So what doesn't give you cancer these days?
“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

Bubble Tea is over-rated anyway.

Looks disgusting to me, so no love lost here as I haven't tried it and this just confirms that I never will.

Yuck.

I'll admit to liking bubble tea, but reading this makes me feel glad that I don't have it more than a few times a year.

Everything in moderation, I guess.

I don't get it. It tastes half-decent. Not worth the price and bubbles or pearls or whatever detract from the taste rather than add to. Without them, it's really just a crappy smoothie.

If someone said to me: Yummy hot french fries in your mouth cause cancer, I'd cry. But something that doesn't taste great to being with? Who cares?

Bubble Tea's actually pretty good IMO. You have to go to one of the popular stores though.
