've seen enough movies to know that when you are depressed you shuold eat lots of ice-cream regardless of the hunger aspect.
