No - everyone else does so Arizona effectively switches time zones between PST and MST.

Nope, no need to conserve daylight here.

Indiana switched in '06 to fully support DST. Hawaii still doesn't though.

Do people in the Southwest eat cactus often? I had cactus in a burrito recently and it was ****ing awesome, but I don't know how common it is.

No. It's not in many restaurants or anything either.

I've only ever looked at Cactus as a food source for if I get stuck out in the desert while on an excursion.

The only time I've eaten cactus was when I moved here back in '95. Stopped at one of those shops along the highway and got some in a bag. It was too sweet... or was it salty? One of those.

I haven't seen it on many restaurant menus and the only time I personally had it, it was turned into specialty margaritas. Tasty.


I am curious what kind of cactus was in the burrito?

Both of the super Walmarts in Prescott stock cactus in the produce department, but I've never tried it. I think it's more of a Mexican thing.

I had it at a Tex-Mex place, in a burrito with fried sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, and chipotle crema. It ruled and I want more, but I can't go to this place in particular all too frequently (it's in Philly and I live in DC now).

No idea. It was cut into sticks about an inch long and about a quarter inch thick, and flash fried. A little crispy on the outside, but it had a rooty quality on the inside, not unlike a potato, but a little fresher and snappier. Maybe like a cross between a potato and a cucumber or zucchini, texturally.

From what I have experenced, prickly pear cactus grows its own fruit. Had this same fruit used in gummy like candy and jam. Its great. The fruit has its own flavor you cant compare it to other fruit and and has a moderate amount of sweetness.

Stubhub rocks

Got my tickets in the Mail for the Coyotes vs LA game at the Staples Center on Jan 20th.

Normally $125 tickets at the gate for club seating for only $30 a piece. I can get in 2 hours before the start of the game and eat at a nice restarunt like the San Manuel Club.

Here are some nice pictures of the dining area where you can see the game while you eat too. http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/bca-l...x4fdIxrxSN4gWw

Enough about that. I know a couple of you here have been to other arenas to see a hockey game but I'll ask anyway, who has been to another NHL arena besides in Phoenix of course for a hockey game?

Ive been too MSG, CAA where the Devils used to play, Honda Center, HP Pavilion.

Well, I at least give him credit for having a deep passion for the team.

RBC Center in Raleigh for a Hurricanes game when visiting family friends. Awesome experience. Place was rockin' that night.

I've been to Staples Center, MSG, and the United Center but not during hockey games.

Yeah. I've been glued to the TV for the past couple hours. Crazy ups and downs.

I can't imagine this will appeal to very many people, but here's (from what I can tell) the full text from David Foster Wallace's "Authority and American Usage" essay, which masquerades as a book review but is really just an excuse for Wallace to proselytize about grammar and style. Even if you're not one of the two people who find my grammar sermons interesting, it's a great read. Wallace is my favorite writer, and this is probably my favorite piece of his non-fiction.

Id like to see this at the stadiums and arenas here in the state. How the **** is this possible I ask?





Also you may want to think twice before buying a large beer over a regular one at an event after seeing this.
