Too lazy to cook; too lazy to be specific

BryanL, the web presence of whom I have recently re-found, has posted his food categorization. I like it and will be incorporating it into my conversations. Be prepared. (Though 2.5 will just be replaced with Wolfgang Puck Express as it is the only known example in the Atlanta area. Also, it will be a rare moment I do not try to deny the existence of Cheesecake Factory)

LEVEL ONE FAST: McDonalds, BK, Bell, KFC… the standbys. Cheap. Greasy. Traditional.

LEVEL TWO FAST: Counter-service “meal replacement” trend. Boston Market, Chipotle and ilk, Punch’s, probably that Potbelly place, Baja Sol. The ingredient quality is a notch above Level One, as are the prices.

LEVEL TWO POINT FIVE FAST: Counter Service ordering and paying, but they bring the food to you. Wild Noodles, Noodles & Company.

LEVEL ONE SLOW: Applebees, TGI Fridays, Ruby Tuesdays

LEVEL TWO SLOW: Expensive chains (PF Changs, Cheesecake Fucking Factory)

LEVEL THREE SLOW: Real restaurant.

LEVEL FOUR SLOW: Real restaurant where you drop a wad.

Reduced bandwidth link Here, 1/2 size Here.

Whether Netflix should wither

With all of the Superbowl ads and general media saturation, the Blockbuster dvd by mail service has been in the air recently.  The law school has always seemed to have a high adoption rate for netflix, and a cheaper service will obviously appeal to a lot of “poor” Emory Law Students always looking to save a buck.
Despite being demonstrably cheaper I have no interest in switching.  The 470+ movies in my queue, and the 1000+ ratings i have invested would be a rational reason not to switch, but in all honesty id does not even get to that.
I feel an emotional attachment to Netflix and a repulsion to Blockbuster.  The question is, why?

Ice, baby.

Those of you who live up north will be less than impressed, but this is what it takes to bring Atlanta to its knees.

Why I hate the MR forums

At the risk of sounding like I am giving legal advice (I am not, and you would be a fool and a Communist to think so), every person and every post in this 3 page thread as of this posting is wrong.

Normally I back away slowly when people start talking about RIAA brainwashing, etc (and I don’t give a darn about suing a dead person; pre trial litigation is exhausting with one party) but if this is the kind of “knowledge” FUD causes it starts to interfere with more important battles.
