2003-05-03 08:34:05 AM  
I don't really care about this.. what I am wondering is.. where is my post regarding that hiker who had his arm caught under a boulder??
2003-05-03 08:36:01 AM  
Seems stupid for any restaraunt to refuse customers.

I mean, c'mon... this will fix all their problems.
2003-05-03 08:37:03 AM  
LOL, Jabber.
2003-05-03 08:40:41 AM  
Now.. what I am wondering is.. which "indian" indians are they talking about. NDNs? Or Indians. From India, or North America?

Who decides who's called what, anyway?
2003-05-03 08:42:22 AM  
I believe that Indians, Pakistanis, et al are now considered Asian.
2003-05-03 08:44:20 AM  
"...] I will pursue this until I die."

Way to go, dude. Concentrate on the important things in life.

2003-05-03 08:44:40 AM  
Babsbunny thank you.. now I am not so confused. But wait.. why are they still called "Indians?"
2003-05-03 08:48:17 AM  
Countries of Asia:








Burma (Myanmar)




Hong Kong









Korea, North

Korea, South















Saudi Arabia


Sri Lanka







United Arab Emirates

Babsbunny, but what about the native american indians? Didn't everyone come from africa to begin with?
2003-05-03 08:50:55 AM  
I think they [american indians] came across the Bering Strait...right?
2003-05-03 08:51:32 AM  
...which would make them Asian....
2003-05-03 08:52:12 AM  
... can't keep up any longer .....
2003-05-03 08:52:42 AM  
I'm guessing everyone is african.
2003-05-03 08:53:32 AM  
HEy you are in houston! I lived in Texas for 21 years! Now I'm in Oregon. Dunno why.
2003-05-03 08:56:02 AM  
Gryn - where in Oregon? Pretty state - too depressing....
2003-05-03 08:56:57 AM  
In Eugene. Not really that depressing. It's close to the beach, and close to snow skiing,.. probably have good Babsbunny slopes.
2003-05-03 08:59:15 AM  
gimme a hot sandy beach over slopes any day - originally from Canada....don't miss snow or cold weather....
2003-05-03 09:00:57 AM  
Yeah.. sure.. but Texas beaches also have tarballs, if I recall. God that sucked. Oh, and the film left on the windshield of my vehicle! The gulf of mexico isn't really all that pretty.. unless it is night time and you are looking out at the lights of the oil rigs on the sea.
2003-05-03 09:02:15 AM  
From the article... It was our first trip in our new 64,000 Mercedes.

Maybe the fact that they like to drop that little tidbit randomly made the restaurant think they'd be a pain to serve.

Hey waiter, I'm in my new 1000 suit, so that means you need to make this food spicier.
2003-05-03 09:03:21 AM  
Hey Seb, stop trying to hijack our hijack!
2003-05-03 09:04:06 AM  
Sounds to me more like a rich man not recieving the respect he thinks he deserves because of the size of his wallet.
2003-05-03 09:04:43 AM  
Oh great.. I guess it's back to "on topic."
2003-05-03 09:04:46 AM  
actually, the area has been cleaned up a lot - I recall the tarballs from the 70's and 80's - how nasty was that?!

but, you are right - it can't EVEN compare to the Oregon coast line. i'll still take it over snow, though........
2003-05-03 09:07:09 AM  
oh, right...back on topic.

i like sushi.
2003-05-03 09:08:21 AM  
Babsbaby.. it doesn't snow much here. And here are 3 pictures I've taken of the Oregon coast:

2003-05-03 09:12:19 AM  
awesome! i remember it from when i was a kid...beautiful photos....
2003-05-03 09:13:13 AM  
Thanks! And how do you look nude?:

'cause I can draw you, too.
2003-05-03 09:14:05 AM  

the indian restaurant owner was referring to indians and pakistanis as asians. he was saying that they tailor their indian food for english people (ie milder than normal) and that 'asians' (in which he includes indians and pakistanis) tend to want much hotter food.

still makes him a racist for judging people by the color of their skin. I'm sure there are plenty of people with indian names, and indian skin, that grew up in england or american and would be pretty content with the milder variety of the food.

2003-05-03 09:15:13 AM  
Heh. That's nothing. Ya wanna talk racism? Every time I am in Kyoto and I wanna go to some brothel to get my pipes cleaned, well, every damn time I walk in it's all "No Gaijin! No Gaijin!"

Now that my friend, is truly awful.

2003-05-03 09:16:55 AM  
What is Gaijin? If it means rotting penis, then they might be on to something....
2003-05-03 09:16:59 AM  
El_Camino_SS I saw a brothel in Nevada as I was driving along the road toward Vegas. I STILL didn't believe it was there, myself.

Why would I ever PAY to be with a woman??
2003-05-03 09:20:04 AM  

Whities like you and me have to use the frumpy 60-year-olds wandering the street behind the bath house. It's all OK though, they have better rates.
2003-05-03 09:20:26 AM  
Gaijin translate to "foreigner" in japanese i mean. Or the "Western people"
2003-05-03 09:23:10 AM  
got it.

i embrace the day w/ yet more culture and knowledge.......

"This ruined our holiday."

If being turned down by a restaurant ruins your holiday, you have bigger problems.
2003-05-03 09:55:56 AM  
An Indian restaurant admits that it regularly turns away Asian diners because they are too much "hassle"

This better not start a trend, or I'll never get served anywhere!

/went into a fast food joint yesterday and my order took longer than it took to make the food.

/no mustard, no mayo, no salt on the fries, don't dip it, easy on the ice, real easy on the ice, charge me for a refill blah blah blah...... repeat 4 times until the idiot finally gets it.
2003-05-03 10:09:57 AM  
That's why I always bring my own, sauces and seasonings. Wife thinks I'm nutz.

It was special for our 65th birthdays and 40th wedding anniversary....I suffered a heart attack last year....I will pursue this until I die."

Given his health and age, that might not be very long.

their menu was designed for the English who do not like their Indian food to be too hot

Any Indian restaurant I've ever been in in London is usually full of post-pub pissheads engaged in a masochistic competition to see who can finish the hottest curry.

As someone who can knock back a Phal, barely breaking sweat, I usually won. Happy days.
2003-05-03 10:16:49 AM  

Damn it man, I hate people like you. There's 20 people in line, and there's always one person who has to get everything special and complain about everything on their order. Of course this person takes longer than all the other people combined to serve. It's just selfish. And I'm sitting their waiting behind them in hunger pangs. Damnit, it's fast food. If you want slow food go somewhere else!

The only thing that annoys me more is when something stupid happens, like the cashier closed the drawer before giving those last three pennies to the customer. Then we have to wait for the manager to stop masturbating in the back room, clean himself off, and waddle to the front to take care of it. Pisses me off to no end.

'I'll have the blandest thing on the menu, please'

Guess the reference, get a prize (not really)

"The issue is not race....We say we are fully booked if Asians ask."

So what is the issue, if this only applies to Asians?
