    Thats alot of lead dude. I guess its worth a shot to try. Good luck with that.

    I used to hit up Carls in Hawaii and get double western burgers. One of the best fast food burgers ever. For me its a toss up between Jack in the Box and Carls Jr. Meat, Onion strings, cheese, and BBQ This appears to be that with pulled pork added.

    Im gonna have to hit up a hardees next time I see one.

    I guess I am going back to my London days. The plow after mods is incredible. But I never had to put more than an oz of lead in there. So I am breaking the record with 2 oz of lead and 2 layers of overwrap.

    I still think my Fuddruckers is still the best! Beats all the fancy burger places hands down. For fast foods, I still love my Checkers and Roy Rogers. Sometihng about putting red onions in burgers that's so good. Also Checker's seasoned fries is awesome as well. I stopped going to BK's ever since they changed their fries this last time. I thought the last iteration was perfect. Very crunchy.

    in hawaii i was addicted to jack in the box for my late night fixes. monster tacos and sourdough jack. never been to a carl's. if they gotta resort to objectifying womenz then i'm not sure how good their food can be.

    st louis drive in was also redonkulous. here's a pic of some teriyaki beef and ahi tuna.

    yeah, they had a steak burger which was pretty good as well. Their onion rings was the best. Especially love their fixin bar and their cheese sauces.

    I am doing pretty well with my diet. I lost 10 lbs in the past 2 weeks. I ate the same things but I made all my normal servings to half. Bringing a much smaller serving lunch box helped alot too. I can jam and cram as much food in the 8 oz glass pyrex. But it's only 8 ozs.

    Last time I went to Fudds I had a Wild Boar Burger. Tatsed like pork, but still kinda meat. It wasnt bad.


    The Jack in the Box tacos are legit. I was telling my buddy how awesome they were (for fast food) and he didnt believe me. Then when we went to Bato Rouge we hit up Jack and he agreed with me.

    My friend demoed som sticks and had one them E-Zones in there. it wasnt the 98. It was a tad light for me and looked funny because the throat was sp beefy looking at like 5 and 7 o clock. Didnt hit too bad for a light frame though.

    Just get an IG speed 18x20 and be done with it. You should have bought that frame 2 years ago instead of the RDiS 200!!

    Are you going to apply to work at P1? 20min/ racquet is insane.

    I'd like to see you do it on a dropweight. And you still need to show me doing it in 1 piece, still can't figure out the measuring part and how to start?

    No such thing. There is real food. And stuff that is not food. Eat real food.

    you mean the spam? why would the spam drop on crumbling leaves?

    i do love me some spam though. i realize lots and lots of people think it's pretty disgusting but it's basically the same thing as hotdogs.

    wookie - now that you are playing tennis again does that mean we are going to pair up again for next season? team monkeystrike in full effect!

    kids love spam sushi and spam fried rice. Don't know why it's gotten such a bad wrap all this time.

    depends. If it has sausage on it then the USDA inspects it. If it is veggie pizza, then it's commerce dept, so it's a vegetable. =)

    I'm hoping I can, but I can't promise anything yet. Don't know if the wife is down for watching my small village of children while I hit on a week night.

    Are you going to drag me to the dark side with you? Is the capt going to hunt me down like a traitor? Will I need witness protection?

    My tennis game still needs lots of work. Overheads have been a trouble spot in the tennis clinic and I still need to lose about 3-wookie babies worth of weight. (The twins are up to about 10 lbs each).

    Goat is surprisingly good. Especially in curries with a side of roti bread.

    Got any good Caribbean curry powder recommendations? I used the one with the flower logo that comes in a plastic bottle. It was pretty weak.
    My fav Caribbean curry powder is this brand called Chief. I've been to at least several Caribbean grocery stores, can't find this brand no more.

    No recommendations unfortunately. I usually go with the curry powered my wife picks up from the African markets. Don't know the brand.

    i havent had spam in forever. one time in college me and my roomate purposely left a open can on the window sill to see what would happen. i think it was like 3 weeks before we couldnt take it and tossed it out. we did the same with banana peels and that turned out fine.

    banana> spam

    oh god i barely can use a dropweight. i been spoiled by technology. you know what next time i do a 1pc maybe i will youtube it. or drop by sometime and i can show you. i think you are just over thinking it. its not hard

    think of it this way-its just like a 2pc, except 1pc is much longer than the other pc, whereas in 2 pc both string are same length

    Except maybe this.

    What happened to the spam? Did stuff start growing out of it? Did it just smell really bad? What did you expect to happen? It is a meat product?

    You should have left the whole banana not just the peels. Nobody eats the peels unless you want to get pulled over by the cops or something.
