Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I just want to point out how much Chicago sucks based on their "pizza" and the fact that they are particular about hot dogs. Even good hot dogs are inferior sausages. Every place between the Rhine and the Black Sea does vastly superior sausages on a roll.

Re: The Abortion Thread

It is still surprising how shockingly quick and complete the destruction of the RCC's moral authority in Ireland was. They did a lot of the same stuff everywhere, but there wasn't that big of a shift. I take it to be due to their near Monopoly on religion combined with a vast increase in living stan...

Cheddar is the best broadly available cheese in the U.S. for use on stuff and in sandwiches. If the goal is to eat cheese, there are far better cheeses.

I want the NFL ban on kneeling barred by a court by virtue of all the money teams have taken for stadiums. If it works for private colleges, why not for them?

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Comparing a private kitchen to a food cart or restaurant makes no sense. It's like comparing a meatpacking plant and a fishing boat. The private kitchen and boat have looser standards because they have vastly less food and fewer customers.

The NYT article saddens me because it is clear that Peterson is just a dumbass and a con rather than a lunatic.

Also, witches live in swamps? I guess his cultural touchstones are Minecraft and Disney.
