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.

    Good point, hadn't connected the dots.



    I'm falling victim to your avatar too with posts like this - when it's only a 1 liner, I can't focus on the text. When its a paragraph, I'm OK. Until I'm done reading it. What were you saying?

    I don't understand why this video was recommended to me on YouTube: :uhoh:

    I only use YouTube to listen to music.

    There are some shirtless pics in there....at what point in the process does youtube decide that they are unacceptable photos because topless chicks are banned?

    I think you can get really good ones in various places throughout the southwest; they just tend to differ a bit regionally. I've had some killer stuff in New Mexico where they like to cover everything in a chili sauce, your choice, green or red. Years ago I had a fantastic meal in Las Vegas, NM, and one at some real old school mountain lodge just can't remember where.

    And then there's Navajo Tacos. Only ever come across those in NM and northern AZ. That's a whole next level of greasy goodness.

    I can't help but add another quick story - I was touristing in Guatemala at a regionally well known "market" of sorts, Chichicastenango and some guy had what look like an inverted wok (curved side up) over some hot coals and was throwing meat (uhh, chicken?) on it where it sizzled and cooked and eventually slid down to the lip where it was plucked and dropped into a soft taco of sorts (with some lettuce, tomatoes, and local cheese). I'm a semi-adventurous eater, but 3rd world impromptu taco stands at flea markets is not something that, on paper, I would have thought I'd go for. But it smelled so freakin good, plus a lot of locals were eating them, so I joined in. I made sure I got what was already cooking before I showed up (worried that I might get something special for the gringo) - and It was absolutely delicious.

    Only later did my group relate to me that all the locals were grinning at me when I was eating. I have no idea why - was that cat, dog, or something else? Tasted like super fresh (as in killed that morning) chicken. Even eating the veggies (often a no-no for the same reason as the water) didn't affect me. Heck, I'd go back for more now - local grins or not.

    I had iguana tacos in the Dominican Republic. It did, in fact, taste like chicken.

    Hmmm, interesting. I won't turn my nose up at it if it ever comes up again. Heck, it was so good, I might just seek it out - and really freak my fellow travelers out :)

    It's because of those Pet Shop Boys music videos you listen to.

    So my jag-you-are has one of those alert centers that displays various messages like "low windshield fluid" or as in the case below, "low outside temperature." Last night I had a dream that I was driving and the alert center came on and read "Avocado supplies depleted." And it's strange, because it's true that I don't have any avocados at home or in the car. Even stranger is that I got out of the car and checked in the upper right hand corner of the trunk where the avocados are normally located and there weren't any there. Now, keep in mind that there isn't any actual avocado supply depot in my car. But I was sure there was one last night.

    Fucking weird.

    Surprised it wasn't "Liquor Supplies Low."

    Tennis players that make silly noises... like "HOOOOO!" every time they swing their rackets.

    Why chicken flavour instant noodle smells just like Araldite?

    Why people always say, after winning something, that it's "humbling."

    At some level, I suppose I kind of understand how if you win Wimbledon once and you're now in the company of all the greats who won Wimbledon, maybe it's kind of humbling. But even then, it's a shitload more humbling to be the guy you just beat.

    What really triggered this was Shaun White saying it's humbling to have won six X Games golds in superpipe or whatever they call it. How is that humbling at all? You're the winningest guy, like, probably ever in this crap. There's no humility to be found in winning it again. Do you know what the word means, or are you just saying it because that's what you heard some Wimbledon champ say?

    Oh, and since we're on the topic.......

    X Games.
