      Nicely illustrated point although I'm not sure I agree with his taste in ice cream. Vanila was chocolate chips is much better than the mixed ice cream.

      The protagonist from the PowerPoint presentation does in fact delight himself with rum & raisins ice cream on the weekends. And by rum & raisins, it is no reference to that ice cream flavour, he says, but rather the ingredients: rum and raisins with ice cream on the side. At least that's what he told me, that protagonist chap.

      I'll stick with my beer and edamae on the weekends but enjoying rum while snacking on raisins doesn't sound at all bad.

      Well, that sounds rather gratifying.
