Sarcastic people are more intellegent. Oh really??? I had no idea....
 
Turns out being sarcastic isn't all that bad. 
Are sarcastic people more creative and intelligent? Harvard research says yes, and here's why.

Taking shorter showers and using a water-saving shower head aren't going to cut it for our planet. A third of the earth's fresh water is used for animal agriculture.  Animal agriculture in the United States consumes anywhere from 486 to over 1,000 times more water than fracking does... and that's saying something!

Came across this Halloween site and I couldn't decide what I thought about this one. Insensitive exploitation or clever commentary? I tend to lean toward the latter because I think it makes people think and puts that dentist in a bad light. What are your thoughts?

We got to go to the Tahitian Terrace Diamond Luau presented at the Disneyland Hotel by Trader Sam. It didn't seem to be the recreation of the original Tahitian Terrace it was billed as, but we still had fun and got some cool swag autographed by the artists who designed it.

Tiki drinks come in all shapes and sizes. They're easy to spot when they're served in tiki mugs with elaborate, flaming garnishes, but there

Recently did a Tiki bar crawl across the bay area, and this was definitely the best place we went to. It had all the quality and ambiance of Smuggler's Cove, but without all the obnoxious drunk hipsters. The music is spot on, and the decor really makes it feel like you're outside on a tropical getaway. The drinks were great, with much care given to quality ingredients and presentation. Of all the tiki bars in the area this is the I plan to spend the most time at.

Any fan of Walt Disney or the history of the Disney Company needs to put this destination at the top of their to-do list. Even those with just a passing interest will find the interactive displays interesting and engaging.

Nice little beach bar right in the middle of downtown. The staff really cared about tiki and the history behind the cocktails they serve. They were attentive and friendly. The drinks were good, but the only food served was from the italian restaurant downstairs which didn't really mesh with the tiki vibe. The music played was a mix of exotica and Elvis, with some other beachy tunes thrown in as well.

I love Ike's. It's so great to have really good sandwiches with phenomenal vegan options, but also things on the menu that meat eaters can drool over.

We sat in the lounge and had some drinks and snacks while looking out at the great view of the marina. The decor is really well done. It feels very much like you're eating in the home of a wealthy sea explorer. The food was quite good, but they could really benefit from some more vegetarian options. The drinks were also very good and it was fun to read through the menu. The staff was friendly and attentive but didn't seem very knowledgeable about the drinks. We also over heard one waitress describe the restaurants trademark menehune to another customer as "some sort of hawaiian voodoo doll." I feel like that kind of basic inaccuracy is indicative of a lack of interest in the company's history. Other than that I thought it was a great experience.

Amazing. The drinks were outstanding (nearly all rum-based, but still creative and unique). You can tell the owners and employees really care about what they're doing. The decor is absolutely fantastic. It really feels like you're in the hull of an old pirate ship. If I didn't know better I'd say I felt like I was actually swaying with the motion of the ocean... though that was probably just the effects of the rum. The music played was appropriately exotic and relaxing. The only problem I have with Smuggler's Cove is that it's arguably too popular for it's own good. There was a line outside, which took us about a half our to get through, and once inside it was hard to really relax because of how noisy the other patrons were. Still giving it 5 stars because the worst thing about it is that it's so popular. ;-)

The decor and atmosphere are the only redeeming quality of this once great tiki lounge. I'm glad that it's still around as a landmark, but I do wish they would embrace their heritage more by eliminating the terrible music played by the talented band and replacing it with more "island" appropriate music. The drink quality was also sub-par and they didn't even offer signature souvenir mugs. Just standard off-the-shelf kind of stuff. The food was expensive and basic chinese take-out quality (with the exception of the Taro dumplings which were still expensive but at leas they were unique and tasty). I'm glad I went here to experience the legend... I just wish it was still as legendary as it once was.
