    Anyone other than me addicted to Sunflower seeds?

    I tell ya, on a hot day there ain't nothin' better to pass the time when you're mowing or working like having a cheek full of seeds to work on.

    That's good stuff.

    I know they're both bad habits, but I smoke when I am in the truck or house and when I get outside I love a good 'ol dip.

    Here in the USA you see 1 in 1000 spitting those things. Back in Europe, 999 out of 1000 spitted them.

    It was very common for a solo businessman to be engaged in selling those seeds, and make big bucks on it.

    American seeds taste discusting imo, you need to find an european store, and buy some professionally prepared sunflower seeds.

    The bad thing is, when you start, you cant stop until they are all gone.

    The only time I make it an effort to buy some, is when I do long distance driving, they keep me from falling asleep behind the wheel.
    Otherwise, I try to stay away from them, as they are addicting.
