    I stole a miracle berry :rolleyes1

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synsepalum_dulcificum

    Took the living with the land boat trip and sat on the far left at the back of the boat. Those tempting little bushes are planted too close to the boat, and there was a mess of berries that had fallen off sitting in the sand left to rot. Now there are a few less :confused3

    They really do work, I ate a lemon wedge after the berry and the sour changed to sweet. Tasted just like sweet lemonade.

    You do realize we can't encourage behavior that violates WDW's rules (in this case, keep your hands inside the boat).

    While I don't condone stealing, I just have to share that we bought some of the Miracle Frooties tablets in October and had a very fun time with them! That is, until an hour later and the acid from the entire lemon I ate came back to haunt me!:rotfl:

    I wonder what Disney uses them for as they don't have much flavor.

    Congratulations. Looking forward to the installation of lap bars on the LWTL cars. Thanks a lot.

    They did! But those berries are loaded with a new drug that makes you go straight to the nearest gift shop and empty your wallet / Credit Cards there! :rotfl2:

    Whenever I ride Living with the Land. I want to touch the sand when the boat first goes into the greenhouse. I dont know why I just want to one time. I don't thought because I am rule follower and am afraid of being ejected from the park.;)

    So CM DID see you take the berry and nothing happened and they didn't say anything to you?!?! I would like to hear this story as that seems unlikely since you not only didn't keep your hands in the boat, you also took something.

    ~I think it's ingenious. And, it's not stealing, but just a simple exercise that demonstrates how one can "live off the land" on "Living with the Land!" :

    ~Now, maybe I can work up the nerve to "liberate" one of those hot peppers. Oh yeah, and perhaps a papaya & mickey tomato, too. I totally *LOVE* the Living w/the Land.

    While the DIS cannot commend acts that "violate" Disney's policies, if we can have a 15+ page thread about some kids stealing the PotC dog keys, we can sure have one about taking a berry.

    Also, I wouldn't really categorize that as "stealing" if Disney let OP walk out with it. I guess it would be the same as taking a leaf off a bush in Epcot.

    We may not see lap bars as a result of op's behavior. Maybe some Oompa Loompa's to roll us away and eject us from the Land.

    :rotfl:

    Did the strawberries taste like strawberries...and the snozzberries taste like snozzberries?

    Wait for it ...... :lmao:

    Ummm ok, I have my moments but may I ask, how will a lap bar keep your hands inside the boat :confused3

    On another note, whenever I read 'lap bar' I think of a "lap bar" which is very un-Disney like. I'm sorry. :sad2:

    Gross on so many levels. Don't know who touched it the first time and made it fall. Scorching case of mouth herpies that touched it and then you ate it. Gross gross gross. Not to mention so not cool.

    Just as an FYI there's some kind of organism in the sand I think it's called something like a neotode. They don't want it to spread that's why you'll see the CMs that are in the sandy areas wearing the booties.

    So you may want to rethink touching the sand.

    I sincerely hope you didn't have any kids around when you did this. I have a hard enough time teaching my kid not to do the bad things we see tons of kids participating in around the parks, I don't need to an adult getting in on the action. :headache:
