  • As a fat american pig, I vastly prefer our bastardized american (or canadian) chinese cuisine to whatever authentic stuff they likely have in China.
  • American made Thai food > native Thai food.

    I have no doubt that CHINA has better Chinese food than Canada.
    I disagree on the grounds that I do not agree :x

    Excuse me mister Jerry, sir, it's in ontario, and I happen to eat there. They have this place called Hana-Bi, a sushi restaurant owned by chinese people and have this 1lb of sushi for 15 bucks. The chinese food is also very awesome. Canada is a haven for chinese people who make japanese food. It's a crazy place!
    15!? and only 1lb!? You could have spent that 15 on that one Japanese all you can eat sushi place I went to around there and also got all you can eat ice cream :x

    This concept makes no sense. By bashing them, aren't you just providing fuel for their emo fire?

    Shouldn't it be like 'hug an emo day' or 'praise an emo day'?

    I am going to China Town to get large Asian steam buns for tomorrow's deliriously un-healthy pot-luck Christmas lunch.

    We can make this work. Bacon appreciation trumps all other opinions in my book.

    Also, that statement was not based on my experiences. I know guys who went on a tour of Asia and said Thai restaurants here in NYC had taster food than the joints in Thailand.
  • At the office Yankee Swap, I walked off with Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth! And people really wanted the copy of Steve Martin's Born Standing Up I contributed to the gift pile.

    Also, we are shutting down at 4:30 today. Celebrate!

    Yes! Double Bastard is one of my favorite beers of all time, and I love St. Bernardus, although a lot of that is because I like the monk on the label.

    Stone is easily my favorite brewer, after Samuel Smith.

    As my friend Eric would say, your boss does the winning. And he is a senator.
  • the thai food in ny is butt, except for this one place and thats because the kids that run it came over from thailand like, yesterday. the food in thailand is fucking retardedly good, and i am a picky bastard. DONT BE ANGRY JERRY, thai food wants to make you happy.
  • Thai food is bad for you.

    It gives you hemorrhoids... of the butt. Buttorrhoids.

    You haven't experience Chinese food until you have gone into Canadia, where Chinese refugees perfect the art of food at this place called First Markham Place somewhere near Toronto
    Pacific Mall ? <img class=" title="In Love" />

    I'm willing to say that Toronto (or has the best Chinese food out of China. And why not, it's basically the same thing they have in China, but cleaner.

    The town I live in, Markham, is made up of about 50-ish% visible minorites, 30-ish% are Chinese, and the 2 kilometre radius around me is probably 95% Chinese. My school is 60% chinese, 39% south asian, and maybe 10 white dudes. The hospital near me has 3 languages on the signs: English, French, and Chinese. You're basically living in China if China had no poverty, communism, and had english as a second language.

    On another note, I've never tried Thai food, is it really that spicy?
  • Hong Kong's food is perfectly clean. Mainline China... maybe that's worth avoiding.

    There's a couple places out here in Queens that are cited as "the best thai in NYC." I've been to one. . . it was very inexpensive and very good. They served up a style of curry that no other place in the city makes, because its so spicy.
  • hmmmm ive spent precious little time in queens, maybe i should try it. my queens experiences mostly involved going to the beer garden to watch the world cup and being surrounded by 20 something czech men. not too bad as far as things go.
  • Sripraphai, that's the name of the place I went to and liked.

    http://newyork.citysearch.com/profile/7419856/

    And the beer garden is rad. . . they're opening a second location somewhere in Brooklyn, so I expect the Queens one will become significantly less crowded this summer, thus more to my liking.

    To tie my post to topic. . . I'm going to watch the Pad Thai Good Eats episode now. AWESOME.

    Hellz yeah.
  • You're forgetting Iron Chef.
  • But they only show American Iron Chef now, which is not as much fun. Plus, it features Alton Brown's commentary, so really it's just an extension of Good Eats.
  • Good eats without people dressed up in wacky foam suits, explaining things.
  • I FEEL AWESOME TODAY BECAUSE: I get to spend Christmas with my family, including my one-year-old niece, who is double super awesome.

    I FELT AWESOME YESTERDAY BECAUSE: I got to have a cheesesteak after having been in Pennsylvania for more than a week and not having had one.

