    A weather guy up here was explaining how the terrain of the Carolina's differed from Florida or the Gulf Coast and it would exacerbate the inland rainfall as the storm front hits the mountains, in turn, making mudslides potentially worse. Scary stuff.

    How come the air quality has become to the point that you can see what you're breathing?

    It's the only Mexican restaurant I've ever heard of, and only because Taco Bell featured(product placement?) in the movie Demolition Man.

    Not many Mexican restaurants in this part of the world anyway.

    Well the Taco Bell in Demolition Man wasn't exactly like the Taco Bell of today, to say the least. ;)
    But it certainly was brilliant product placement-
    Taco Bell is about as Mexican as US Chinese restaurants are Chinese.

    Admittedly, I’m spoiled. I grew up in Phoenix, Aridzona, with lots of terrific Mexican food (not so much Asian at that time, though). And I now live in the SF Bay Area, a cross-cultural melting pot that features tons of great places to eat a plethora of varieties of food. While I’ve yet to find a Mexican restaurant that can rival some favorite haunts in Phoenix, there are about six very good taquerias within a ten-minute drive, and any of them is better than Taco (H)ell. Although there’s two of those in that same driving area, as well. :(

    I’m sure far too many places in the US don’t have a good Mexican restaurant, though (much less one with any brand recognition outside of the locale), so it makes sense in some ways that people would vote that way. Besides, it’s not as though there is a quality nationwide chain of Mexican restaurants anyway, so that’s more reason TB would land in the top spot when the votes were counted.

    But it’s still wrong and sad. ;)

    After I looked at the cartoon I posted in Funny Pictures, I had this random thought: Why are they called “unicorns?” I mean, they have one horn, so I get the uni, but why not “Unihorn?” After all, it’s not as though they have an ear of corn growing from their head, right?

    Been reading Dumbing of Age for now, a really long time, onto book number eight.

    I orginally found it on accident, but it is good to know how long the comic been up on line.

    There’s nothing like eating and thinking you just bit down on a bone and you reach in your mouth and pull out a 4-penny nail.

    Then you cringe thinking about what it might have been like had the nail been in another plane...

    There are lots of memes, typically associated with getting older, about walking into the kitchen or your bedroom and forgetting why you went there.

    But you’ll know you’ve really lost it when you go into the bathroom and can’t remember why...

    I've been reading that comic online since the beginning. I think I got into Willis' comics near the beginning of UnPacked.

    I read way too many online comics, now that I think about it...

    "No matter who wins the bidding war, Sky subscribers are likely to face higher prices, Ms Enders says."

    As if Sky weren't gouging enough out of their customers already. And I hate the way they buy up all the premium sports events, effectively taking them away from established TV channels.
