I would have guessed never.

How is Burger King even in this.

Well I haven't had any chicken there lately but I did find myself walking into a Burger King for a late lunch today after having to attend a noon meeting where no food was served. So I had a fish sandwich that turned out to be quite tasty, I have to say, and it was even a little too hot to eat at first. And the fries were just about as good. Who knew?

This is a frequent problem while browsing with Safari on my iPad, but any site with video content does that, certainly not just 11W. I wish there was  setting to make my audio apps override anything on the page I happen to be viewing, but I don't think there is one.

Kid looks really intense. I wouldn't want to run into him while carrying a football. Will be watching for when he gets on the field.

Back in the day I found myself in New Orleans for a conference and lo and behold it just happened to be St. Patrick's Day. I don't know if Mardi Gras takes an encore every year on March 17 but it did that year. (Come to think of it, it was twenty years ago...) Headed down to a famous Irish pub on Bourbon Street--Patrick O'Briens?--with a few other people from my company. 

Next morning the weather was bad, huge thunderstorms. I called the airline, they said all the flights were delayed, just get to the airport whenever and they would get me on a flight. Grabbed an extra hour of sleep before I hit the shower...ah the good old days before air travel got really bad.

Thanks, the NFL team of that name has given their fans plenty of opportunities to use that. But in all seriousness I really don't see any point in this team going to the NIT, assuming that's even a possibility now, and I won't watch if they do.

Well, after all they are one of those big east coast basketball juggernauts, right? Oh, wait, I'm confusing them with Uconn, Villanova, Georgetown, etc. Never mind.

Huge Crowded House fan here, but wouldn't have thought to mention them here. Top shelf IMO.

A good friend of mine was a semiconductor integrated circuit designer, and always referred to this band as "Depletion Mode". Maybe there are a few geeks here who can appreciate that.

Genesis was really two bands. Basically, before and after 1980. I'll admit that I liked both, but I much prefer OLD Genesis.

Saw her at the Greek while chaperoning a gaggle of teenagers. Good shew.

Now if you find a Barry Manilow cover of a Metalica tune - that'll be worth a few bonus Helmet Stickers.

I doubt that one of those exists, but I do recall hearing that Pat Boone recorded a heavy metal album some years ago, may that will work for you SL.

Of course there are those who abuse this but what are you going to do. The various reasons why some benefit even if the extent of their disability isn't obvious have been pointed out.

Where I work there are a ton of people who have "reserved" parking just because they are bosses, or have been there a long time, who knows? I park in a parking structure and spend almost five minutes hiking to my office every morning, but my car likes that better lol. I never pay any attention at all to who is using the handicapped spots.
