2. I take back what I said about Groupon going downhill. Just yesterday, I got an offer for $10 worth of fried stuff at Fried and Fabulous for just $5. A fried food cart open from 10pm to 3am in the student ghetto? That's a business plan that couldn't possibly fail. Plus, check out the menu:
I'll take the deep fried cheesecake and a Diet Coke, please.
3. Yesterday a water main broke outside my office, leaving an entire 14-floor building without water. The repair guys were called in, and, when it became obvious that major work (ie, digging a hole with a backhoe) was needed, our plumbing system was hooked up to a fire hydrant using a fire hose. The official word was that everything was fine and there might be a *little* water discoloration but we should just go about peeing and drinking as normal. The unofficial word was DON'T DRINK THE WATER. Despite the saying about drinking from a fire hose, you should not actually drink anything from a fire hose because the inside of a fire hose is nasty.
