I thought the only reason you were here is because you're stuck in a midlife crisis ;)

I don't find drive-thru's to be that much faster than simply going inside the restaurant, but perhaps we're doing it wrong. Usually we just 'drive-thru' and then park somewhere close to eat our food, which of course doesn't save any time whatsoever :pYeah sometimes I do that as well. They don't usually make the seating comfortable enough, which is deliberate to keep people moving.
You mean the seating inside the restaurants is uncomfortable?
That as well, but I was more talking individually. For example my dad likes to eat (solid) cheese with mayonnaise on a slice of bread, which I find disgusting.Ah yeah I guess. I can't think of anything I eat that most others won't except Old Bay on the fries apparently.
I thought that was normal in America. Or at least it was mentioned in the wikipedia article that it was used for fries as well.
Yeah that sounds comparable. The thing is though, there isn't one head of the household who gets everything here. We have to fill it in for every little thing, can decide who gets the money and they basically address letters to whoever filled in the form for that specific support. So I get all the health care support stuff right now while my gf gets the 'housing benefit'.People over here can get social support services that aren't apart from tax credits e.g. low income medical aid (Medicaid) or need based aid (TANIF). However that's not typical for everyone, only the extremely poor.
Being a student, I am sort of extremely poor. I mean, I do pretty much live from my parents and the governments money.

Hey, if we lost all the criminal scumbags, surely that would ease off on taxes.

Well there would be no more need for prisons and we could do with less police. That'd save some cash.
Well of course you could take your laptop there. If your old computer is there as well, I'm sure there must be room to sit.Yeah but no stable table out there.
Ah that's always an annoyance. Of course you could keep it on your lap, but that's not always comfortable either.
Yeah you can beat the game without getting all the masks, but personally I consider that sidequest to be part of the main game.Yeah, the sidequests do a lot for the game. I should probably try beating the game without the sidequest masks and see how I do.
I would like to pick up the Bunny Hood though, to get around faster. For the other masks it probably does not matter that much for the difficulty of the game whether you gather them or not.
Indeed. I've seldom seen a game that applied the time travelling idea as well as Majora's Mask did.There are games that do involve time traveling but not in a way where it counts down to a certain time and then it's back to square one.
Yeah, most don't have such a short timespan either. Often it's going back and forth between different era's in time without having influence on little events.
I'm still unsure about whether I liked the second half of the game or not. The part where you have to gather all your party members again from all over the world before you can go to Kefka's Tower. It did sort of take the pace out of the games story.I liked it that way. It was a matter of reuniting with everyone and ready to confront with Kefka.
Well it was fun that you could explore the whole world and go where you please. But Kefka is locked up in his tower and won't show his face again until the end and aren't any other big events anymore from that point onwards IIRC.

I can't say I have and my gf, who knows way more about the Beatles than I do, says that doesn't ring any bells either. What do they have to do with the Beatles?There's a whole wikipedia article about the Beatles in Hamburg. ^^
Bit of a long story to read all of that, but it looks like they went through an important time there in Hamburg.
Well I think we think that 'de Wallen' are world famous as well, but I doubt they are.Never heard of it. :(
There you have it. It's Amsterdams red light district of which everybody in Holland knows about, but I'm sure that it isn't as well known as we think it is abroad.
... Weird. I thought the Moulin Rouge was a street, but now I remember that I actually walked past that place during one of my trips to Paris.This reminds me, I never have been to Paris. :(
You should go there someday. It's a very nice city with lots of things to see. And with lots, I mean lots.
Lol! Not the place to be then if you don't want your wife, family or friends to find out :pWell, it's not only strip bars and brothels on the "Kiez" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiez), but also normal bars, discos and other nightclubs. So it's not a problem at all if your friends and family know you are going to the Reeperbahn.
But the problem is that it seems that EVERYBODY who stays in Hamburg visits this place during the weekends.
Oh I see. I'd find it a bit odd to go to a bar next to a hookers house, but I suppose it's handy for all those drunks who are feeling lonely :p
True as well. Fortunately I only have to look up English words and I can just type in the phrase I think is correct on Google. Then I'll see if it is commonly said or not so that I know whether it's correct.That's how I do it as well. Sometimes I already know the word I'm looking for, but I'm not entirly sure if it is the correct word... so I look up the english word and find out that I have been right with my translation. ^^
Funny thing is that sometimes I only find Dutch websites for a certain phrase. In that case, I know it's definitely wrong :P
Luckily the public transport in London is awesome, so you can get from one place to the other very quickly.Yes, it took about one hour, which isn't too bad I suppose. The only thing that wasn't too good was the price for the tickets: 40 pounds for two tickets. And when we showed the tickets to the bus driver she didn't even had a look at it. I guess we could've just hopped on to the bus without buying any tickets at all...
40 pounds? I think you didn't buy the right tickets then. Last summer me and my gf bought a 30 pounds card with which could travel with the bus and the subway for as much as we liked for six days.
