Insulation and central heat. Those years in an old Japanese house were frigid.

I like that I can speak out against the government without fear of repercussion.

I love California land forms, can get quite internally mushy about them. Snyder's of Hangover sourdough pretzels. (Sorry for the brand name, folks, but it's important.) The Rockies and the Sierras. The Mammoths and Passenger Pigeons, even if they aren't around right now. Crazy ass writers like Tim Powers, and Philip K Dick and Frank L. Baum. Whacked out puppeters too. Saguaro and other Cacti. I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of it right now.

that we live in a country where this kinda shit shocks us:

KHARTOUM, Sudan - Sudanese authorities on Tuesday questioned a British teacher who could face charges of insulting religion - a crime punishable by up to 40 lashes - after she allowed her young students to name a teddy bear Muhammad in a class project.

what I like about the US of A

Post by porterico » Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:47 am

24 hr everything, and cheap shit (esp 24hr fitness, and WALMART), and cheap gas (relatively speaking) ... gas is 1.37 euros per liter now in Vienna...

the cheap buffets in Vegas...

It it were expensive... I'd have to settle for all of the natural beauty.

Long-hood Peterbilt trucks, musclecars, power boats, Burning Man... and although wedeliver should never let the power cord of a Packard Bell get near an electrical outlet when America has Macs, he's absolutely spot-on about the Baskin-Robbins ice cream! Make mine a double cone, chocolate and chocolate-chip cookie dough.
