For help on how to follow a comic title,
Agreed, but he should be credited.
Reminds me of these classic quotes: https://www.staff.uni-mainz.de/neuffer/scsi/fun.html
Yeah, you gotta be careful if you don’t have access to covered parking. You can get serious burns leaning against a car that’s been out in the desert sun for more than a short time.
It all depends on what you like. I’ve been in Phoenix in July (over 110 degrees and extremely dry) and I didn’t have a real problem with it. Just drink a lot of water, wear a hat and stay in the shade as much as you can. My wife and daughter, on the other hand, couldn’t stand it.
On the other hand, a typical summer at home (90 degrees, humid and lots of allergens in the air) is far more uncomfortable for me, but my family doesn’t have a problem with that.
They are local to me. They are good. And they are the only fast food place where I ever got sick from the food.
I think I’ll stick with automation over the judgement of high school kids.
It’s not like it’s even possible. Every fast food chain I know of uses automated equipment these days. Unless it’s malfunctioning, it would be difficult (or impossible for some chains) to pull a burger before the cook cycle has completed, and any staffer who tried would get in trouble for it.
That having been said, I remember back when I worked at a Burger King back in the 80’s that one customer asked us to put his burger through the automated griller twice.
If you don’t know, Burger King uses a chain-link conveyor belt that passes the meat over gas flames in order to cook it. It is designed so you put fully frozen patties in one end and get cooked burgers out the other end. You definitely don’t want to try putting anything through it twice – it will get horribly burnt and will taste terrible.
Anyway, we refused, so he called the manager. The manager told him that we’ll do it for him, but we won’t honor any kind of quality guarantee for it, having warned him that he won’t like the result. He still insisted. We made it and served it. I hope he liked his charcoal patty.
At least he wasn’t obnoxious enough to complain about it afterward.
That’s the motto at my home. If you wake the cat, you become responsible for whatever it does afterward. :-)
That would be the act of a good kid.
A real kid, on the other hand, would stay up watching the TV and finish the popcorn. Then (maybe) go to bed.
Agreed. The story needs to be brought to a conclusion.
If the writer/producer/director are telling a story big enough that it must be spread across several films (e.g. Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings), that’s fine, but even then you need to end each film at a point appropriate for the story. A so-called “act break”, where the story is about to transition from one major theme to another.
This is easier when the movies are based on books, because you’ve got books and chapters that define where the original author wanted the breaks to be, but it’s just as necessary for completely original works.
This is why you really should coordinate with the host.
