It looks like most Texans want to stay in Texas.  I am fine with that.

Well, as a Texan, I love the state itself. It's just the conservative, Bible-thumping rednecks that piss me off. I really need to move to Austin.

Can't imagine why Hawaiians wouldn't want to move . . .  ;)

Explore Asian Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, 7.05-Ounce (Pack of 6) = $28.89
Explore Asia Organic Black Bean Spaghetti 2 Lb. = $23.72

6 packs at 7.05 ounces per comes out to 2.65 lbs.

So which is the better weight/cost ratio?

I'm guessing it's 2.2 lbs.  Doesn't make sense that the pounds is an even number when the packs are 7.05 ounces or 200g.  1kg would be 2.2 lbs, 2 lbs would be an odd number at 907g.

Unless the products are coming from the UK. We have to list the metric measure first but in a quintessentially British bit of bloody mindedness we kept selling the imperial quantities while listing the metric first, even though the metric ended up being weird.

But the smaller packs are 200g even with the imperial a weird number, so it still doesn't make sense unless the large and small packages are made for different markets.

Nope. Did some looking around. The 2lb. isn't individually packaged. It's just 2 lbs pasta. You can see here:

After any kind of social interaction, I NEED to be alone. I need to be able to focus on my thoughts and process things. How often I need it depends on who I'm dealing with, but no matter who it is, I will need it eventually. It's not about getting sick of the person, it's about centering myself and undergoing mental maintenance. It's about resting after the unusual effort social interaction requires of me. If I don't get that time, I will begin to resent everybody around me. My girlfriend understands that I need this, but she doesn't understand it. I always worry that she takes it personally.

Indeed. I'm experimenting with healthier alternatives to regular pasta. This came recommended by a customer.

That is the definition of an introvert.

I thought I'd better make sure that I explained that my 'Like' was trying to say "that's how I am" [even moreso since the head injuries, granted, but I was like it before to a large degree... much like my father]... I was not 'Like'ing that you are concerned about your girlfriend's understanding.

If you've explained to her, then I'd try to take her at her word that she understands at least enough to grant you that space rather than push the issue.  My ex and I arranged that one of us would remain out of the house in the evening on a set day each week, and the other out of the house on a different night (wouldn't make much sense if we were both out and apart on the same night ;)).  She didn't fully understand my need for 'away/me-time' either, but still was willing to work with it.  [Our ultimate split had nothing whatsoever to do with that, given your post I figured I'd better say that just to be clear.]
