How long did it take you to notice that the poll changed? (11-26-2012)

I noticed fairly quickly.
It took me a while...
There's a poll in this topic? Since when!?

So good. They're not close to me though. I've either got to go south toward the Delaware state line or West toward Alabama.

So for no particular reason I'm gonna divulge a weird secret shame I have. Fast food fascinates me. I say "fascinates" not because I actually particularly like it, (I hate McDonalds, in no small part because I've worked there) but, I don't know, I like seeing the weird and sometimes disgusting ways corporations slam ingredients together. I have in the past found myself up at 4am watching videos of people eating Japanese KFC, or browsing menus of restaurants we don't have here in Ireland.

Look up Long John Silvers. Be amazed at their freaking menu. It's my favorite fast food joint and I only go there once a year.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

You Americans have a ridiculous number of cheap fast food chains, and I think if I lived there I would be a very large and poor man.

Fun fact about KFC in Japan.
It has become some what of a tradition for many Japanese people to eat KFC chicken for Christmas.
The reason for this is that KFC had a marketing campaign in Japan back in the 70s during Christmas that said: "On Christmas you eat KFC" or "Christmas = KFC" which caught on really well and has since then become a yearly thing.
If you stop and think about it, Your life's longer as an old guy than a kid. Scary o.o

I wish I could go to KFC on Christmas every year...

Also, Sam, I'd eat it. They have great honey mustard. I'd smother it in that and eat it. I keep a catalog of honey mustards since it is my favorite condiment. LJS has pretty good honey mustard, though its processed nature is very obvious. But that flavor is good.

Was that Will Arnett?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Will Arnett plays the horse dude and I dunno, maybe some other ancillary characters.

Getting rid of my cell phone as soon as his dumb contract ends.

But I may get a pager. Anyone know about them? I'd be getting a receiver only, so I think that means it can't be tracked. Which is what I want.

I thought the only people who used pagers were doctors 20 years ago and drug dealers 15 years ago.

Doctors still use them. Apparently they are very reliable and not much can block reception, including basements and giant buildings.

I want one because it doesn't broadcast my GPS coordinates but still lets people get in touch with me.

So apparently I missed the news of a major bug that allowed someone to basically reset your steam password by exploiting the forgotton password feature

(It's been fixed now)

You're all using Steam Guard, right?

Because you should be using Steam Guard.

I found this article in an old Wired magazine someone left in the work breakroom, and I wanted to see what you guys thought of it.  Because it sounds like some kind of nightmare to me.
