    They go great with Hoegaarten. I like the chili ketchup and eggplant mayo best, so far.

    In all honesty I'd rather have In 'n Out fries.... but, yeah, I'm guessing the draw is the Belgian beer...

    1. You are preparing to sit down and eat at an extremely fancy restaraunt. The food that is brought to you is not what you ordered, but nonetheless looks and smells delicious. Do you send it back or eat it?

    2. There is a black box in front of you, sitting on a white pedestal shaped like a doric column. Something from your childhood is in it. What's in the box?

    3. Pick a number between 1 and 3 and explain in more than ten words, but less than twenty why you chose it.

    4. If you could choose one historical figure to be your boss for one day, who would it be?

    5. You find a wallet on the ground, inside is ten dollars and a note that reads "If this wallet is lost, please return to 123 Broad st. for a $11 reward". would you return it, keep the money and toss the wallet, or put the wallet back where you found it?

    6. Pick one city in the world outside the U.S. that would symbolize to a total stranger, the essensce of who you envision yourself to be.

    This is actually kind of neat.

    1. You are preparing to sit down and eat at an extremely fancy restaraunt. The food that is brought to you is not what you ordered, but nonetheless looks and smells delicious. Do you send it back or eat it?

    Question the waiter, hold off the final decision until you are answered.

    2. There is a black box in front of you, sitting on a white pedestal shaped like a doric column. Something from your childhood is in it. What's in the box?

    Ain't gonna happen.

    3. Pick a number between 1 and 3 and explain in more than ten words, but less than twenty why you chose it.

    1.77245 -- It is approximately the square root of pi, as well as the Gamma Function evaluated at one half.

    4. If you could choose one historical figure to be your boss for one day, who would it be?

    James Madison

    5. You find a wallet on the ground, inside is ten dollars and a note that reads "If this wallet is lost, please return to 123 Broad st. for a $11 reward". would you return it, keep the money and toss the wallet, or put the wallet back where you found it?

    Oh, return it.

    6. Pick one city in the world outside the U.S. that would symbolize to a total stranger, the essensce of who you envision yourself to be.

    From limited knowledge, I'd pick Cambridge.

    So far, Tangerine is ahead with (I assume) a Richard Hell reference, but it's still anyone's game.
