Hmmm...I think not. Ok, the obsessive compulsion to test the compression strength of M&M'* is pretty bad. To admit to it publicly takes a truely sick mind. But then again, this is the BonnevilleClub..where sick minds hang out all the time.

Pass me another handfull of M&M'*...I think I got the hang of this crush test thing....

So was this a scientific test, with force meters? Wouldn't a right handed person be able to put more force easier with the fingers of his right hand, thus making it appear as if more force was needed with the left? Which hand was used for each? What was the control? What if you're are subconsciously biased toward a particular color...say...yellow. How would that affect the test? I demand a retest! The test is flawed, I tell you.....flawed!!!

Where'* Stan? Stan - put down your thermocouples for a while, and get on this!

I do stuff like crush food with force meters for a living. Give me about a week and I'll find out which color m&m'* are manly and which are femme.

So, who wants to place bets?

I couldnt even do this if i tryed, my hands are always sweating and I would more likely melt the M&M'* than anything else.

Agrazela - Hmmm...not sure on the bets, but I'm getting ready to go back to my red M&M avatar, just in case!

cool points have a monetary worth of 1/100th of a cent. if you manage to accrue 100 cool points, send me a self-addressed and stamped envelope along with return postage, and i will be happy to send you a genuine lincoln penny.
