So did you talk to them or at least inform them that Campy is better than Shimano and why they should care?

I have no idea who those people are, so I'm just going to point out how weird the fast food joints are in places that aren't here. Chick-Fil-A? White Castle? Yeesh. On the other hand, Dunkin' Donuts isn't bad.

We had some Krispy Kreme locations out here for a while. I didn't care much for their doughnuts, to be honest. Then Krispy Kreme went away, and we're back to not having any doughnut chains. Just the little independent stores, which are better anyway.

White Castle ain't weird, it's heaven! The nearest one is two hours away. I make the pilgrimage everyonce an a while. Also, the grocery has their packaged morsels of earthly delight available in packs of six for my immediate enjoyment.


Chick-Fil-A OTOH sux monkey nutz.

What did you google to get that one? Chick-Fil-Assos?


I love Chick-Fil-A, but we don't have them in Chicago area. And we don't have Sonic. And we don't have Waffle House. Tragic.

No, but you do have Giordano's, and that's all you need.
