htothem -- Is there anything on Earth more wonderful than coffee? Okay, coffee has a real edge on most consumables thanks to its two most wonderful qualities. So let's just assume the following things have next to no calories and are caffeinated:
Macaroni & Cheese.
Chili's Chocolate Lava Cake.
Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.
A fresh, hot, and properly-made bagel.
pooplord -- Jesse's grandma actually lives in Branson, MO. We should visit her, it's true. But what the hell are we going to do when we get there besides eat a meal or two with her and be cordial? Okay, I had heard of and joked about what sort of kitschy awesomeness is to be beheld in Branson, but I never really investigated before. Holy god. Take your pick from the Branson Tourism Website:
And what did roadsideamerica.com suggest for Branson?
eideteker -- Burning Man. No question, just do your thing. Do my THING? Answering questions is my thing, buster.
More like Burnout Man, lolz.
What is "a $360 event for trust fund babies to go and pretend they reject consumerism".
Even though I'm looking at their website, seeing testimonials and ticket pricing structures, I still don't entirely believe that Burning Man actually exists other than to be a punchline about hippies.
Close your eyes. Now picture yourself in a Nevada desert during the heat of late August. You are surrounded by hippies, frolicking about dancing and whatnot. There is not a running faucet in sight. Now breathe deeply and tell me what you smell.
renob423 -- 7-11 is such a god damn ripoff with all the mark up, why do they think anyone would feel sorry for them having to pay so i can use my card? if this does stop will they drop their prices from fucking outrageous to just plain outrageous? GET FUCKED 7-11!
Yeah! Especially you, creepy cashier guy who hits on me so relentlessly every time I set foot in there that I have to decide whether or not what I want is worth it! You get fucked! Get fucked a lot! Please!
Why would they drop their prices? When the public decides a fee for the services they enjoy is unfair, it just disappears. It's not like they have a method behind their pricing structure, they're just greedy!
I dunno, the stuff you go to 7-11 for is pretty cheap: fountain sodas, coffee, candy bars, smokes etc. It's the stuff that you should know better to buy at the grocery store that are really expensive. Consider it an idiot tax.
I'm sure half of those dipshits think they were signing something in support of 7-11 fighting the "unfair" fees they have to pay on their own credit cards.
The forces of entertainment have granted me a crazy person who performs a daily ritual of sorts in the park next to my office building: a gentleman in his sixties, carrying a black briefcase, wearing a black t-shirt, black shorts, black shoes and black socks. Best thing he's done this week:
In the center of the circular grassy area, he stood with a newspaper wrapped around his face, holding it closed against the back of his head. When this was concluded, he went over to the benches and filed the newspaper in his briefcase.
After preparing to sit on a nearby bench and deciding it was insufficient, he walked again to the center of the circle, looked at his watch, and bolted across the street towards the bus station.
Napping on a bench (not the one that was rejected the day earlier) in his usual attire but this time also with a rounded black top hat and large black umbrella.
He took 10 paces from the edge into the center to begin his ritual. However, it's Farmers Market day, so there were people encroaching into the grass. With a series of hand gestures, he motioned them away, as well as nearby birds & possibly one bug.
