Too salty?

Options
I really don't pay much attention to level of salt unless what I’m tasting is really missing something, or if it’s just really, really salty.  I realize that except in extremes, this is a subjective thing.

So my question, is it becoming saltier around here lately?  Is it too salty?

    Is that what you mean by salty, Tom?  It wasn’t too clear to me.

    Haha - nice meme @JohnInCarolina!  But of course I don’t understand it.  

    I’m not salty, or maybe I’m just not too salty.  

    Salty is in the eye of the beholder?

    No mention of how salty the 3-bears porridge was.

    Being ever PC and not wanting to buffalo a thread not of my creation, I would venture that saltiness is in the taste of the consumer.  I have enjoyed many a varying salt content hair-pie banquet and was never concerned with any relative assessment.  But I'm old and YMMV-  =)

    I once read somewhere that the Navy guys like a pinch of salt added to a standard batch of coffee.  No idea if it’s true.

    That would definitely explain my above enjoyment as I am a Navy anomaly.  I don't and haven't felt a need for coffee, tea or cigarettes thru the duration.    Now bourbon and beer-a totally different deal.
    Caffeine fix today - Diet Coke.
    Back in the day- it was all water as the continuous beverage machine never got close to the Coke/Diet Coke correct taste.
    More than you ever wanted or needed to know.

    I guessing your salt level may be on the lower side judging from the overwhelming interest in this thread
