Re: Whatever happened to Marie Callender Frozen Dinners(price and quality).

You don't know what you're saying. Tallow, lard and butter are generally saturated fats; they do contain trace amounts of naturally-occurring trans fats, but science hasn't determined how bad these...

Re: When Did Subway Get so Expensive?

Yep. The Publix deli is truly awesome - you can order in-store or with the app, or buy one of their pre-made sandwiches. Man... I could really go to a Publix Cuban right now!

Re: Whatever happened to Marie Callender Frozen Dinners(price and quality).

Re: how much did ray ban wayfarers cost in the early 80s?? or any other year?

I can't remember where I read or heard this - I want to say Freakonomics - but Ray Ban was in such sad shape in 1982 that they only sold something like 18,000 pairs of Wayfarers that year, and were...

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

re: The One and Only Air Compressor Thread (was "Pet Peeves?")
