    Alright, while Zarel's gone and the simulator is down, we're gonna run a prediction tournament on which groceries Zarel is going to buy. Winner gets voice or something, idk. Don't hold me to that.

    Rules:

    1) Don't copy someone else's list, it has to be different.
    2) Don't just list off every single food item you can. Those won't win. You gotta vary it up. Purposefully include and exclude stuff.
    3) You don't have to list specific brands. If you want to, go for it, but it's not required.
    4) Make sure to VM user Aldaron when you get a chance (you cannot win without giving Aldaron a VM). He gets so lonely =(
    5) caw

    Hop to it, may the best winner win B)

    1) Orange juice - I don't think Zarel's much of a morning man, but it's possible that he tries to be. No better way to be a morning man than with some fresh OJ. Might get some bacon here; not sure. Oh cereal for sure too. Probably like Cheerios or Cinnamon Toast Crunch, imo.

    2) Eggs. Bread. Milk. Zarel's got the basics down, and I don't think he's gonna miss this opportunity to stock up on the essentials. This might include restocking sugar, salt, and spices as well.

    3) Pizza. He's probably a pretty decent cook, but as a college kid and a creator of a simulator, unfreezing one of these bad boys on a pizza cooker he got for Christmas or something isn't far off. My second guess for frozen food woulda been chicken nuggets, but pizza is classic.

    4) Gum. It's essential and Zarel's a classy guy. I'm guessing stride or orbit but he may pull an upset here. Not quite sure.

    5) An entire tube of cookie dough. This is definitely my wild card, but I think it's gonna pay off in the end. Zarel has to get energy somehow, and I'm bettin' dollars to donuts on this one.

    Um, he's going to buy Pokeballs and Potions, duh.

    in actuality, probably
    1) milk - yummy
    2) water - healthy
    3) Cheetos/Doritos/etc; some kind of cheesy junk food - Yummmmy (two extra ms)
    4) Candy; M&Ms/chocalate bars

    Im reasonably sure he is buying life insurance, an inflatable raft, a remote-control helicopter, human meat, rawst berries (for pie), PO, a firearm, a fireleg, miscellaneous souls, and a woodchipper.

    I'm betting he'll get three Milky Way bars.

    Also everyone should VM Mikel all the time always asking about PS's status. He really loves spreading the word.
