    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Fish 'n chips

    Are they really as tasty as they say?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    They can be, I've had some good fissh-n-chips in the states but the ones I had in the UK were tasteless. I actually prefer catfish and hush puppies to the fish-n-chips cod.

    I've had fish 'n chips in the U.S. and the U.K. and the U.K. has the better taste-test results for sure. Plus, in the U.K. you always get them with mushy peas, whereas in the U.S. never (or at least not that I've seen). And, you get vinegar with your chips in the U.K. whereas only occasionally in the U.S.

    Going back to the U.K. in a couple of weeks; should be a good time!

    Some infos + places:

    Friday evening is certainly the time to try Fish and chips - traditionally served with mushy peas, and if eating inside white bread and butter and a pot of tea. Sprinkle fish and chips with salt and vinegar. Some of us will accompany this with a pickled onion. Sadly we no longer have fish and chips served in newspaper :-(

    Absolutely! (if you know the right place!) Squires Fish & Chips - in the village where I grew up (Braunton, North Devon, U.K.), now back to the other important question on everyone's lips:

    Used to do a 100 miler and the only place to eat was around the 50 mile mark and it was at a fish and chip shop. The organisers even allowed time out of 1 hour if you had Lunch there.

    But Fish and chips at a Local shop. Look for the one that has a queue outside if there are more than two and Never go to one of the Chain shops like "Harry Ramsden".Only been in one and they served Fish and chips--No choice of fish--It was Fish and chips. I asked the question "What Fish"? only to be told it was Pollock or Whiting. I won't even give that to the cat.

    Cod- Skate or Plaice are my choice and in that order. Or if not feeling fishy then a saveloy or Cod Roe.

    Fish and chips is variable. In and around our local area (by the coast), we have four year-round fish and chip shops (some are summer season only, and not worth bothering with). I've had good in all of them, and bad in all of them. Out of season, they cook the fish to order, which makes a difference, IMO
