Most people don't know that they weren't Chinese in origin (origins are traced back to California with some dispute on exactly where, but it was sometime in the early 1900's), but I guess I can thank them for being responsible for making some Americans assume that Asian people speak with some sort of bizarre cryptic ancient wisdom.

Truth to be told, the cookies themselves aren't all that hot.  I might eat half of one.  But, I do like the little fortunes and I saved up some of my favorites (add the "in bed" ending if you would like: )

*"Let's finish this up now, someone is waiting for you on that."  --the most demanding fortune cookie I've ever gotten.
*"You would like another fortune cookie." --why, yes, yes I would . . .
*"The husband is the boss - if the wife allows."  --can't argue with that.
*"Someone is watching you from afar."  --creepy.
*"You are not illiterate."  --no [email protected]#$.
*"You have an unusal equipment for success, use it properly."  --probably meant for a guy.
*"Don't Panic."  --special guest writer Douglas Adams?

Definately counts as a food that originates in the Americas, maize is native to the Mezo-American area (and in a much different form than we are accustomed to today: some sources say that the corn we're familiar with is descendant from a wild grass called teosinte approx. 7000 years ago; the first ears of corn were also considerably smaller, and the sweet corn that we like to eat as corn-on-the-cob came much later on)

Definately one of my favorite dinner staples, corn on the cob is easy to make (which is a great asset for someone that is an accident waiting to happen in the kitchen . . . . like myself) and it only takes a little bit of butter and salt, if that, to make it perfect.

One of the few foods that are truly North American in origin, the "buffalo" wing was supposedly first made at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York (hence its name) in 1964.  Hot wings are pretty much a staple of casual restaurant appetizer menus, and it's a good thing since I order them as often as they're available.  Personally, I'm not a fan of the so-called 'boneless' wings: one thing that I like about the wings is the texture and tenderness of the wing meat, which is a lot smoother than fried chicken breast strips that they tend to throw the same sauce on.

One of these days, if I'm ever in Buffalo I'm going to go to the Anchor Bar for the original thing.  http://www.anchorbar.com/

This is all some friends of mine will drink and when I started hanging out with them more on the weekends it just made it easier to go with their beer of choice, not to mention cheaper. I wasn't particularly happy with it at first, but I aquired a taste for Keystone Light. It's still not my favorite beer, and when I'm out on my own it's either Coor Light, Red Stripe, Dos Equis, or one of my other choices, but Keystone Light really isn't that bad. It's considerably more than $13 a 30 pack these days, but still not what I would call overpriced/

Her appearance isn't really the main attraction (you don't really see much of her), but you have to give credit where credit's due: Samus was the first real video game heroine. None of that "I'm-going-to-fight-evil-in-a-string-bikini" nonsense, she went in full body armor and kicked ass.

Raul Malo, the lead singer and songwriter for The Mavericks, has a great voice. Check out his wonderfully romantic solo 2006 album, "You're Only Lonely." Listen to a sample here of one of the songs, "Run to Me." Not a country album, but rather a hauntingly beautiful collection of songs, all but one of them slow and romantic. The man can sing! You'd never guess he started as a country singer, and the album shows his versatility. The Mavericks won a Grammy and the Country Music Association twice named it the Top Vocal Group. In the latter part of the '90s the band incorporated latin rhythms and became an eclectic mix of country, rockabilly, rock and roll, and salsa. In the 2000s, Raul Malo has had a successful parallel solo career.

I actually like the Egg MsMuffin, and it's my favorite McDonald breakfast item. I am not a real big fan of McDonalds or fast food in general, so "favorite" is relative here.

The drive for survival inherent in all living creatures leads to the struggle to acquire more resources, so one can say that everyone is a little "selfish".   Everyone strives to at least get enough to live on, and when they have that they strive to get enough to live comfortably; some take it further and strive to attain even more, or the most, resources.  

