Traveling on a containership is not better than sex, though it does last longer. @ 10:29 am

So I was talking with my wife (and later Isaac) about generic breakfast cereals the other day. It seems to me that there is a generic form of just about every cereal these days. Even the weird crappy ones that I can't imagine anyone ever buys. There is a veritable cornucopia of generic cereals, one for every cereal except Kix. Kix, and Corn Chex are probably my two favorite cereals. Finding generic Corn Chex is a no-brainer, everyone makes that, but I've never seen a generic Kix.

I wonder if General Mills has some crazy patent on the process they use to make Kix so darn delicious. That's the only reason I can think of as to why there is no generic Kix. Am I crazy? Has anyone ever seen a generic Kix? If so where can I get some! I'm sure part of the reason that Kix is the most expensive cereal you can buy is because there is no generic version.

I smell conspiracy!

Generic Kix is almost a Googlewhack. But it looks like Wal-Mart makes Great Value Silly Corn!

During my search for Silly Corn related information, I found The Empty Bowl -- all cereal, all the time. It's almost as obscurely hardcore as BevNet.

They must have gotten the technology from the aliens when we went to the moon.

Or

They come from elves
