    DeKay Have you tried the McDonald's McRib? To me it looks way better in ads in relation to how well it actually tastes.

    We don't have a McRib specifically since it's pork and not suitable for Muslims here. But I googled and people are saying our Prosperity burger (that they have every Chinese New Year time) is a similar version of the McRib.

    I don't really like it so much tho probably cuz of the sauce. 😂 And also I'm not a huge fan of beef burgers. I just feel like the burger patties don't make me feel full enough. I have a big appetite. 🙈 I believe they have a chicken version of this too but the chicken patty is also kinda thin.

    Also speaking of McDonald's, ours recently has a bagel breakfast burger and I'm gonna try them this Friday. :P I usually dislike bagels tho or maybe I've never actually had a good bagel. I always see people making a big hoohaa over bagels but they're kinda mediocre to me... Is it just me? 😅 Anyone here loves bagels?

    I agree with your take on bagels: who wants to eat 50 to 60 grams of carbs in the form of white flour, for something that's just a huge ball of bland chewy bread?! If imma overeat on refined carbs to that extreme, at least give me a nice croissant (or three, to reach that many grams of carbs!) Or lovely real Danish.

    There was a bagel I tried once that was different, but it was the size of what they call mini bagels now, and it was a lot thinner in the bread part, and it had a texture so dense and chewy that it was a lot like an authentic German sourdough pretzel. The kind that gives your teeth and jaws a workout but is very satisfying and has a more complex taste than just the bland kinda tough white bread that those gigantic US mainstream bagels have.

    If I am going to eat such a massive amount of white flour in one sitting, it better be something divine, like great Belgian waffles, pain au chocolate, or something like that.


    Completely unrelated but about food: I am going on a trip out of state this weekend for training, and there's a pit BBQ place in walking distance to my accommodations.

    And I'm dying inside because I called ahead and the chef told me I could get fall-apart tender all-day pit smoked meat without sauce...but not without the dry rub. And I'm allergic to an ingredient in the dry rub.
    😭

    On the bright side, there's an Asian market and a Starbucks nearby, so I could hole up in my room taking up the entire king bed, having gourmet treats and a movie marathon.

    Ahhh, I so want to bake a Danish soon!! 😍😍 Still haven't had one yet.

    That's good to know that at least your have the Asian market and Starbucks near the training place! I know your much it stinks to not be able to eat somewhere due to allergies or restrictions. I remember I was at an awards event one time but the food they served was not halal so I had to just sit there with the food in front of me the whole night and since it was at dinner time, I basically didn't eat dinner that day. Went home starving and went to bed. 😭😭 But I just looked at it like I was doing intermittent fasting. 😂

    Cool. 😄 Let me think... Pacific Rim? (Although I don't remember anyone marrying a brain in that).

    My last one was this:

    A team of people doing science stuff suddenly have to go home, but they leave one person behind and don't realise. He has to survive by growing food from his own poop and sending emails whilst listening to a lot of disco music.

    Yes!! But it's Pacific Rim 2 where one of the scientists from the first movie got mind controlled by the alien brain. 😭

    Let me guess yours. Is it The Martian? I don't remember the disco part tho. 😅

    @DeKay you are correct! 🙂 Yes, watched it recently and the only music he's left with on Mars is his commander's playlist which turns out to be old disco music.

    Oh cool, I was almost there with your description then! Ah yes, now that I remember more of the plot of Pacific Rim 2 it does ring a bell.

    Nope. But I guess it's not really a huge thing over here... 🤔

    Not really on the Black Friday thing. If I planned a big purchase about that time I would scan for a good deal, but a stampeding crowd in the ecstasy of end-stage capitalist desperation isn'ta safe place to be.

    In the US, being in crowds is even more dangerous than other places because the US cherry picks when to protect the right to live.

    I’ve never been into the Black Friday thing. I have a love/hate relationship with crowds. It all depends on what is going on whether or not I’ll deal with it.

    @DaniRose2143 yeah, I had to bite ny tongue so hard not to say anything more than I did.
    I was actually at a Wal mart last night and had a queen feeling going in, felt my danger sense going off and found myself scanning faces and thinking about what I would do if someone opened fire.

    I have never had that happen before but when I heard about Virginia this morning I got the chill down my spine.

    Even if everyone un the US carried a loaded gun and we had a ghastly amount of accidental fatalities because of it, that would still not make it possible to stop this epidemic because people who intend to do mass shootings do not expect or want to come out of it alive. They are usually committing " suicide by cop" if they can, or they do not care about going to prison.
    The idea that everyone being armed would prevent this does not hold true for the people desperate and deranged enough to do it because they do not care about the possibility of being shot back at so an armed populace is no deterrent.
    Pretending that mass shooters are rational enough to not mass shoot if they figure everyone else is armed too is lunacy. They want to be gunned down, usually.
    Or else they want to commit mass murder and any consequence is worth it to them
    Either way, everyone carrying guns is not some magic solution, it just means moms get accidentally shot by their toddlers (this has happened), siblings get shot by other siblings, and on and on, a death toll of innocents that even surpasses that of the mass shootings that the "just arm everyone" argument is intended as an answer to.

    The only way to stop this is to stop it being so easy to kill so many people in such a short time. It doesn't mean keeping hunters from hunting or people from carrying revolvers, if everyone couldn't get their hands on a sprayer.

    @ignominiusrex Sadly the scanning faces and identifying escape routes is something I’ve done for a long time. It’s now so bad I just stay home whenever possible.

    If my job wasn't federal, my dream would be to go somewhere saner.

    I'm not entirely sure when Black Friday is. UK shops seem to have been saying Black Friday deals for the last few weeks!
    Have never been on the actual Friday; was put off a few years ago after seeing some of the public's behaviour on the news (Fighting for a TV? Camping outside in a mile long queue at 6am in the morning waiting for the shops to open? Nah, I'm good thanks).

    I like playing in snow. Falling backwards into deep snow and making an angel after shoveling is especially fun.

    I love playing in the snow, especially seeing what sculptures I can make (last one was a snow poodle), but my area hasn't seen more than an inch of snow for a few years now. 😭
    One time there was a thick soft layer if snow with a thick sheet of ice on top that cracked when you walked on it; great for making rooves for little snow houses or an icy stone henge type arrangement.

    What is the best movie marathon for the holidays?

    The Santa Clause and The Santa Clause 2. We shall not talk about number 3. Right now, they have a series on it too. :D So I'm stoked on that.