Most actions we take can be perceived as an action of self-interest; even actions that are preceived to be selfless can have some personal benefit attached.  You can be a generous donor to a cause, but it can be said that you might gain benefit from that action by increased social approval, and you might feel a great sense of self-satisfaction (or, if you're kind of a jerk, you might see it as a tax write-off).  That's not to say that those actions aren't good, though.

The problem arises when selfishness exceeds the want for living comfortably.  Being excessively selfish obviously is the root of greed, but acting too much on self-interest also leads to envy for what you don't have, pride for what you do have, excessive extravagence for displaying what you have, and anger when you can't get what you want.

Technically, a gossiper is often not considered much of a pariah, since they're sadly not considered an outcast so much as they're considered highlights of social groups.  They say "knowledge is power", so the reason why gossips do what they do is because perceived knowledge (whether knowingly false or not) gives them some sort of half-assed rise in social standing.  At least that's my take on it.  

Previously, I considered one of my job's perks to be the isolation from the other co-workers by a long stretch of hallway, since that removed me from the gossip circle.  After our company moved, my reception area is now considerably closer to other co-workers, and there are more people that work within my little area, so now I overhear tons of gossip, about everyone else that works there.  And, I guarantee you, if someone's talking about someone else behind their back, it's not a stretch to believe that they're probably doing the same to you.

Everyone does it at some point in time, but hopefully it's something that you grow out of.  Refusing to take part in it does make you considerably less "popular", but the "respect" of people who thrive on gossip isn't entirely too valuable, anyway.

I enjoyed this show. It's hard to look at it now with out being biased and pissed of. He did get away with murder.

Generally, yes, but it depends entirely what they're smiling about.  

 . . .  also, while a smile is lovely to wear, it's generally advised that it shouldn't be the ONLY thing you're wearing . . . unless you're with extremely limited and privileged company.

I hadn't thought of that for a long time, but I do remember. Someday they'll be saying the same thing about movies and videos, or are  they already saying that?

Hash brown potaoes, yes. McDonalds version of hash browns just don't qualify. They just don't have any taste at all. Not to say I don't eat them, I do, I just don't think of them as true hash browns. Maybe I'm just a hash browns snob.

I'm waiting, knife and fork in hand for my Thanksgiving dinner. When it comes to Thanksgiving, I'm a traditionalist. I want a Roasted Turkey with all the trimmings.

It's almost unAmerican not to like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Strawberry is my favorite and I prefer it with a glass of cold milk.

I never had grits until I was in my 20's, but once I tried them I was hooked. Most nonsoutherners or people that did not grow up with grits can usually take'em or leave'em, but I find them tasty, though when it comes to breakfast, potatoes are still my first choice.

One of my favorite movies, starring one of my favorite actors in Jimmy Stewart and directed by the master Alfred Hitchcock. The film has it all from romance to suspense and mystery. I highly suggest this film to those who have not seen it.

I can only speak to myself, because satisfaction is something that is subjective depending on someone's personality, but I agree that the most satisfying work is that which makes a positive difference somehow, either in helping other people, improving your environment/community, increasing knowledge, etc.  

There's a ton of ways to change things for the better, and when you think about it most jobs and careers are about helping others: whether you choose to do it as a counselor to help troubled people, as a doctor/vet to help hurt people/animals . . . your impact may also be indirect, like being a pharmaceutical researcher to hopefully find cures, or being an ecologist to study the impact on certain things on the environment, and hopefully that data will be used to change policy which will improve our surroundings.

A quality that many, if not all, say they have, but few actually do.  It's hard to do what you perceive as the "right thing" when everyone else around you would rather take the easy way out, and even harder to do it all the time.  Sometimes it alienates you from your peers. But, if it's any consolation, they didn't make good friends anyway if they don't appreciate that you did the right thing.

I again disagee.  "I can" describes potential ability; "I will" describes ambition; "I am" describes immediate action, which makes it the more valuable of the three.

I disagree.  The mind, particularly the human mind, has the potential to be far more both constructive and destructive, and is what drives your tongue to speak and your body to perform.

Where in the world did you get this name?  Has anyone ever been called Bettendale?  I hope not!
