    Random FOODEE Thoughts and Confessions

    Last night I opened up a bottle of Guinness Draught beer and went to take a quick sip out of the bottle right before pouring it into a glass. I noticed that the beer made a weird sort of glug glug sound and didn't seem to pore out of the bottle into my mouth like other beers. I initially...

    The Best Pizza I've Ever Had Was..........

    I'm not usually into "gourmet" this or that kind of food, but there is a gourmet pizza restaurant in the city of Redlands, CA where I work that had one pizza that I really like. The pizza is called the "Brando", the ingredients are: Cream cheese, pesto sauce, pepperoni, sausage, cashews, angel...

    Is BBW the most PC term?

    I know this is bit of a thread derail, but I've been wondering this for a while... Maybe I'm naive of how the magazine business works, but I would think you are sitting on a potential gold mine here owning the copyright to BBW Magazine? I imagine you have decent advertisement revenue income...

    Is BBW the most PC term?

    You would be amazed Conrad, many of the younger people have no idea where the term "BBW" came from. Even if you attempted to enforce your trademark on the term "BBW", court precedent regarding words that become popular terminology such as "xeroxing" (from Xerox) and "tivo-ing" (from Tivo) have...

    A Punk and New Wave Thread

    Here's one a classmate reminded me of recently... although this is more Ska than Punk or New Wave. A flashback to 1985: Fishbone "Party at Ground Zero" ...

    The Thread for Random Single Confessions Part ... I don't know what Part

    I confess to such levels of geekyness that I enjoyed soldering together a RS-232 serial port loopback test connector today that is wired for testing ports with DTR/DSR hardware flow control on or off! :)

    Return of Dimensions?

    I remember when those Dims PDFs of which we speak first came out... I held my breath that Dimensions would be reborn in digital form... After three years passed, I stopped holding my breath because I turned blue and almost died... Those PDFs came out about eight (?) years ago. Seriously...

    Living Green.

    Thank you Fat Hiker and Mr. Bio for the apple tree information! Also, beautiful pics Bio! A student from the Physics Dept. was recently at Joshua Tree and said that the desert out that direction was also awash in colorful, blooming flora. If you are thinking of making another trip out to the...

    What do you smell like?

    When I met my birth brother for the first time, we discovered that each one of us had a super power. He never brushes his teeth and has no cavities, and I can easily go for more than a week without showering and not stink. Although after 2 weeks of not showering, I've been told that I smell like...

    Living Green.

    Bio, I've been meaning to ask you this... When the oak tree fell into our back yard it obliterated most of our trees including the apple tree, which is now reduced to a stump and a series of offshoots which were cut off. Can apple trees regenerate from their trunks / roots and if so is their a...
