I tried those "wing street wings" (BBQ) that Pizza Hut is advertising all over the television. Thought they were blah. Best wings in this area are from a place called Pizza Siena.

They're probably e-classes nowadays. ;)
Oh, don't get me started. I've had to take several of those horrid things, and the amount of learning that takes place there is minimal. Usually the students are rather lazy, and the assignments are mostly busywork, since it's next to impossible to have a good discussion online (I had one class that did achieve it once, but never again). I don't want to teach one, ever.

Good wings from a pizza place? Is anathema!

But I hear the best Buffalo wings (and yes, it should be capitalised) come from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY.

Its unfortunate that we can't insert a random number generator on this thread and that the post didn't get numbers based on order but rather based on the generator.

"Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu is the Māori name for a hill, 305 metres (1,000 ft) high, close to Porangahau, south of Waipukurau in southern Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. The name is often shortened to Taumata by the locals for ease of conversation. The New Zealand Geographic Placenames Database, maintained by Land Information New Zealand, records the name as "Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu", a hill at 40.3480 S, 176.5321 E.[1] It has gained a measure of fame as it is the longest place-names in all English - speaking countries. It is featured in a Mountain Dew jingle and it is also in the 1979 single "Lone Ranger" by British band Quantum Jump. It is the subject of a 1960 song by the New Zealand balladeer Peter Cape[2], as well as Hardcore DJ's Darkraver and DJ Vince in the song 'Thunderground'."

The Welsh are also known for their preposterously long place names.

Sometimes I sit here and ponder

Well, the first two tags I see at the bottom are "waste of time" and "idle pleasures"...  ;D

I just can't seem to settle on an avatar!  It's annoying me as well, but I'm holding out for that "just right one."  ;D

You're just now discovering a forty-year-old song?
Actually I only know about it now because they've been playing it on a commercial.

I see. You really should pay more attention to the Beatles: they almost single-handedly lifted rock and roll from its roots in blues and teenage rebellion into an art form. However, "All You Need Is Love" is definitely not their best song.

I find it odd that this song would be used in a commercial, as it seems counterproductive to the BUY THIS NOW! message of most advertisements. Do you know what the advertisers were trying to sell?

My Father gave me a Beatles CD when I was about 15. At the time I was listening to much heavier stuff and probably didn't give it much of a chance. Regarding the commercial, I don't recall the product, but I've seen the commercial a few times now and will probably see it again.

In 1964, the Beatles were the heavier stuff. Really, you should give them a chance; three more tremendously talented people never played with John Lennon. ;D

As for the commercial, if you have seen it several times and still don't know what they're selling, the advertisers have failed. It seems too many of them focus on getting people to pay attention--but that's only the first step. An effective advertisement will also get people to remember the product and go buy it.
