Congratulations to them, but no knocking central asian food, which is great. Really, it's wonderful stuff. They should be espeically sure to check out the mellons.

the food he was getting outside the missle base was, indeed, great. it was more a problem with the meatballs in the s33krit ex-soviet ICBM launch base canteen.


Yeah, I bet the canteen food isn't so hot. He should try to get some old soviet cosmonaut food- Borsch in a tube! I'm not kidding.

I blogged the inflation here because of course, but WTF about your brother?

Please unpack.


Could he not eat some NY metballs? Their lead in the NL East is annoyingly large.

I feel like this is something all the nerds in the blogosphere can get behind, regardless of their politics.

This makes me wonder whether Gil Scott Heron has a blog.

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
