It is immediately south of the border, in fact

The NC SC border

And it's wonderfully, hilariously terrible. I wish I could have seen it in its heyday

It's definitely a mixed bag of feelings. Being raised in small towns makes a lot of the poo poo I've posted give me nostalgia, but my life is unquestionably better having gotten out.

I don't know that I really want to move back, I'm sure it's rose tinted glasses, but it grows ever more tempting now that remote jobs are more acceptable.

If you can make NYC money and live in BFE you've got it made, as long as that slow, sparse lifestyle appeals to you

Tomato juice isn't stinky. It's delicious. You have inferior olfactory receptors and your offense is noted and disregarded.

Stinky and delicious are not contradictory concepts

Deep fried pecan pie on a stick is the best. They have to fry it straight from the freezer or else it’ll melt.

Pecan pie is already one of the highest sugar/fat pies, so I feel like the deep-fried version is something they should offer at Heart Attack Grill.

I can't even imagine a more calorically dense food

Go to any state fair. They will deep fry you a whole stick of butter

sure and shots of straight olive oil would be the highest but a stick of butter or a cup of oil don't really feel like food per se, just ingredients

I would eat a fried butter stick though. Probably only once, but I would.

I miss living in New England and going to the Big E : The Eastern States Exposition

It is a SIX-STATE state fair and has a street of miniature versions of all six New England capitol buildings, with cool exhibits and signature food from each state



Go get a baked potato and a blueberry pie in Maine, and some clam cakes and Del's Lemonade in RI

Great poo poo

State fairs are such a weird microcosm of capitalism too. Like they're designed for the express purpose of lower to middle-class people to spend their excess income. Pay for some disgusting food that only tastes good for two bites! Pay for a 3D wax sculpture of your hand! Pay for a picture taken with some barnyard animals! Pay to ride the questionable Ferris wheel! Not to mention the dozens of "merchandise" stalls or tents or whatever they set up. It almost seems like any and all of the fun comes from spending money.

If you live in the Midwest, it's like taking all the stereotypes of the Midwest and condensing it into one outdoors event and then paying to participate even though you live it every day. Maybe they're more fun for city people to experience as like a novelty?

I mean yeah it's capitalism but a lot of the fun at good fairs comes from seeing things you don't see every day. Gigantic pumpkin! Ride a camel/elephant/deathtrap! Stunt shows!

I remember the commercials vividly

They would often start with the introduction
" A building 19 cheap commercial "

And they were frequently sock puppets

https://youtu.be/7VC_5cnd1vs

The second location was called building 19 1/2

Then 1/3 , then 1/4.

I once went to Building 19 1/32

What a glorious poo poo show it all was

Much like how the Inuit have 40 different words for snow, New Zealanders have 40 different terms for loving a sheep.

This can't be true because New Zealand doesn't actually exist.

Years ago I stopped in a place like that in some random small town. It was 5:30pm, the place had about 6 tables, all full of people eating, wait staff serving food, cooks cooking, etc. As soon as we opened the door, everyone stared at me and then cashier yelled, "Sorry! We are closed!"

I never understood why burning a flag as an act of protest or whatever is bad but then they also "retire" a flag by burning it. Either you can burn the loving thing or not.

Not defending flag worship weirdness here but surely you are aware of the concept of context?

There are many, many actions that are extremely bad and wrong in some circumstances that are good and virtuous in others from crossing the street to killing another human being
