1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    ughhhh... my wife just informed me that the car's door was dented/scratched badly from the high winds blowing random junk (an empty old large metal coffee maker) my neighbor had laying on the side of his house.

    What do my fellow single bros spend on groceries per month? I can't get under $250-$275, though I'd like to. That's mostly organic from my local food co-op, but a few trips to the "normal" grocery store or Trader Joe's are included.

    We don't spend much more than that for a family of three, and we eat very well.

    Of course, we don't insist that everything be organically grown in the pubic hair of virgin women raised in the Himalayas, or whatever "clean" eating requires now, so you have to account for that (though we do buy a good bit of organic stuff).

    That amount is more akin to "walkin around" money. It could be a bi-weekly drinking stipend if you are a regular somewhere.

    I don't appreciate your sarcasm. Organic is important because GMOs! Higher food costs are a small price to pay to keep people safe from poisoned food. GMOs kill literally five million more people a year than hunger.

    GMOs!!!!!

    I actually don't know if organic causes other food prices to rise. I am going to pretend it does because organic is stupid.

    All kidding aside, there is some organic stuff we buy, mostly because those items taste better, but the whole organic thing taken as categorically more healthy or whatever is just silly.

    cooking your own food, can help you save a ton. You can buy a medium sized chicken (that weighs near 7 lbs) bake it, which comes out delicious, and that'll feed a single guy for up to three days (tasty leftovers). but frying expensive steaks (like near $20 new york strips can eat that budget away quick.

    The only think I consciously buy that is organic is meat because of the proven benefits of grass fed and such. Other than that I only buy organic if the price spread isn't absurd.

    I have to meet with these guys who work for a company called "Moody's". They usually make me Moody.

    my favorite trader joes item is actually the Buttermilk Pancake (and all purpose flour mix). You can make pancakes, of course, but you can also use it for flour for fried chicken, and biscuits. Its $2.99 for a box.

    I made these babies this morning... its actually so easy (just as easy as making pancakes time wise):

    Maybe Mexi-Asian's can eat buttermilk biscuits, but most of us fat whities can't touch them without causing our bellies to shake while brushing teh teeth.

    I will never understand how people can cook themselves breakfast. It's either McD's or nothing for me.
