Re: Childhood Defining Foods

Grilled cheese sandwiches, Twice baked potatoes, Chicken Kiev, Goulash. Also, I fondly remember getting food from the fast food chain Hot N' Now when I still lived in Michigan. Doubt anyone here knows about them, they are extremely regional. They had a 'Trojan Burger' on the menu, which was always g...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hello, I'm Aaron. I'm 28, live in Maryland and work technical support for a living, night shift. I've lived in Maryland for about 2 years, though I'm just a transplant from the Midwest. Michigan is where I grew up and spent most of my life. Oh and my username is borrowed from the game Dragon Age: Aw...

Re: Today I Made:

The other day, I made a cheesecake. It was the first time I've attempted to make one, and it came out quite edible. The top of the cheesecake cracked however, and the graham cracker crust I made didn't turn out like I planned. It was a delicious culinary experiment though, and one I plan to attempt ...

Re: Favorite XKCD character?

White beret fellow . I like the open heart. It's charming in that kind of "so happily stupid and yet so profound" kind of way. Plus, you have to admire a man with a healthy love of Bakeries. Baked goods rock. Dangit, now I want a croissant. I second the White Beret guy. For an original vo...

Re: I Shouldn't Have To Say This

Yeah, it's definitely possible they simply sped off. It was just strange, because we weren't that far behind them going around the curve. They may have floored it and gotten out of sight of us.

Re: I Shouldn't Have To Say This

Yes, but you see, you're a reasonable person who understands that other cars aren't spectres that can't harm you. OT, but I actually did see a car that was a spectre once. Or at least it sure seemed that way. My gf at the time and I were driving on the freeway in the wee hours of the morning, we sa...

Re: Confessional Shed - I'll keep a look-out

Confession: I hate washing dishes, and sometimes procrastinate quite a bit on washing them. I feel bad about leaving dirty dishes in the sink though, but I live alone, so if I don't do them, no one else will. It's not I leave them there for a week or anything, but still, I should stop being lazy. Se...

Re: Synesthesia: Do you have it?

This is really cool and makes me wish I had something unique like this. Must make looking at everyday life interesting.

Re: I Shouldn't Have To Say This

I actually asked someone about this once- their mentality is that it slows down the people behind them less without affecting the oncoming car (assuming they are far enough). However while they're right in that while the oncoming car won't have to slow down at all to avoid a collision, they assessm...

Re: I Shouldn't Have To Say This

If you are turning left on a 2 lane road, please do not get all the way into the left lane before starting to turn. I'm going to assume you mean don't go into the oncoming traffic lane (meaning a 2 lane road with each lane going in a different direction), otherwise I'm just confused by this. Yes, I...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I had two distinct dreams last night and both of them were quite strange indeed. In the first dream, I cursed out my grandfather for some unknown reason. I'm not the type of person to do something like that, and I can't think of a reason to do that, so it left me wondering. After that, I had a dream...
