22 Short Posts About America (Or Less)

This is an homage to the Simpsons episode 22 Short Films About Springfield, which is itself an homage to the film 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould. We are unlikely to get 22.

Why not a fifth or sixth meal?

This is just a really bad idea. Breakfast is called such because you're breaking a fast that started with dinner, not from when you woke up at midnight with the munchies. It's quite interesting that the Yum! Brands corporate responsibility page says nothing about obesity.

Driving on Nine (Lanes)
It's interesting to be driving around on roads that were actually designed for cars. Your outside mirrors are seldom at risk here.

Push-Button Walk Signals Are A Joke In Yo' Town
Attention Phoenix-area transportation planners: The walk-signal button at Tatum and Doubletree, the one by the Tesseract School, is just a cruel prank you're playing on pedestrians.

DEFRA Saves An Entire Species

This is a golden barrel cactus. It is my favorite type of cactus. On past visits to the Southwest, I have returned home with a golden barrel cactus and eventually killed it. Why this particular grouping of golden barrel cacti is not running in fear from me is uncertain. Perhaps it has something to do with them being plants and not animals. In any case, the DEFRA prohibitions on me bringing live cacti back to London has probably preserved the species.

Chipotle Still Rocks

But I'll let Mrs. Werbenmanjensen wax eloquent about it later.

I will pass your comments about the pedestrian signal along to my brother, who was the director of transportation for the city of Phoenix before he moved on to other things in the city manager's office.
