Love this analysis of why Google is besting the competition. Best bit: query for "that movie where no babies are born". Fact of the matter is, I ran a similar query last week and Google found me the exact 1990s TV show I was looking for!

It's an exciting time at the Goog!

I would have searched for "movie everyone sterile", but maybe Google had gotten to be so good at natural language that I make it harder.

JEWS AND MUSLIMS BEWARE. This restaurant serves meatballs that are supposedly chicken, beef, veggie or pork options, but in practice all the meatballs except veggie contain pork. This is noted only in tiny letters at the bottom of the menu. While any normal person would assume that a chicken option does not contain the others, and vice versa, this restaurant defies logic by sticking pork sausages inside all their meatballs. Insane. We only found this out after two of the three of us had completed their dish, the third saw something pink inside his chicken meatball. He asked if it was undercooked and the manager nonchalantly said, "no, it's pork sausage" (this was in the chicken meatball). We were completely in shock and didn't know how to respond. Our question about religious and other preferences (all the of us avoid pork for various reasons) was met with apathy and complete disregard. The waiter was flabbergasted as he, being new, didn't even realize that they contained pork and was about as surprised as we were. The friend who found the pork did get a veggie replacement, but since my husband and I had already completed our dishes (one chicken, one beef that both contained pork apparently), no compensation was offered to us. No apology was made whatsoever (except by the poor waiter) and the menu was brought to us to "prove" that it was listed on the menu (again, in a tiny footnote - below the standard foodborne illness warning). Other than that, the food was decent but honestly, we would never come back to a place that so completely disregards a huge religious restriction of several large segments of the population, not to mention dietary restrictions that are not religiously motivated. Craziness.

As others say -- Arif is great, much more professional than a few other tailors in the area. Did a huge set of repairs, in a relatively short amount of time, and (surprise!) was ready in the time that she promised -- all in a decent price. Highly recommended. By the way, the place is a bit hard to find by the address. I drove around for a bit until I discovered that it's tucked behind the Maple Farms store, so just drive into the parking lot for Maple Farms and go around the back. Hours are posted on the door -- M-F 9-5pm, Sat 9-1pm and closed on Sundays.
