Feed Me Friday: Everybody's Hungry

Since...umm, smack, smack, Hostess Twinkies, ah, ummmm, lick, smack, hit the shelves earlier this week, lick, wipe, I really don't, umm, have much to say, smack, except - give me another one.  And off we go:

I'll Have a Burger, Fries and Battery: Last time I went through a fast-food drive through, I did not see GPS battery on the menu.  Could be an issue for a recently funded program that will be using GPS tracking to figure out "food shopping patterns" for motor vehicle entrapped Americans. In my mind that amounts to tracking trips to Taco Bell, McDonalds, Wendy's, blah, blah, blah, versus tracking those to Albertson's, Kroger, Safeway, etc. I mean seriously, why would anyone ever get involved in preparing raw food stuffs?:

I'm Late for Dinner!: I don't need no stinking radar detectorlaser jammer, or jamming plates because I've got a state government car and I'm late for dinner! Pedal to the metal!  Seems a few folks in Colorado state government have been caught at: "Do as I say, not as I do":

I thought it was about cube steaks and now come to find out it's about cube sats. More than a few of them are up there going around, maybe someday one of them will be yours. Pass the ketchup:

One Man's Space Junk, Is Another Man's Dinner: Anyone who has ever been to the land of the world's most gifted artisans will get this one. The day after something comes falling out of the sky and hits the ground in the Philippines (typical a military airplane crash), there won't be a shred of anything left at the impact site. That's because all the metal (and everything else) has been hauled off by the locals and re-crafted into some of the most beautiful objects ever created by man - which will then be sold at a market "in the vill".  Now, you too can join the hunt for manna from heaven by monitoring the skies for potential collisions. Only this time those events will be happening a wee bit higher up there:

Hope You Have a Satiating Weekend!
