Re: “Best Deli

Why do YOU hate people so much? Especially people who work hard and get rewarded for it? You are so filled with disdain for someone who wants to do a better job and get rewarded for it that it is some kind of derangement syndrome. I am not the one that says 'gee, you are working really hard and doing a good job but to be fair everyone should get paid the same' or 'hey their Mr. business owner, I am not in your business at all but I have decided that you can afford this.'

Go work a tipped or commission job, work your ass off to serve/sell as much as you can and when the slacker who you are having to cover for gets the same check tell me how that is not how it works. My guess, however, is you would be the beneficiary of the system and take the latter role so your mind would never change. Getting what you didn't earn because someone else got more is some kind of Bizarro World ideal.

Re: “Best Deli

Dock Street Theater ain't on a dock, but when the theater was built, the street name was Dock St. , going down to the wharves.
And everyone should be paid the same? BOY, the servers at Hyman's are gonna love getting paid the same as the servers in Charleston Place.

Re: “Shining a light on UFO sightings

Fact. There is something we don't completely understand flying blithely through our airspace. Fact. It displays intelligence and maneuvers we are not capable of replicating. Everything after that is speculation, but we need to deal with the facts and try to figure it out. Are we going to? Extremely unlikely.

Re: “Best Deli

Why do you hate people so goddamn much, dude? You're a hate-filled person, and I think you need love and UBI in your life.

Re: “Best Neighborhood

But there's nowhere to park. So get there around 6 or 7 if you want to park in less than 8 or 9 blocks away from it.

Re: “Best Deli

"No it wouldn't and nobody would not be able to reward people who work harder to serve me better. Instead the grumpy, unorganized and slow servers would get paid the same as the pleasant, efficient and fast servers who bust their ass to make it a better experience.

But at least everyone would get paid the same. No sense in having systems that reward hard work when you can have a systems that makes sure that even the mediocre get paid the same."

That's not how any of that works, but OK.

Re: “Best News for West Ashley Sweet Tooths

Lauren & her treats are fantastic, but I think city paper missed the mark here by not realizing that Chrisophes is now open in WA as well. The variety & selection available at one any given moment is a true sweet-tooth heaven.

Re: “Shining a light on UFO sightings

Here's my theory about flying saucers by way of an anagram I found a few years ago. Rearrange the letters of the first part to get the second part:
Lucifer and his army of angels ~ had alien flying saucer forms.

Scott did a kick ass job with the illustrations. Twiki was my favorite until I saw R2

Re: “Shining a light on UFO sightings

Yes, there is probably something out there. And since they are many light-decades and hundreds of years of travel away, they will most likely stay out there.
If not, could be trouble, as they have almost certainly made a one way trip.

Re: “What's your spirit robot?

Everyone's "spirit robot" is their smartphone. They look at it more than they do anything else. Fact.

One study found that the average American checks his/her smartphone 48 times per day. I found that number seemed quite low.

People are just getting more boring. Just more fucking boring.
