    Intraday OFFTOPIC Thread: Politics, Religion, Whatever. Enter at your own risk!

    Welcome all to the Intraday OFFTOPIC Thread. This section here is a work in progress. I want to keep as much of the OFF TOPIC chat in this thread here. If it does not directly relate to Sirius, but it deals with daily movements of the stock market or even other stocks, feel free to post it here. This thread is fair game to any and all conversation. (Yes, Including politics).

    We will make this a daily/weekly/monthly thread as demand dictates. Unless it gets out of hand, there will be no moderation within this thread. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

    Tripping,

    That may be true, but the meat is kind of sketchy. Apparently, it is just a grade above dog food....

    http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Taco_Bell

    But is Taco Bell created from grade D meat? Sources say yes. If anyone has worked at Taco Bell, or had a friend, ex-girlfriend, or known someone else who has worked there, they'd know the meat comes in cube-form surrounded by a clear gel packed inside a bag that washes off in hot water most of the time. But the USDA doesn't give out grades for its meat. Instead, it gives them nice names to go along with it. The bottom rung of meat consists of the categories canned, cutter, and commercial. Taco Bell's meat? Canned, cutter, and commercial. The USDA does give out Yield Numbers for their meat, however, with one being the highest and five being the lowest. Taco Bell doesn't have to disclose their meat's Yield Number, though many believe it's four or five.
    Anyway, the rapper 50 Cent sued Taco Bell a little while back for trying to make him more expensive....

    http://www.newsweek.com/id/148995

    And you thought that Taco Bell gave you heartburn? Rapper 50 Cent is suing the fast-food chain for using his name without his permission in ads. The company said it would donate $10,000 to charity if for one day 50 Cent became 79 Cent, 89 Cent or 99 Cent—the price of its tacos. But to 50, that figure was chump change. He wants $4 million in damages for "diluting the value of his good name." But they were making 50 more expensive!

    The nacho cheese sauce is not made with cheese though.....or maybe a very small percentage so that they can still call it "cheese sauce"........

    I never eat at Taco Bell anymore......I always feel sick after.

    There is another taco chain called Taco Bueno and it's a million times better!

    What I really want to try is Taco Town........

    Looks pretty good!
