Thanks… @Loke

I always thought staples meant certain common or standard foods, for example potatoes or rice, but i think i understand now… this is more like all sorts of things the country is known for. Like the things people visiting here would expect to see. :slight_smile:

I completely misunderstood the word, so i got very confused with all people’s answers.

Have you ever seen that movie Concussion? It’s based on a true story. All these football players were going insane. A local coroner in Pittsburgh figured out that these football players were going nuts from brain damage due to repeated head trauma.

These guys were having hallucinations and I think even delusions. A couple of ex football players committed suicide

I wouldn’t let my boy play football or hockey