    I'LL FEEL AWESOME TOMORROW BECAUSE: We set up the electric trains, and the electric race cars, and the US-1 Electric Trucking (which I still think is the coolest toy that was ever created, ever, and I include Transformers and Legos in that statement) and I'll get to show them all to my niece.
  • I feel awesome because It's 15 minutes 'til Christmas here in Austin, TX.
  • Christmas has actually been pretty cool for me this year, but

  • Shit, I don't like posting twice in a row, but I also didn't want to start a new thread for something that will probably be less hilarious after I sober up:

    So I'm at this hipster party, and everything's pretty awesome. It's allegedly a dance party, and I'm dancing, and this chick is like "let's dance awkwardly". So to make things awkward (this may not make sense to those of you who don't party with hipsters), I start grinding on her, I didn't sport wood or anything, I'm classy like that. Anyway, she (semi jokingly) says I'm an asshole for that, so I have to come up with something clever.

    So I think of Dave and Joel. And I bust out the Bubblegum Crisis Aerobics routine, and apparently it was god damn hilarious to all involved (myself, one of my buddies and the two or three hipster bitches on the dance floor). Like doing the running in place and hitting my feet (in time to the music).

    I just want to thank you guys for helping me to appear witty this New Year's Eve.

    Also, I spent the last few hours bugging whoever was DJing to play some Daft Punk. Finally this dude gave us a double feature of One More Time then Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, and let me tell you, everyone went nuts in a good way.

    Any party gets 20X better when Daft Punk is played.I remember in my dj'ing days how I had a lot of cd's and records stolen but man I'd watch over my Daft Punk albums like my own children.Try and stick to the original songs as most of the remixes of their stuff is soulless and quite tacky.
  • I feel awesome because I got a boyfriend. ^_^.!

    Yeah I know...lame but still. This guy is really awesome and geeky. My two things I like in a guy. Plus he has long hair. Ahhhh I love long hair!
  • New digital camera to take fun pictures of my cat, friends, and family with, a new Flickr account to put those pictures on, and tomorrow I'm going to my friend's house to hang and take pictures.

    Oh, and the cat likes the internet, as he's on my lap right now and is puring. Maybe it's the videogame music I'm playing, too.
  • "Viga" said:

    ewwwwwwwwwww
    but also congratulations!

    i feel awesome today because my landlord is an asshole and is raising my rent....oh wait...wrong thread
  • :( I have long hair.
  • I feel awesome because I no longer have to deal with my whiny, self-destructive girlfriend. I am, once again, glad to be single.

    Also, Symphony of the Night. And Alien Hominid.
  • Dude. Weren't you going on and on about how in love you were like two months ago? :shock:
  • That was before she started ignoring me, insulting me, and accusing me of making all her problems worse.
    Yes, there's part of me that's sad, because it wasn't all her. i screwed up too. But at least now i don't feel like punching walls because she won't let me do anything about her sadness.


    Anyway, me=teenager. We can make it simple and chalk it up to hormones, yes?

    ewwwwwwww

    people who arent this man should not have long hair

    nah, im kidding, people should do whatever the hell pleases them with their personal appearance, my boyfriend in highschool found my buzzed hair really unattractive but who really gives a shit about hair.
    my brother had long hair and his wife made him cut it. i hate that shit but he does look way less gross...
  • "grumps" said:
    ...my buzzed hair...
    Ah-ha, matters become a little clearer now...do you go to the gym at all?
  • Finally managed to get a copy of Otaku USA ; Cost me $25 but hey good things cost money I guess.
  • I'm a fan of the buzzcut on myself, but then I let it grow out until it starts getting in my eyes and go in again.
  • I shave my head because, long story short, my hair is an asshole.

    And Whiskey Priest- congratulations/condolences for living through a high school relationship, the most irritating and unsatisfactory rite of passage known to man.
  • when i buzz my hair i look like a 12 year old boy. but i havent done it in years, mainly for that reason. also, i HATE gyms, and excercise in general... does that make things more or less clear?
  • Hm...I had a theory, but now my theory turns out to be total bunk. Never mind...thanks for the responses though!
  • Found a girl who likes Funny Games as much as i do. She's gonna come over and watch it with me sometime.
    She's got extremely good taste for a high school girl. It's almost scary, really. i kinda wonder if she's an assassin from the future sent to kill me.

  • God damn it, I need to mail shit back faster so my queue can get to Funny Games.
