I notice the TV commercials for Lasik Surgery have a lot of fine print across the bottom of the screen.
If you can read the fine print, you probably couldn't benefit from Lasik.
I almost lost control of my coffee on that one!

Just went on a scotter ride with Mrs. JB... road to local "mountain" that has a road up to nice overlook. Sign at the bottom of "mountain"... "NO MOTORCYCLES." Lame.

TNLP and I had a spat back in 2015 over fried potatoes. He thinks waffle fries are an acceptable form of fried potatoes and I can't stand them. We've never really resolved that issue and he's quick to bring it up every time we disagree about anything else. Maybe coco could counsel us.

It's not about the nail.
They're two different things. Seriously. Who could ever consider waffle fries as even an unacceptable form of fried potatoes?
OK, you lost me with your quadrupedal negative. Do you like waffle fries or not?
Quadruple? Dude, just because you're in one of "those states" doesn't mean you have to stay crazy all the time. And it isn't even noon yet for you, right?
You have asked for my counsel: Waffle fried are freakin' awesome.

I wasn't a fan of waffle fries the first few times I had them. I've reformed... but they're best as a vehicle for sauce. A good french fry is a vehicle for salt.
I have found common ground with John Boy.

We had dinner with friends this evening and I converted a cigar smoker to pipes. I let him smoke a mix of 1q and lane cherry in last years poy.

That kind of made me want to watch The Master with Lee Van Cleef and Sho Kosugi, which also had a disappointing finish.
