Grilled Cheese Invitational Rules!




Grilled Cheese Invitational Rules!

This sounds like a fun place to go.



NO FLAME-THROWERS!

Yes, this means you. No ice-melters, Molotov cocktails, you name it. If you bring something that even vaguely resembles a flame-thrower you WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.





Have sex with somebody before the competition - Let your hair down and relax, then come and grill cheese. You'd be surprised how much of a difference it really makes in the grill.

What Power Looks Like

What Power Looks Like | Newsweek International Edition | Newsweek.com

Fascinating article on "The Superclass". From the article "being a member of the superclass means being able to "get to anybody in the world with one phone call.""

And from David Brin's blog posting this morning: The next few decades will in part revolve around whether these people decide to side with Western Civilization... and with our children ... or instead, they give into the blandishments of ego and human nature, doing what you or I might do, if we stood in their $20,000 loafers.

It's not going to be a boring time ahead for anyone.
