I have a dream, that one day men will be judged not by the size of their hot dog, but the contents in it's casing.

I went to costco yesterday and started scoping out the dog line from the back of the line for a til. carefully measuring and calculating the time needed to get through, but from the time i got in the checkout line to the time i got through the checkout line, it never moved. There was only 1 guy working in there, and i guess the guy at the front ordered something complicated or some poo poo, because the line wasn't going anywhere.

I ended up leaving without 1/4 pound of all beef in my belly, so when i got home i dug into the 2lb bag of broccoli i got there. Biggest mistake of my life. All night i was releasing the most vile toxic gas, if i had a cat, it surely would have been killed by it.

Hopefully others can learn from my mistake, no matter how long the line, don't leave without your $1.50 dog. It's not worth it.

Does the Costco Card give me 2% on dogs because its Costco, or 3% because its dining?

The food courts in canada are cash only, so if you buy 2000 dogs there a year, you're losing out on the entire extra cost of your executive membership.

Where you getting 93 octane? It's only 91 around here.

Higher altitudes means less air, meaning a lower octane level is needed. you'll usually find 93 in areas closer to sea level.


Except California because California sucks.

Is there such thing as bad maple syrup??

There are grades of maple syrup based on darkness. The darker the syrup, the stronger the flavor. costco's syrup is grade A dark which is pretty good. grade A golden is junk, grade A very dark is too much for some folks and usually only used for baking.

Yeah but what am I supposed to eat if the power is out for more than one day?

Family members and pets, in that order.


These meals are generally designed so you just add boiling water and wait for 10 minutes.

You can boil water with fire, which doesn't require electricity.

These meals generally make it hard to poop as well, which means you don't have to worry about toilet flushing with no running water.

I made a troubling discovery today when I learned my church no longer carries lactose free milk.

lactose free milk isn't actually lactose free. It's just milk with the lactase enzyme added because your stupid body doesn't produce it(or possibly your intestinal microbiome doesn't produce it). You can get the same thing by buying any lactase pill like lactaid and taking one every time you drink regular milk or eat regular cheese and not have to limit yourself to stuff labeled lactose free.

https://www.costco.com/Kirkland-Signature-Fast-Acting-Lactase%2C-180-Caplets.product.100016086.html

Just watch because some brands are only 3000u of lactase per pill where some are 9000u.

Grab the 9000u, slam a couple back while waiting in line and smash a piece or two of pizza on the way out, you might not even poo poo yourself on the way home.

First move? Google up a Costco Gas in the area where I think I will need to fill up.

Not a SINGLE stop between the San Fernando Valley and Tracy (where you turn left to the bay)

OK I get it. No populations that can sustain a Costco.

But check this. What about a Food Court PLUS Gas Station combo. Right in the middle of the stretch. :thunk:

It's a sign, you must stop and get gas.

And maybe fill your car up with fuel.

They should have some carts at the back of the store so when you go in for 3 things but then your arms are full halfway through you can abort your cartless run.

Also, paint a line down the middle of every aisle, and maybe people will subconsciously treat it like a 2 lane road instead of going 3 wide in the same loving direction and then stopping to chat creating a road block.

I've exercised so much loving self restraint not buying a pack of reko pizelles every costco trip because they're like 500 calories a piece and it's easy to eat like 30 in a sitting. Now my local grocery story has small packs of them and now i have to avoid the whole "ethnic" section.
