i love websites that have a big pop-up that states "you must have javascript enabled to view this site." meanwhile, right behind the pop-up, i can see the site clear as day. so i obviously don't need javascript enabled, since i can see the site just fine, they just want me to turn it on for some other reason.

34 year olds are Gen-Xers, not "millennials."

Once a week LESS, not once a week. Still eating out ~4x per week vs. 5x per week 5 years ago.

If you know how to cook eating out gets really boring unless you're going to very high end restaurants. Too many places just reheat food or try and charge $20 for a plate of pasta and shrimp.

FizixJunkee: Just Another OC Homeless Guy:

One of our homeless friends, an out-of-work architect who has been living in his car for the last 3 years, got re-hired by his old company about 3 months ago. He has been busy socking away his salary for, as he said, just in case Obama got re-elected. Sure enough, he got two week notice yesterday. Several projects that the employer was expecting were canceled.

Be that as it may, I voted for the incumbent asshole rather than the magic underwear asshole because incumbent asshole is more likely to renew federal extensions on unemployment insurance. If they get renewed to the normal 99 weeks, I will still have another 54 weeks at $412 per week on the current claim. By then, I'm betting that businesses will be used to the new "normal" and start hiring again.

Well, maybe not here in California. The moron voters passed prop 30 and didn't pass prop 32, so the union bosses are high-fiving with the corrupt assholes in Sacramento and the cost of food (being homeless, we have to eat out, which is taxable) is going up.

There's a freeper among us.

Homelss, lauding more unemployment checks AND voted fo the one??

doczoidberg: I can't seem to stay away from the Old Country Buffet lately.

I really don't know why. Been going there for lunch, like, every day.

Does that count as fine dining?

When I was a kid, there was this video game for the Sega Genesis called Final Fight. You'd walk down the street beating people up, and every once in a while you'd punch a trash can and a roast chicken would fall out and restore your health.

Yeah... That's pretty much what the Old Country Buffet is like.

lucksi: Quick, up the tip minimum to 25% then. That'll fix it

The only real solution is for business owners to not pay the waitstaff anything and make their compensation solely tip based

Propain_az: President Obama will get this economy going, and then they will be able to afford to eat out whenever and where ever they like.

Only at government approved restaurants though. Can't have them eating unhealthy food.
