Drive thrus are one of the worst innovations ever.  We make it so the laziest among us don't even have to get out of their cars and we wonder why so many people act like entitled assholes, to say nothing of the obesity epidemic.

This is great. We should have more pop-up corona virus testing clinics. Eventually we could open up entire football stadiums for festival corona virus testing. Once a year we could have an epic corona virus testing party for a week in a desert somewhere with millions of people attending.

This is good people. The end is near.

Drive thrus are great.

They save the restaurant time and money, they save the customers time, and indirectly save them money. They allow the handicapped easier access.

Hell, they even let my old roommate buy buckets of fried chicken without bothering to put on shoes.

Go ahead and stand in line in almost physical contact with everybody else there. Your chances of catching anything airborne only increase by proximity times duration. No biggie.

/Holds just as true for a Covid-19 test facility and an Arby's.

It took me many years to come around to appreciating horseradish, thanks to a traumatizing event in my childhood.

My family was at a fine dining restaurant with low light levels. I ordered beef medallions, which came with mashed potatoes.

Right next to the mashed potatoes was a large pile of freshly shredded horseradish to go with the beef.

Thinking it was potato, I took a huge spoonful and shoved it right in my mouth. I thought I was dying, and definitely lost my appetite for the evening after that.

Wasabi FTW. It also turns food green that usually shouldn't be. Wasabi powder mixed with mayo looks gross but it really tasty.

In the tiny east-coast village my father is from, we were taught as kids that the the plentiful spiny, prickly, slimy sea urchins we used for bait were vernacularly referred to as "devil's eggs" or more often "whore's eggs". After my first spoonful of horseradish I henceforth started referring to the stuff as "whore's radish".

Are you getting real wasabi, though, or just dyed horseradish?

Staff at the garage-turned-clinic at the University of Washington's UW Medicine can test can healthcare workers for influenza A, B, respiratory syncytial virus, as well as COVID-19, every five minutes, and provide results within about a day, NPR reported.

Finally someone is taking care of long neglected can healthcare workers.

I had a similar situation, athough it wasn't a sensation of "dying", so much as a "petit mort", if you know what I mean, and I know you don't, because it sounds like you couldn't eat sour cream without getting a tummyache

"wasabi powder" is generally horseradish with really good PR.

Real wasabi can't be sold in powder form, because it's kind of the asshole of the flavor world.  It's only good freshly scrunched, and loses its flavor quickly after being uprooted.

Don't get me wrong, I used to use "wasabi powder" on everything, but there was no pretense that I wasn't being lied to.

I have a similar story where a friend of mine took a big old bite of wasabi thinking it was something akin to an Asian guacamole first time I took him out to a Japanese restaurant. I was coming back from the bathroom, and saw our table surrounded by waiters and him with a blue face. They all thought he was choking. He wasn't, it was just that the sh*t was so strong he couldn't breathe.

Good times.

My ex-girlfriend's (at the time) 8-year-old daughter did basically the same thing at a big family dinner at a high-end Asian restaurant. We were using the real wasabi they had very sparingly, and she wondered what it was, scooped up a huge chunk, and ate it before we could say anything or stop her.

Then we needed a young priest and an old priest. . .

How do they save the restaurants money?  Having a drive thru means you have to hire someone to run it, plus you have to pay for a whole other menu board and the speaker system to go along with it.

In theory they save the customers time, if the drive thru is running smoothly.  But all it takes is one dumbass with an absurdly large or complicated order to throw a wrench into the works.  And with all those backed up cars sitting and idling you could argue it's actually costing the customers money in lost fuel, though admittedly that would be rather small unless your engine isn't running properly.  There's also all the extra pollution those idling cars are pumping out while waiting for their food.

I'll grant they are good for handicapped persons, but they could still be accommodated without drive thrus.

Okay, not necessarily save money so much as allow a greater flow of customers to make more money.

You've got counter service inside, plus a drive thru, and you're increasing the potential customers per unit of time, which really matters at certain times of day when there's the usual rushes.

This is why I don't understand why Sonic added drive through windows.  They're not particularly fast anyway (up there with "why the fark does Skippers have a drive through?").  And now that Sonic and Arby's are the same company, I have to ask, where's my Arby's drive-in?
