    Cont the too sweet conversation: I don’t have any foods that trip the too sweet alarm for me, but sweet wines and hard ciders that are just uniformly sugary and sweet do. I can have, like, half of one and be okay, but any more than that and I start to feel the sugar crawling up my throat. It might have something to do with the fact that the sickest I’ve ever been off of drinks was because of an entire twelve pack of angry orchard.

    Yeah my dad can't stand alcohol unless it's sweet in some way. He likes angry orchard and Mike's hard lemonade and spiked sodas a lot and I honestly can't comprehend? I love really hops heavy stuff and bitter drinks way more. Oh, and fireball whisky! Cinnamon is Good

    Oh man this is reminding me of the weird sodas we used to sell at work. Our most favorite customer flavor was cotton candy (blech) followed closely by butter beer and birthday cake. Staff favored jalapeño apple as it was actually crazy good and customers were too put off by the name so we had tons

    In a surprising turn of events, milk thistle tea Good. Has a nice aromatic flavor but sits heavy on your tongue like coffee

    Are phoenix eggs precooked before you eat them?

    I think it depends on at what point in the embryonic development the phoenix fetus (or phoetus) develops fire powers?

    But wouldn't the incubation cook them anyways? If they don't develop fire powers, they need incubation

    But phoenixes are presumably adapted to their own heat, right? If the eggs were cooked by the fire, it would kill the embryo and there wouldn't be any more phoenixes.

    What if you stole one from a nest and yolk and egg white are cooked when you fry em up but the phoetus isn't? How hot is a roosting phoenix? Are they hot enough to cook the bits in the egg that aren't baby? What does the baby eat, how does it move? Is it more of a flash fry when the mom dies instead of a slow roast?

    All of which makes me wonder, do phoenixes reproduce asexually? I feel like they'd be an endangered species

    budgie not actually a bird

    I assume the phoenix chick doesn't cook its own egg because fire needs oxygen, and presumably the phoenix parent isn't being cooked by its own heat, so the egg shouldn't be cooked before it's laid.

    Cooking isn't dependent on flame, though, it's just the high temperature denaturing the proteins. See, e.g., boiling an egg.

    But all this also depends on the version of phoenix life cycle and morphology this one happens to fit, because folklore isn't exactly consistent and the Greek "phoenix" has been syncretized with a bunch of other mythological birds. A lot of the time it isn't always on fire and only burns itself up when it dies.
