  1. It says “Product of Cuba” on it though, so English is a bit weird for evaporated milk meant for the domestic market.
  2. Beyond the obvious reasons, some legitimate, I think there’s still special enmity amongst Americans for Cuba and Iran because of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Iran hostage affair. It’s like if your buddy’s girlfriend cheated on him and he still gets riled up about it years later. Well, the rest of you gotta hear about it.
  3. The early part of 2015, although it feels like it’s been longer.
  4. Either that or the new writers forgot he was dead. Wish it worked that way in real life....
  5. You turned this into a Vietnam thread, but you forgot to invite President Nixon’s Head? Shame!
  6. Maybe a bit off topic, but I find 65 °F to be particularly irritating because it’s so close to ambient temperature. The heater and chiller of my humidor are constantly turning on and off. Compounding that is that unlike most places, the coast of California is routinely cool, but much higher than 65% RH. Well, the way to dry the air is to cool it, but it’s already too cold. I used to work in a building where, to get around this issue, all air coming in was chilled to 50 °F to dry it, then reheated to room temp. Then if the RH was too low, there were spritzers in the ceiling to bring it back up. Obviously the energy costs were ridiculous, but it felt exactly the same year round.
  7. You guys are costing me some money—can’t resist cigar books. It’s a sickness. One time I carried around 30 pounds of books from Estanc Duaso for 10 hours through half of Barcelona.
  8. The (probably apocryphal) claim is that the Redskins were the last to allow black players and Dallas had integrated early on, but who knows what the real reason is. In any event it’s something I wondered about for years and years living there. All the black dudes I asked about it said they were Cowboys fans because their older relatives were Cowboys fans. Never met a white Cowboys fan there that wasn’t from Texas though. Now to be fair, it’s hard to find a Redskins fan these days who isn’t beat down, so it’s possible a lot of fans jumped ship over to Dallas since you lived there.
  9. A lot of football fans in DC actually root for the Dallas Cowboys. Been that way for decades.
  10. Damn dude, all this lecturing about our supposed failures is why we left in the first place.
  11. I’m over it too. It’s an absurdly emotional time and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we all had to spend a lot of time alone with our own thoughts and some of us cracked. I can hear it when I talk to a few of my own family members on the phone—saying loopy, generally paranoid things that aren’t true. Heck, I don’t even look at the news anymore—just a bunch of people saying wacky stuff like it’s self-evident.
  12. These are certainly interesting times we’re living in. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen the Overton Window shift so radically so quickly in my lifetime. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overton_window
  13. That’s the 2018 Falcon Heavy Demo, isn’t it?
