Eating cow eyeballs. I hear they are firm, gelatinous and tasteless.



Except they were sheep's eyeballs.

Maybe cows' eyeballs are different?

I volunteer you to find out, Mitchell.

I've eaten my share of fish eyeballs.

I won't be going to Mrs Stahl's for knishes any time soon. It has been extinct for - what - a couple of years? And was pretty much a pizza joint even before that.

Come on, Mr Cutlets, don't just reproduce ill-informed links.

I won't be going back to jail. Unless I get careless.
Cambridge University Professor of Electrical Engineering, Sir Charles Oatley, in October, 1948, along with his student Dennis McMullan, began the research that led to the production of the first scanning electron microscope in 1965.

Are they all like that? I always refer to the one in Park Slope as the People's Food Collective.

The Hanover and Lebanon Co-ops (NH) seem to be an exception they feel more like a Whole Foods, though not quite as spendy. But otherwise, yeah that vibe seems to be the rule.

One is often told that it is very wrong to attack religion because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it. (Bertrand Russell)

Believing there is no god gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. (Penn Jillette)

Ordering the following dish at L'Absinthe, even though I like the restaurant:

Crispy Snail Nuggets in Water Melon Gazpacho with Balsamic Vinigar [sic] and Goat Cheese Crumble

Is it a sort of dare?
