Sounds and video quality reminds me of those horribly outdated science "films" we used to watch in elementary school:

Just made strawberries soaked in Amaretto and drizzled with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Such a romantic dessert...and I have no one to share it with.

Only the ones that melt in water.

Starch-based packing peanuts

In the early 1990s, starch-based packing peanuts were developed as a more environmentally friendly alternative. The starch in the peanuts comes from crop-based sources rather than petroleum-based polystyrene, and is non-toxic. One of the first brands of biodegradable peanuts, Biofoam, is made from the grain sorghum;[3] other brands are made from corn starch.[4] Biodegradable foam peanuts have no electrostatic charge, another benefit over polystyrene. Being biodegradable and nontoxic, they are also safe for humans and pets to ingest accidentally. However, they are not produced in food-safe conditions, and are not recommended for eating. Also, during the manufacturing process, the nutritional value is removed from starch-based packing peanuts. This removes edible components, such as sugars, that would otherwise attract rodents and bugs.[5] Their main drawbacks compared with polystyrene are lower resilience, higher weight (6.5 to 13g per litre/0.4 to 0.8 lb per cubic foot), dust creation, and higher price. Starch-based peanuts are soluble in water, and polystyrene peanuts are soluble in acetone, but not vice versa.[6] Starch based products can be disposed of down household drains with copious amounts of water.

Technically, the polystyrene peanuts are not particularly harmful either, due to polystyrene being relatively safe and also containing so little polystyrene per peanut.

Very nice integration of the exhaust system. I think that it sadly won't make it to production car though.

Reminds me of valentines day a few years back where I was on E46F posting and eating a box of chocolates that my mom got me.
