Saw this a couple months back, but it's truly one of the most out-there supercuts.

Like my review says, it's not the original, but it's about as good it gets.

This is striking; the "continental divide' never really rang true in my head until I saw this (likely because in my mind, the division runs between BC and Alberta).

Waiting to see a follow-up, but if this is true, it's disappointing, and will affect my purchasing decisions.

Yesterday we asked you to use Ford's new van customizer tool to make the best Transit. This wins. Hands down.

This is the gooey nougat-filled center of the Venn diagram that defines me.

Story
Tagline
B.Eng., former IT guy, funky drummer, oft-boorish know-it-all, some monsterism.
Introduction
Yes, I'm the NotMike you're thinking of. I'm a dismantler of things. When I figure them out, I'll even put them back together. In 2009, I completed my degree in Mechanical Engineering at Carleton University in Ottawa, ON.

I'm a classically trained trombone player who competed in Dixieland Jazz at the National level. I'm a self-taught drummer who's performed in front of hundreds. I'm a mediocre guitar player who slurred out some Stompin' Tom Connors songs one time in front of tens of open stage goers.

I'm not exactly Batman, but I am the guy that built not one but two cold-beer dispensing lawn penguins, was a Giant Atomic Seizure Robot, and did some serious work on the Bat Sentry's wings. Okay, that part was pretty Batman.

Prices are reasonable, quantities are excellent, food is impeccable. Decor leaves a little to be desired, but that's the last thing on my list, truth be told. Service is always friendly and quick. UPDATED: New Hong Shing is under new management. Service is still excellent, and the interior has been updated.

Terrible experience today. Everything took entirely too long, and the cheesecake was freezer-burned and rubbery on the outside. Our waitress did eventually comp the stale cheesecake we didn't eat. Two bowls of soup and one coffee: $16.
