    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.

    I hope I never travel with anyone who thinks eating the local cuisine is unpatriotic. That is seriously delusional and I'd want to stay away from the eventual racist brawl that person will start

    I don't eat the native cuisine because I fear it would offend the Lord. When you dine of foreign cuisine, you partake in the lifeways of another people. But the Lord saw fit to bring me into the world as American, so I don't think I should contravene his will.

    It's funny I used to capitalize but then in a dream I got the message of "Hey man, you're kind of overdoing it." So now I don't anymore.

    Don't forget Fruity Pebbles and Wheat Thins.

    Sometimes I get a special dispensation to eat foreign foods, such as pizza. But only if it is STL style.

    Going to foreign McDonald's is actually kind if entertaining (more so than domestic).

    They often serve goofy items... and some even have beer. Not saying you should eat dinner there, but it could be fun to poke your head in and get some weird snack.

    We stayed near a McDonald's in Florence, and while we never went in, I remember that they had really great lighting in there. It was a lot of low, indirect lighting that made for a much better ambience than any place in the states.

    Can somebody educate me as to what distinguishes St. Louis style pizza from any other normal pizza?

    I googled it and I don't think I would be into it. There is this place in New York, right by where I work called "Pie" that seems to be similar to St. Louis style. L'Incandescent, would love it. For some reason it is kind of expensive though.

    The keys to St. Louis style pizza are a cracker-like crust made without yeast and Provel cheese. Also, it is cut tavern style (into squares). The classic source of St. Louis style pizza is Imo's, which is a STL-based pizza chain.

    If any of you ever come to visit me in STL, we will go to Imo's.

    Mcdonalds in foreign countries actually incorporate local cuisine. Like lobster rolls in Maine (no more) or patbingsu in Korea

    Importing labor from STL isn't cheap.
