Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Same thing I do now. Actually, I wasn't allowed to have coffee either, because of the blood sugar spike. I cheated. I used to put cream in my coffee, but in Belize it wasn't available ( and butter came in cans), so I've been drinking it black and strong ever since.

Edit: I've recently discovered that I don't like the taste of coffee which has been filtered through paper.

Vinnie Tortorich suggests putting butter in your coffee.

I don't do butter anymore. Olive, or coconut oil.

...the best movie ever made was "Black Orpheus". The second best movie ever made was "The Princess Bride". I'm only stating the facts here, people.

Black Orpheus is a good movie. The best one, however, is Dr. Strangelove.

There is a huge continuity flaw in the case retrieval portion of the film. If you will recall, the first part of that portion ends with the killing of Brad.

I picked it up instantly. I have a knack for catching that sort of thing.

One I did not catch is the disappearing red dot on Mia Wallace's chest. It's there as they as Vincent is about to give her the shot. When she wretches up after receiving the shot, there is no red dot.

Dry, or with oil.

I'm a big fan of dry toast, and I prefer to make my toast in cast iron skillet.

Could interfere with navigation. Waterproofing may be easier with a buried tunnel. No matter what you are going to need a lot of concrete. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some examples of what you suggest...more or less. When I first read your question, I thought you were referring to dry situations, not under a river or bay. I guess not.

How is that working out for you? Like "The Fifth Element", as funny a distopian movie as you will find.

Okay, but your constant checking of the delivery status was tying up the interweb service.

The time continuity in the film is all screwed up as part of the plot anyway. Maybe the director just got himself as confused as we were.

Alright I'll say it, the greatest movie of all time is Godfather I. Anyone who contends otherwise is definitely an outlier and quite possibly communist.
