I'm a convert to Carolinianism and I might go for all of that... but y'all can have my Dr. Pepper.

Hey, that net was good, it paired well with the cheesies and brisket, but I could have used a few more Dr. Peppers.

You could use the net to floss with after y'all were done eating to get the bits of brisket stuck between your teeth.

Around here these days, Mr. Pibb is only sold as Pibb Extreme. I think it still tastes the same, but the new name ticks me off whenever I see it instead of Dr. Pepper in soda fountains. If I have to ask for it, I refuse to use that name and call it Mr. Pibb and the cashiers know what I mean. In either case, I'd prefer Faygo Rock 'n Rye, but I don't know if that's sold anywhere other than Michigan.

I do love some Verner's too. Another Michigan made pop (and yes, you heathens, it's pop) that I wish I could get here in Kentucky. Can't say that I know anything about Juggalos and what they drink, but I do have some recollection that the ICP might have a midwest connection, so it could make sense. Faygo Rock & Rye is just flat out good though (a sort of mix of Dr. Pepper, cherry, and vanilla, I think)Some people think that Big Red tastes kind of like it, but those people are wrong. In a vacuum, I'd probably say it's too sweet for my tastes now, but it just takes me back to my childhood.

Nope, the pilot ripped the black boxes out and threw them into the sea before turning again and flying toward the Nazi base in Antarctica or Diego Garcia or Iran or wherever the plane REALLY is.

Reaching those destinations from the area of the pinging probably required a mid-air refueling, too. This would be a real trick on a 777-300 which is not equipped for it. I would call up anyone with a mid-air refueler and ask where their planes were at the time.

It was my favorite. But only after hearing that you can disintegrate a nail faster in RC than any other brand.

First rule of the secretive sites in Nevada is we don't about the secretive sites in Nevada. Same rule as the Fight Club, only with aliens.
