The 2018 Midterms Game Day Thread of Angst, Worry, (and maybe some hope?)


#2030

Yeah, I thought of that after I posted.

Guess it’s only MS that I’d never set foot in for any reason.


#2031

The Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale, MS is worth the visit.


#2032

Kansas and Nebraska are nothing more than inconvenient obstacles between places worth visiting for me. I mean Mississippi and Alabama rank worse for me, but it’s like saying I like getting stabbed in the eye less than I would like getting shot in the foot.


#2033

So does Florida. I got to tour the Vehicle Assembly Building right before they stopped tours. It was amazing.


#2034

It’s fracking huge!

And, my god, those crawlers that transported the shuttle?! It is hard to appreciate the scale of those too.


#2035

Yeah. It has its own weather!


#2036

I have never done the south, the culture never seemed that attractive to me there and the wildlife never helped. Plus, well, humidity sucks.


#2037

I don’t disagree with a word you said. I genuinely hate visiting Florida. Too damn hot and humid. Give me blizzards any day over Orlando in August.


#2038

But it’s a dry humidity.


#2039

In our favor, we do have the most reliably not-shitty biscuits thanks to easy access to White Lily flour. As time marches on, that increasingly strikes me as the only unique positive of the entire region.


#2040

and the waffle houses I suppose. :)


#2041

Despite repeatedly subjecting my intestinal tract to their peculiar oeuvre, I’m not sure I would ever describe Waffle House as a positive.


#2042

@ArmandoPenblade, you are obviously the gastronomic expert I have been seeking. Which is worse: eating at Waffle House, or eating one (two) McGriddle(s)?


#2043

Of course, there’s another good reason not to go to a Waffle House:


#2044

The latter, solely because McDonald’s biscuits are 4,000 times superior to the shit sandwich that is a McGriddle, and McDonald’s aren’t even in the top ten best chain restaurants for their biscuits.

If you live in a part of the country where you can only get McGriddles on All-Day Breakfast at McD’s, I would almost say I pity you, until I remember that literally every single other facet of your life is better than anyone living in the south.


#2045

I recommend the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham. I’ve been there twice, and I was deeply affected each time.


#2046

Der Waffle Haus!

Man, I loved the first season of that show.


#2047

Alton had a great show about southern vs. northern biscuits. Southern is, of course, superior.


#2048

Is that Dead Like Me?


#2049

Yup. Mandy Patinkin hands out post-it notes of death.
