    And I had the urge to sort them by color! Would they taste better all in one matched batch? Perhaps the orange and yellow would be perfect together.

    This never happened before I started sorting brass for a friend.:faint:

    I blame society. They made you.

    Oh the places I could go with this. But I did just really laugh out loud reading this. Maybe you should tumble them first.

    I have one of those brass sorting things, I'll check in the morning if it'll work with Fruit Loops.

    I've always felt that I had a rather loose grasp on sanity. If the day comes that I start sorting my breakfast cereals, I'll know that I'm on my way into the abyss of madness.:tongueout:

    It would be a sign of OCD, something I am familiar with. For whatever reason, I spend a lot of time counting the buttons on the TV remove (40, BTW). Perhaps it's because TV is so boring that even counting buttons is more engaging.

    As to sorting Fruit Loops, here is a Lego project for sorting M&Ms:

    Well, for the guy that separates powder by calculating mean surface area of the individual flakes, I think you'd be the natural candidate for this experiment...

    What you don't know about Hoser is that he is a HUGE Flinestones fan. He is known for sitting around at night eating Cocoa Pebbles scheming on ways to get his wife to wear the Betty Rubble costume he got last month after a drunken bender in Vegas.

    Until we see pics, I still contend that Hoser's wife is a 1050.

    Apparently Lizard has meet Mrs. Hoser. So that myth may be BUSTED. It is all Lizards fault that I am sorting brass. He only likes shooting Federal so I sort out my federal for when I shoot with him.

    Lizard's memory? He remembers meeting Mrs. Hoser? Hmmm.... I'm with Zombie, she's not real til we see pics.

    As to the Fruit Loops, well, I'm sure there's a pill for that.

    Did you try stacking them or just bunching them up in different corners?

    The milk will still be polluted with a variety of flavors. It's not like sorting brass, You have to do Fruit Loops BEFORE you pour them in the milk.


    Trying to keep this reloading related. I always sort the brass before loading. You find the bad brass before it hits the machine.

    To quote the Great Communicator, Ronaldus Magnus... Trust but verify. I'll take Lizard's word... for now.

    Stevie - what is the average diameter of the hole in the middle of a fruit loop? Will your teensy cast boolits pass right through?
