Gourmet cat and dog foot.  WTAF?

I suppose this should go in "Things You Often Wonder", but... 

Why can't you get mouse flavour cat food?

Cos cats don't eat mice. They just terrify them for a bit, then rip them apart and leave them in the kitchen.

I still need noise to sleep! I can't stand utter silence at night. I usually have a fan on in the room, purely for the whirring noise. I find it relaxing. 

I still don't like white noise. Reminds me of the 80s when my parents used to hire the babysitter, an go out saying they will be back at 10 and rolling in at 1200-1300 when the 3/4 channels on the tv had finished. Think I'm mentally scared.😆

Cake. I don't get it at all. It's normally way too sweet, too creamy, too yukky. It's full of calories and not a very good meal.

But still people talk it up like it's some sort of pinnacle of dining. You should get a slice for desert. Your wife/gf whatever will make it. People will bring it and people will offer it. 

It's like it's some kind of culturally accepted food for great occations, that's supposed to be liked, despite it's incredibly filling, doesn't have very good flavours and is very unhealthy.

**** that. I'd prefer pretty much anything else.

Yes!  Thank you.  
I think the cake hating minority has to suffer in silence.

 

I guess like people who hate dogs.

Cake is a wide and varying subject though 

I'm really not a fan of a Victoria sponge cake, huge fan of English style non baked cheesecake but can take or leave the baked ones, I'm all over a black forest gateaux and fruit cakes 

The problem I have is the wife loves to make them but she's not crazy good at them... Despite how many times I tell her not to do it and even explain the science of it she will always put a cake in the fridge and it goes dry as a bone

cake isn't a meal, its a treat you have with a cup of tea or coffee

You run three times a week and go to the gym four, why the hell do you care about calories?

Gave you a like as completely agree about cake. Used to get weird looks when I'd refuse some and say I didn't like cake. Same reply every time "what, not even on your birthday". Had to bite my tongue and not say "I just told you I don't like it why the hell would I want it on my frigging birthday you tool!" 

Took the like away due to your last line. Nobody hates dogs. That'd be crazy.

The more you work out the more you care about calories. You don't ruin all the hard work by eating junk. Same reason I have more non-alcoholic beer in the house then I do alcoholic. 

This is the main one I drink if anyone is interested:

Absolutely fantastic, actually beer with the alcohol removed rather than cheap sweet rubbish and only 54 calories a tin. 

Their larger is really good too. 

I've not tried the non-alcoholic cider. That's clearly just apple juice.

I'm sorry, that's just a file under does not compute for me

Hehe, ye. But comedy aside, the less I care about working out, the less I care about calories. The more I workout, the more I care. No idea why.

I agree to a certain point. 

The trend seems to be for cakes massively over coated in icing sugar or butter cream/fondant. 

The middle/topping should be fairly thin, just a smattering of the extra sweet stuff, not loaded on completely overpowering the actual cake itself. 

The trend for these impossible to eat cupcakes with 4 inches of icing on top just baffles me.

Much of how @KenjiOgiwara describes Cake is how I feel about Champagne.

This obsession with it being some kind of special drink and essential for celebrations. It's just shit, it tastes shit and costs a fortune. Whichever ancient marketing guru positioned Champagne onto it's pedestal was a genius, almost (but not quite) as clever as the Guinness marketing team.

I quite like wine, but I'm no expert and I can't taste the finer differences like some do at all. In fact I'm embarrassingly bad at it. But I dare say the less sweet a bubbling wine is, the better.

In my personal opinion champagne and cremant is much much better than prosecco, not that I'd even tell an Italian that.
