I’m at Jim’s with my kids, and three guys behind us are joyfully eating Philly Tacos. And I’m wondering, what over Philly-based food combos are there?

Is there a Kensington Kebab? A Rittenhouse Lollipop? A Northeast Bahn Mi?

I can’t get FiOS in my part of Philly, but I can get Verizon’s new audio program “Jackhammering Outside Your Window for 14 Hours” totally for free!!!

“They should put that on your tombstone. Even better: on your urn.”

Unrelated to the signing of a new $330 million contract, the Phillies have agreed, in cooperation with the City of Philadelphia and the various Business Improvement Districts therein, to begin instituting, with immediate effect, a $20 “Crossing Broad Street” tax.


*Gritty, shaking head*: only once, huh?

@Hazelcrazygoatlady mostly I try not to think too hard about monetary systems, lest it become obvious that it’s turtles all the way down.

I am not necessarily saying that it is everyone's given right to eat at Sweetgreen, but I would like to see the trend of "cashless" stores stopped dead in its tracks:


Also, I would like to point out that the solution to this is simple: jump the counter, make a meal, eat it, and then offer to pay cash. Once you owe a debt, cash is always legal tender to resolve it.

As hard as it is to believe that there’s anyone laughing at this man when he’s on stage, I find it much harder to believe that there’s no one setting him on fire. washingtonpost.com/arts-entert

@dave personally I long for those halcyon days when every box of Krusty-Os came with a special Jagged Metal Krusty-O as a toy.

@Dayglochainsaw just wait till you’ve seen what the Chinese have dreamed up....

@skyfaller “I’m sorry that [action] which I imagine [probably feeling or effect], though I would like to know how [action] affected you.

I would like to [preferred vision of future nature of relationship], and hope that I can [possible remedial action on my part] could make that possible.”

Either they remember the offense and want to contribute to the remediation; or the don’t remember and are looking for a way to move on too; or they don’t remember and want to relieve you of the burden.

People seem to say that cleaning their homes and buying groceries and working on their taxes is “adulting”, but I also think that eating chocolate chip cookies dipped in bourbon counts.

@dave the line between Frye Festival, and ventures like Uber, is surprisingly thin, if existent.

@dave the George Orwell quote is something like “journalism is something someone else doesn’t want printed. Everything else is PR.”

@uranther@sunbeam.city careful, someone’s going to think it’s a good idea to genetically engineer some kind of Super Goat that can devour an entire field of weeds in an afternoon and turn it into spider silk.

Tbh, as much as people refer to Frontier as “A greyhound bus, but in the sky,” I experience it more as “Eastern Airlines, circa 1986.”

It’s fine, and I flew round trip to Orlando for $48.

In the unlikely event of an emergency landing this tray table is optimally designed for jabbing into your liver.

Posit: a 2 1/2 hour flight from PHL to MCO can be filled entirely with original, remastered, and covered versions of Led Zepplin’s Immigrant Song.
