    I've also enjoyed watching the transformation of Carla. In this past episode, she was very mindful of what she was doing and she did a great job of articulating her strategy and her understanding of the dish when she was at judges table. Stephen seemed less of a jerk this episode. I thought he seemed kind of nice - I can't remember which other contestant it was, but he was helping someone, no? I enjoyed the little scene of the cheftestants horsing around imitating the judging of a quickfire. Cute.

    Thank you! Every time they flash Dilido lounge I think, "huh? there's a restaurant called Dildo Lounge?"

    It gave me a pause for "like a second".

    It seems kind of ironic that Radhika was let go. Winning a quick fire should be a good thing - not something that makes you next in line for being pykaged. Front of the house was not her strongest position in a restaurant, but it seems like she would still be on the show if it wasn't for the fact that she won that quickfire.

    Porn sells. Damn, now I have to watch it even though I'm sure they'll blur out the good parts. The skeptic in me is wondering if they truly do have significant others, or was this a ploy that was staged by the producers all along - like maybe it's all faked? To cheat on a bf or gf on camera is so ridiculously crass and stupid - I almost can't believe that this was real - maybe it's all just production fakery for good ratings?

    I couldn't believe that Hosea and Leah cheated on their significant others (while on camera!!!). Absolutely despicable and so disrespectful. And stupid. Just gross.

    ooooo... I haven't watched yet, but am sad that Ariane was pykag-ed. Once she got her head together, she really was doing well. I was totally rooting for her.

    I like Ariane. So far she seems to do a really good job with proteins. I also like that she isn't loaded with ego - she just seems pretty normal and wants to do her thing without any back biting.
  12. Looks like that car is parked over the cross walk. Hate it when people do that.

    El Quinto Pino

    Good point. Yes, the new(ish) wave of ambitious tapas bars are indeed places to spend a couple of hours. But you'd agree, I'm sure, that the original concept of tapear was to go from bar to bar, eating a snack at each, on the way to dinner. In Spain, overheads are sufficiently low that this is a cheap prelude to the rest of the evening. Remember, outside Barcelona, tapas are often still free. Yes, La Boqueria and Tia Pol are really restaurants. El Quinto Pino, though, fits the old tapear model, but at New York prices. It sounds like Txikito fits that description too. I am
  14. I totally feel for you... Several years ago, I actually ran over a bicyclist who was riding on the sidewalk from the wrong direction. He sued me for $1m in damages (he wasn't that damaged as he was able to get up and start throwing punches as me). Because I was exiting a parking complex onto a street that would only allow me to turn left (he came from the right), the lawsuit was found in my favor. Holy! Thank goodness!!! I once got hit by a bicyclist while I was walking - delivery guy who was riding against traffic and going through a light. I was knocked down - not hurt, but
  15. If only we could harness this "energy". I wonder what it would be worth on the futures exchange? More than just a hill of beans, I'm sure.
  16. Wasn't it you who said it in response to Stone's post about Ko? ("scrotum of the lord")
  17. But isn't one version/flavor of this axiom that we can neither prove nor disprove the existence of an infinite cardinal strictly between aleph naught and 2^aleph naught? I believe we're still working with numbers...
