They always seem to have the McRib, Nurburger is only Germany (go to Belgium/netherlands/etc.. and you won't find it) and it seems that there are a few specialty burgers peppered throughout Europe (Big & Tasty Bacon, CBO, 1955 Burger, NYCrispy, etc..) all will have one or two, but no McD's will have them all, and they constantly rotate out as well. When you can catch the potato wedges (forget what they call them) definitely give them a shot, they're freakin good.

For those of you who aren't yet jealous enough.... This is an average European McDonald's, a lot of them are far FAR nicer inside than even this one:

They had the 1955 there as well, along with several shrimp-based meals, a veggieburger, and a bunch of cakes and pasty things, along with all the usual fare (burgers, doppelburgers, mcnuggets, wraps, etc.) If we go back, I'll probably try the 1955, assuming I can figure out how to say "1955" in German. (I'm trying very hard to break the ignorant American stereotype and be accommodating of the local language.)

And the potato wedges- I assume you mean "American Fries"? I find this terribly ironic- can't imagine any American dipping their fries in sour cream.


Oh, and the picture- yeah, that's almost exactly what the one we went into looked like.

Say "55 Burger" that's how I hear Germans order it, haha. Or if you're really set on German fünfundfünfzig is 55. As for the potato wedges, they occasionally have potato wedges, not the "American Fries" I'm not such a fan of said "American Fries" but the wedges are awesome when you can find them.

Didn't care for the soy milk, but the almond-based stuff tastes great (better than cows milk, IMO) works well on cereal, and is 60 cal per 8oz serving and doesn't **** with the digestive system at all.

An added bonus is that it typically stays fresh in the fridge for a month or two, as opposed to cows milk which you're lucky to get a full week out of. This is convenient for me, as when I get back home from a 2 or 3 week trip, I've still got drinkable milk in the fridge.
I'm for sure gonna give it a try, sounds right up my alley, because I LOVE milk, and having to keep my milk intake low kills me, then again so does not keeping it low. I love almonds too, so an almond based milk surely is good stuff.

So here I am..at work and flipping through channels. You see, I have one satellite box that is FULLY authorized to get every channel (normally I have to activate stuff..but it's not problem). Anyway, I'm skimming the adult channels and I see the title "This ain't Avatar" so I decide to see W T F this is about. It's on the Hustler network BTW..go figure.

I am just now finally able to sit up after the cramps I got in my stomach from laughing so hard. I **** you guys not, it's a porno themed on avatar...down to the blue painted people and all the attire, lighting, set, jungle noises and everything. Someone seriously thought that was a good idea.

I'd be so bold as to... use my *****...

I love getting people trying to race me. I'll blip the gas and just let them take off and do their thing. They could probably beat me anyway. Stock engine, heavier than stock, and a trans about to **** itself, which is probably robbing even more power. My car is a SLUG!

PS, are those ******* red wiper blades? Or is that just the light hitting it just right?

This is on my mind this morning.



I know the newer Ferraris are "better", or, at least, much faster, but this may still be my favorite among modern Ferraris.

I was going to purchase one until I saw what an ordeal it is to change the clutch and perform other maintenance procedures.

I was going to purchase one until I remembered that I work in a bookstore.

Regardless, they are cheap. You can get a 355 for cheaper than a new Accord.
