today for lunch I ate Burger King. I then remembered that burger king is an awful restaurant and I hate their burnt tasting burgers. biggest waste of $7 ever.

correction: the sprite was delicious. biggest waste of $5 ever.


I haven't been to a Burger King for more than a decade. When I was in high school, the Burger King practically next door was the only place for seniors to eat off campus. I remember at the time, BK made a big fuss about their new fries. They were crispy, but so starchy that often times, three of the fries seemed glued on together... bleh. That said, it was either that or the snack bar on campus and BK usually won.

You define "restaurant" very broadly.

When she went under the oral surgeon’s knife 18 months ago, Karen Butler sounded like any other lifelong resident of coastal Oregon. But when she shook off the anesthesia, the 56-year-old mother of five suddenly found herself speaking with a strange new accent — an odd mixture of Irish, Scottish and northern British, with perhaps a dash of Australian and South African for good measure.


Though she has not undergone a full battery of neurological tests, Butler, by all appearances, is suffering a rare disorder called foreign accent syndrome. The condition affects only about 100 people worldwide.

Foreign accent syndrome is usually brought on, experts say, by a stroke, a brain injury or, in some cases, a tumor. But none of those seem to be a factor in Butler’s case: Preliminary tests, she said, showed that she had no other signs of brain injury.


Butler said her strange symptoms developed immediately after her oral surgery. At first she thought she was just groggy and swollen, and that the strange and oddly amusing speech pattern would fade with time.

suddenly, the question "Have you ever been sucked off by a Chinese sperm donation machine?" has a little more legitimacy to it

If the school had prepped the kid then the kid would already know that her mother is an idiot. :-b

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
