    Happy National Hamburger Day.

    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.

    Milkshakes are easy to duplicate on your own. You can make them even BETTER than whatever they serve, by choosing your absolute favorite ice cream and ingredients, in proportions you like. (Though there was one place at college in California that made excellent milkshakes. Their proof that it was high quality would be to turn the milkshake upside down (!) and show you that it stayed in the cup.)

    What's tougher is finding a cuisine you're fond of that is common where you used to live, but not common where you end up. Here in Austin, it's easy to find good BBQ, Tex Mex and interior Mexican food - and find all the appropriate ingredients in the grocery stores. But the seafood kind of sucks (we aren't on the Gulf), and the pizza and similar cuisines are ok/average. (There's also a huge variety of Asian cuisines, here, with authentic Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian cuisines, though that has more to do with the tech industries attracting workers from those countries.)

    My other homes (where I go to visit family) are in Chicago and Virginia. Virginia has some great seafood, especially in the tidewater area, but their Tex Mex selections suck and Virginia BBQ is quite different from the Texas variety. Chicago has some really great pizza and hot dogs that are really hard to find elsewhere. For Christmas, my brother usually sends me a couple of pizzas from here: https://www.tastesofchicago.com/ It's fun to share them with friends who have no idea what a real Chicago pizza is like. Also, the steaks you can order at a restaurant in the Chicago area are almost always very high quality, even moreso than here in Texas (Texas has a lot more mid-price-level steak places, which colors the impression a bit).
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    I'm pretty sure I just saw a coworker try to hide the fact that he drank a shot of Listerine.

    The one and only time I will say this about anyone: I hope, for his own safety, that he was drinking a colorful and sugary vodka shot.

    Well, at least you and I are both correct. The person I was arguing with was claiming that it can cause your fingers to move, which makes zero sense.

    And hey! Have you not been to the forums in a while or have I not been paying attention?
