Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich?

07 November 2015 - 01:59 AM

Looks like the Internet or at least my twitter feed is talking about whether or not a Hot Dog is a sandwich or not.



Dan Pashman of the Sporkful says: "A sandwich is a piece of meat "sandwiched between bread."



John Hodgman, internet Judge and deranged millionaire says: No way because Pashman's definition makes no sense and you don't slice a hot dog in half.




They are going to debate on this topic live at an event in Brooklyn, New York on November 10th.They have a longstanding feud over this.


But meanwhile, the internet doesn't need these two to decide as:


The Buffalo Bills are divided. http://deadspin.com/...he-b-1740603053


The National Hot Dog Council (which has a vested interested in not declaring a hot dog a sandwich for most likely tax purposes) says no. http://www.theatlant...andwich/414352/


What do you guys think?

Be Wary of Your 401(k) Plans

19 October 2015 - 10:34 AM

Some of you CAGs may have these plans already, but does one actually pay attention to the terms and conditions of their 401(k)s? I just listened to a story about how compounded fees and interests are eating away at these retirement savings, and basically it says that companies will misrepresent how much will be taken out of these plans. 2% may seem like nothing, but it does add up over time. http://www.npr.org/2...-401-k-nest-egg


I guess, invest in a better mattress?

Rite Aid: 800 Plenti Points ($8) for Every $50 Spent in Best Buy Gift Cards (...

13 August 2015 - 10:32 PM

This deal begins on August 16, ends August 22.

Buy $50 worth of Best Buy Gift Cards, get 800 Plenti Points. Look up Plenti points yourself. The skinny is that it's a points savings card that's usable in several stores including Rite Aid, Macy's, Exxon Mobil, etc.

It's an okay deal if you want to stock up for Black Friday.

General PC Problems Thread

19 April 2015 - 10:26 PM

I'm surprised there isn't on this site.


For one I had a hell of an afternoon trying to get a HP Photosmart 7520 to print. The other day I got it working on wireless, and when I used it again, the printer won't do a damn thing, even with upgraded drivers. If I turn the printer off to save energy, the computers note that the printer is offline!


What I found was a hotfix in the regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\ and add a new value SNMPLegacy and set it to 1. It got this 2014 printer to work, despite being a "legacy" fix.
