Oh, yeah, I figure I'm good for about six years after a little bag of  
those containing maybe six. If I go for seven years, though, I am  
cognizant of a vague, unidentifiable depletion of quality of life.

My mother claimed to have been the victim of an attack of spontaneous  
combustion or, more likely, one of those airborne sugar explosions you  
sometimes get in candy factories, while snapping a Necco Wafer in half

too) some time around 1924...

I suppose it's better than eating them...
