To be called ice cream, a frozen dessert must contain a minimum of 10% milk fat: economy brands might have 11 or 12%mf, and super premium ice cream might have up to 16%mf. Less than 10%mf makes it ice milk or light ice cream. Sherbet is a 2% milk fat product, with a lighter texture and refreshing fruit flavours. And gelato is similar to sherbet, but without any fat. Frozen yogurt has a similar texture to ice cream, but has lower fat and an active bacterial culture.

You're both right. Sort of.

Gelato has become a generic Italian word for ice cream, though true gelato contains no cream. The same word is commonly used in English speaking countries to refer to "ice cream" that is prepared in the Italian way. "Gelato" comes from the Italian word gelare, meaning "to freeze."

Sherbet is an extremely simple concept, yet still you Americans do not appear to be able to grasp it.

Has anyone heard of a jar being called a "sealer" or "ceiler" (or other possible spelling)? I'm beginning to think it's another word invented by my family over the years.

Never heard of the term, though it sounds like it would be a term used for Mason Jars.

Necro!

My question: Salvia. Has anyone had any experience with it? It's legal, and a halucinigen, that's about all I know.

You only had to ask your brother... yes, I tried it, but not nearly in high enough quantities. Never get the leaf, it's useless, get a concentrated extract or tincture, the higher concentration the better. Though I have to warn you, the trips can get extreme, do it while there's someone in the room not higher than god in case it fucks up. In fact, I recommend that for all new drugs people try, if you can't find someone whose tried it, at least have someone there you trust.

Google it, or wiki it, the information there is probably better than what I'm telling you now.

from what i can tell, salvia's bullshit. it was really popular with 13-year-olds who didn't know what drugs were but totally saw pot this one time omg. all in all, it's a great placebo.

Salvia Divinorum, in the right quantity/concentration, IS a hallucinogen, and it works for some people. kame's comment that the leaf is useless is also incorrect; a lot of people think the leaf is useless because they aren't using a flame hot enough to ignite the hallucinogenic portion of the plant.

FYI.

Edit to add more basic information:

1) The high is very brief: 5-30 minutes at the most.

2) Typically, the hallucinations are NOT vague and distorting like those experienced with shrooms / acid, but rather concrete shapes and ideas that appear when they aren't really there.

3) Salvia also usually drastically affects your motor skills, so you really really should have a babysitter.
