One of the best episodes of King of the Hill, hands down, was the one where they reveal that Hank’s cousin Dusty is Dusty Hill of ZZ Top.
You’re certainly not alone here. Consumer preferences are often tied to season, and I’m definitely in the same boat as you are in terms of my own hot weather alcohol preferences. We’ve spent a lot of time drinking Albariño and sauvignon blanc this summer. Read more
I’ve flown business to Japan twice (insanely inexpensive frequent flier miles deals) and both times was served elaborate, multi-course meals that ended with custom-made ice cream sundaes served in glass bowls. The business class experience changes dramatically depending on the airline and the length of the flight.
Amazingly, this does seem to be the actual product. The name (from what I can tell) is supposed to evoke that moment when you look into the tired, dead eyes of the flight attendant serving you and select from their limited range of factory-farmed proteins. And people are buying these things! Voluntarily!!!
That’s not $3 a dozen for the consumer, that’s $3 a dozen wholesale. So, you’re really looking at $6-8 a dozen for the consumer.
Delivery services charge fees regardless of whether they actually provide the delivery. If you want to support your favorite businesses, call the restaurant directly and place the order outside of the digital platform. And ask them what their number is: some delivery companies list their own numbers on Google, instead… Read more
Whoops, thanks for that! It has been fixed.
Dude, if you had three maids, you were rich.
A couple of years ago I saw something (likely on Twitter) about how one way to prevent this type of loss from happening is to spend time taking video of family members (parents, grandparents, aunties, whoever) making the foods of our childhoods. I think it’s a fantastic idea and I certainly wish I’d done that with my… Read more
I am very curious about what this dish might have been. Does your grandmother come from a particular cultural background, or from a certain geographical region? =Replicating the exact recipe through research would be a basically impossible task, but we might be able to narrow this down and try to figure out what the… Read more
The demise of the seven layer burrito may be the only time in my entire life I’ve actually felt sad that a fast food menu item got axed. That shit was legitimately good!
Do you think this is supposed to be a knowing nod in the direction of Snow Crash, or just product placement run amok?
This replaces the wholesaler system. By bottling their own milk these companies drive wholesalers out of business. This means that grocery stores can charge less for milk than they ever have before (because they’re spending less money for it), which in turn squeezes farmers even tighter. It creates less competition,… Read more
Agreed, although I think the implication here is also that farmers would make even less than they had previously because this will lead to market consolidation. With fewer companies to sell milk to farmers will have less leverage when it comes to negotiating how much they charge.
