agreed

if they aren't turning left at 149/142/127 (which they aren't) they need to stay the f out of that left lane

Some pretty intresting stuff....

The capsule is floated more than 120,000 feet into the stratosphere by an ultra-thin, 55-story helium balloon. The ascent will take nearly three-hours.

The balloon is so delicate that it can take off only if winds on the ground are 2 mph or less.

The balloons are so fragile that once they are taken out of the box, they cannot be reused. The team has one more balloon. The balloons cost several hundred thousand dollars each, and its estimated the team lost $60,000 to $70,000 in helium with the aborted jump.

Joe Kittinger, Baumgartner's team leader, actually leapt from a helium balloon-floated, open-air gondola from an altitude of 19.5 miles in 1960.

Has anyone tried the Ghost Burritos at Mucho Burrito?

Im eating the wimpy right now. Its pretty hot.

They told me nobody has finished the "Hotter than Hell" version yet.

They are made with "Ghost Pepper" sauce made from the infamous "Naga Bhut Jolokia" pepper or "Ghost" pepper.

Here is a guy trying to eat one of the peppers raw.

Is there a reason MLB plays afternoon games in the playoffs?

Likely just to not overlap games so that you can catch them all. Afternoon games for Americans are nothing. If their teams are in the playoffs and its game day it's like a holiday at the office.

you talkin about the one on 34th? That's the one I went to, just about a week after it opened. I was hungry on the way home one night and decided to hit the drive thru for something new. I got an XL burrito cuz I was starving and they chintzed out on everything, but meat (seasoned, shredded pork) in particular. Actually they didn't chintz on the beans, they overloaded the thing with too many beans. I don't know it just didn't seem worth it at all for what I payed, flavour wasn't popping for me or anything. Seemed poorly put together. That being said I'm a bit of a picky eater and it was also my first time there, I haven't tried anything else on the menu.

Yes the one on 34th (why did the Taco Bell close but a less known brand would appear?).

My fear is the price. I hate tweener restaurants like this. Its not a full on sit down place like Original Joes or Red Robins but its classier then mcdonalds. You usually end up paying a premium and its never worth it.

Id rather get the same amount of food for less at a cheaper place or get more food. On the flip side Id rather spend an extra few bucks for the full sit down restaurant.

Kind of like fatburger. It ends up being 10-15 bucks with fries and a drink but you can get a burger, fries, a drink plus tip from a restaurant for like 15-20 why not just spend the extra on higher quality food or go the cheap Wendys, A and W, Burger king etc route.


Its funny you mention lots of beans too. Easy to fill up a burrito and make it look big but beans are so cheap compared to meat or other vegetables

One opened here in Fort Mac as well, but it's right next to the Wok Box. And honestly, if I am in the area, thats where I am gonna stop for food. I like getting fairly fresh food fast. Wok Box and Edo are probably my two favorite places to eat. Especially since the guys who run the Edo here also are dealers at the Casino I used to work at I get lots of extras.

You can get a burrito for 7 or 8 dollars. Its not expensive, and is a much more healthy option than most if not all fast food outlets.

I dare anyone to get the "Hotter than Hell" Ghost Burrito. I couldnt even finish the Wimpy version. I suppose I could have if I had to, but it was pretty over powering.

Leaf fan coming here in peace.


I have a favor to ask.


I'm going to be visiting my girlfriend in Edmonton for the first time since she moved on the 19th (we are doing a Long Distance relationship), I have never been to Edmonton and I need help. I already have one of the two days I'm spending there planned; the West Edmonton Mall and a Concert. I need something for my last day. A nice Restaurant/Bar/Lounge and another Landmark. Any help is welcomed and appreciated.

Getting a drink and fries at fatburger is a waste, same with 5 guys. Normally if I go to either of those I just get the burger. The buffalo chicken burger at fatburger is 8-9$, ~2x as expensive as wendys, but more than twice as good. Also the burgers at fatburger/5guys are probably twice as big as wendys' (or similar fast food joints).

So I recently bought something online (moccasins), the company said it take between 2-9 days to arrive. Get an email confirming purchase, says that there will be an other email to confirm shipping information (kind of odd).

Well, it's been 5 days since the order was placed and I was starting to get suspicious. I decided to look the company up and it seems as though they are quite poorly rated by the BBB and there are a lot of claims of fraud (none of this showed up before I ordered), problems with orders and deliveries.

What course of action can I take to cancel the order/prevent them from getting my money? Can the credit card company freeze the transaction, or reverse it if it has already transpired?

As clutch as it was, I am sure A-Rod in his current slump would have went deep on Valverde, he has been one worst closers in baseball this year, I have no idea why Leyand would even fathom keeping him in after the Ichiro home run.

that's true, and agreed. It just had to be Ibanez though. Pretty epic regardless.

The one downtown around 109st by the Kyoto and stuff has never been chintzy with my stuff. Maybe that has changed, but I never had a problem with the burritos or trio of soft tacos I normally get.

It was hot but not so bad, a little hotter than their regular burrito with hot salsa. I am Mexican though so I guess my taste buds are less sensitive than some.

Which location did you go to? Cause I have gone with a few different people and they all finished it. They were sweating bullets, but they got through it.
