  1. Montreal makes some good bagels too, but I do prefer the ones in NYC myself They have food in Quebec that isn't poutin?
  2. Chicago has a habit of this kind of stuff. Chicago trys to pass ribs slathered in sauce and cooked in an oven off as "barbecue". I have nothing against them, they taste pretty good, but oven-baked ribs with a bunch of sticky gunk on them aren't barbecue.
  3. Yes, I like my pizza with an extra helping of rust belt desperation and urban blight.
  4. The stuff of nightmares.Additional de-merits for the autotuner use.
  5. Worst commercial going right now.That's outrageous.That is a great spot.
  6. Not really relevant to anything, but the GM of the Surface group was my son's little league coach a couple years ago. Great guy. And he can coach: has won three straight league/city championships.
  7. Given the response to Live and Let Die, you are on your own here.But I agree.
  8. I Fought the Law - The Clash (original Sonny Curtis, the Crickets)
  9. And just to be fair to the Beatles, their version of Twist and Shout is much better than the original.
  10. :goodposting:Live and Let Die - Guns 'n' Roses (Paul McCartney and Wings original)
  11. I just picked this up today.I'm no Apple fanboy either, just curious.about his story.I just finished "In the garden of beasts".What an incredible story. Highly recommend.In the Garden of Beasts is high on my list of books to read next.I like this thread, but it seems very fiction-centric to me. Maybe we should have a non-fiction books thread. I mainly read non-fiction.
  12. I am about 2/3 of the way done with the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. I find the book fascinating, not because I am particularly enamored by Jobs (who was quite a #### in many ways), but because it is such an interesting history of the technology business.
  13. Currently reading My Friend the Mercenary by James Brabazon. It is a pretty amazing memoir that describes the author's experiences as a photo-journalist and documentary filmmaker during the second Liberian civil war. Central to the story is the professional relationship and eventual friendship that developed between the author and his bodyguard, a mercenary and veteran of the Apartheid-era South African Defense Forces' notorious special operations units. The mercenary in question gets involved in a spectacular plot involving West African oil, Congolese diamond mines, and an attempted coup d'etat. It all goes horribly wrong. Great read. My Friend the Mercenary
  14. Horse Soldiers, by Doug Stanton I can't read enough about Afghanistan.
  15. Sooners - The people who started the land run early. Essentially, the nickname is based upon a bunch of criminals. SOONER! sooners = fast squatters?Land Thieves
  16. Yep. All 3 sound the same.All four, actually. But the important thing is that there's a group of mutants out there who can't appreciate the artistic nature of that sentence because they choose to deprive themselves of beauty with their horrendous grating accents.
  17. I am actually kind of surprised that only 60% of the respondents talk funny. I would have figured it would be more like 75%.
  18. No. But crediting or blaming Obama policies for the market's every move is pretty silly.Clearly government policies have an important influence, but some of the claims made by both sides have been assinine.
  19. For June, the Dow fell 3.6 percent, the S&P 500 fell 5.4 percent, and the Nasdaq composite index dropped 6.6 percent. For the second quarter, the Dow lost 10 percent, marking its first drop after four consecutive quarters of growth. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq each fell 12 percent during the quarter.Nasdaq up 46.3% since Obama took office! Much more telling than giving a silly play-by-play everytime it goes up or down a few points. It's all silly. That's the point.
  20. For June, the Dow fell 3.6 percent, the S&P 500 fell 5.4 percent, and the Nasdaq composite index dropped 6.6 percent. For the second quarter, the Dow lost 10 percent, marking its first drop after four consecutive quarters of growth. The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq each fell 12 percent during the quarter.Second worst quarter for the market in five years. Yee-Haw!
