    (or woman :becool:)

    must surely be Oatibix.

    I just had one for lunch (buried under Rice Krispies) and I had to keep adding milk - must have soaked up several litres.

    Do they use them for flood defences? They should.

    How do I edit the title to say 'absorbent'?

    Nearly posted a very sarcastic reply!

    Then I thought I'd better try again first.

    You have to go "advanced", y'see

    Thanks!

    oatibix - as used by NASA

    I'd actually find a list of materials *not* used by NASA more interesting

    Maybe Oatibix are an initial attempt at combating the effects of global warming? Instead of Icebergs at the Poles we could have Oatibergs?
     
  8. OT I think this topic is becoming... very absornent

    incidentally, they are also the most boring food known to man. I love weetabix, and like porridge, which is just oats anyway. But oatibix...eurgh. Its like chewing on a spongy sort of cardboard. Which perhaps also explains the absorbency...

    I'm banned from eating the Oatibix Minis. Especially on space stations. They're so moreish that I eat loads. The resulting trouser eruptions are quite, quite staggering (and I speak as one who is generously blessed in the foul emanations department).

    I agree Dave5N, they're pretty amazing! I do like them though.

    My Wife's pockets must rate up there somewhere, unsure quite how much of my cash seems to disappear in there and it can't be by any other means (evaporation / osmosis etc.).

    Can't stand Oatibix - sorry - it should be banned along with coffee and tea.

    Definitely disgusting - I'm the same as you, I liked the sound of the combination and they were half price in my local when they were released so I bought 4 boxes. Couldn't even get through one.

    That's why you gotta cover them in Rice Krispies, then sliced banana 'cos it's good for you, then Bran Flakes to stop the Rice Krispies floating away.
