    Default First world problems

    California's legislature now has a bill making it illegal for a waiter to offer a plastic straw with a beverage. They're worried about landfills.

    I'm reminded of Tres Frijoles' story about the mercado, where he watched a kid pick up straws off the ground, rinse them off, and sell them.

    Well, the legalized theft and marijuana, why not go after restaurant hygiene!

    Condoms and soda straws - make sure they're in the original sealed package.

    What is it about Nicas and their obsession with drinking soda from a straw? Is it that the sensation of lips against the rim of a glass is unpleasant, or somehow uncouth? It can't be that they think the glass is less hygienic, afterall it contains their drink.

    Hey, on the landfill problem: perhaps California should allow a few of Managua's Chureca boys to immigrate for the purpose of teaching creative recycling.

    Duende - what's 'legalized theft'? Taxation?

    In the sanctuary state of California, if an illegal immigrant commits a crime, the Feds can't touch him and he might get off in a trial.

    A friend in the PRK said they have a new law about 3 years hat they give tickets to thieves instead of clogging the courts with trials. They then go steal more to pay the tickets.

    Straws must be used because the cans are dirty from dirty warehouses. Dirt has magical properties and cannot be washed off with soap and water. Or it can't be washed off with dirty water, or whatever.

    A jury in VA recently let a illegal off for grand theft and then chipped in to pay her fine on a lesser charge so she could stick around and have another anchor baby. America is dying of stupidity.
