Krystal Burgers Those nasty little burgers are downright delicious.

I was warned against ever trying that place because apparently they can't even come close to comparing to White Castle, much as they like to think they can. Disclaimer: The person who warned me and I are clearly from the north and are biased sources.

On topic: White Castle. I wish I had one within a 20-mile radius that I could go to without fear of being shot. Unfortunately, I don't, so I don't get to have them anymore. But they're just so good.

Sliders are good. White Castle and Crystal are tiny little balls of grease and gnarliness. Truly good sliders are made at home with 80/20 ground chuck and potato rolls. Or if you're near Salina, Kansas, just go to the Cozy Inn.

Much as I hate to admit it, the best sliders are over the river, in New Jersey. White Manna and White Mana (two different places) make fresh, to-order sliders, and have been doing them that way for decades.

Cozy Inn is also like that. It's been around since 1922, right after White Castle opened up in 1921. They've been making them the same way, onions, pickle, catsup, mustard for nearly 90 years.

Rage Against the Machine

I don't think you know how to play this game.

Yeah, totally.

I read Kerry King and Tom Arraya from Slayer in an interview once. They were asked that if, as they got older, it got harder to create angry music and they both said it was the opposite. As a teenager and young adult you have this unfocused general rage, as you get older you find more to actually be angry about.

Still love me some Rage, and Tom Morello is a guitar god.

Puce Moose, your friends are squares. :p

I just noticed that I told the creator of the thread he didn't know how to play the game.

Here is what I have to add. My guiltiest of pleasures is Sammy Hagar. And the cheesier he gets, the more I like it.

The band 30 Seconds to Mars.

Here I am, little indie rock elitist kid and yet this pop "alt" rock band makes me smile everytime I hear one of their songs. I feel dirty just admitting it.

Haha, right there with you, though I don't like they're latest album

The Birthday Massacre.

Haha, yeah. Saw them open for Mindless Self Indulgence and went out and got all their albums. Way too emo for me and somehow I love it anyways.

If I ignore the look and the lyrics I can really enjoy the Birthday Massacre. I've listened to enough emo music that I'm pretty good at hearing the vocals strictly as an instrument.

I'm not one to listen to lyrics too closely anyways, so it works for me...

Heh! I'm pleased to see some Rage Love. *becomes momentarily confused* It reminds me of a memorable quote by one of our forum members, doubtingthomas396: 'I like [Rage Against the Machine]. I don't like [not liking Rage Against the Machine]. And I won't be shamed into thinking I should[n't]. (That wasn't the exact quote, but I think the intent remains intact.)

Hmm, I'm feeling pretty validated with my Rage & Krystal burgers. how about a tougher one: the smell of vinegar! and the taste! I love it! Sometimes I'll even sip a teaspoon or three of vinegar and delight in the way my throat rebels to the sensation.

Can't remember it exactly either, but it was a quote for the ages.

Grey's Anatomy... /shame

Crushing my enemies, seeing them driven them before me, and hearing the lamentations of their women. I know I shouldn't want this, but I do!

FTFY.

Besides, I don't know why you wouldn't like it. It's a bunch of people getting knocked into a pool in funny ways. It's funny a) because I don't think anybody really gets hurt, and b) because everyone is doing voluntarily.

The fact that the girl 'host' is smokin' hot is just icing on the cake.

Yes larry, I think you were right. We probably will get along famously. As long as you agree there was only one highlander movie ever made.

Custard Creams - I've just finished half a packet in the space of a cup of coffee.

We don't need to agree on that. There has only been one highlander movie ever made. Fact.

Which makes it all the more odd that they named it Highlander 2.

Spoiler:

I kid. I kid.

These started making an appearance at the vending machine around the corner from my office.

They've been my 3pm snack for a week now.

Yummy but sad.

Twizzlers... blech. Give me good old Red Vines any day, they're WORLDS better. Twizzlers taste like @ss.

On topic: The Steve Wilkos Show. I love it when he kicks an unruly guest off his stage, in particular. Some of those people deserve far worse.

Wait, so unhealthy food items qualify?

Then, donuts. Oh sweet heaven, how I love them. The only thing keeping me from acting (and looking) like Homer Simpson over them is that there isn't a box of them waiting for me at work.

At least I generally prefer the cake ones, preferably unglazed--cuts out at least a little of the sugar. Then again, my favorite is the "double chocolate," which at the shop I patronize is a chocolate cake donut with chocolate frosting, making it in all ways a round piece of chocolate cake with extra fat, so that brings all the calories right back into the proceedings.

I'm not sure when this happened, but... McDonald's.

I used to hate it. Then I started this job where my two choices of food if I don't bring my lunch are McDonald's or the Great Steak & Potato Company. Great Steak is ok sometimes, but their sandwiches aren't really sandwiches, they're more like some ingredients slopped together and lazily thrown in a bag. There's usually so much grease it soaks through the bread on whatever end faces down in the bag. End result is I eat McDonald's fairly often. Sometimes I get salads, other times those Snack Wrap things, and on occasion I allow myself a Mushroom & Swiss third pounder, and I like it.

It makes me sad.

As terrible as it is, I still love the TV show. Can you imagine if they'd waited a decade? Better writing, better effects, better swordplay?

Better actors.

In the true American tradition of Puritanism, all of my pleasures are guilty pleasures.

In that vein...

Oh my, I LOVE the fruit smoothies. My favorite lunch is now a McDonalds Wildberry smoothie. Best guilty pleasure ever.

Best show on TV. Okay, maybe not. Best guilty pleasure show on TV. They need more smack wall.

Right there. If you don't find this funny, a) you're dead inside (or my wife), and b) Wipeout is not for you.

I lol'd. At the office. A LOT.

I still prefer MXE for the wonderful "translating."

Oh my god that's funny. The woman who gets caught on the arm is the best, as well as the one who nearly makes it.

*edit*

Oh yeah, and that host is smoking.
