    who cares?

    their burrittos are mighty tasty, and to add to that, i once got picked up by a cashier at the b'ville on columbus ave (baby liked my lycra clad 'back'), and they almost sponsored my team (back in the mid 90s). needless to say, i like 'em.

    mm planet-covering goodness.

    you kow, if we insulate enough of the planet with trash, it may reflect enough UV rays to keep us from burning up!

    at the very least, it will help keep out the mind control rays.

    On Topic, I think that this problem is prevalent in the mexican food arena. The wife went to Taco Cabana the other night, and I could not believe the mountain of trash left over by a three taco combo.

    They must all be migrating to the South East then. They are sprouting everywhere.

    I think the roaches carry the raw materials. Toronto is a bit cold for roaches.

    Not to mention increased methane output into the atmosphere courtesy of de beans.
