Would have been nice if there was actually some investigating on the story instead of just reporting.  Geez, at least get a few quotes.

Yes, it's the general term for a group of people who travel between parallel universes by "sliding" between dimensions using a transdimentional wormhole. There was a documentary series about them a fair while back, I think.

Mmmm, White Castles. Bring 'em on. They're not for the faint of heart, as apparently many of you have very gentle stomachs.

There was a time when I loved White Castle, but could only get it on road trips.  I wanted a WC in North Carolina really badly.  But then we got Cookout, and I haven't missed White Castle one bit.

Every person I know who claims White Castles have no effect on them seem to have malfunctioning olfactory systems.

I've had White Castle on many a drunken ride home from the bar, and I've never heard them referred to as sliders. Sliders are cooked on a grill. I'm not sure how WC cooks their stuff but I don't think it involves a grill.

The term "sliders" as referring to hamburgers originated in the US Navy.  Because the rank conscious navy gives the good hamburger to the officers and CPOs, the poor quality stuff that contains a lot of fat goes to the enlisted mess.  When it is cooked on the grill, there is a great deal of grease produced that as the ship rocks fore & aft as well as port to starboard, causes the burgers to slide on the grill...therefore "sliders".  When I retired in 1991, the enlisted personnel were served burgers with a mixture of soy protein and hamburger meat rather than good all beef burgers.  We were also given generic ketchup vice the good Heinz ketchup that the officers and chiefs were served.  This is the way the navy told us enlisted personnel that we were second class human beings who were unworthy of good food.  I refused to eat the chicken fried steak as the breading always hid lots of gristle.

Sounds like you have never been inside. Being able to see into the kitchen is one of the things that makes white castle unique in fast food. It's drive up only after 10pm, so its possible most people drunk enough to eat there haven't been inside.

There's a ranking of slider joints.

There's White Castle at the top. And (to me a step down) Krystal. And then, there's the burger place I worked for the summer between HS and college. Which was around 12 places down with nothing below but turtles. It not only sold sliders but it had a full service short order counter as well. I worked the graveyard shift 11PM-7AM. So, mostly I cleaned up the joint, changed the grease, and cooked breakfasts for cops and cabbies. But from 2-3:30 we sold billions of sliders to drunks trying to sober up and go home. To this day the suffering of those guys' wives -- the double bong of booze sweat and burger gas -- makes me wince.

The steamed patty & onion, it's an aroma that will be in your car forever. Great when you buy them, not so much a week later.

Did you ever go in and stand in line?  You can see the grill right in front of you. Where you that farked up?

Use to stop after a Friday night of liquid refreshment.  It's the perfect 2:30 am food.  Would stand in line and everybody was swaying from side to side.  Amazingly, after a few minutes, the line would be swaying in perfect unison.  Scientists should check this out, it may be important.

A long time ago, driving through Nashville, I saw a White Castle and a Krystal across the street from each other. I didn't know what to think about that.

Hey, what do you expect subby to do? Three seconds of googling to get a better link than the Daily Fail?

OK, so it looks like the original NY Daily News story, which the Daily Fail ripped off with a BARE minimum of rewriting and slapped a fake byline on, doesn't have much more info. It's better written, though.

Slang, not jargon. Jargon is specialized work language. Sliders are little bitty hamburgers. Usually they're sold in numbers; a typical offering at a restaurant is three.

Throw in a Taco Bell nearby, and you have the potential for a immense "natural gas" explosion.

This is why cops should be wearing video recorders on their chests.  If we see a bag of White Castle blocking the cops way, we know he is telling the truth.  I'm inclined to believe the guys who claim the cops stole their burgers.  This was in Coney Island in the aftermath of Katrina, the emergency personel were on duty for extended hours and there wasn't any food or water available.  The guys had taken a cab  back to the neighborhood with food; I wouldn't put it past the cops to steal it from them and then lie.

Curious though why it's just coming to light now.

Aside from a few luxury items they buy out of their own pockets (like better ketchup), the chiefs and officers eat the same chow as the enlisted personnel. It's just served differently. I was a mess crank in the chief's mess of a destroyer in '85; we just went into the galley and brought the food back to put on steam trays in the chief's mess. The wardroom had its own small galley, but they brought most of the food up through a dumbwaiter from the galley. The officers also pay for their food, unlike the enlisted, same way they have to buy their uniforms, so the wardroom mess had a few luxury items for common use that the enlisted would have to buy at the ship's store.

Best sliders are mid rats sliders.

A slider is a a burger around 2 1/2" on a side and around 1/4" thick. It's cooked with oily, onions chopped very fine. As the burger cooks it's are topped with the bun. I have no idea why. The result is an oily thing that slides down your throat like a weasel down a muddy sluice.

Which, coincidentally ...

Huh, apparently the nav was way more inefficient before I joined up.  Two separate supply chains for food, one for blueshirts, one for khankis?  Seems unlikely, and it sure wasn't that way just a few years after you retired.  Of course, it sounds like you retired before hitting E-7, from the way you phrased that, so...

And? It's not like we can stop global climate change. No man, just sit back and enjoy the ride. We humans are driving the environment into a civilization destroying event, and as our civilization is a global civilization this time it will affect everybody. It is also possible that global climate change will be an extinction event. There really is no hope for the future.
