I don’t know that any food can really be worth breaking secular beliefs by its own merit, but if one food really could it would be bacon.

We had an exchange kid in the neighborhood some years back from Yemen. Devout Muslim. We had a big cookout in the neighborhood one afternoon and I was grilling some kosher franks for him and a bunch of pork sausages for everyone else. I walked away from the grill for a few moments and when I come back the kids is flipping out about great these “hot dogs” were and how he never had anything like them. They were the pork sausages. He ate four of them back to back and all we could do was watch because if we told him he’d have sinned and had to deal with it. I made sure at subsequent cookouts everything on the grill was halal but he always asked if we were going to have more of “those hot dogs”...I’d tell him no and the disappointment on his face was like telling a five year old you’re going to a toy store but taking him to get tetanus shot instead.

This is the only way possible I would listen to 50 Shades of Grey.

How long does it take to grow a turbine and what kind of equipment is required to harvest them once mature? I live near Sweetwater, TX and am eager to see the machines the windfarmers use to harvest them. I imagine some kind of large combine-type tractor. Seems to be taking an awfully long time for them to be ready, though.

What kind of car do you drive?

Do you do the same Christmas sermon every year, do you keep a common theme, or do you start from scratch?

I only came in here to ask if they didn't think maybe they should pick a different name for a spacecraft...
