    yep my great of Texas missed the top ten, dang! but at least we are dead last in high school graduation rates, and number one in childhood food insecurity at 4.2 million. Yes, 4.2 million children in Texas do not have regular access to food, much less healthy food. But gaddammit we are the second biggest economy in 'Murica, and we don't have debt like Kalifornia. So keep your children hungry and illiterate and you to can be debt free!!!
    Nevermind all these issue facing the country....lets all freak out over plastics straws and what other states do which...really doesnt effect us.

    Maybe there's a market for hollow chopsticks -- sort of the Asian spork?

    You must be a Harley guy... they come by here too. Usually it is around 1 in the morning, when everybody is asleep. They rev their engines to see which one is the loudest, and wake my boy up in the process. They must be trying to compensate for their other shortcomings.

    Are you kidding? Why would you assume such a nasty thing. I know guys love their big fat hogs and that's great. Sweet looking bikes with a great purpose (cruising). But... not built for splitting lanes. No. I ride a Ducati. Small, nimble, and quick. And I do not believe in "loud pipes save lives". Totally hate loud pipes.

    Also... for you guys crying about cutting in line, etc. It's legal here in Cali! Wait my turn? lol. So funny. In 90 degree heat? Nope.

    Yay! Ducati. Me too
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Ducati... saw one on the 101 freeway around 1030 this morning. Two wheeled Ferrari. I appreciate the art of the motorcycle, but I never got the need for having one. Snowmobiles were more my style.

    There are no food trucks left in California. They all went out of business buying silverware, just to have people throw it away.
    And now, we have another crisis on our hands. The oceans are filled up with silverware, and it is now illegal too. :unamused::wink:

    At my last 'real' job, we had compostable (or is that compostible? I have trouble spelling words with schwa sounds in 'em) flatware. Not sure of what material they were made -- some depths are better left unplumbed ;)

    Yes there are plastic utensils here. One of my favorite local restaurants is an all-outdoor dining place that only uses plastic plates, utensils, and cups. even the wine glasses are plastic.

    I know it's against the law to smoke a Camel in your car in certain places too. Especially during dry season.

    You must know Camels are against the law in Kalifornia?

    If you have a farm where you remove milk from a camel, would that be considered a dromeDAIRY?

    Then I'm confused, plastic straws.....according to California anyway, find their way into the ocean but other plastics don't ? I mean...if ya ban one you have to ban all, no ?

    Maybe my mistake is trying to make sense out of the senseless.

    Yes, it's like trying to make sense out of "gender neutrality" while fighting for "women's right's". Re-read that and think about that for a moment.

    This is the result of common sense's death. You end up with entire villages of town idiots.

    I think 1/4 of our university students are bitten by something.

    Common sense isn't so common anymore and hasn't been since that woman spilled coffee in her lap at McDonald's drive thru.

    Tearing down statues and stomping on their heads... :o It's almost out of control and headed one or two steps to somewhere worse.

    No need for confusion. Straws are not banned where I live which is in California.
