    One thing both Aron and Jim agree on:
    a)  Harry Potter is great
    b)  Lost is great
    c)  Sapiens is great
    d) Charlie's grandpa is the worst
    Interesting. Which one is it? I would guess C or D, but I'm not sure. I certainly know B is out because what is Lost? I've never heard of it. It could be A, but I wouldn't think Jim would be a big HP guy. 
    D all the way! that crumby old man almost got poor Charlie killed!

    considering how hot they have been i think the chances are good. looking forward to that series.

    at this point i'm pulling for the BoSox to complete the sweep of the Yanks. would put us back 2.5 for the first WC.

    has anyone tried these new 'plant based' burgers like the impossible burger or beyond burger? i'm seeing them pop up on menus more and more so i'm little curious now
    I've tried the Beyond Burger a couple times, it's not bad, sears up pretty nicely. Be warned that when it's "raw" it seems nasty - kindof like wet cat food. But once cooked it's fine. Way better than the hockey-puck Boca burgers or whatever vegetarians were stuck with 10 yrs ago.
    alright, i finally got around to the Beyond Burger last night. so smell has a lot to do with my taste buds and the smell for this raw and even cooked was horrendous. i just couldn't get past it. not even ketchup, mustard, pickles and 2 slices of cheese could save it. 'when it's "raw" it seems nasty - kindof like wet cat food' is a very good 'assessment'.
    I was pondering it last night on my weekly grocery run.  I'm glad I passed it up now.  Thanks to you both for turning me off of it!  *ick*
    i mean, to each their own but it just wasn't for me. smell was really off putting.
