On America, In A Very Real Sense, Is Waiting All Day For A Sunday Night That Never Comes, Or, At Least, Comes Only For Those At The Top Of A Ladder They're Increasingly More Successful At Pulling Up Behind Them
I didn't know "whip-smart" meant "obnoxious jerks who aren't funny"
I saw the original years ago and this remake is an interesting adaptation. For one thing it's a lot longer than the original, and the distinct differences between the English and American political systems are addressed in an interesting way. I like it, but since I saw the other one I kinda know how this ends.
Muni has problems, most of which are caused by the fact that politicians routinely loot its money for other departments. It also didn't help that the previous Muni CEO, Nat Ford, was a complete idiot, and also didn't help that Gov. Schwarzenegger and the Democratic Legislature illegally stole all the money from the state transit fund to pay for silly stuff (this affected all transit agencies in CA). Couple that with the fact that people in SF love to talk about being "green" but aren't willing to take responsibility to force the morons at City Hall to make Muni work, and that's why the thing doesn't work as it should.
@Marvin B. Gavorshnik@facebook That's so completely false, it's clear you have no idea what you're talking about.
On We Must Build An Enormous McWorld In Times Square, A Xanadu Representing A McDonald's From Every Nation
I totally agree and have thought of this same idea for years myself. I think people would be impressed at how McDonalds adapts to other countries. the fact you can even have a McD's in India still blows my mind. Well sorta.
also, speaking of Cheetos, more places need to sell the savory-flavored non cheese cheetos they have in Asia. They are really good.
I always found it amusing how people from out of state, particularly super-edumecated liberal types, insist that saying Nev-add-uh is some how "redneck" or "racist." They they wonder why people from said state think such people are condscending, or just flat out jerks for basically saying "all of Nevada is populated by rednecks". OOPS
Reading these books now you wonder if they should be named "Wikipedia Brown"...
this reminds me of a story I read about a bear in Washington state...the bear raided a campsite and drank 2 cases of Rainier Beer (he used his claw to rip open the cans). The funny part was there was some other beer (bud or coors or whatever) that he refused to drink.
McDonalds makes many pork products both in the USA and elsewhere. the have been making sausage mc muffins everywhere, and even make a pork patty big mac in some countries and so on.
personally I like the vegetarian version at the store better than the mc rib, which is too messy to eat, and always makes you feel like you just ate way too much hog anus and hooves and you feel like crap the rest of the day. if they had the plain real ground pork patty burger here topped with bbq sauce I'd buy that instead of this thing.
Lost was great, Fringe has been innovative and fun. Sure, Undercovers sucked but it sucked for a lot of reasons that had nothing to do with JJ and more because it's on NBC and as we all know NBC sucks and has sucked for years. I'll give it a chance, and hey, a chance to watch my hometown portrayed by Vancouver? AWESOME.
