I have failed to give a food report in a few days! Mostly eating leftovers and just bits of perishables from the fridge. I have managed to eat up a chocolate bar from the pantry though. Taking one for the team. Brought some tea bags into work and am using them rather than having afternoon coffee.

What else besides ramen can you scoop? YOU CAN SCOOP THIS WORLD FROM DARKNESS!

I'm hungry.

Ann, that's a ferret.

I've never been on Route 66. But I live near I-66.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

I did much of route 66 but not on purpose when I moved out to Cali.

Internet's mostly broken at work. But not to here. God bless a lazy DNS server. Or whatever the magic is.

I'm going to get Chinese in a few. Hopefully, they're resolved their steam table issue, and will have scallion pancakes.

Back tattoos of the mother is that you are absolutely right - Ame

Wow, shiny new thread. Love the title. I need some kicks.

Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

I've never been on Route 66. But I live near I-66.

I've driven on parts of it. And on I-40, which parallels Route 66.

Should we be talking about that "new car smell" and arguing over who gets the window seats?

Holy crap, we've got robot avatars now

There's a big meeting across the country. What do you do?

1960: You fly there.
1980: You have a conference call.
2000: You do a video conference.
2010: You fire up your robot avatar at the location.

Pardon? Yep, it's for real, folks. A company called Anybots has created a prototype of a robot that will serve as a person's physical presence in a remote location. You log in through the Internet and after a few keystrokes the 'bot, called QB, comes alive, leaving its charging station and ready to meet, brainstorm, greet visitors or just generally creep people out.
