Somebody should just shoot this doofus. His life seems to be a complete waste of time.
 
2002-04-22 05:40:10 PM  
Why doesn't he show some originality and try out the independent coffee shops instead? It would be much more interesting...
 
2002-04-22 05:40:14 PM

I bet 3 or 4 new ones will pop up before he gets out of one... It will be like the song that doesnt end. He will keep going on and on forever because he will didnt know what he was getting himself into.

My goal is to visit every McDonalds and 7-11 in the world.

Actually I hate both those places, but I did make it a point to stop at every Subway (eat fresh) along I95 all up and down the east coast. I got chased out of a Memphis TN Subway for commenting that ELVIS died for our sins. They take that guy a little too seriously down there...

uh oh I have said too much again.

"Project:Denny's"...way cooler...

2002-04-22 05:47:30 PM  
and yes I realize that Memphis TN is not on I95...
 
2002-04-22 05:48:49 PM  
....is shocked to discover they are all the same!
 
2002-04-22 05:49:10 PM  
"Hi, I'm on a quest to visit every starbucks on earth"

"Yeah, So?!"

* sound of coffee bubbling, dumbfounded stares *
 
2002-04-22 05:50:26 PM  
While driving across the country to Texas my brother and I decided to ONLY get gas at Conoco stations. Why? Who knows. It was pointless and we gave up when we discovered we should have chosen something like 7-11 that you can actually find.

Why am I sharing this story?---I have no idea.

According to their web page they currently have 4,709 locations in the US. At $2.50 a Starbucks for his delightful coffee treat---he's going to be spending $11,772.50 for this silly assed life goal and that's not including gas or vehicle maintenance.
 
2002-04-22 05:56:02 PM  
I think visiting every trailer park in the country would help him fit in with his element.

Charliex is right, this should fall under [HERO]

Jeffmw,
Everyone knows trailer trash can't afford starbucks.
 
2002-04-22 06:00:24 PM  
another wasted 5 minutes of my time as well
 
2002-04-22 06:01:50 PM  
I wonder if it's one of the two dumbass Star Wars guys who have been sitting outside the Cinerama in Seattle under a tent for months. It would be a fitting sequel to that stupid "art project."

Here's an art project: Deface every Starbucks bathroom (photographic proof required).

Wheres the Good ol Doctor of Retarded......

Not to be bitter or anything, but I submitted this this morning with the :Dumbass: tag. Seems more appropriate, really.
 
2002-04-22 06:04:40 PM  
here's a good art project,
sexual scavenger hunt,
Photo's required...

Quick, someone post a pic of the java guy from Mad TV.
 
2002-04-22 06:08:16 PM  
Malinois is right. If he was going to independent coffee houses, that would be worth reading about. He might as well be eating croisants at all the Borders Books and Musics across the country.
 
2002-04-22 06:08:44 PM  
You know you live in a small Fark-hole of a town, when you don't have a Starbucks. I think I would have to drive for 2+ hours to find one. Some how, I don't feel left out, or deprived in any way, Huh, go figure.
 
2002-04-22 06:15:22 PM  
Hey, I submitted this story over a week ago.

I am also a cool guy super internet badass. But I prefer tea to coffee. It's a throwback to highschool where I had to endure the halitosis & coffee tainted breath of teachers.

It's a scent that is forever burned into my frontal lobe, and I think of it whenever I see or smell coffee, yuck.

Oh Boy! 4,709 cups of crappy coffee!
 
2002-04-22 06:19:54 PM  
Yeah, I'll have a double cafe mocca, ez on the foam, extra cocoa, 1/2 decaf, with a light mist of green sprinkles and a cherry on top.

Thx

Tea is good too.
 
2002-04-22 06:35:18 PM  
The excuse to take a bunch of random road trips justifies it. I think it's cool.
