    ... Brue. I suspect.

    Unless he meant blue humor. But that's kinda redundant given the theme of the rant.

    Never been there, are they like those near-stale flavorless breadsticks that high-class restaurants give you with a plate of oil and somehow expect them to stall you while you wait half an hour for your overpriced dish?

    In that case, yeah, they suck.

    You butter believe it...

    That one didn't discuss the wonders that make up the bread family.
    So sad.

    English Muffins became popular with high end hotels in the early 1900s because they predated sliced bread and were easier to portion out to guests

    I love that this entire thread was co-opted to discuss types of bread and everyones preferences.

    Personally like Danish bread, it's nice and light so therefore lower in calories per slice.

    Olive Garden breadsticks are partially baked in the restaurant, so they are a bit fresher than the near stale flavorless breadsticks. The biggest problem I find with Olive Garden breadsticks (aside for being an Olive Garden dish), is that they are blatently mass produced. There is no care or love in the breadsticks. The are mass manufactured in a factory, partially baked, frozen, then sent to the stores where they put them in the oven for 10 minutes. Basically, Olive Garden sucks. If you like mediocre food like Fridays or Applebees or Chilis and you want Italian food, that is what the olive garden serves.

    Well, you never know- some of what you're describing could also be a symptom of mental illness.

    There're various disorders that can cause people to take miniscule things, like collectibles, and blow them completely out of proportion- financially, socially, and even emotionally.

    If you're dealing with a fan/collector who has OCD, possibly NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder), maybe they're autistic or schizophrenic- there's definitely a chance for conflict, and melodrama.

    I once watched 2 Star Trek guys, at my college, argue for over 2 hours- and I'm 100% convinced that they both had mental illnesses- either that or they'd been single for far too long, and their lack of action was finally effecting their minds.

    Every fandom has bad eggs- some of them are simply assholes, and some of them are genuinely sick in the head. It happens.

    I thought we were talking about bread. Don't go bringing eggs into the equation.
