I'm sorry, but this forum is better with Niche, Red, and Meme contributing.

Agreed. Actually, I could have done without meme's recent reappearance to gripe about why he left. I'll try to remember him for the old days (way back in 2008).

I am sorry that this has not been resolved.

My HAIF cards just came in the mail! biggrin.gif

It's going to take a while to distribute them.

i placed twenty cards in our company kitchen on friday and all but five were gone by the end of the day. i think the kids from marketing must have taken a liking to them.

What is up with some Texans' extreme opposition to chili with beans? I'm as carnivore as they come, but I'm pro-bean. Chili with beans (with cheese and peppers on top) is a real meal. Chili without beans is a hot dog topping.

there's a whole thread on this somewhere which morphed off of a chili recipe i posted.

here it is.

I agree to an extent. As in, I even like my chili-cheese dog topping to be Wolf Brand w/ beans.

Beans just make the chili better. Unless they're lima beans or green beans, that would be strange.

I take my chili with the beans, without the meat.

Never really gotten to like beans in anything. In fact, I don't like beans at all to such an extreme, that my family forced me to turn in my "Mexican" card.

I just read about RedScare, and TheNiche, and Editor, and memebag. I am sad. I hope they (can) come back, I will miss their insightful voices.

Something about the situation reminds me of Vachel Lindsay's elegiac 1919 poem "Bryan, Bryan, Bryan, Bryan" about William Jennings Bryan and the defeat of populism (what we would call liberalism today) at the turn of the last century. Here are the last few stanzas.

Where is McKinley, Mark Hanna's McKinley,

His slave, his echo, his suit of clothes?

Gone to join the shadows, with the pomps of that time,

And the flame of that summer's prairie rose.

Where is Cleveland whom the Democratic platform

Read from the party in a glorious hour,

Gone to join the shadows with pitchfork Tillman,

And sledge-hammer Altgeld who wrecked his power.

Where is Hanna, bulldog Hanna.

Low-browed Hanna, who said: “Stand pat”?

Gone to his place with old Pierpont Morgan.

Gone somewhere... with lean rat Platte.

Where is Roosevelt, the young dude cowboy,

Who hated Bryan, then aped his way?

Gone to join the shadows with mighty Cromwell

And tall King Saul, till the Judgment day.

Where is Altgeld, brave as the truth,

Whose name the few still say with tears?

Gone to join the ironies with Old John Brown,

Whose fame rings loud for a thousand years.

Where is that boy, that Heaven-born Bryan,

That Homer Bryan, who sang for the West?

Gone to join the shadows with Altgeld the Eagle,

Where the kings and the slaves and the troubadours rest.

I don't MIND my chili with beans, I just prefer it not to have them. If it does have them, I prefer black beans, but that is rare and hard to find.

Chili... beans... cheese... peppers...

Lord, have mercy.

It may be good going down, but... you're gonna pay dearly for that later...

Vachel Lindsay quoted on HAIF - will wonders never cease. You, sir, are a scholar and a gentleman. B)

To me it looks like dog food without the beans.

But then, I add beans and celery and other things to stretch the chili into several meals.

Leave it to HAIF to have a single thread about both beans and poetry.

Awww, thanks. Vachel Lindsay is amazing, that's all I can say. I urge everyone to go read the whole poem. It'll break your heart, make you laugh out loud, take your breath away, and teach you a lot about 1890s political history.

That's my wife's problem. And I have a baby to blame on the smells...do it all the time. She's cute so she can get away with it.

Ha. Whenever my wife asks "What's that smell?" I always say "Your gas is as good as mine!" :lol:

Beans, beans, Good for the heart.

The more you eat, the more you fart.

Edit:

If i hadn't done that, someone else would have. Sorry.

Of course the other great poem about beans is:

Beans, beans, the magical fruit.

The more you eat, the more you toot.

The more you toot, the better you feel.

Let's have beans at every meal!

Yessir, that's the beans poem I grew up with.

My dad, god love him, recently taught it to his 7 year old granddaughter. Oh, the circle of life!

That's fun. When I lived in Wisconsin there was a tiny little 250-watt daytime-only AM station that played polka. A little mom-and-pop operation on the edge of a lake out in farm country bouncing polka music off the cows. Very quaint.

Since then, it's been bought by one of the big radio chains and now squeaks out satellite-fed ESPN Radio. Sad.

Before or after you ate it?

That's the funniest thing I've heard all day...+1 for you. laugh.gif

I'd like to explain myself for the bizarre posting behavior I've done recently, but not until the "Jerk Meter" (and possibly "The HAIF/Alcohol Paradox") threads are locked. unsure.gif

Short version...I'm sorry.

Long version...coming soon.

Can't say I am curious, but I guess I will take the wait and see approach.

Hate to break it to you, but no tragedies or substance abuse took place...just a few good ideas that made really bad threads. Now, the reason I was banned from another site did have reasons (and their diplomacy is terrible).

look like the heights fire bug is no longer a mystery. lol

Speaking of fires, there was a REALLY bad fire out here on FM 1960 this past weekend. It totally destroyed Cornelius nursery. Now here is the odd part ...

... They have had signs up saying "Everything 50% off ... Closing (or moving...)"

I find it highly odd they would just burn down before a big move...

That is the second Cornelius that burned up in the last couple of years.
