It's the 80's all over again! How could we forget the timeless EAST SIDE STORY?

Unfortunately, Indiana also has an anti-anti-discrimination bill in the works.

Almost any arrangement with a single line feeding many registers (manned or unmanned), is more equitable and faster for all patrons. Fry's does this with human checkers. Many grocers do it with their machines. To me, this is a far bigger deal.



For what it's worth, the NYT agrees.

So, come and give your coins to me
Write your name here in the record book
The authorities will want to look
If you've been regular with me
If you've paid the proper fee
For the privilege to pee.

It's not what you're looking for style-wise, but bondi-bands are super effective functionally. If your running store doesn't have them, they're sold cheap at just about every race expo.

Name an exotic high-risk infrastructure solution where Hitachi Heavy Industries is the world leader and only credible vendor?

A) Big Tunnel Boring Systems
B) Commuter Monorails*
C) BOTH! Oh, the forehead-slapping irony in this thread.

Maybe instead of a sex-based coffee shop we could have a violence based coffee shop? One that depicted the type of stuff we see on network television?

Special Victims' Unit Espresso - bring the kids! It's wholesome and socially acceptable!

@6 - Exactly. Blare some klaxons, make everybody go underground, and you've got a perfect Two Minutes Hate followed by airstrikes. It's a perfect gift for hawks on both sides.

It's the only attribute of the rockets that could possibly be called "efficacious."
