    Frank !

    US crude oil imports from Venezuela
    correlates with
    Per capita consumption of high fructose corn syrup (US)

    Now, we know why corn syrup is addictive and how to stop that plague !

    The blame is on the Venezuelans.... I knew it, I knew it ! :p

    There were no negative innuendos and intentions in my "joke". You talked about corn syrup in a recent post and as the website I quoted talked about it too, I just took the ball on the hop, so to speak, just seized an opportunity to be playful.

    Yes, just like the so-called "proofs", I regularly hear from the platform, that we're in the last days prove nothing... and just like the sophisms that we can read here and there on the Internet about biblical and spiritual subjects by self-proclaimed teachers...
